The “Panzer Dragoon Maps” topic made me remember a couple of things:
In the background of this official Panzer Dragoon Orta wallpaper you can just make out what looks like a map for the game. As I don’t own any of the PDO guidebooks, I was wondering if this map appears in one of them (like the older maps)? Or if it appears (in full) anywhere in the known universe?
Some time ago I remember coming across a map that showed the locations of all the Towers in the PD world. I’m not sure if it was official, though, but I think (?) it came up on the old Excavation Camp forums at some point. Does anyone have a copy of this map, or know where I can find it? (And does anyone know if it was official or not?)
Yeah, I do remember that the Tower map was pretty unexiting. The reason I’m curious is that for these annotated maps I’m working on for TWOTA, I’m trying to include as much detail as possible. If I had that Towers map, I would be able to locate those Towers on any of the other four maps, which would be nice. So if anyone does have a copy of the thing, it would be very much appreciated.
Great, thanks Solo. Strange as it seems, that’s an extra seven Towers to add to the PD1 / Zwei map. They must have been surprisingly well concealed…
I suspect that the Tower of Uru is highlighted in red because it’s the Tower you can find in PDS (It is a PDS guidebook, after all), but who knows? It could easily have been a more important Tower than most, or had some other special significance.
I would love to see the Towers activated again - they’re what make the Panzer Dragoon universe so interesting, in my opinion. Hopefully in the next Panzer Dragoon RPG we will see the true reasons why the Towers were built in the first place.
