The PDF containing part of the Forgotten Realms poster map is a photograph of a wrinkled map pulled from a printed issue of the magazine.



I wonder, does the PDF of this come with a digital copy of the map? Because I think I might know a place in my area where I could print it out in suitable size, if the PDF came with an image of the map in good size and quality.

So, does it come with a large image of the map section?

The same question also applies to issue #287, by the way.

I do believe the pdfs with map inserts are included as well. Generally the issue is complete unless stated (like the Phil & Dixie stuff being omitted , etc).

Yes, the maps are included.

I have the maps, but would love a pdf version of them.

How do I know which part of the map goes with which issue?


can anyone tell me if this issue contains info on Death Knights?
Thank you

The top left corner is in issue 287, the top right is in issue 288, the bottom left is in issue 289, and the bottom right is in issue 290.

So it looks like this:

----------------
|.287.|.288.|
-------+-------
|.289.|.290.|
----------------

I hope that helps. :)


A few quick questions:
1.) Is it the entire continent?
2.) How much detail does the map have? More or less than the full sized map released with the 3rd edition campaign book?
3.) Do the pdf files have any sort of zoom funtion for more detail for more local settings?

I doubt the latter, but here's hoping.

1) Yes

2) Don't have the book on me but I remember it being the exact same map, just (a lot) bigger.
3) Don't know, I have the paper version, sorry.

Does anyone know whether the "It’s not a flaw; it’s a character trait!" article by Robin D. Laws actually details some Traits and Flaws per Unearthed Arcana, or is it just a general article about characterisation?

Nothing to do with actual traits - it's an article about roleplaying certain combinations of ability scores, such as high Str/low Dex.
