Using Cartography
To use the Cartography skill to create maps:
  • Stand in the location you wish to map.
  • Double-click your cartography tool (mapmaker's pen)
  • Choose "Maps" from the left-hand side of the craft menu.
  • Choose the type of map you would like to create from the right-hand side of the menu.
You create a map that varies in range and quality, depending on your skill. Your location when creating the map is always the center of the map.

Note: You will not be able to craft any items if your backpack already contains the limit of 125 items.
Craftable Items
Below is a list of the items a cartographer can create, the materials required, and the minimum skill level needed.

(Note: Some items may require the Samurai Empire and/or the Mondain's Legacy expansion packs.)

Resources Needed
Req. Skill
Local Map
1 blank map or scroll
City Map
1 blank map or scroll
Sea Chart
1 blank map or scroll
World Map
1 blank map or scroll
Tattered Wall Map (south or east)
See below

* The Tattered Wall Map requires a selection of completed treasure maps. The maps must have been both decoded and completed by the cartographer. The types of maps needed are as follows:
  • Level 1 Treasure Map: 10
  • Level 3 Treasure Map: 5
  • Level 4 Treasure Map: 3
  • Level 5 Treasure Map: 1
To use the Cartography skill to decode treasure maps:
  • Double-click a coded treasure map in your inventory.
If your skill is high enough, you decode the map and learn directions to buried treasure. Once you have decoded a map, only you can dig up the treasure using the Mining skill. You cannot locate treasure with a map decoded by another player.

Hint: Cartography can be a handy skill for boat owners. Plot your course using a "sea chart" map, and then give the map to the boat's tillerman. Say "Start" and your tillerman steers the boat on the course you have plotted.
