You're right, of course, but I did at first glance think it might be from the "New Adventurers of F & GM" boxed set. The resemblance between Lankhmar and some versions of Greyhawk is too close to be completely coincidental...

Well, I looked again and don't see any lettering/printing/numbers/names, so maybe that wasn't the dumbest question *ever*... still,  :oops:

Thanks Mars!

It didn't feel like Lankhmar to me, but I couldn't place it.  Thought it might be Living City, but obviously not.  Glad Mars had the answer!

Ah, the sounds of a de-shrinking.

No separate map, but the cover is a three-panel affair.

A small Fall/Winter 1991 catalog and a green Customer Response card are inside.


You are a HERO!  :!:

I picked up a lot of Lankhmar modules today, and can't figure out which one came with this city poster  :?

Thanks in advance!


And a nice map it is too.
I like it.

That is a nice map.

The only Lankhmar map I recall was one that had sections of neighborhoods blanked out, so the DM could develop his own street plan.
:x  :x  :x  :x  :x  :x

Why not just send me a blank 11 x 17 sheet so I can develop all of my own street plan!  God!    :x   Of all the stupid...

Ok, so as much for my own piece of mind, here's the Greyhawk map together with Lankhmar's CA2 Swords of Deceit map:

Maybe a sale on kidney beans that week?

Here's another orphaned Lankhmar map:

I'm not sure which mod this one belongs to, maybe LNR2 Tales of Lankhmar?  

Or, the map is titled City of Adventure, so maybe it goes with 9162 City of Adventure (though that one has another pull-out map booklet)

If anyone can confirm, please, I'd be much obliged :)

Yes, it goes to "Lankhmar: City of Adventure" 2137

This one:

I believe the map came with both CoA releases; at least I have one that came with the 1st edition one (the second you list).

The Lankhmar map I was referring to looks more like the Greyhawk map posted above, and was included in the (really badly done) Lankhmar boxed set, which was subtitled, "New Adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser." It was like a Basic D&D for Lankhmar, with character advancement only up to level 3, IIRC.

I always liked the blank squares and city geomorph booklet for the original CoA. No less useful than any other geomorph product, and it did allow one to DM Lankhmar with the city map hanging up on the wall while simultaneously keeping some areas unknown. To each his own.

The 2137 product has one of my all time favorite designs for versatility of use.  I usually frankenstein an adventure rather than creating things 'whole cloth'.  I've found this city design to be especially useful.
