The four treasure map pieces? Check out page 22 of the rule book, it discusses them in detail.

In brief, if the heroes finish the 3rd level of a dungeon, they get one of the corners to the treasure map. Once all 4 pieces have been discovered, they can go to a treasure site and dig up a random piece of treasure (there are I think 5 or so treasure cards that are pretty powerful).

I mean the dungeon map/terrain tiles. The terrain part seems like it goes with RtL, not Sea of Blood.

The tiny corner pieces are used in a lot of the dungeons in SoB. The back side is an outdoor tile since ever since RtL they've simply printed the back of these tiles to be outside tiles. Look at Tomb of Ice, all the dungeon tiles have outside tiles but aren't very useful if you don't have RtL (well, not entirely true since they introduced the inside-to-outside pieces).

They may make an RtL+SoB expansion (though not sure how likely since they rarely make expansions that require other expansions) or just use them in custom maps.

Thanks!

One more question: on the island, is that green fuzzy stuff all scrub?

Yep. Good luck with your ranged and magic heroes on island maps.

Exactly, easy to overlook too. It just keeps things a little tighter. Don't forget either that the printed trees on the island are "trees", which block LOS and provide ShadowCloak to figures in that space.
