    Official Map of Dyvers

    I believe I have seen a map of Dyvers in an edition of the Dungeon Magazine. Probably sometime in the 2000s (aughts).

    Can anyone help me by telling me what edition of Dungeon that was in? Would most appreciate it. Thanks.

    May Have Mistaken for Map of Hardby

    I may have solved my own mystery. There's a map of Hardby in Dungeon #109.

    If I'm completely confused it returns me to a 180 if anyone does know of a Dungeon map of Dyvers that would be great and if you could give me an issue number please, thanks much. But this may have been a brain fart.

    Edit*
    Was thinking you may not have been referencing just the City of Dyvers.... since there is also the land of as well

    Slavers has a low-detail map of the city on page 9, along with some key locations.

    The map cited by the Wiki link, and by DLG, is from Slavers as noted by Tarelton.

    There's this highly detailed pdf map that seems to conform to the map from Slavers. Not sure what the source is, but judging from the name it's LG related, maybe the official triad map. http://web.archive.org/web/20030521122600/http://dyvers.living-greyhawk.com/Graphics/dyverswithgrid.pdf

    Great Map Smillan..... was thinking of updating it to a series of Table top maps. Any idea what scale it was set in? seems (solely based on a guess looking at the relative building sizes) that each grid square is approximately 100'x100'. Does that seem reasonable? I realize that this would make Dyvers fairly large, but as I recall it was comparable to Greyhawk City and the population was 40kish
    I like that the streets and the approximate locations of various churches are also on the map too.... great bones to build from....

    Thoughts?

    I think there are also Dyvers Triad (?) maps that break that main city map up into sections, and the map sections are enlarged to show street/business names and locations. They are still simple maps though- nothing fancy, but serviceable.

    I might go with 200 x 200 squares. That looks to match the scale of the Slavers map better.

    Simple is fine.. and better infact.... utilizing the bones not the visuals... Since Dyvers is the "old Chendl" I invision following a similar design to Anachronistes Press in their interpretation of the New Chendl... ..

    http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/142347/Chernel--Map

    So any details any have would be helpful.......

    @ Smillan.... WOW 200x200... so overall city proper somewhere around 6200ft x 4200ft .......hummm on one hand seems sizable, but after looking at other maps seems a good fit... especially since Dyvers was the original capital of Furyondy until the construction and migration to Chendl.

    With Chendl being a "planned city" of sorts (similar to Washington DC), its more standardized and spread out feel seems to also be good fit to the rough draft grown in place feel of your Dyvers map.

    As a sanity check I also looked at these.....

    Anachronistes Press'es "Chendl"=12500ftx13500ft
    TheMarklands- Chendl p25= 3806ft x 3500ft (which seems small compared to other city footprints for a capital, not sure they didn't check the scale when reducing it to fit an 8 1/2 x11 booklet)
