In 1976, Bob Bledsaw and Bill Owens went into business as Judges Guild. Their initial offering was centered on a magnificent 22" by 34" map of the City State of Invincible Overlord. First appearing at Gen Con IX, it was sold literally out of the trunk of a car during the convention.

Now forty years later that map has been redrawn in full color. It preserves all the original detail while adding new ones like rocks, foot paths, trees, and shrubbery. This has been checked against the no-name city blueprint that was the first draft of the map. This helped to clarify details obscured by the offset printing process used in the 1970s.

This map is not a scanned image of the original but has been redrawn from scratch.

This product contains several versions of the map.

A vector based PDF with layers at 22" by 34"
A bitmap based PDF at 22" by 34"
A jpeg of the map with building labels and legends removed suitable for Virtual Tabletop software.
Instructions for using the VTT map with Roll20
A 17" by 14" map with the city arranged in its correct location on the original 5 mile hex map published on the back of the Wilderlands of High Fantasy.
A PDF with overlapping sections of the full map suitable for printing on letter size paper.
A PDF with a letter sized black and white only map suitable for taking notes on during a campaign.

This product is a authorized Judges Guild release for the Wilderlands of High Fantasy.

A coupon for a complimentary copy will be offered to all backers of the City State of the Invincible Overlord kickstarter. Please check the comment section of the Kickstarter for instructions.

I released a print option. If you bought the PDF looks in your email for a low cost discount code. The price for Print plus PDF is $10.

The package contains five maps.
Four full scale maps of the four quarters of the city. There is considerable overlap between the map.
One overall map of the city resized to fit 12" by 18".

I didn't do it sooner because I thought they were discontinuing the 18" by 12" poster option.

Thanks and appreciate the compliment. I am glad to get it out there into people's hand and to be able to do something about the kickstarter situation. Even though it doesn't fix the issue with Robert III disappearing or what he owes.

This looks really great!  Dumb question: if I purchase the print option, that means I will actually receive the 4 sheets and poster already printed, or that I will have access to a digital copy that I can then print myself?  I am not up for printing myself and hope this means I can order the maps as physical copies and have them sent to me.  THanks!

You will get 4 12x18 inch printed sheets. Rob also has some additional maps he plans to add soon.

The print option means you get actual print copies. Five posters in all. Four that can be assembled into the full scale map and the fifth which is the map sized to fit the 12" by 18" paper size.

Make sure you select print + PDF as I don't charge extra for PDFs when you get print. That way you have the best of both worlds.

These were available at our booth at GaryCon, and sold out quickly.  We plan to restock for NTX!
