    I am in the proccess of looking but if anyone would happen to have seen one recently or know where I could find one I would greatly appreciate it.

    Note: the first person to point me to a non-general source for copyright-free maps of the world (IE: not google) gets a prize.
    and unlike that other dude it's not 'knowledge'.

    Why do you need one that is copyright free?

    I'm sure if you're not selling it, I don't see why they won't let you use one if you ask them.

    I just need a blank one to fill out and use on my RPG site.
    OK, I will look for a site tomorrow, if anyone knows of a good source of maps...

    Try searching some government websites like the USGS or CIA. They will have plenty of public domain maps.
