I was wondering which map version folks have used that looked good in a very large format, say 44" x 44" or 44" x 60" or so?

I am looking for one that shows as many places as possible, and as much detail as possible.

Area is "The North", generally from Daggerdale up to Icewind Dale, and East to the desert.

Any suggestions, and/or links (free use) greatly appreciated! Thanks

The best fan-created map I know of was made by a CK user called HandsomeRob. It's stunning, and covers the entire world. It is also, sadly, more than 800 MB, so I can't exactly email it to you. But if you search the boards, you might find the link (and it might still be active).

Doggedly converting 3e back to what D&D should be...
Sigh... And now 4e as well.

I did a search but didn't see anything. I really want to check this thing out!

I've printed a ton of Markustay's maps and most of them blowup nicely with crisp lettering:

Here's the link to the appropriate thread. The download link is highlighted in yellow. I have no idea if it's still live, though.

I would also recommend that instead of trying to find and then print a good digital copy, hit eBay or NobleKnight.com for either the 1E or 2E FRCS boxed sets - the maps in those should suit your purposes well.

Does anyone have a working link for Handsome Rob's Toril map or even just the Northwest section? I'm trying to order a table cloth sized map and I need his high rez file like right now. None of the links seem to be working. Help! Thanks.

Have you tried the map from Mike Schley? It is very high res, and I've seen people take it and get different banners, tablecloths, etc made from it.

Sadly I can't have 5th edition. Plus it's a great map, but it's missing like 90% of the relevant details, like roads, towns etc.

I rolled a 1. I believe This is the Handsome Rob map? I'm part ferret. I had it stashed in my Dropbox and forgot about it. I hope it works for you.
