Cartography is a skill that allows the character record a map of the game world as they explore.

Leveling up in the skill adds more details to the map.

|3||Green land, major objects in brown|
|4||Stone walls in darker brown|
|5||Indoor floors and roads in grey, major paths in brown, water in blue, shallows in aqua|
|6||Doors in bright green|
|7||Minor paths, beaches, barren land in brown, loot bags in purple|
|8||Wells in light grey|
|10||Levers in dark blue|

In Book I, if Cartography is boosted by an item or spell that temporarily improves the map, when the character then explores the area again after the effect expires or is removed, the improved map will be overwritten with an inferior one. In Book II, temporarily recorded map details will only be hidden when skill level decreases, and will appear again when Cartography increases back to the corresponding level. In Book III, recorded maps are permanent and will only be replaced by a superior version.
