This digital download bundle includes 44 maps for use with the King Arthur Pendragon roleplaying game. It includes all of the maps by designer Malcolm Wolter from the Book of the Estate, the Book of the Warlord, and the Book of Uther. The maps are presented in the original black and white format, but in high-resolution (as much as 2,000 pixels wide) suitable for printing or for use with virtual tabletops.

The maps span the Early Phase of The Great Pendragon Campaign, and cover a diverse range of subjects, including: 

  • A comprehensive list of castle sites for the Uther, Anarchy and Boy King periods
  • Several authentic motte-and-bailey castle plans
  • Political and ecclesiastical power-bases in the Kingdom of Logres
  • Player-knight estates and castles
  • Greg Staffor’s updated vision of County Salisbury
  • The Supreme Collegium of Britain
  • The sites of British abbeys and Roman churches
  • A plan for a typical abbey of this era
  • A complete list of Market towns
  • Natural resources
  • Royal forests and hunting lodges

All this and more on awaits you in our first-ever Map Folio!

Sorry, not sure what the glitch is there. I will ask the good DriveThru folks to have a look.

The preview doesn't seem to match the description of the preview. The description says that the preview includes Designer's Notes and five maps. I can only see one (very small) map plus a legend and a list of maps. No Designer's Notes.

Um, "Count of Salisbury"??? when did we have counts? Earls yes, Counts are a french abomination (ok, slight prejudice). Sorry, but that alone makes me suspect your historical accuracy.

Thanks, Ian. KING ARTHUR PENDRAGON is not intended to be historically accurate in every detail. The Kingdom of Logres is not historical England (although the geography is certainly informed by it), so the titles of the nobility are not bound to that historical setting either. I'm sure Greg Stafford could go into a lot more detail of why he switched to "count" in recent years (he used to use "earl", in fact) but that's beyond the scope of this reply. Suffice it to say, it is his wish to use "count" — not because of an ignorance of history, but because of a deliberate design choice. Believe me, as someone who's studied Arthuriana and medieval history for over 50 years, Greg has forgotten more about English history than you or I will ever know.

Pendragon is deliberately anachronistic. Using the term "Earl" feels even more jarringly wrong, since it's a relic of anglosaxon times and Pendragon is set at a time when angles and saxons have only just started invading!

The origin of the "Count" word is not French but from Latin "Comes" which was a military title in late Roman/early Byzantine armies/adimistration.
Other languages (e g. the Italian "Conte") have similar latin-derived title.
"Earl" is more Germanic and derived from Saxon (do you notice for example the similarity with Norse "Jarl"?).

Seems too expensive for what is mostly from the Book of the Estate, the Book of the Warlord, and the Book of Uther. If it covered all time periods or was less expensive, I'd be more interested. And if previous products have what are now outdated maps, will they be updated so that those of us who have already purchased those products will get the newer maps?

The previously published maps have not been outdated as there are no changes per se. They are offered here in high-resolution. I understand it's not a product for everyone, but 100's of hours were put into creating these maps.

To expand a bit on Stewart's reply, these maps are primarily intended for gamemasters who would like higher-res maps for use with virtual tabletops, play by post, or for easily making mods for their own private use. It works out to about 56¢ per map — a great value, when one considers the convenience and portability. But indeed, they're not for everyone. Perhaps some folks didn't buy the some or all of the books that the maps were originally featured in, but would like to have the maps. Some may want them for use in Roll20 or Battlegrounds. Those who truly value them will pay what we regard as a fair price for the effort that went into them. Those who don't, won't — or may simply choose to wait for a sale, or a bundle deal. But sales have been brisk so far — exceeding our expectations! Thanks to all who have purchased. It helps us continue to bring you cool KING ARTHUR PENDRAGON products!

I second Michael. I am interested in the maps, but USD 24.99 is steep (at least for a Brazilian), so I would like to have a glimpse of them before buying.

Can we see a few previews (at lower resolution) of the maps?
Customer avatar

Good point, friends. We will work to get something posted ASAP. In the meantime, if you own the three books mentioned you already have previews. These are the maps from those publications, presented as high-res jpgs.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
