Just for the record: its 1 inch longer than the map in the original (3.5) campaign guide, but otherwise similar in size. (Got my new campaign guide today)
The colour contrast has been improved, and the wording is a lot bigger and clearer. The borders are also clearer. (One early PC was from Ostenso, in Andoran... in the campaign I was playing in)
It's certainly a better map, but if you have the original map, I am not convinced its worth the extra money to buy it seperatly.
If you want a nice big map, and don't want the campaign guide, or the even bigger map, its a good product.
So much for "The Fabled City of Xin-Shalast"
I'm really dumbfounded by the decision to print the location of Xin-Shalast on all of these maps. It's such a spoiler.
My party is in the process of searching for Xin-Shalast in the last of the ROTRL series. Having it printed on the map kills some of the suspense.
I've asked my players not to look but that's kinda silly.
So much for there being any suspense to that module. Or the Lost Cities supplement for that matter. Not very lost any more.

I have a question regarding this map and other similar ones done by Paizo. Are these originally hand drawn, or is a mapmaking program used? My reason for asking is because I myself am working on Pathfinder setting that plan to publish and, though I try, my mapmaking artistry is not to my level of acceptance and makers like Campaign Cartographer, while really nice, just don't seem to capture what i want either. The Golrarian maps and style is really close and I need to know if I'm either missing the right programs or the right artists.
