Well met sages!

I'm looking to fill out my collection of old sourcebooks and modules which contain the fold out poster maps, ESPECIALLY those that fit together, but I'm struggling to find a list which lists the books that have fold out maps and which have maps that fit with the main CS.

From what I've gathered thus far, FR3 Empires of the Sands connects to the maps provided in the original boxed set Campaign setting. Are there more that fit this to form a massive map of all of Faerun?

I currently have:

1st ed Campaign Setting (grey box)
City System
City of Splendors
Ruins of Undermountain

While the later 3 dont 'fit together' per say, they are Waterdeep and the first level of UM so its related.

I understand Shadowdale FRE1 has a map of Shadowdale and the areas surrounding it.

If someone knows of an existing list that details the maps contained in each product you can just point me there.

Yes I do realize there are digital maps available online, but I cant hang those on my walls nor will most print shops print them due to copyrights.

I intend to, basically, wall paper the entire downstairs of my house in maps of Toril.

I've never tried connecting the maps from different sources...

But here's one thing: if it was one of the boxed sets of 2E, it had 2-4 poster maps, at least. 10 in one case.

I actually wound up with a bunch of duplicate maps, from the boxed sets... By chance, my maps were separated from the rest of my stuff when I lost all my gaming material. So when I replaced it, I had the maps from the ones I'd originally purchased, and the maps from the replacements.

-DRAGON Magazine had probably the best fold-out maps, with issues 287-290 having four big posters of the map.I think the FRCS did too, except on one sheet of paper?

-Honestly, you best bet in my opinion, is to take Mark's maps and have them printed to whatever scale you want to use. Those are all on the same scale and are all mapped out in the same style at least.

I have the boxed sets i listed above.

The 1e FRCS had 4 maps. They fit together in 2 sets, so 2 maps each. One is a zoomed out view of a larger area and then the other 2 got together to make a map of a Moore zoomed in regional area.

I found a listing on wikipedia that said the Empires of the Sands also had 2 maps that fit onto the edge of the maps in the FRCS. It also listed The Savage Frontier has 2 maps detailing the Northlands and the Trackless Sea but doesn't elaborate on if it fits with the others. The problem is that wikipedia entries for these are commonly by different authors and inconsistent in what and how they provide details on

So from what i can gather the following alsi contain maps that are likely part of the same set

FRCS
Empires of the Sands
Moonshae
The Savage Frontiers
Dreams of Red Wizards
Bloodstone Lands
Old Empires
Dwarves Deep
Anauroch
The Great Glacier
Ruins of Adventure
Jungles of Chult
Ronin Challenge
Test of the Samurai

I think that's all that have a major area map. The Ronin Challenge and Test of the Samurai might only have city maps or rural locals, it isn't specific.

And there's a lot of other products with local maps like Waterrdeep, the city system, ruins of undermountain. But like, the wikipedia doesnt even list Ruins of Zhentil Keep so i don't know how complete this is

I know. I've got like 3 sets of those maps... And no wall big enough for them.

All of the regional accessory maps from the old FR# sourcebooks appeared to be drawn to the same scale and "joinable" to the bigger Heartlands/Inner Sea maps of the FR 1E boxed set until the map in FR10 Old Empires came along. That map was noticeably smaller in scale and didn't fit the others. My dream of a massive connected FR map died that day ...
