Default Who drew this map?

I'm in the midst of making a big map of Pern that contains all the information we know so far - hold names, terrain, stakes, etc - and I want to know if I can use this existing map as a base: http://www.agriphoto.nl/pma/Maps%20a...Map%20002.html

Who do I email to ask permission to trace over this map?

Try emailing Xanadu Weyr (online role playing website), if it still exists. That's where I got the picture.

Though I think this map itself is based on the one appearing in The Stars of Pern!

Ah! Found it! It's on the PernWorld MUSH site, and is attributed to Mynti, who used one of the Neils Erickson maps.

I've sent someone on the site a letter, asking them to forward it on to Mynti, requesting if I can use their base (and apologising profusely for doing things in the wrong order - drawing the map before asking permission)

I actually started drawing this two or three years ago before I was familiar with proper art protocol, using that as a base, but then I realised that I needed to ask the person in question first, so I abandoned the project up until recently, whereupon I have now nearly finished the map, and sent word to the user in question.
