My Afristan Setting

In my last post, I referred to a "a mini-continent in the Indian Ocean".  To the left is an image of AFRISTAN (click on graphic for larger image), an imaginary setting for Colonial adventures set somewhere in the Indian Ocean.

It has, over the centuries, been populated by various peoples from the surrounding land masses.

Yes, Pathans and Zulus and Beja and, well you know the list . . . and maybe a few surprises as well.

The version pictured here lacks any indication of who lives where . . . so that if you wish to borrow it for your own use, you certainly may . . . and populate it as you wish.

My long-term goal is to have not only the British, but also Germans, French Foreign Legion and Ottoman Turks exploring Afristan.  To start with, I am limited to British and Turks . . . well Egyptians masquerading as Turks . . . along with a mess of Natives, of course.

  1. Nice map!

    I'm thinking about just drawing the outline of a continent and using the rules from the Source of the Nile game to explore the map to build it up (and play out some adventures). But that's a long way off and things may change before I get there.
