**( )( )( )

I was very excited for this product, but should have read the reviews. The four posters do not line up. No matter how I tried to get them "close enough" it looked obviously offset at the extremes. I praise Paizo at every opportunity I have, but a lack of quality control has rendered this product a huge disappointment.


Beautiful and so useful.

*****

I have no space at home to put this on a wall where it belongs, but I have brought it along time after time when I'm GMing and it really clarifies locations for most of the players. I feel it is important to have a frame of reference like this available, especially since a good half of the players don't have any idea where they are when you just give them a name and a country. Depth of the gaming experience matters.


Awesome cartography, mind the creases

****( )

Okay, the map itself is awesome. I was expecting it to be big, but you can't get a sense of the scale of it until it is tacked up on your wall. I tried taking a photo of it to email to my friends, but a photo cannot capture the scale.
The colours are great and the level of detail is amazing. Looking at it, it's hard to believe that the Inner Sea Region is an imaginary place.
The one flaw, and the reason I've given it four starts instead of five, is the fact that it is packaged folded, not rolled. The product consists of four tiled poster maps, each of which is folded into eight segments. The folds mean that it does't tac onto the wall quite flat. Previous reviews have commented that the joins on the maps don't quite match. This isn't true - joins do match. The problem is that because the maps are folded, the edges don't always match up where you'd expect them to. Getting the four maps to fit together requires some effort to stretch them out first and then fit them together.
All in all a great product. I don't regret my purchase at all - the map is basically what I expected. If it had been package in a tube instead of a folio, though, it would have captured five stars from me.


Hoping for more...

**( )( )( )

FYI - this is the SAME map included with the Inner Sea World Guide with 2 small differences...

1 - Higher resolution

2 - Additional landmark labels

Worth another $14 on top of the Inner Sea World Guide? I think not...


little disapointed

***( )( )

I can some what blame my self for not fully reading what this product was before I purchased it. It is basically a huge map cut up into 4 pieces. It is exactly what the product description says it is.

that said, what is the use of this? it is way to big to be of any practical use. I thought about framing it, but as others have said, the seems do not line up correctly.

I was thinking this would include different smaller maps of the inner sea.Those would of been more useful. I really have no use for this map at all, way to big. The first time I opened the folio is probably going to be the last time.

If I had read the product description more carefully I would never have bought, but even still for what it is it is pretty useless.

I like the part about module locations. I think that's a fun addition.

+1, given the size of this map set the module locations should be so detailed moving a group of PCs around the world should much more fun(less work for us Too busy DMs).


So how large is 32 panels?

44"x72" would be my guess, assuming four 2x4 maps of 8.5" x 11" panels.

One panel = 1 page. So... very big.


Is that one piece of paper, or will it come piecemeal?

Another great product... I'm going to be so poor by the end of the year!

I still have room on my office wall for more art or posters. This works. :D

This just might be the first map folio I get.

Yep. As a huge fan of maps, but not at all a fan of previous map folios, I have to say this one sounds damn cool and I am looking forward to it.

It'll be on 4 poster maps. Those who remember the map of the World of Greyhawk we put into Dungeon #117–#120 or thereabouts will know what we're aiming at... although on heavier paper stock.

Having helped put the Greyhawk map together... I'm actually a bit terrified of this one...


Is the cartography new in this one?

Are we going to see corrections like the latitude of the Crown of the World — or maybe some edge-of-the-map hints at something like vagrant-poet's incredible extrapolations? (just a little inset of the map's place in the global map would be nerdgasmic)

Navigation lines? How are the 4 poster maps oriented? Will the assembled map be portrait format still? If so, can you plan ahead to have it line up with whatever eastern map is eventually released so we can can have a megamap for our mancaves?

I'm a bit of a cartographile and the map folios finally appear to be coming into their own. Really, really excited for this one.

The cartography more or less HAS to be new. We want to put more tags on, but more to the point we want to put new terrain features and islands and stuff in as well. And I'd also like to remove the band of white across the top of the map, and reduce the size of Droskar's Crag down to normal.

The assembled map will still be in portrait format.

As for the map of the entire world... this map will NOT be in this product. That might be a good project for another day. That said... the new revised hardcover campaign setting will indeed have a map of Golarion, including all of its continents. It'll only be a half-page in size, but it'll do the job for now!

