D&D 5E An Atlas of the D&D Worlds?

Uerth

The D&D World of Uerth, which is a bizarro version of Oerth where alignments are switched, and "dweomers are weak, chancy things."

I slapped together a rough map of Uerth:

Maybe the land could be water and the water land?

Aelos

The D&D World of Aelos is a parallel version of Mystara, from the UK module CM6: Where Chaos Reigns. There are amateur articles about Aelos here. Aelos was invaded by Oards, which are very similar in appearance to the Borg.

I don't have scans of the regional maps of Aelos (there's no full world map), and the maps are from different times in Aelos' history, since CM6 is a time-travel adventure. But Mystara aficionado LoZompatore made a map which uses the continental shapes of Mystara...but rotated 180 degrees! The canonical regional maps of Aelos fit surprisingly well:

Any more D&D worlds to include in the Atlas of the D&D Multiverse?

If you're going for obscure, there is also Penumbra - the artifical discworld of the illithid race (couldn't find an existing map via google).

Also, Tekumel - the Empire of the Petal Throne

Expanding the atlas to other Golden Age rpg worlds

If you're going for obscure, there is also Penumbra - the artifical discworld of the illithid race (couldn't find an existing map via google).

Yep, Penumbra and all of the hundreds of Spelljammer worlds would be included on the overview map of the Material Plane; and some of them would be given at least a small sketch of a world map.

Also, Tekumel - the Empire of the Petal Throne

Though it's going beyond the original concept of an atlas which brings together all the TSR/WotC worlds of D&D, it would be a bonus if WotC reached out to the key "Golden Age" rpg settings from other game companies and incorporated those worlds into the D&D Multiverse (or rather, a parallel version of those worlds, so that that the "non-D&D" version of the world is considered to still exist in another reality). They'd be retrofitted for the Great Wheel.

If we're going to go that far, then Troll World (1975), Bunnies & Burrows (1976), Wilderlands of High Fantasy (1976), The Misty Isles (1977), Arduin (1977), Glorantha (1978), Archaeron (1979; Chivalry & Sorcery), Bleakwood (1979; Adventures in Fantasy), Kèthîra (Hârn; 1983), Palladium World (1983), Pendragon's Arthurian Britain (1985), Talislanta (1987), Mythic Europe (1987; Ars Magica), Shadow World (1987), Space: 1889 (1988), and Earthdawn (1993) would be great old-school additions to the Atlas of the D&D Multiverse. There's nothing inherently stopping the D&D Brand Team from reaching out to whichever companies hold these rights to see if they could make an agreement and bring all these worlds fully into the D&D Multiverse.

Ideally the agreement would stipulate that beyond the initial inclusion in the Atlas, plus the option of making one worldbook, WotC would have a perpetual right to briefly mention that world as being part of the D&D Multiverse.

Petroyeska

An Eastern European-themed setting by James Wyatt which was featured in:

  • Deities & Demigods: The Repose and Liberation domains come from Petroyeska.
  • "Half-Pint Heroes" (DRAGON #262): He originally developed the ravenkin as a character race for Petroyeska.

Here's the archived webpage about the D&D World of Petroyeska.

These are Wyatt's hand-drawn maps:

Aquela

Another world from Wyatt which has been partially published by WotC. This one is a water world. Here's the archived website for the D&D World of Aquela.

Aquela's Published Appearances:

  • "The Sunken Shadow" (DUNGEON #66): This adventure began as an Aquela
    adventure.
  • "Heroes of the Sea" (DRAGON #250): The liminal race comes from Aquela, and
    obviously the whole concept owes a lot to Aquel.
  • "Half-Pint Heroes" (DRAGON #262): He originally developed the grippli as a
    character race for Aquela.
  • Monsters of Faerûn: The tainted one yuan-ti was developed for
    Aquela.
  • Deities and Demigods: The Faith of the Sun and the worship of
    Elishar are based on Aquelan faiths.

There are a whole bunch of other maps at his website: island maps and historical maps.

Not quite - Tekumel was printed by TSR itself in 1975, though Mr. Barker must have kept the copyright to be able to publish it elsewhere - including Tekumel would be akin to including Lankhmar, Kalamar & Hyperborea in the atlas.

The others you mention, I don't believe ever had an "official" TSR publication.
 

Imperium Romanum

Jame's Wyatt's historical roman D&D campaign. Here's the archived Imperium Romanum webpages. This is "D&D Earth" during Roman times.

The Imperium Romanum's Published Appearances:

  • "Fantastic Phantasms" (DRAGON Annual #2): Most of these spells were created
    by Jannes, his character in this campaign.
  • Deities & Demigods: The faun race and the faith of Dennari
    both come from the Imperium campaign.

The same world map serves for Wyatt's Christian-themed Shield of Faith campaign model which is archived here.

Oh, I see. Right. Besides Tekumel, Judges Guild had a licensed relationship with TSR. And Wee Warriors products (the makers of the Misty Isles "campaign setting") were distributed by TSR.

5E might be just the right time to do full-blown Tekumel D&D.
