It's not a skill check; it's an Intelligence check. Perhaps the DC 7 is too easy (for the lowest benefit), but is a DC 23 Intelligence check (for the highest benefit) really easily attained?

Thanks for the info.! I would rather have the poster in a non-standard size than not have a poster at all. :)
I still haven't decided what to do with mine. Cut? Fold? Buy bigger frames? Jeez, I need to be more decisive.
I hadn't really looked at the overlap. I will double check this weekend (see, I still haven't framed 'em).
Well, I haven't framed them yet. I am still agonizing over whether to buy new frames (I bought 20x30 frames) or lose 1" of the map (due to cutting or folding). The larger frame size would just look silly (because I refuse to spend the money to mat poster maps), but I really don't want to mutilate my maps to fit in the almost-perfectly-sized 20x30 frames. If only that decorative border ran along the top and bottom of the posters, instead of the side. I could chop that off without a a second thought!
I'm glad you have your priorities straight--first item out, the FR map! :)
Love all the setting posters we've gotten in Paizo magazines over the last few years.
But (there's always a "but")....the size drives me nuts.
I was going to frame my GH ones for my wall, but they're 21x30. I found some frames that are 20x30. The next standard size up appears to be 24x36.
If you do any posters in the future, can you make the sections a standard poster size, so we can buy standard sized frames? I think you've mentioned that you probably won't be doing any posters in the near future, but I decided to mention it just in case. Thanks for any consideration.
As it is now, I will have a lot of wasted space in a really big frame, or I will have to trim 1" off the poster. And it's 1" off the actual map, not the decorative border on the sides. Neither option is that appealing, but both are better (financially, that is) than custom framing.