Excellent well! The map to beat, in my humble opinion, is that original MERP map folio from way back. Assembly was a total nightmare, but the cartography was insanely beautiful and inspired if not accurate.

Oh wow! That made me want to buy it more than anything else!!!! Or as much as... Oh god! Roll on September!!!

*drools* (but definately not on the map)


*drools too but has a towel*


So, will this be in PDF format as well? Single page and Multiple page formats? With the floating text so that if we snag the picture it doesn't have the labels on it?

Please? : )


This is going to be great! I agree that the AP sites are a nice addition.

I'm trying to visualize how big this is going to be. Is it really going to be the size of 16 covers put together?

I don't know, I love having a reference map of adventures sites, like the one that appeared in the existing Campaign Setting, but I don't know that I would want to see them on a giant map like this. I'd want to be able to show it to my players without the spoilers. I hope it will at least be all locations shown in the sense of marking the location by name instead of by number. In other words...

Spoiler:
they would mark "Xin-Shalast", not "PF12"
etc.

Looking forward to this!


Please, please, please do NOT put on numbers/locations for advnture path locations or pathfinder modules... nothing breaks the 'real' feel of a map like doing that, plus it's too much info for players... Goodman ruined the Aereth maps by doing this... and also, this dates the map, as later adventures/module locations are obviously not detailed... so in other words......... what Davelozzi said...

Paizo Employee Creative Director

Folks who remember the giant Greyhawk map we did in Dungeon several years ago will know the type of map that we're aiming to do do with this. It most assuredly won't have module numbers or PF volumes on it. "Xin-Shalast" will be labeled as "Xin-Shalast."

I'll likely end up buying two. One to hang on the ugly blue wall in the spare bedroom and one for my shelves.

Maybe 3, one for the ugly blue room, one for the Hermit-cave(tm) and one for my shelves.

+ 1 to that. I am guessing three copies for myself. One for my wall, one for me, and one for the player(s).

No kidding.. staring at my framed Campaign setting one and trying to imagine it four times bigger (2x2)... wow. I can't figure out if I'm glad it's broken into four or not. I know I'd tear it, were it a single sheet.

OMG! This I cannot wait for!

Need to buy at least 2. Maybe 3. (Donate one to the FLGS...)

NO NO NO!
HOW are you going to make me wait till November for a preorder. The book "preoder" starts or comes out, whichever, in September. How dare you make me wait 2 WHOLE months for a large super map.
It's like waiting in line for the DMV. I'm an addict, feed me know.
*pouts in corner*

Rant aside, this is the map I have been longing for. I'm really excited for hanukkah and xmas this year!

Will this be available in a GM's version (all the info), and players' version (well-known landmarks, but without any scenario spoilers)?

I can understand not wanting to make two printing runs, but at least if there's a PDF, we can do this ourselves.

In the event there is a PDF, please could the text be split into at least two layers; one of commonly-known information, and the other of scenario-specific locations?
That way, a GM can extract the area he wants, and edit away one or more of the text layers, leaving the PCs' intended destination in full view, while removing all trace that The Underground Temple of Horrendous Doom lies directly in their path.

[EDIT: Vic's earlier reply fills me with some confidence. However, I'd still suggest that there be at least two different text layers, if possible.]

I would like to PDF to come in one page that can be taken to a print shop and printed as one map. I have a 3x4 foot map on my office wall of the current Campaign Setting PDF and I would love to be able to do that again with the new one.

Thanks...


I can't believe I just now saw this.

Grand Lodge

Gotta get this one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


O,o?

Sweeet... Soo looking forward to this. Will probably need 2 (I think).

I'm going to need two. One for my collection. The other will be for me having put on a board, coated, and hung in my game room.

I'm only going to get one, which will likely stay folded and unassembled somewhere. Maybe tucked into one of my hardcovers.

Unless I can think of a good way to convince my wife that this is the newest fashion in wall-paper. Maybe I can trick her in thinking it is the newest French, toile style. Then I may need several maps!

Will these come in any varying color schemes?


Is this going to be available separately as a PDF? Are subscription people going to get a PDF on this? I can see a lot of uses for the PDF.
