There are a lot of people playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and getting lost or confounded with the terrain and paths to take. But leave it on the internet to cover a popular game and render it into an interactive, annotated map that anyone can use online or download to their PCs.
Perhaps the best map of the Province of Cyrodiil is the one annotated by Jonathan D Wells and made available online for the benefit of fellow Oblivion players. Similar maps may be found on other websites as well. As is sensible, be sure to scan the file for virus and malware before and immediately after downloading.
What the Oblivion Map contains:
The elder scrolls map contains a lot of useful markers that point the location of the many places you might need to cover during a day’s gameplay. There are way shrines, natural landmarks, Gates to Oblivion, Doomstones, Deadra Shrines, as well as campsites and settlements. You may find need of various points as you progress in the game, so it is lucky they can all be found in one map download or website that you can access simultaneously. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
Oblivion Map: No Downloads:
In case you’re skeptical about downloading the map to your PC, you can always access it online. The site you need to log on to is tamrielma.ps, taking the URL name from Tamriel, the name of the empire. The map can be zoomed in and out holding control on your PC. You can use the check marks in the legend to toggle various points on interest on and off in the map to get a clearer idea about where things are located, at what density and where you need to go starting from one to locate the other.
The map is pretty detailed and roughly to scale. There is a fair amount of detail, though it doesn’t translate to much advantage when playing the game. Among the many things pinpointed on the map using markers are Runestones, Doomstones, Way Shrines, Mines, Oblivion Gates, Ayleid Ruins, Caves, Camps, Settlements, Peaks, Inns, Cities, Forts, and Daerics. Highlighting them in the map allows you to make some pretty neat observations, such as the proximity on cities in Cheydinhal and the Imperial City inside the big moat that is Lake Rumare.
Other Annotated Game Maps:
Among other game maps available to peruse are those for Skyrim, Shivering Isles, and Dragonborn.
Map of Oblivion: Apps and Extensions
In case you’re not comfortable with using the map on the PC alone, you can get the content to try out on your phone as an app. The app is available for Android on Google Play Store, for iOS on the App Store, on Windows Store for both Phone and PC, as well as on Amazon App Store and Firefox Marketplace for devices like Kindle and Firefox OS running gadgets.
That’s not all. Tamrielma.ps can also be accessed using a chrome extension, eliminating a lot of unnecessary clicking and dialing URLs.
There are also apps that show the map for Skyrim specifically in HD, if you play the game, along with the usual Tamriel maps app like shivering isles map.I hope this helps.
