Not that I've ever seen. In 4e it's become part of the Feywild and is, I think, the Aglarond analogue there.

EDIT: also, google Fractal Terrain Demo. It's a really handy and simple utility for randomly generating vaguely realistic looking landscapes and such. You could just poke that until it makes a cool shape and start working from there.

Oh, very interesting! Thank you very much, Cleric! And I didn't realize that that particular area had also been taken into the Feywild, but then I'm not one that keeps up on 4E. I do have to say though that I hope the nilshai were finally stopped from burrowing in to their domain. I have an adventure set aside that's still being prepared in my mind where the PCs go and lend their aid to stop them from messing with Sildeyuir. Again, my thanks!

The Nilshai aren't mentioned specifically in reference to Sildeyuir, but the FRCG does mention that there are bits left over from the demi-plane's transition to the Feywild that are inhabited by 'strange monsters'...

Oh thank you thank you thank you! May I ask to continue the Shou Lung map down the coast to include Laothan? Perhaps a central one to bridge the gap across Tu Lung? (I'd love the coastline)

Thank you again for doing the map. It's wonderful to see.

As am I... but I'm more intrigued by all the locations in Raurin that I was heretofore unaware of...

Question for you, Rob... would you be interested in doing a map of Netheril (either pre-Anauroch or post-Anauroch; my preference is the former, as shown in the Arcane Age boxed set and Lost Empires of Faerun)? Ideally, one that could be pasted seamlessly over Anauroch in the main map; the main consequence of the Spellplague in my Realms (apart from the emergence of Laerakond) is the un-desertification of Anauroch (this begins with the war between Shade and the Phaerimm, which takes some different turns in my Realms), and I'd like to have a map... obviously, the pre-Fall of Karsus locations would be ruins, except for the floating enclaves, whose final locations are mostly unknown in the present Realms.

Obviously, the main Toril map is your first priority for this community, so if you don't have time for such a project, I understand. Just in case it wasn't already apparent, we love these maps!

On that note... a couple more requests for you:

- the Lands of Intrigue (Amn/Tethyr/Calimshan)... unless, of course, you're still working on locating those two missing mythals of Keltormir; if so, I can wait... Edit: May 8: That's one missing mythal (Myth Unnohyr is the only one in that neck of the woods that I can't find on your map); amazing job there, Rob!

- erm... well... okay, I'll be honest; I just wanna see the whole thing in all its glory! I'll try to be patient and wait for the whole thing in some form... just in case I get impatient, a clip of Impiltur and the Vast would be great... edit: found my other request; sorry.

Thanks!

Edit: also May 8: Fixed misidentification of mythal... is that a mythidentification? R. I. P. Robert Asprin.

Also: Another typo: In northern Calimshan, the "Iltaker Garrison" should be the "Iltakar Garrison".

Playing in the Realms since the Old Grey Box (1987)... and *still* having fun with material published before 2008, despite the NDA'd lore.

If it's comparable in power with non-magical abilities, it's not magic.

Heh... on a second look at your "Lake of Steam" map, I found Myth Dyraalis... was that a late addition, or did I miss it the first time around? I wouldn't be surprised at the latter; you did a great initial job finding stuff.

Again, these maps are great; the "other request" in my edit above was for Cormyr and the Dalelands... but I seem to remember a clip of Murghom and Semphar, and for some reason I can't find it now... either I'm hallucinating or I'm going blind. Hopefully the former; I haven't seen nearly enough of these maps yet.

Edit: May 8: I found Murghom and Semphar... on the Hordelands map... and I seem to recall that Semphar has a circumflex on the "a" (as Murghom does on the "o")... I'm too impatient to fiddle with the Windows Character Map and I have better things to remember than control key sequences; my apologies, and I hope that's clear. I also found Myth Lharast (on the Tethyr map again).

Vaasa has some new pre-Spellplague geographical areas and sites added in recently. Might want to edit the map to include these locales in it:

honkin' big link

Well, not all of them. A few are post-Spellplague it seems. I'm just unsure which ones. It also shows some of Thar, Pelvuria, and western Damara. Of the sites I know to be Post-Spellplague concerning Vaasa is justFugue. Not all of these places were given description in Dungeon Magazine #177.

One can rule that Kultaakar/Baunilorotha are both Post-Spellplague, but the descriptions states the region was once an ancient kingdom of Ostoria that, for decades, giants have been moving into and reconstructing in Baunilorotha. So I can see the the flowering of this nation and site working in pre-Spellplague times also.

Mod edit: Cast shrinky link.

Wow. Just wow. Excellent work Rob. Thank you again, so very much.
At some point, if you ever split this all into 'bite sized portions,' I'll be happy to be able to put everything together as you did (that 'whole map of Toril' has long been a desired possession. You are making that happen. Thank you).

I'll reiterate, this is wonderful work there. I'm glad MarkusTay's work inspired you. I love the comparison in details for your maps, and I love the fact that you have taken SOOOOO much time to do this.

I'd love to see more of the Kara Tur region, but I've taken so much of your time already. If you're feeling generous, the mountain range that separates the Hordelands & the rest of Faerun proper (into the Yamunkahar (sp?) ) would be awesome.
