Map of Arkham

Post by SamS » Wed Nov 27, 2013 8:26 pm

I know there are some great maps of Arkham out there, but has anyone seen a large scale map of Arkham?
Like one the size of a regular fold up road map or poster board size.

The biggest one I've seen is the quarter-fold map they included with the H.P. Lovecraft's Arkham book.

Haven't seen the map in the Arkham book but I'd imagine that if the pdf map is clean enough of a graphics image that you could enlarge it to fit on 4 pieces of paper, print them out & then tape the edges together (or tape the blank pages together & draw the map yourself). The problem with the publishers making a map of this size is the cost with the size being an odd size compared to the book & the special paper used. Even the Cthulhu by Gaslight book that did this with the London fold out map only did the map slightly bigger than the book so anyone wanting this size of a map (which would be a fun prop) is most likely going to have to make it themselves.

Just thought of another option which is to get a small roll of butcher paper which should get it to a larger size but without a printer capable of printing on this (which would be a costly thing) still would have to make it yourself.

What era do you need?

I've just finished an A2 sized 1775 / 1750 plan of Arkham for the upcoming Colonial Lovecraft Country supplement, and am working on an A1 map of Kingsport for 1750 as well as other towns and cities in Massachusetts.

If you're after classic era (20s / 30s) then the Chaosium map that came with Arkham Unvielled is a good start though it's only slightly larger than A3... Maybe photocopy / scan and enlarge it?
