Middle Earth Hex Map?

Post by Havard » Mon Oct 26, 2015 2:25 pm

Anyone made one? I'd love to see something like a 24mphex type map and compare to my Mystara maps for distances etc.

The One Ring has a 10 mile per hex map, focused on the areas involved in The Hobbit. I don't know of any freely available online, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

The old SPI War of the Ring game has a great hex map (not quite at the granularity you want, though, I don’t think).

Here's something quick that I pulled together with an image taken from the internet fed into CC3 and given a 24 mile hex overlay.

The maps in TOR are not that different -- these are utilitarian maps for computing travel times, rather than "full" hex-maps in the Mystara style.

The Middle Earth play-by-mail wargame has a Hex map covering most of the LotR map (so not Beleriand or parts further Nother, South or East.
The base map omits cities (as in theory you don't know where the other players have put theirs despite the starting points being fixed in the original game).

I should have my copy somewhere if you are interested, but I did a quick web search and found http://www.middleearthgames.com/materials.html#general. The maps don't appear to be scans of the original, but rather basic compilations with settlements.
If you look around you might find a decent copy of the original.

I'd like to see that, if/when you make it. :)

Just the maps are now available in a print folder called Journeys and Maps, BTW (including areas that weren't covered in the core book like Gondor and Arnor). Great gaming resource even if you don't use the system.
