Mapping Independence - Steamscapes: Asia Teaser #5

Historians and gamers alike have a rich love of maps. The depth of visual information available in a good map cannot be overstated. It can fire our imaginations and quickly clarify hundreds of words of text. A map is both summary and starting point.

This week, I present to you the map for Steamscapes: Asia. Like our North America map, this map was drawn by Robert Altbauer of Fantasy Map. In a single image, it represents our vision of a 19th-century Asia that has thrown off the yoke of colonialism, where new independent nations have risen alongside strong and ancient empires, where self-determination is the rule rather than the exception. I hope that you are inspired by the possibilities a map like this offers.
