Hello everyone.

Recently, I purchased some vintage Forgotten Realms material online and was sent an additional item by this generous lady. The item in question is a large folded map (a poster, perhaps?) of The Dalelands that originates from, hm...early to mid Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition. I don't want to unfold the map for scanning because it's in a sealed bag and looks to be still crisp/brand new. After conducting a basic image search, I found an example of this map's art style here.

With the above information, can one of you fine folk please tell me which box set or book - if any - included this map? I'd like to know the answer for collection purposes.

Learned Scribe Azar,

Yeah, that map comes from the Dalelands FRS1 sourcebook, if I recall correctly.

You're lucky to have that. Was it FRS1 that you got?

Best regards,

That is absolutely correct; why I didn't think to check out a supplement titled The Dalelands is beyond me .

I purchased the MC3 Monstrous Compendium (primarily for the Oriental dragons), actually. No...the vendor was simply munificent and included an extra unrelated AD&D 2e product.

FRS1 The Dalelands was missing the maps of Archenbridge and Essembra. That errata can be found in Dragon #205 (May 1994). (Some sellers on eBay will include the errata with if they're aware it was published.)

I recall right after first reading through FRS1 that I wrote TSR. They mailed me back that issue of the Dragon. Since I already had a subscription, that issue of The Dragon has remained sealed up.

Learned Scribe Rymac,

That is awesome you have that Dragon in a bag. Very nice!

I completely forgot about those maps in Dragon #205. What a trip looking back at the cover. That cover is very memorable though!

It's not just "in a bag". It's properly sealed up in clear plastic and a card-stock backing.

Learned Scribe Rymac,

No offense meant against by my clearly uncouth commentary regarding proper storage procedures. I fear I am quite inadequate in both my appreciation and skill when it comes to such collecting! Congratulations on the collection and the proper storage of it too! :)
