Forgot to mention this earlier. TOR is looking at setting up a small online site (with a link in the next book) where you will be able to find tactical and operational maps we couldn't fit into the page count of the book. I still have to get together with Joe Buckley about updating the Jiltanith map, but at least you should be able to track things like the route of Ahlvarez's retreat and major ship movements.

Thank you (and Tor) for doing that. I hope they are on a little larger scale than the maps in the book. One suggestion is that the tactical (battle maps) be downloadable so that we, your loyal readers, can print out the maps and track individual units. I would hope that the final result would look a lot like the battle maps in West Point's History of the Civil War or any of the many Osprey publications.

PS Thank you as well for the two very nice snippets. :)

Hi USMA74,

Hello RFC!

Thank you so very much, and amen to all that others have posted, as I suspect this was your idea when they balked at printing all the maps you wanted.

Even if it wasn't, thank you for letting us know.

Is there a date for it to be up and running?

Any snippet or post from RFC is good if not great!

I think it'd be fun if some of them were done in tech-level-appropriate styling and some were obviously generated by Owl. (Of course, the viewpoint that just wants them to be as clear as possible also has something for it.)

Better Maps???? GENIUS!!!! Love the idea. Hope this works out. Sometimes it's a little hard to see where the battle lines and current zone of controls for both sides are at. So many folks here seem to feel that Dohlar as an example will soon be isolated, but I just can't see it. Southern Harchong and Desnar certainly, if Silkah can be persuaded to allow it. But Dohlar, Well I have my doubts. Better maps to show how the two sides are deployed would certainly help clarify relative strengths and positions.
