I had an interesting exchange with a customer this week.  I've copied in the meat of their question...

I see this product is available on your site.  I already own a hard
copy of the module, but I think I'm missing a piece of it. Is there a
DM map that goes with the keyed encounters that start on page 46? I
have a city map inside the cover, a huge color map that looks like
it's for players, and detail maps here and there through the
module--but there doesn't seem to be a DM map, and the keyed
encounters don't seem to go with anything I do have.

On page 30, it says one of the three types of encounters are
"encounters keyed to areas on the map. When the PCs reach
the circled area corresponding to a letter, they have that encounter."


We talked about it over a couple of days at the end of which they were able to share some information regarding the missing map they had just discovered. I'm pasting that in as well.

I wrote to Jean Rabe, one of the co-authors of the module. Here's
what she said:

"Chult . . . ugh . . . you hit it right. TSR left out one of the maps.
For years I'd kept the original in my office, and anytime someone sent me a letter, I'd photocopy it and send it out (usually along with something
else sitting around my office). But when I left TSR to write books full time,
I didn't take the map with me.

"My best guess is that the original has decomposed in a landfill. I
really wish I'd kept it though, as I sold a couple of copies of Jungle on Ebay, and still have one or two in the basement. Had I been thinking, I could have photocopied the missing map and sent it out, too.

"That wasn't the first time maps had been left out of TSR products. It
just happened from time to time. No publisher is perfect."


I was impressed by my customer's detective work and thought I would share the knowledge with the community.

Now the question becomes, can we track this down and archive it someplace.

Yes, that was my hope.  If we do track it down, I suppose we would need to contact Ms. Rabe again for permission to post it? Would TSR/WoTC have a claim to it if it was not published as part of the copyrighted module?

I suspect they would...not that there is likely an office at WOTC dedicated to tracking down and punishing people who bootleg the Jean Rabe manuscript map.
