More Map of Maure

Okay it's not a new map, but recently I was impressed by a simple regional map in my all-time favorite module WG5: Mordenkainen's Fantastic Adventure. What makes this map elegant is how it's a close-up of one 30 mile wide hex on the Darlene map. This type of map brings to mind old sand box campaigns like Keep on the Borderlands where there was plenty to do within a small area. Off the top of my head I can recall one other map like this in the Temple of Elemental Evil series, but in general this one scores high for color and design, incorporating various terrains of the area and adding a few new ones like an old rutted road overgrown by a wide region brambles or nearby fens. Like I said it's nothing new, but what with all the continental maps being worked on these days, I hope this inspires a few industrious DMs to generate their own localized hex maps. There's plenty to choose from!

I wish about 90% of that Darlene Map was given a 'close up' like that!

There are so many areas that could be given this treatment. If I had the skills (and the software), I'd love to do a few of them myself.

Good post!

I like it and I'm working on my take on local area Greyhawk maps. Look out for them next year.
