Can you extend time stop?

Time stop has a “duration” of 1d4+1 rounds, but it says it’s apparent time and to see the text for further explaination. Knowing this, I wanted to understand wheter it’s possible or not to extend time stop making it last 2d4+2 rounds.

Looking on the internet I have found people simply saying that i can be extended since it has a duration entry and it’s not instantaneous, and people saying that the spell is essentially instantaneous even though it has a duration entry and can’t be extended. If I wanted to use it as RAW as possible, what would be the correct way to interpret the spell?

Does the map of Barovia extend beyond the top and bottom of the map?

I’m currently running Curse of Strahd and plan on extending the adventure beyond the end of the published material. There are a couple of areas that the party have not gone to and I do not expect they will go to before finishing the adventure, but otherwise, I don’t want us to be just going through all the same old locations again; I wanted to add some new areas and extra content.

Looking at the map of Barovia on p. 35, I can see that the left and right edges of the map are likely the edges of Barovia, since the right hand edge is labelled A, which is where the party first arrive after walking through the fog (which I take to mean that going back in that direction just leads them getting lost and spat back out into the map, as per “Mists of Ravenloft”, pp. 23-24), and the left hand edge is likely more of this fog, given the description in Chapter 14: Yester Hill (p. 200):

This is the reasoning I’m using to conclude that the left and right edges of the map really are the edges of Barovia itself, and that there is nothing further in either direction (although, if I’m wrong about this conclusion, I’ll happily be challenged on that in an answer).

My question, however, is about the top and bottom edges of the map. At the top of the map is Mount Baratok and the various locations marked M. The bottom of the map is Mount Ghakis and a road that leads south from Amber Temple (although this could just lead off the edge of Barovia like A and road that leads west from Krezk, but it could be a road to somewhere else in Barovia). There’s nothing written in this adventure that implies that these are the edges of Barovia itself (yes, there’s the “fog effect” around the edges of the map, but I assume that’s just for style, since otherwise Barovia is a neat rectangle shape – unlikely).

Of course, I as the DM could just decide that these aren’t the edges of Barovia as that suits my purposes, and if it turns out that these are actually edges of Barovia, that’s likely what I’ll do, but I wanted to know if there was anything published about Barovia (likely from older editions of D&D, but if there is anything I’ve missed in 5e, I’d prefer that) that describe what might be beyond the edges of the map. Are there any maps in previous editions that roughly match up with the map I’m using that shows anything further north and south, or anything I’ve missed in 5e Curse of Strahd?
