Book of Legends: The Eternal Empire

A map to analyse Book 0 in Steven W Huggins’ Book of Legends series.

Huggins has created a straightforward map for an adventurer to explore – with some very interesting interactivities. Sections marked with a clock add to a timer, and when a certain amount of time has passed, global change occurs, passing the reader from Chapter 1 to Chapter 2. Many locations change between chapters (there are actually 3), with unique encounters and discoveries awaiting patient adventurers. If this can be sustained across his longer volumes, it could herald a new style of open-world that uses time as well as space – just as I’ve been trying to do in Steam Highwayman IV.
