I'm a DM about to start a campaign of Scales of War with my group. I have all of the stuff ready, except for the maps. I purchased a DDI Subscription through Digital River, but when I download the maps from the Map Gallery of DDI, the files contain the DM's marked maps. I had heard there were unmarked versions, but the "No Tags" folder, it is empty. I would much prefer an unmarked version of the maps to use with my group. Does anyone know something I'm missing or will need to do? Thanks

Edit- I have also read more recently that only some issues of the Dungeon have no DM markings in the map documents, so I think this issue may be solved. If anyone has any other information, please let me know.


First off: This is my first time answering a question, so give me some slack if I do something wrong.

I did some research it looks like the 17 page Scales of War document has maps in it. I don't know what you mean by DM's marked maps, but they don't look like they are marked by anyone other than the creator of the maps. Here's a link to the doc I found: (deleted link due to a concerning comment) Sorry if this isn't the answer you're looking for!

    \$\begingroup\$ Usually, a "DM marked map" is a map marked only to the eyes of the DM. For example, for dungeons, it indicates where the traps, hidden doors and treasures are, which usually is not supposed to be seen by players. For city maps, it might indicate key locations that shouldn't be instantly known to players that they are key locations. \$\endgroup\$

If this is indeed the case (and my apologies if it is not), that is not only frowned upon in Stack Exchange, it's actually illegal. (I did not downvote) \$\endgroup\$ May 8 '18 at 1:37
