Dead Man Walking Route Map

Does one exist? I've trawled through to posts six years old, and while two or three have discussed the game, I couldn't find a route map (and the completionist in me won't let me consider a CYoA 'experienced' until I've run through all paths).

I have a map somewhere in a box in storage that I may never see again haha!

The problem with a map too, is that there are paths available to you only if you have Jacob from the elevator (not boat club), paths only available with the bike, or bit/not bit, or if you are truly reckless.

My favorite and least accessible are the Bank scene, the elderly Chinese man in the Newstand, and blowing up a Banshee with the hobo's propane bombs.

Alright, if you find that map, it'd be awesome. In case you don't, could you give hints on how to get to those hard to reach scenes (and maybe a couple other that you'd recommend as well)?

Without my notes and it having been published so long ago, I'm not sure how reliable I could be haha!

But let's see... Most of the more interesting things happen off simply walking out into the street from the Parking Garage without looking first.

You have a Banshee in Fox Park, the leap over the side to the Bank scene, Jacob in the elevator, but won't have the Bicycle option.

The Chinese man in the Newsstand scene is perhaps the hardest to get. You have to have the bike, go around the back of the Hospital, while being chased by a horde, then climb up the dumpster onto the roof. From there, drop down the east side of the hospital - but, unless it's night time, you'll miss the scene, because it's all about finding a safe place to sleep. If you are bit at this point, you realize you are a carrier. It is the only way to save Jacob (or your Wife) if you are bit before this point.

A lot of content is also missed by going across the railroad bridge, rather than taking the rowboat directly across the river to the cemetery.

The hobo scene happens only if you go south on foot or by bicycle.

There is also a scene I had fun writing, involving hiding in the coffin in the back of a hearse after crashing it into a storefront.

One of the least accessible endings involves ending up sitting out the apocalypse with a leg chopped off at the cemetery after some misadventures at the drug store.

Plus many many more I can't even remember how to access anymore! ^v^

Alright, thank you very much for these! (If you recall other points of note, please do add them). Will probably launch a new section in the Lists for Parlor Room content, so it'll all be archived for future use (the OMS maze for one has been a source of questions multiple times over the years)

Is there a way to get out of the subway tunnels that doesn't involve using a ceiling hatch?

No, I don't believe I put any other way out, as it all leads to the parking garage scene from there.

Where is the "talkative zombie"?

The Bo cameo is reached by parking a block away from your house and walking through the neighbor's yard.

Boy did I miss out on the interesting parts. I guess playing from personal choice will rob you of those moments. 

I can make a route map of my past walkthrough as well as any future ones. But can't promise a completion date on it..

Sure, knock yourself out. However, we may want a word from Berka on how much randomness governs the game (if it's to a high degree, then the route map may be shaky at best due to RNG roll based changes)

The closest thing to that would be the Church scene. It plunks down whether you go north or south at the start. The Garage scene is also the same, regardless of going north, south, or an extra platform.
