I seem to recall one of the scribes here had been working on an updated map of Baldur's Gate but I can't remember who. I'm actually looking to center a campaign around this area and I'm wondering if anyone here has succeeded in their efforts to draw/craft an accurate map of Baldur's Gate.

Thanks for any help.

Learned Scribe ElfBane,

I can't disagree with you there. I looked through several sources and I couldn't find one that inspired me like the mega Waterdeep map I have for example. So, I figured while I look for others, that may be better, I'd throw that one out as a placeholder. :)

Best regards!

Learned Scribe Ty,

I have a site for you to check out you might like! :)

Unfortunately, from what I could find, this appears to be a city not fleshed out like Waterdeep for example.

Best regards,

Doh! Good call SirUrza. Now I feel a wee bit *baaaaahh* sheepish.

(mutters incomprehensibly as he looks back at books he has previously bought)

I like the map on page 12 in Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast. :)

Thanks Kent.

Those are some interesting sites offering some various ideas regarding Baldur's Gate but unfortunately, it's not *quite* what I was looking for.

I'm thinking back on it (and maybe I need to scour Kuje's word document to find out who) and I recall that someone is crafting a specifically Greenwood-Realms accurate map of Baldur's Gate rather than the BGI and II series computer game maps.

I know that the map in the Forgotten Realms Adventures book was useful (and I have to find that darn thing in the basement, buried as it is by pictures, spare couches, and the general assortment of nicknacks and paddywacks my wife has accumulated) but I also believe that someone pointed out several errors on that same map. Ah well, time to use the Find function...

Not sure if it will help (or even safe) http://www.sorcerers.net/Games/BG/index_maps.php offers maps as downloads the cliams are impersive though as to amount of detail offered.

http://www.dudleyville.com/bg1/megamap.htm also offers maps and some keys, for one of the games that might be useful.
