Very nice!

I love how Magna Veritas went with Peking as the spelling of Beijing.

Probably still the most controversial realm in TORG :ugeek:

Just in case it isn't obvious, those maps are not official.

For Magna Verita specifically, I'm fairly certain the capital of "the Australias" (Port Innocent) is actually meant to refer to the real-world city of Darwin, in our Australia's Northern Territory (my original copy of the book is buried until a pile of other books, so i can't verify easily). For Beijing./Peking, the book was written in 1991. At the time, China had officially been using Hanyu Pinyin (ie "Beijing") since 1982. At the time, Taiwan was using Wade-Giles (ie "Peking") romanisation (they wouldn't switch to pinyin until 2008). I don't recall when exactly culture politics began to favour PRC over Taiwan, but I suspect the shift from W-G to pinyin reflects that shift.

Very nice.

I've updated the Book-House pages for Orrorsh and The Cyberpapacy. Hopefully the descriptions I added made it clear enough that these are fanon maps. :)
