Mobuttu:

Wanted to let you know that this map has helped my group tremendously. I was able to get it printed out nicely sized @ work.

And I've sent it to my gaming group, as we Skype from 3 locations - having your map allows up to see the same information, at a glance, and explain some of the powers-at-play to the newer players w/o pulling out loads of books.

Please keep up the great work (I'd donate if I could).

I'm flattered!! That's very kind of you! I did this map precisely for helping my players and myself understand and bundle together all the geographic information scattered in Rifts books, and I'm really glad that it serve you as well as it does to me. :-D

Do anyone know if there are other maps of other continents (Middle/South America, Europe, Asia) being made? :)

I dont think Chi-Town is in the middle of Illinois. I believe it should be just south of Chicago.

Doesn't the GM guide have it marked slightly in between the center and the ruins of Chicago?

By the looks of the GMG, it would seem that they have it nearly due south from Chicago, where as Mobuttu's map has it more west and slightly more north. The location of Chi-Town was previously discussed in another thread (I can't remember off hand), but I do remember that someone had said that the best location for it would have been where two (or more) interstate highways cross. By looking at an actual map of Illinois, the best two cities would be Champaign (where I-72 and I-57 cross), which happens to be roughly 80-100 miles due south, and Peoria (where I-55, I-72, and I-39 go to or through) which is roughly 80-100 miles southwest of Chicago. They are both fantastic places for Chi-Town to be, and the most important part is that they are both about 80 miles south of the ruins of Chicago. And as for the maps in the books, I look at them like I would an old west frontier map. The locations may be off a little and the scale may not be right, but as long as it is roughly 75% correct or better, I am happy.

Will this be a global map? Not entirely clear on what a GIS map is. I am semi familiar. IE I know it is a computer map. I just don't know what a GIS map entails or how they work.

Excellent map, so awesome.

The location of Chi-Town in the books is actually fairly vague. Rather than tell us exactly where Chi-Town is, we are told that the ruins of old Chicago are "...some 80 miles northeast of Chi-Town." (RUE p29/RMB p141). Apart from that we have only a dot on a relatively small map. That dot looks a lot more south than southwest, in fact if you draw a line from Old Chicago to St Louis on that map then Chi-Town is on the east side of that line, whereas you would expect Chi-Town to be clearly west of that line if you conclude it is roughly 80 miles southeast of Chicago as it is on this map.

To be honest I'm happy keeping it there for the moment because your map is so much more superior to anything published I'd rather stay with that.

Also where you have it puts it quite close to the Illinois River which makes perfect sense. A town in a post apocalyptic setting would naturally be built near a fresh water supply.

That is also assuming that Chi-Town is almost exactly southwest, when it could be anywhere from south-southwest to west-southwest and so forth...

I still have several unread Rifts books (specially the latest ones), so a new update is something not be ruled out.

There was a question involving the Waukegan CSN base. I would assume that the CS has simply moved into the US Navy's Naval Education and Training Center Great Lakes, in Waukegan, Illinois. I spent 6 months in that place, and have a handful of great memories, and many more I'd rather not revisit (basic training) at that place. A bit too flat for this Georgia Boy.

Like everyone else, I think this is an amazing map, and I find it invaluable.

One thing that's been driving me crazy though is this town on the Ohio River called Blackberry.

What is it? I can't find it in any of the books. I don't know where to look. Help!

Just wanted to chime in the your map came in extremely helpful in a session last month, when we were determining how to travel to escort a VIP between Merctown to Lazlo. Your shadings & showing where CS 'owned' locations were, helped the less-experienced-in-Rifts players realize that going from point A to point B in a straight line is NOT a wise idea. :lol:

Hope to see more information as you work your way through the other books.

Happy holidays!

This is a really useful resource that ive seen used in games and used myself. Its also great for getting a better understanding of Rifts-NA as a whole.

I saw that there was an earlier version of this (1.2 i think) as a png, which loads far quicker(for me) than the pdf. Very useful.

Still an awesome product.

Next version, do you mind adding the nexus points and ley lines associated with the Deep South on page 32 of RUE? Nexus Points are at Oxford MS, Selma AL, Talladega AL, and Guntersville AL.

Very nice map, but if I recall, the hives in Manitoba are south of Winnipeg, and expanding away from the city, not towards it...which makes the write-up I have for the area useable! :lol:

Fantastic job, I wish there were more accessible sites and maps with this kind of quality.

Gonna try to ask this again (I've PM'd the author but not sure he's still working on this/blogging at all).


This map is great. There are a few things missing from the newer books, but otherwise, it's the best reference ever, and often leads one who may be quite well versed in Rifts to learn about new things, or remember old things, or see things in a new light. The town of Blackberry may be one such amazing new thing of light.

In the map, along the Ohio river, in southern Ohio, is a town called Blackberry. It's near Bloom. Bloom is probably placed based on a guess by the author. That's totally cool. I know where Bloom comes from (Madhaven). There is also a Black market base near Cincinnati that does not appear on this map (he probably did not use the Black market book at all). Also totally cool. I know what should be there (and last I checked it wasn't called Blackberry).

I cannot find any hint of a town called Blackberry. I have come to the conclusion that this town is either an invention of the author (that he put in his map because it is his map and he should put such things there), or it is an optional town from a Rifter, or it is the greatest source of hidden lore in all of Rifts canon.

My own campaign background/world/story/whatever occurs very close to that area, and so far canon has done nothing but provide character and depth for my story. The more the better.

Perhaps it is right under my nose, but my nose is big. Please help me see. Please.

Is there a PNG file for V1.6 so GM's can update it with their own creations for cities and towns? That would be great thanks!

I am of the opinion Imgur is a much better host:

Aside from the fact you can't pick your file name.

Dang, the v1.6 map link is broken. Apparently it's been removed from Dropbox or to a different link. Did anyone save it?

That does, thank you. My brain apparently translated everything below the long line as part of the signature text.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Ys20C0FD3YNY4sAVbAqSXlizJQ9Q_H_r I finally uploaded it to my google drive as well if anyone is having trouble finding it. Sorry it took so long for me to dig it up.

Edit: I closed my old google account and had to re-upload on my current one. Hope everyone enjoys.
