The Greyhawk Adventurer’s Atlas

Introduction and Part 1 - The Baklunish West

This is first installment of a 13-part series of annotated maps of the Flanaess in pdf format. Its primary goal is to allow DM’s to create campaigns for their players. For those interested in Greyhawk lore, the atlas may also be useful as a reference for adventure creation, fiction writing or general geographic information.

Parts 1 through 12 are maps focused on plotting adventure locations from three editions, 1st through 3rd, with both canon and fan adventure sources included. Part 13 is a series of three appendices listing the adventures by party level, adventures by geographic location and finally an exhaustive list of online sources for numerous fan works, with research tips and suggestions for those interested. The installments are being released separate so that they can be downloaded as needed to aid DM’s in plotting a campaign. Alternatively, all 13 parts can be collected up to form one entire volume, if desired.

Each atlas installment covers a different set of countries and/or regions of the Flanaess, loosely grouped by geography. In this installment, the introduction covers the reasons for creating the work, the sources used and that atlas’ entry codes and format in detail. Part 1 details the majority of the known lands of the Baklunish West, including Ekbir, Tusmit, Ket, Zeif, Ull, the Arir Erg and the Dry Steppes.

The link seems to be broken. It takes me to a module called "Lost Treasures".

Hey folks, if you find inaccuracies or downright goof-ups in the text or maps, I want to know. This project is really huge, so I expect there to be corrections needed - the more brains in on this, the better.

One possibility is that you could post them here, so I can fix 'em up. Another idea: I could start a thread in the projects forum area for this as well - let me know which you'd prefer so I can start collecting corrections. The only caveat is that I'd like to get all 12 parts online before swamping Mortellan with any updates.

Looks good!  I need to round up a 3 ring binder and some tabs to hold the whole thing!

One question....  will there be a large type edition for us old timers?

I understand your concern - at 45, I'm heading towards being an old-timer myself!

I hadn't imagined a large type edition, mainly because I didn't think this would translate well to paper. I envisioned the atlas as an electronic resource so, if the print is too small, closing the book marks section or zooming in a bit helps a lot.

The default page size used in the Acrobat layout is larger then legal paper. Also the three final maps in Part 12 are just way to big to fit on anything other then two full-sized sheets of movie-poster sized paper, side by side. (I have the player map at home printed out and laminated for game use - it fills about half of one of my living room walls. :) )

Oh, did a great job. I honestly had no idea it would be so detailed. A detailed examination of each region, one particular location, but also a description. Certainly it is a good material to form an .. here a lot of room for imagination and fantasy. Great work. The atlas - it's really a pleasant discovery.
