Magic Maps are an essential tool to any serious explorer in the Twilight Forest. Crafted with Paper and a Magic Map Focus, it links intrinsically to the dimension to show valuable information of the surrounding lands around the bearer.


A magic map works much in the same way as a map in the Overworld does but with key differences. Because of its link to the fabric of the Twilight Forest dimension, it cannot locate the user if they are in a different dimension. Helpfully, when first used it will show an area four times larger than an Overworld map. While it can be duplicated, the view cannot be expanded, thus several maps will need to be crafted (by moving outside of the bounds of an existing map) for those who explore further afield.

Unlike an Overworld map, a Magic Map does not show the lay of the land, but instead, the various biomes of the Twilight Forest and their boundaries in various colours. As such, one can ascertain what area of the forest they are in, as well as nearby regions at a glance. In particular, it can be easily seen on a map where some biomes are surrounded by others, which may be under magical protection. For example, an explorer will not be able to travel into the Fire Swamp without first defeating a Minoshroom deep in its Labyrinth.

The map's magical focus is also able to detect major landmarks, marking them with distinct icons onto the map. Combined with the biome mapping, an explorer should have no trouble in determining where they are and where they want to venture to in the Twilight Forest.

See below for the key to the many and varied biomes in the Forest, as well as the landmarks where adventure can be found.
