City of Greyhawk Maps

Here, presented for the first time, are my own hand-drawn maps for the Free City of Greyhawk, done many years ago and finally scanned in. Apologies for the poor quality on some of the edges; I had originally connected the four sheets with masking tape, and over the years it has ossified and shows through. The letter-number keys in some of the city blocks key to the City of Greyhawk boxed set. Not all of the locations in the boxed set are to be found on my maps, but many of them are. Bear in mind that on my original a half inch equals a thousand feet. The irregular shapes that make up my own City are not individual buildings (in most cases) but rather city blocks, and it can be assumed that small alleyways penetrate most of them. The maps here are based on the sketch map found in City of Hawks by Gary Gygax (New Inifinities, 1987), but obviously with a great deal more detail (these maps are copyright (c) 2008 all rights reserved).

Cool - I had the later boxed set, the one that came with a sewer map as well. Man I loved to just sit around planning sewer-heists that we never played in-game...

I would love to do a whole sewer map that plugs into my city map. Some day...

Awesome! A lot of memories are kindled by these maps. Thanks for posting.

I love stuff like this even though I haven't played AD&D for 15 years.

Epic maps, my friend. I love the personalized approach to mapping the city. You really made it your own.

Hey, thanks for the inspiration and uploading your map online!

A friend of mine saw your map online and decided to use it in our game. When I saw it printed out I decided to take it into Illustrator and update it for our home game. If you'd like the pdf I made, let me know and I'll be happy to shoot you a link!

Again, thanks for the map!

Here's a jpg version of the map in Illustrator.

Hi! The maps appear to be gone....

Please look off to the right in the "Free Downloads" section.

Hey mate,

Thanks for your response. I did note the map in the sidebar, but your links above remain broken.

Are the quarter maps in the same scale as the whole map?

Joseph Bloch said...

I don't normally go through and fix broken links from five years ago. :-)

Yes, same scale; someone was kind enough to take my maps and combine them, and someone else then went through and colorized them.

Gotcha. Plus, I find now that you also posted quarter versions here:
