High Resolution Tamriel map (Elder Scrolls series)


Badge Awards

Location  Tamriel


You may purchase prints here on my RedBubble store (where you'll find many more products, such as pillows, mugs, tote bags, t-shirts, etc):…

Unfortunately I had to disable digital prints after I found my map being sold illegally all over the internet, so the original file is no longer available for downloads. :(


This is a -very- high resolution map of Tamriel from the Elder Scrolls game series. I made it in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

It is based on the low-res map included with The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (literally, the retail version of the game when it first came out included a print of that map). As reference, the events in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion take place around 3E 433, and the "Pocket Guide to the Empire, Third Edition" is meant to have been published in 3E 432, while the events in Skyrim take place around 4E 201.

I prioritised aesthetics over detailed information, so I left out rivers, small villages, and mountains' and forests' names. I added data which wasn't included in the original map, such as oceans, seas and small islands that were not labeled. There were also some islands who didn't even appear in the original map, so I drew them from scratch (it was meant to be hung on my bedroom wall as a big nice map, and definitely not to be used as a source of information while playing the games).

The text included is the foreword to the fictional book "Pocket Guide to the Empire, Third Edition"(…). This map is supposed to be part of the book and as such, it is signed by the organisation that wrote the book (the Imperial Geographic Society). The date is the (fictional) date the book was published.

You are very welcome to feature it in DeviantArt groups, a blog, a wiki, or whatever as long as you credit me (with a link back here or my DeviantArt profile). And please let me know you uploaded it and where to. I'ts important to me to know where my stuff is. If you see this somewhere else being claimed by someone as their own (with or without any modifications to the file), please, notify me by PM.

Can I purchase a high res file of this to turn into a wallpaper for our basement?
