    Well, as I've mentioned, the concept came from James Mishler, a noteable Mystara fan. All I really did was realign the map to center the continents and then give it an artistic touch.

    Being a fan of both Greyhawk and the Known World, and to a far lesser extent, the Mystara 2e material, I loved the idea of combining the two worlds, effectively doubling the material available to a campaign. From my vague recollections of Gygax and Kuntz tales of the early GH campaign, there seemed to be somewhat frequent portals and gates to the opposite side of the world, and though neither Greyhawk or Mystara now has a strong asian culture that I think Gygax had in mind, it may be time to open those portals back up, and let the people of the settings interact. Also, as I follow up on this, as mentioned in my response to Scott below, it will become apparent that there are still huge swaths of land left undeveloped, so dropping an asian culture, or any other material a DM might find interesting, into the world will still be easy. This is not an attempt to codify the entire contents of the world map.

    As you guessed, the contents of the Dragon Annual Oerth map are ignored totally. A large portion of Mystara's 'Skothar' continent was removed, and Oerik, as depicted in the 83 box maps, was grafted on. Karameikos, Alphatia and the rest of the Known World and Mystara developed regions are far to the west of Oerik, and intact on this map.

    As for the Isle of Dread, it lies far to the west, in the center of the sea of Dread, south of Karameikos. I disliked the idea of moving it to Greyhawk.
