I am going to be beginning a 3.5 adventure using the Goodman Games…

I am going to be beginning a 3.5 adventure using the Goodman Games Dungeon Crawl Classics Modules.  I have enough modules to get me from level 1 to 15, but I am looking for a map of Aereth (the land that the DCCs use) to tie everything together.  I found one on the Goodman Games website, but it is broken into about 45 smaller chunks that I would have to print out seperately (which I will do if I need to, but it seems like kind of a pain).  The only map I can find is a medium sized one included in Module 35, which is a gazeteer that costs about $60 - All I really want is the map, so $60 seems kind of steep for all kinds of stuff I am not going to use and one map.

Anyone have any ideas as to where I might be able to find a map for this?

Download the 45 smaller chunks, take an hour to copy/paste them into Photoshop or Paint or whatever to create a single composite image, scale to taste, and print?

Seems like the best solution to me, assuming there isn't a good composite map anywhere else.

yeah - I might have to go that route - I will just have to find someplace with a plotter. Thanks for the suggestion.

There's"Stitch" software that photographers use. That might help.

if there is no overlap it might be a problem as stitching requires reference point to map things together.

Honestly, I've never used software like that before. Interesting. With map sections,even though you may not have overlap, you would have road and rivers and demarc lines that you match up on the edges of each image.

actually using ImageMagick I just assembled the images together. It took me more time to download the images (using an automated script) than to actually assemble them using the wonderful imagemagick.

4520 x 9000 pixel total :-) (the JPEG is already 17MB. The PNG is 73.8MB)

Any taker?

Too cool! Thanks a lot!

took me less than 15 minutes with wget and ImageMagick in the end. I think it will take more to the OP to find a place to print it.

Can't you just scale down and print it at whatever resolution you want at home (say 1 page, or 2 pages, or whatever)? Or just print out the sections you're using at the time?

I personally use my laptop when DMing, so I'm generally okay with just having digital maps.

surely. I just provided the full size image from the set of tiles for the OP's leisure :-)
