While I'm on the topic of maps in FF, I thought it would be worth drawing attention to Steve Luxton's blog, Mr Nibbs' New Maps (I didn't even realise there was a new incarnation of his blog until recently, very pleased to have found it). Steve has been discussing things with the members of titan_rebuilding and has been working with Arion Games to produce new maps of various places in Titan, of the continents, and the whole world. And look at the results! Maps of Salamonis, Lord Azzur's Palace, Port Blacksand, the continents and the whole of Titan in globe form. I particularly like the sketch map of northern Allansia, which captures the feel of the place wonderfully.
Actually, I can't help feeling that Steve Luxton has a lot to answer for. This blog for example. Steve's maps in Titan - The Fighting Fantasy World were one of the things that really hooked my imagination as a kid. I almost turned inside out with excitement the day I first saw Titan on the shelf of my local bookshop and realised it had maps of the three continents. These maps together with his maps in Midnight Rogue, Chasms of Malice, Vault of the Vampire and Fangs of Fury really brought depth to the world of FF. Let's hope we see some more of Steve's work published soon.
Which brings me to this:
I only found out about this map by Steve Luxton when reading the latest issue of Fighting Fantazine. I'd like to know more! I know it's in French, but where can I buy a copy? And will it be released in English too?
