    I have used information from several sources to devise a map of Verbobonc. Please click below to view the map:

    Map of Verbobonc

    It is meant to be used in concordance with another file, the Verbobonc City PDF, which I did not create, but drew from for location information. Our campaign is set in this area of the Flanaess, and hopefully this will help some of you as well."

    marilor, where can we find a copy of the Verbobonc City PDF which you mentioned in your blurb?

    Sorry about the broken link. I'm glad you're happy with the map. I'll fix the link tonight when I get home, and also add a link to the Verbobonc PDF.

    Oops, meant to say - the map looks good. This is a very timely resource for me, since my players are just starting RttToEE, and so will probably be heading to Verbobonc at some stage.

    BTW, is there any way to edit these comments once we have posted them?

    Yeah, this is a great map. I love maps! I am guessing, but I imagine he used Banesfinger's work, which is available (the following file may take a while to load, it is big) HERE [schamle.com].

    Banesfinger's map is HERE [schamle.com].

    I hope this helps.

    This Verbobonc Map should work now. I tested it a few times and it loaded for me on two different computers. Please give it another try.

    Initially, I let the author's server retain the loadable image. But, I have since moved it to GHO, where is shall be safe from being broken - I hope. Sorry about delays or inconvenience, all.

    Hi, Shamus.

    The Verbobonc map will open in its own, new window. Perhaps allowing pop ups will get it opened on your computer.

    It has worked for me from work and home on different computers. So, I think the link is in good order.

    Send me an e-mail or private message if is still does not work.

    The map is awsome. We play in this part of Flanaess (my character is the wife of Jaroo Ashstaff, the druid in Hommlet, so don't forget to visit them if you are around those places; btw. her name is Anvalian Ashstaff) and it's really nice to have this one at hand. Thanks.

    A very pretty map indeed.

    My only personal qibble is that I always saw the Velverdyva being wider at that point - more like the Rhine or the Danube than something you'd feasibly stick a short bridge over.

    But it's a very minor point. The map itself is a work of art! Well done!

    This is my only question, too. I was actually going to start a thread about this very issue in The Reader's Forum. I imagined the Velverdyva River, this close to the Nyr Dyv, being at least a thousand feet wide as is flows through Verbobonc, perhaps double that. It is "navigable" to High Folk.

    But, that does not take away from this great map. I love it!

    Good call, Fairylover. I wanted to suggest a mile wide, but did not want to get too carried away. But, I can totally see the river approaching that width as it hits Verbobonc. 

    I am suspecting that there are no bridges spanning several thousand feet in the Flanaess, are there? If we're talking about this navigable river being this wide, Verbobonc does not enjoy bridges, does it? Maybe ferries are more appropriate.

    Fellers,


    There is a village (name escapes me) on the Furyondy side of the river, whose existance IMO is mainly a result of the ferrrying of people and goods to and from Verbobonc-town.  There have been several incarnations in the Canon of Verbobonc that involve a bridge, but IMO the Velverdyva is much too wide at this point to be bridged. 

    My vision of Verbobonc town (CY 570) is a walled town (with lots of space inside the walls for a bit of farming and grazing) at the base of a large rock outcropping (this outcropping rises about 500ft above the river, it is the terminal end of a ridge associated with the nearby Kron Hills) atop which sits the Citidel Greyfist. A tributary of the Velverdyva (IMC Nigb's Run) enters the river at the base of the outcropping providing a good "harbor" on the river for ships and barges to.  (The town sits in-between the outcropping and the tributary--hope this makes sense...) The gnomes of the town live mostly at the base of the outcroppping in their "rents" (I think they are called).  The remnant elvish structures (as noted in the LGG, I think) are found farther south where the wall meets the outcropping, where the slope of the outcropping is still wooded.  The humans live in the town proper near the mouth of Nigb's Run. Greyfist sits atop the ruins of an older elfish fort, but the current structure is pure Aerdy, like what you find in Dyvers.

    IMC The Viscounty extracts "toll/fee" from all those (i.e., most) using Verbobonc as a port of call.  This is a major source of income for the Viscount. I would suppose the Lord of the town in Furyondy would do the same.


    Kind of went on--sorry!

    Of course when you are talking about fantasy what can realistically be bridged and what is actually bridged could be two different stories.

    Perhaps one of the great archclerics of old decided to do something about bridging the river.

    It could make for a very cool "Wonder of Greyhawk" type of structure.

    Hi there. Here's the new link, sorry about the delay. There's also a link to the Verbobonc City PDF. It's not mine, but it's a great resource.

    It's a great map -- even more useful in the smaller size now provided. It's a shame the map has taken some roasting on dragonfoot.

    I'm wondering -- how difficult would it be to flip the map so that most of the city is on the south side of the river, instead of the north side?  I can't see any problem with that, but maybe I'm missing something obvious...
