I really want to find a nice, high-quality map of Faerun for D&D. I've found plenty of copies, snips and scaled-down versions but they're all horribly blurry up close and make reading any of the names an entertaining but useless guessing game.

My question is whether a high-quality, full-size map is available for download or purchase online somewhere (buying a physical copy is an unideal but legitimate option), but I think that counts as a shopping question, right?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @HeyICanChan mmm, yeah the result for that question was actually too broad - I specifically want Faerun with major cities/towns/landmarks labeled. But I suppose if that one got closed mine would be too? \$\endgroup\$ – Alex Jan 30 '18 at 16:47

    \$\begingroup\$ Yep, it probably would. (I only remembered that other question because I wanted to see that map, too. Not that I have any leads—I was just curious.) \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan Jan 30 '18 at 17:03

It's a shopping question

Such a question would likely be closed as an inexact duplicate of this question. While the new question would have slightly different guidelines and requirements, those who respond can't currently and legally produce (or reproduce) what the question asks for, but only explain where what's asked for can be acquired. This makes such questions out of scope for the site.

I suggest asking for information in chat or on a forum where discussions can be held instead.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Entertaining the concept for a moment that a shopping question would be on topic (it isn't), we could show them a scaled-down illegible version of the map as a preview of what they'd get for purchasing something, much like Wikipedia hosts low-res imagery under fair use -- but we could never just give them a high-resolution version without it being effectively a request to assist in piracy, which we'd be obliged to not be party to, unless that high-resolution version was already free & something we could redistribute. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Jan 30 '18 at 17:17

    \$\begingroup\$ @doppelgreener Yeah, sure. (The essential problem is that, fundamentally, I don't think this is actually a question but a request: Provide me a map to Toril using these specifications is what the site really, really wants to do with such semiquestions… and it just can't. The only way I could imagine a question similar to this being on topic would be along the lines of Is this specific map of Toril accurate? then an expert could evaluate that map and, during that evaluation, for comparison perhaps provide links to maps that are more or less accurate.) \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan Jan 30 '18 at 17:27
