    Maps of Rhizia: Home of the Suelii (Part 1: The West)
    Posted on Wed, March 05, 2003 by Legate
    eanondson writes "These are my maps of the Thillonrian Peninsula, presented in two parts. They are done in the same style as my Shield Lands/Bandit Kingdoms regional map, but the preponderance of mountains made these maps quite a bit more time consuming. I present the first half here, the western lands of Rhizia! Enjoy!

    Note: I've further refined a "look" for the topography of underwater, which I am quite pleased with.

    The sparsity of canon material about this region made research a bit of a problem. Despite the lack of towns and sites on the maps, there are dozens of settlements, I only marked the ones which have ever been named and even generally located. Feel free to imagine dozens and dozens of villages scattered about the coasts and fjords.

    Of note, the "gap" in the center of the Griff Mountains can very well be imagined to be the plateau where the oft mentioned "Tostenhca" or "Skrellingshald" could be found... Who knows...

    Lastly, the two maps were done so that someone could print off both and then piece them together to make one larger map. But there is slight overlap between the two maps as a convenience to aid piecing the two together. To be honest, I had to do this entire region as multiple smaller maps because it's so much larger. Part one, just includes the Western Half. So fair warning, together, the map files are even larger in size than my Shield Lands/Bandit Kingdoms map. So, enjoy!

    Here's a preview:

    A complete collection of the files that constitute the map can be downloaded here in a zip file: Rhizia West Map

    The zip file contains two larger versions of this same map. One is paper-sized, the other poster-sized. Fair warning: THESE ARE LARGE FILES!

    Very nice work Eric! I'll be curious to test out the plotter printing at work :D

    Allan.

    I would also like to add my praise for these great maps you've done. Additionally, I was wondering if anyone knows how one would go about printing such large maps on heavy stock paper (like the old fold-out GH maps). Does Kinkos offer a service like that? Would I have to go to a print shop? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Again, great work on the maps! Can't wait to see if your efforts migrate toward Nyrond (or even beyond the known Flanaess)!

    I agree, your maps are beautiful (and an excellent resource for DMs who need inspiration when it comes to describing the topography of an unfamiliar area of Greyhawk)! Please keep them coming!

    One suggestion, though. In future, could you please provide two separate links (and two separate zip files) for the page-sized version and the poster-sized version? That would significantly reduce the download time for people like me who want a closer look at your maps, but who don't need a poster-sized version.

    Thanks again for all your wonderful work!

    I know this is 7 years later, but the link to the file isn't working.  Does anyone have this map, or can the file be re-established?  Thanks!
