Spent a good 10 hours clearing the map (black areas are either unreachable, or rather big cluster of trees), and another 2 learning how to use paint and not make it look like a complete abomination (thanks urjack for the help).
Was planning on including Elminsters messages, but gave up. I might edit some in later if anyone wants me to, along with shrines and other stuff like purple dragon knights outpost. For now I just included the stuff people would be most interested in.

Had to reduce image size over ten times its original size to fit the forums restrictions. To the guy(s) who made the kings forest, damn you to hell for making it so bloody big. Also nice job :D

They got a forest the size of Rhode Island . . . with three quests in it?

I smell room for expansion . ..

nice work! and it will be a time and "life"saver for many.

As a side note: We were informed that once you find all of the Elminster Messages, the map won't return to "Fog of War". I have not done this yet, so have not confirmed it.

Great work to the OP for not only thorough exploration, but taking time to screenshot and share it -- With Notes!

Positive contribution indeed. Could you also paste an URL to the original sized image?

I was kinda banking on that at first, but after walking literally everywhere in the place, still missing 5-6 messages. I'll wander back in there later to see if I can find them, but i'm not too hopeful.

It may be worth posting your original in here:

It's the King's Forest feedback thread, based on the sheer size of your map I was going to make a suggestion over there.

Better then photobucket, but still only about half the original size :/

Edit: ignore this bit

There are some caves that look suspiciously like quest entrances that don't lead anywhere yet.

Individual file size should be 10M. How big exactly IS the full image :eek:
If you're just above the file size, try fiddling with JPG compression.

Are you sure?

The preview is only 1.3MB, 1230x1600. But if you click the menu to save it, you get a 5.3MB, 2472x3216 version.

How big is your original?

Ah, then nvm, you got it :) Was judging based off the preview, my mistake.

Seems far to big for just 3 quests.

Does not come close to the size of the underdark and most the quests there are in Sschindylryn. Anyway, Ya, I believe it was created with expansion in mind.

The in game mapping is broken s is hard to take a Pic... although I know where all the quests are and many of the nameds spawn.

Actually, in sheer size kings forest is quite a bit bigger then the underdark. The underdark has a lot of 3d traveling though so i might feel differently.

The Drow city doesnt have a map yet? Here ya go!

http://i845.photobucket.com/albums/ab18/probeaddicted/DrowCity.png
Just west of the farthest northwestern shrine, is House D
Southeast of the farthest northeaster shrine, is House S
Southwest of the farthest southern shrine, is House A
North Central, is the Final quest in the series, can't think of the name. Just north of the golden X in the center.
Farthest southern golden X is the portal to/from the Underdark
Golden X In the center of the map is the Portal to/from the city from the cave.

Oh, and have one for House Dun'Robar as well.....

http://i845.photobucket.com/albums/ab18/probeaddicted/HouseDunRobar.png
You enter in at the south western hallway
The gate that requires 2 people is in the southeast, along with quite a few optional weapon boxes.
The 2nd Purple Crystal from the north west is where the weaponsmasters weapon box.
The Purple Crystal at the farthest northwest, is the Matron's room
The Purple Crystal in the Southwest is the Bell

Nice work, but Message # 6 is actually not where you indicate on the map, Its in the Field south and to the west of where you have it indicated on the map.
