The island continents of Dilmun contains many places to explore. The cities, ruins and other places to visit are often difficult to navigate, and even contain hidden treasures that can be overlooked. Below are several maps that will help with your journey while playing Dragon Wars. Everywhere from Purgatory through Nisir, with treasure markets, paragraph notifications and skill activators. Our walkthrough page also contains links to these maps (so you don't need to jump back and forth). Click a link or map image below to view a large version of the map.
NOTE: These maps are based off of the DOS version of Dragon Wars. The Amiga and Apple versions are very similar, and the maps should be the same for both. Since the Nintendo (NES) user interface is different from other versions, the maps may be slightly different for that system.
