FAR WEST Cartography Notes

FAR WEST Cartography Notes

On November 14th 2011, after several months of preparation and hard work, the first Far West map was completed and approved. It was a long, arduous process, but the final results made it all worthwhile. My name is Andrew Law, and I have the honor of being the cartographer for Far West. If you want to know a little more about me, go check the Bios page. I can’t fully express my excitement at being involved with this project. For

Chartered Houses are given a free reign to operate, and often have their own settlements and even their own military. There are Chartered Houses that specialize in weapons production, Chartered Houses that run railways, Chartered Houses that are agricultural giants, Chartered Houses that run mining operations, etc. Three of the

Nine Pendants

Nine Pendants

by Chad Stevens Red breathed deep as he poured a fresh cup of tea. He loved the way the aroma filled him, but this blend didn’t smell right. “Hello, Tsai,” Red said, without turning to his unannounced visitor. “Shall I pour you a cup, too?” “They should call you Red Cat’s-Ears,” quipped Tsai. Red gave a short laugh. “Ears nothing. It’s those cigars you smoke. You couldn’t throw a worse scent if you wore a skunk around your neck. I
