Something foul is afoot when Queen Brahne Raza Alexandros XVI of Alexandria sets her beady eyes on the great nations of the Mist continent. But stoic Burmrecia and industrious Lindblum won't take any beatings not previously ordered! As the world heads towards war a group of unlikely adventurers set forth to take turns hitting things! Will they hit their way to world peace? Will Alexandria prevail or will history follow a different path? May your bows stay sharp and your bellies steeled!

This map is a love letter to my all time favourite game as well as all things Final Fantasy. Dark Mist's Avatar map was also a big inspiration (best warzone map!), just look at that sweet ocean blue!

Featuring IX exciting distribution modes!

As well as Dark Mist for unintentionally inspiring me with their Avatar Map!

A thoroughly researched and beautifully constructed map. Nice work!

A large map, but the sea routes allow for fast travel between areas. Some regions are easier to defend, but don't get complacent! Who knows what is happening in the mists. . . Another player may have secured vast lands that you cannot see. It is a map where psychology plays a major role.

In FFAs it often comes to a careful balance between defending your vulnerable coastline and overextending your capacity, only to be chomped by a large enemy. It pays to be cautious, but with a decisive expansion plan!

Many hidden secrets to this map, which add great depth to the games. Each continent has a unique flavour and tie to the lore of Final Fantasy. A great map for role players and strategists alike.

I love the originality of territory names haha! This is one of the main hangups I have about other maps (including the inspiration for this - Avatar) where the titles get a bit lazy as the maker nears end-game on such a labour-intensive project.

Honestly this map is one of the best I have ever seen. It looks absolutely stunning. Must have been a lot of work, and it payed off massively with such a great result. I love this map!

Good map. Balance is decent. I think the major bonuses are a little too large and difficult to hold which takes away from their strategic value. By the time you could hold one you would probably already have a large advantage and be on your way to winning.

Very interesting map! the artwork is gorgeous and the connections are all clear. The way the mountains block access to certain areas make this map more complex than it first appears. Recommend playing without blockade cards.

Epic. From a hand full of hearty souls struggling to survive on the rocky Lindblum coast to marching 10,000 men into Black Mage Village to complete my world dominance, it was a heck of a lot of fun. Beautiful map, lot's of interesting terrain made for varied and challenging play. I salute you.
