Thieves or pirates always give you a good reason to begin an adventure. They can steal things that you have to get back, you could have to escape from them, they can pitch camp in a spot the adventurers have to sneak through, or if the members of your team are a bit more mercenary, the goal would more likely be to steal as much treasure as possible. Sometimes, imprisoned NPC’s can be found in the caves, so if a character is killed, the party could accept new members into the group.
The isometric views can be used as visual aids for your players. When characters arrive in an area you can show the isometric picture to your players, do that they can see more details about the battlemap around them.
“We decided to make camp under a cliff to stay out of the rain. Our leader says there’s an entrance around here somewhere that heads into the ruins of a forgotten city. Dwarven ale and tall tales were traded around the campfire until everyone, unfortunately, drifted off to sleep. Little did we know that only three of us would still be alive by the time the sun rose again…”

Cojonuda, yes you could, but you don't need to. They've already taken care of it.
In the download file, you get a pdf file with isometric views to clarify things, along with an overhead view (40" x 40") that is broken into 20 printable pages that can be assembled like a puzzle.
In addition, there are 2 more files, "Poster Sized Pictures" and "For Online Players" that have the entire file as one large jpg image, set up for doing just what you want to do: print it as one large file. The main difference between the two is that the For Online Players file is more ink intensive, with black between the wall segments. I prefer this one to the Poster Sized Pictures map, that uses white between the walls.
I'm looking at the file now, and despite your fears about the resolution, it looks clear at normal sizes. When you turn the 1" grid on and zoom to 1" = 1", it's clear. I have just spent the last few minutes playing around with the display and I've only noticed pizzelation occuring when I have 2 squares completely filling my screen, and I'm using a widescreen HDTV.
If you have any questions about any of the Lord Zsezse Works products, I'm always willing to answer. I'm proofreading and editing their products and I always have access to their stuff. And if I can't give you an answer right away, I'll get ahold of Antal and Zoltan and get an answer from them.
