My dad found a photo from his college D&D game, and we're wondering what setting this map on the wall might be from. A group of four people sit around a table playing Dungeons and Dragons. A large map hangs on the wall behind the group. The photo was taken in 1986, and my dad doesn't recall any specific setting information about the game (or, honestly, much information at all, aside from the fact that paladins were killjoys back in the day.). His DM was an author who wrote a couple of Conan novels, but he unfortunately passed away quite some time ago, so we can't exactly ask him personally.


That is a map of Middle-Earth showing the south and east along with the traditional map section from the novels.

    \$\begingroup\$ Specifically it was a map made by Iron Crown Enterprises for their Middle-Earth Roleplaying system. They made up the southern and eastern lands there, doesn’t come from Tolkien. Most of the map is only accurate when playing in that game system. \$\endgroup\$ Jul 4 '21 at 5:32
