[Found Treasures] Wilderlands of the Forgotten Realms

Stumbled across this old map while going through a pile of old writings. Not quite sure when I drew this, could be anywhere from mid-'90s to early '00s, would have been a time when I was fiddling around with both the Wilderlands and the Forgotten Realms.
 
No longer have the original file, this is a scan from a much-faded print. I don't recall doing any development of this version of the setting(s), as really, not much needed to be done to kludge them together like this.
 
Everything really fits nicely, with the western Wilderlands merging nicely with the vaguely Arabic Semphar and the eastern Wilderlands nestling quite nicely together with the Mongol/Chinese region of Kara-Tur. Heck, even the Karakhans make perfect sense; descended from a mix of wizards from Shou-Lung and Tuigans from the Plain of Horses who founded their own independent kingdom of Karak. You've got the Great Glacier/Sea of Ice to the north and the weird lands of the Utter East of the Forgotten Realms mixing it up with the Demon Lands of the southern Wilderlands...

Two Great Tastes that Play Great Together?
