Two of the maps joined together to give an overview of the setting as a whole (an area about twice as large as the United States), while the other two joined together to

I use these books even into the days of my Palladium campaign. Very useful books and loaded with roleplaying tidbits. Definitely a must have.

This was the good version of Forgotten Realms, actually on par with Greyhawk, before it all went down the silly superhero comic book drain.
