* ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' likewise has several, although it's not always clear how the different continents relate to each other.
** A fan (and troper) created a map showing the continents in several different configurations and Steven Erikson eventually confirmed one as mostly accurate; it can be found on various fan sites.

** Long before the official map of Equestria came out, [[http://hlissner.deviantart.com/art/Equestria-and-beyond-rev-8-1-253465186 a particularly epic map]] of Equestria and the surrounding world has been under development for an upcoming fanfic, ''[[http://wtwe.wikia.com/wiki/Where_the_World_Ends_Wiki Where the World Ends]]''. It uses locations that appear in other fan works such as [[FanFic/ItsADangerousBusinessGoingOutYourDoor Gildedale]]. Many of the map's fantasy elements originate in the lore pertaining to the story it's written for. Needless to say, the map is significantly more detailed than the official one, and includes an enormous amount of fan-made lands. See that small green country near the lower right corner? That's Equestria.
** [[http://vikonaut.deviantart.com/art/Map-of-Equestria-MLP-FIM-263695231 Another]] pre-official map shows Equestria and surrounding lands as a [[AFterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] U.S. East Coast. It's nearly as complex and detailed as the one above -- Canterlot, Ponyville and Cloudsdale are all rubbing shoulders in a tiny patch of the northwest of the map.

As a whole, these maps make abundant used of HereThereBeDragons.

* ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' features an expansive map of titular continent, which can be viewed in full [[http://www.gamebanshee.com/arcanum/theworld.php here]]. Interestingly, the map was apparently made by the "Troika Cartography Associates", an in-universe organization that shares a name with the company that made Arcanum.

** The plane of Ixalan also got [[https://mtg.gamepedia.com/media/mtg.gamepedia.com/d/d4/Ixalan_map.png?version=58101e725f4e592dceedffca8c4eff54 a map]] of the eponymous continent and the surrounding seas, showing the locations of various story-important areas such as the cities of the Sun Empire, the merfolk territories, the conquistador forts and the floating city of High and Dry. Torrezon, the other named continent of the plane of Ixalan, is not shown, but this does not have much of an impact, since in-story it only exists as a place for the conquistadors and the pirates to have come from in the backstory.

* Back in the '90s, Creator/WizardsOfTheCoast released several maps of the world of Dominaria, the main setting of ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', focusing on the continents of Aerona, Terisiare, and Jamuraa. There is also a globe of the entire world hidden away somewhere in [=WotC=] HQ, though no one outside the company has ever seen it. Since then, however, the only map they've published is a very sketchy one of the continent of Otaria. Today they just throw out a new setting every year with no indication of what's where in relation to everything else.
** Pete Venters (creator of the aforementioned globe) did release [[http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/article/Image:Dominariaglobe.jpg a map based on it]]. It only shows one hemisphere and there's a few clouds, but Aerona and other land masses are recognizable.
*** [[http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/article/Image:Kamigawa.jpg There is a Kamigawa map]], it just shows a small, isolated part of the world.
** It's also worth noting that there is no complete map of Dominaria. Almost all the maps show a single continent, and the most comprehensive map we have shows only a part of the northern hemisphere. Then there are the continents with ''no map at all'', which we have to rely on the background story to fathom where they're located. Damn you, Pete.
