High Rez GH Folio Oerik Map?

Postby Hunter_Maddox » Thu Jun 08, 2017 5:10 am

Does anyone have a version of the old GH Folio unlabeled Oerik map?

I've been scouring the web for a larger high rez copy of the GH Folio Map & no luck; I've been considering using the GH Folio map & just placing Blackmoor, the Duchy of Ten(h) in proper positioning; then place the other realms elsewhere. That said, I have also been looking over the Old 70s GH maps & have been planning potentially to use them as a base for a hand drawn map. Right now these are my two options I am working with in the mapping phase of my Blackmoor/Greyhawk campaign development; but I'll discuss that in another thread.

Hey there, Maddox!
A couple of questions, for you:
  • What is the "unlabeled" map? The one that I have has all the nations and whatnot labelled. Are you just referring to no additional labelling?
  • What do you consider "high-rez"? 3000 x 5000 pixels (42" x 66")? More? Less?

Also, for the forum, at large:
Would it be legally permissible to distribute a high resolution image of these maps like this? I mean, it was in a product that wasn't freely distributed, so, I don't really know if something like this has been released anywhere.

I don't have a link* right now, but I know that Anna Meyer on facebook has been working on Greyhawk maps for a few years now. They are highly detailed, and there may be pdf/jpgs of the hex map from the Folio/1983 boxed set available from associated links at that site.

(*But I can find one given time.)

Here's a couple of links to the GH Maps to which Dread Delgath is referring, above:
