Map of all dungeons?

Postby Josh » Tuesday September 4th, 2018 6:30pm

Has anyone made a detailed map of where all the dungeons & quests are in relation to each other?

I'm trying to figure out the distance between them so I can figure out travel time.

Not yet. It is possible in the game system, later it gets a bit boring because kellars keep and others just play in a single location.
Clmckays encounter quest books and Whitebeards DungeonsDark might be more interesting to place on a map.
Specifically those encounter quest books are made for maps.

I've found and saved a series of maps that have different locations mapped out from different people's ideas and interpretations, as well as different versions of maps of the Old World. (Link here if you're interested: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/akx9intxkuo5 ... 2kqva?dl=0) I'm using them to try to figure out locations for every Quest or Quest Pack and have a few so far, though I don't have a proper map to place them on. Some are invented locations based on ideas I've taken from other people, but still near to named locations in the Warhammer world. I intend to fill this in more as I discover more locations.

My locations so far:

Capital City - Altdorf
Mentor's Tower - just south outside of Nuln, overlooking the city

The Trial - Catacombs of Karev, south of Nuln
The Rescue of Sir Ragnar - dungeons under Knightskeep near Castle Drakenhof
Lair of the Orc Warlord - stronghold near Zhufbar on the shores of Black Water Lake
Mellar's Maze - near Karak Norn in the Grey Mountains
Prince Magnus' Gold - a hideout south of Kroppenleben in the foothills of the Black Mountains
Legacy of the Orc Warlord - near Ulag's old stronghold close to Black Water
The Lost Wizard - a secret lab in the catacombs under Altdorf
The Fire Mage - beneath Black Fire Crag, a small canyon passage section of Black Fire Pass
Race Against Time - Mound of Krell?
Castle of Mystery - ?
Bastion of Chaos - ?
Barak Tor: Barrow of the Witch Lord - Barak- Tor?
Quest for the Spirit Blade - ?
Return to Barak- Tor - Barak Tor?

Kellar's Keep - Karak-Varn, near Black Fire Pass

Return of the Witch Lord - Kalos, an underground keep under the ruined city of Morgheim

The Plague of Zombies - ?

The Halls of Durrag-Dol - south of Karak-Kadrin in the World's End Mountains near the source of the River Stir

Inn of Chaos - Inn in Zherdenschlosse, to the west of Durrag-Dol and east of Waldenhof

The Eyes of Chaos - ?

Revenge of the Weather-Man - Keep of the Windmaker?

Running the Gauntlet - across the Sea of Claws?

Against the Ogre Horde - ?

Elf Quest - Mage of the Mirror - ?

The Tower of the High Mage - Tarak Mountains?
Crypt of the Necromancer - crypt in a graveyard swamp beyond the Shuddering Forests?
Eyrie of the Storm Master - Dark Mountains?
Lair of the Orc Shaman - outside the Great Gate of Karak Varn in the foothills of the World's Edge Mountains
The Final Conflict - Zargon/Morcar's Citadel of Darkness?

Barbarian Quest - The Frozen Horror - ?

Advanced Quest: The Dark Company - sewers under the old section of Altdorf

A Growl of Thunder - ?

Check out the Definitive, Unofficially Official, HQ Cartography Discussion topic. Nothing finished, but a lot is discussed.

Sotiris also worked up a map for the Quests of the Game System for his play-by-post game. You can see an example here.

I love that you set "The Trial" near Nuln. In my own research, based mostly off the Sticker Album art that you have linked, it was suggested that Mentor's study is in or near Nuln, and when my heroes travel elsewhere the travel time is calculated accordingly.

I've got some great ideas about the wizards' quarter in Nuln, not the least of which is a Harry-Potter-esque "Diagon Alley"-type access route, hidden to those without the witch-sight.

Great research! Will be following.

I'm not sure who made this, but there's a lot of HeroQuest and Warhammer info here. I used it for my Durrag-Dol location and will have to scour it later to see what other goodies I can find.

I added a bunch more places to my list above over the weekend and this morning. I've also added a lot more blanks to fill, but at least now I know what I'm up against with all the official quests and quest packs.

I'm gonna go ahead and move my results over to this thread to keep things together with other cartography, maps, and location research: viewtopic.php?f=143&t=3552
