The Judges Guild Wilderlands of High Fantasy vibe that the Kingmaker Map Folio is now channeling is right on target, imo.
I approve of this approach to AP Map Folios. Too often, the maps included seem to nbe maps that the owners of the module series already own. This time - the product delivers real value. I'm damned interested in this product :)
pleez pleez PLEEZ! say this comes with the adventure path subscription and will magically show up at my door.
Unfortunately, the Map Folio sets are always part of the Chronicles line, so you would need a subscription to that line to get it without buying it separately.

156 inches wide... 13 feet... time to get a bigger apartment... *faint*
I actually laid the map out on the floor of my office and then measured them with a tape measure. It is huge. And I am not sure how I am going to be able to put it all up on my wall. But I am going to try. :)

Somebody pointed out in the thread about the product that I was measuring in CENTIMETERS, not INCHES. Sigh. You would think that somebody as high ranking as CEO could do something as simple as read a tape measure. So those numbers should be in CENTIMETERS, which makes the map quite a bit smaller. Sorry for getting everybody's hopes up. Now to get myself some remedial classes to improve my ability to measure things. :)

Yes the maps have the hexes printed on them..they do not however have the adventure locations from the AP printed on them a decision I am glad Paizo went with as you can just stick the map down on the table and ask the players where they are going.
That does, however, take away the "fog of war", i.e. the party not knowing how the map looks in places they haven't explored yet.
Be aware that this product doesn't include encounter area maps. As a map folio for an adventure, I expected it to have the maps from the adventure. I bought it as a PDF so that I could use the maps provided in the books. Instead, this is just an overview map of the entire area. Granted, it's a big and beautiful (and very useful) map. But if you want a maps of the encounter areas, this isn't what you're looking for.
