Hi, I have a bunch of maps for the DL modules, I don't know which maps go with which module. Any help greatly appreciated. The names and dates of the maps are:

Map of the ice reaches and the new tarsian coast, 1985

The league of the minotaurs, 1989

Southern ergoth and the lands of the elves in exile, 1985

The kingdom of thorbardin, 1984

The lands of abanasynia, 1984

The world of krynn the continent of ansalon, 1984

Surface map of the taman busuk / dark network map, 1986

The sunken courts and the pit of istar, 1986

TSR Archive tells me that DL2 has a fold out map and that DL3 does not, but my DL3 has "The Lands of Abanasynia" and my DL2 has none.  Anybody know which is correct?

The sunken courts and the Pit of Istar - from DL12

The TSR archive is incorrect and so are the map codes.  DL3 has the Lands of Abanasynia and DL2 doesn't have a fold-out map.

The sunken courts and the pit of istar, 1986


There are some - these are from memory, mind you, so I could have made a mistake.  Make sure to check the outside edges of the maps for the piece code:  It the first 4 digits will match the module code (on the top right of the front cover).  Some DL modules didn't have a module code, but the later ones do.  (the piece code is incorrect on DL3).

I would imagine the two from 1986 are Dragons of Faith and Dragons of Triumph . . . but check the piece code.

The League of Minotaurs is one of the DLE mods . . . or from the Time of the Dragon box set based on the year of 1989 . . . again, check your piece code.

DL1 consists of a 32 page booklet and trifold cover - no fold out maps.

DL9 has a 48 page book, trifold cover and cardstock sheet of 28 counters - no fold out maps.

DL10 has a 32 page booklet. An 8 page map booklet without numbers stapled into the centre, which can sometimes be detached and absent in used modules and a trifold cover - no fold out maps.

Is TSR archive wrong about DL5 (Dragons of Mystery) as well?  They state that it includes a fold-out map.  Mine does not.  It does, however, have this cool ad inside:

DL5 does have a map - it is a small fold-out world map of Krynn.
