Does someone have a world map with the Parchlands?

Hello everyone, does anyone have a map I can use for my players that shows the Parchlands.

"The Parchlands is an exceptionally dry desert located in Casmaron, south of the Whistling Plains. Several groups of nomads skirt its perimeter but avoid the interior, due to powerful taboos and fear of the resident territorial girtablilus and ash giants. The only settlement within the Parchlands is accursed and abandoned Neruzavin, originally built by the flying polyps, located approximately 230 miles from its northwestern corner."

But I need some kind of reference from where Qadira is located.

Maps of Casmaron are scarce. Would it work to move the action to another desert?

You could also pick a random RPG desert map. Since there is (appearantly) no official material, nothing contradicts your take.

Finally, you can paint something on your own. Tools like Wonderdraft vastly simplify the creation of RPG maps.

What I'm looking for is an actual Paizo World map that just has the region labeled. I see the ones already posted in a search but I want something I can copy and paste into my online game.

I simply can't find the actual location of where the Parchlands is located on a World Map.


using the information I posted on PathfinderWiki you can estimate where it is on the map. Use the description of the Whistling Plains and "the city is in SW Casmaron" use the zoom function on the map. There is also a small lake with an island S of the sea (zoom). Due west of that lake feature are mountains AND the city is adjacent to those (by the artwork). That area is about 3500km SW of Kelesh.
Hint from AP113 pg6: traveling from the NW edge of the Parchlands to Neruzavin is about 230m(370km). That would put it in the first little notch in the mountain range SW of Kelesh southern borders. Personally that seems a bit too close for the epic danger that lies there... I'd put it another 400km SW in the NW notch between the two fingers of the mountain ranges. That's very hard to get to and far more isolated.

As it is a Work of Art they don't tend to be mapped or specific, just descriptive with general locations until a book with budget and such to print a map comes along. It is a product.

Review J Jacobs Distant Shores resource and J Compton What Grows Within resource. If you can't find it there then try their ask me anything thread.


note: my distances are just eyeballed -
Lat,Long on the map where I'd put it [16.6475206, 33.3968703] which is 3250km SW of Qaharid.

I engaged James back at the time of publication and there wasn't a published map then. I'm positive nothing has been published since. Azothath's estimations seem better than anything I can/came up with.


not to be too obvious but there is a large light yellow area on the map, presumably the dessert.

Time to copy the map area, colorize areas and add some mythical flourishes. Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator are helpful. A full repetitive global map is out there.
