Anyone have a physical copy of City of Gold?

My pdf copy is missing a map piece, and I am right in the middle of trying to piece the map back together. I used to have these maps, but like everything else, they were lost in the fire. The piece that says 'Dog People' was scanned twice, hence the problem (pieces 6 & 7 of the 8 are the same). If anyone has a better pdf, or can scan e that page, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks - Mark

EDIT: Nevermind - I found another pdf of it on my computer, scanned at a higher resolution, that has the missing piece. Now I have one piece that doesn't match the others, but oh well. I'm not going to start over. its just for reference, after all.



Hey Markustay.... I'm not sure where I found it, but someone had scanned in the entire city of gold map as a png and put the pieces together. Its not pretty but its better than looking at it as separate pages. If you want to PM me an address, I'll gladly send it your way.

Also, I've been playing around with campaign cartographer and recently did my own version of that region. Its horrid compared to your work, but if you'd like it, I'm willing to share that as well.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Naw, I'm good. Thanks though. That scanned-in map would have saved me some time, but I've gotten pretty fast at pasting them back together. That was one of the very few I never bothered to do before.

Working on the Maztica + Abeir map again... amongst other things.

Hi. I'm wondering if Seethyr is still working in this project.

As for Abeiran stuff, I've finished the Brimstone Angels saga. If Markustay need help with lore about Abeir nature, you can contact me here or in the FR wiki.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Well, this (map) project is on the back-back burner for now. I have no idea if Seethyr is continuing this.

I am trying to finish one map today which I shouldn't have even bothered with (it was just too cool once I began paying around), and then I still want to re-release my Eastern Heartlands map (Director's Cut), and finally finish the last couple of things I never got to on my Shaareach map (which will be another re-release).

And all of that, before I get back to the actual NEW project I am doing. And once the first two installments of THAT is done, I'll get back to Returned Abeir & Maztica... maybe. Although, honestly, I'm just not 'into it' that much anymore (the hybrid version). I think Ed's RA lore would be better-served somewhere 'closer to home', as in, 'Faerūn proper'. Halruaa-lovers weren't too thrilled with my last solution, so I'm still mulling it all over. Perhaps in place of Lantan? (and PLEASE, there can't possibly be that many 'Lantan lovers' out there, could there be? Who the heck was using it?!)

Dammit... now you have me thinking about this again... I may need to take some Ritalin...

I don't see a lot of Lantan lovers, but Returned Abeir dwarfs Evermeet by like triple its size and Evermeet dwarfs by like double its size.... unless I'm misreading you and you're just wanting to stick it off the western coast of Lantan... which yeah, that could work.... Nelanther pirates nearby... Chult nearby... Moonshaes nearby unless you make it southwest of Lantan.

In Volo's guide it has the Tabaxi worshipping the Cat Lord, not the Maztican Gods.

Volo's Guide mentions a god that some Tabaxi worship. If there's one thing I've learned it's that no god has exclusive control over any given race. Some lizard folk worship someone other than Semuanya, some bugbears worship someone other than Hruggek, etc...

Oh, and also

But IIRC there was something about monopoly on drider form being one of the few things about which Lolth is consistent?
Specifically, that unless this transformation is performed in the authorised way (by her priestess via specific ritual with a Handmaiden present), this attracts Spider Queen's own attention - the victim reverts in a few rounds no matter what spell it was, and for the transgressor, well, things are bound to get ugly and personal.

Just for Shiggles (thanks Wooly ), my 'Maztica Pantheon IS the Draconic Pantheon' table (with a couple of extras)

Maztica/Draconic Pantheon


Azul  (LE)        'Giver of Rain, Taker of Breath'      Null (LE)           Dragon god of Death (Falazure)
Eha  (CN)               Wind Sprite (Breath)            Asterinian (CN)         Messenger of Asgorath
Kiltzi  (CG)          Health, Growth, & Love            Hlal (CG)           Humor, inventiveness, pleasure
Kukul  (N)         “Ancient Father of the Gods”         Io (N)                   Father of Dragonkind
Maztica  (N)          aspect of Earthmother             World Serpent (N)     Reality (Prime Material)
Nula  (CN)             Guardian of Animals              Kareska (CN)          Goddess of Dragon Magic
Plutoq  (LN)      Earth God (punishes insolence)        Lendys (LN)               God of Justice     
Qotal   (LG)          'The Feathered dragon'            Bahamut (LG)            'The Justicemaker'
Tezca  (CE)            God of sun and fire              Garyx (CE)          God of fire and destruction
Watil  (NG)               Guardian of Plants            Tamara (NG)              'Goddess of Life'
Zaltec  (CE)           Warbringer, Heart-Eater          Zehir (NE)             'The Dark Whisperer'

Theoretical:
Quetzalcoatl – Jazirian
Tlazolteotl - Sharess

From Anchoromé:
Coyote - Nathair Sgiathach (although I picture him having a Capuchan Monkey aspect in Maztica).
Raven - Asterinian


Null is actually perfect for Azul - he has two aspects, one a 'bringer of life', the other, of death (just like Azul). Kereska is probably the biggest stretch, but I figure its a 'primal thing' - the power of Raw magic is connected to the pure physicality (strength, constitution) of The Prime Material, which is represented by 'the Beast' (primal power). I look at it this way - primitive cultures are very concerned with their livestock, and a lot of their magic probably revolves around using and protecting that, so over time, magic itself becomes affiliated with beasts. Plus, there is the whole 'guardian spirit' thing where tribal magic is concerned. Like I said, thats a stretch, but the rest are good fits.

I wish I could take credit for inventing that one. I just happened to overhear some random person at GenCon say it.
