Also included on the page are a new world map of Toril and a link to a blank, "clean" version of the map which people are welcome to use for their home campaigns, especially useful since 5E has apparently reverted back to the 1E/2E version of the continent and the world.



I registered just to say I really appreciate these maps.
My group has been playing a campaign for the last 3 years set in Vassa, The Ride, Thar, Damara, and The Great Glacier. The maps that I have found aren't the best, but these ones you have provided are fantastic! My group is fully planning to use them as a resource if you don't mind!

We also have a second campaign taking place in Maztica, so that map is also very helpful. Thank you!



aw.. lucky playerd there. I would be satisfied just sailing the drained sea of stars but sailing the planet is phenomenal. You really get to start adding your own personal canon tales of places not explored before by all but a few various playgriups over time who actually managed the trip, or the guesswork trying to be a local.

You are killing it! Can't wait for you to get a second star on the forum.
(Also, yay wordpress sites!)


I assume you are doing a ton of research and cross referencing to achieve these maps. I have a question about the Faerun map..

East of the Dire Woods is a small cluster forest that I have found described as "Eastwood" in only two places online. Once here on this forum by a 5 star user (all other results are in long threads or were referencing Clint Eastwood) and one version of a modern map on the wikia.
Have you any sources that mention the Eastwood? So many maps always draw this one spot differently, and I have a game set directly in that location. A sourcebook that mentions "eastwood" would really soothe my curiosity.

Edit: Correction. OP's map on combat.toril has it labelled eastwood as well, but draws it differently.

I believe that "Eastwood" was a placeholder whilst they were trying to come up with a better name. Really it should be an eastwards extension of the High Forest across the Delimbiyr, which is how it's treated in 3E (which shows no break between the High Forest proper and that bit of forest).

At one point it was going to be renamed Grayshadow Forest but that was never placed in a canon project, so officially it has no name, really, it's just another part of the High Forest.

And, finally, the new map of Kara-Tur, which was challenging to create.

Awesome stuff. So when is the detailed map of Impiltur happening?

Ha. Well, the next idea was to go into detail on areas where I couldn't fit everything on the main map, but I'm not sure if the world is really crying out for yet another map of Cormyr or the Dales. Places like Impiltur, Thesk, Rashemen, Chondath could be good ideas.

Amazing work! Are these maps you still add locations to?

Not at the moment, as they can't really handle many more locations being added to. The next stage would be "blown up" areas of the maps where the scale didn't allow for more details to be featured.
