1991 saw the release of the Rules Cyclopedia, compiling all of the rules from the BECMI era into a single volume. The book also included a short gazetteer of the Known World, with more than 10 pages of maps.
According to Bruce Heard, the Rules Cyclopedia‘s maps were taken directly from the TM1 and TM2 trail maps, so they are identical to those maps in most respects. This replica presents the maps in combined form, so it’s possible to see at a glance what areas the Rules Cyclopedia covers.

About Replica Maps
Unlike Updated maps, Replica maps are exact (or sometimes colourised) replicas of primary source maps. These source maps form the main source material of the Atlas of Mystara, from which all of the updated maps are made. Put simply:
- Replica maps present the world of Mystara as the original source materials depict it, warts and all. No attempt has been made to fix errors of any kind — even typos. Replica maps are always marked as such on this site.
- Updated maps present the Atlas of Mystara‘s consistent view of the world, with all errors, alignment issues, and so on fixed. Anything not marked as a replica map is an updated map.
