VMs: Which way is up?

Further to my last,

        The castle could also be South if the 'map' is upside down. Each
'roadway' in between
rosettes has a word to the left and right. The words appear to be written as
though the reader is
walking clockwise around the map. The words inside the roadway (when there
are some) also appear
to be written this way (except the northeast rosette by the castle). Even
the words inside the rosettes
seem to run clockwise as well (with the exception of the southwest and
northeast rosettes).
