For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to xyzbilliu's Shining Force: The Legacy Of Great Intention (Genesis) maps.

With New Year's comes the making of new resolutions.  These great intentions usually lead to a legacy of failure, as one's yearly gym membership goes unused after the first month.  But older than that cycle is the Legacy of the Ancients, which refers to the Dark Dragon, a being who has been sealed away for a millennium, and is about to return.  Will you travel across the kingdom of Runefaust to the Castle of the Ancients to stop Darksol from reviving this ancient evil?

The Shining Force games are tactical RPGs originally for the Sega Genesis, a console which isn't usually remembered for its RPG selection.  But this game is an earlier example of a tactical strategy game, where one must manage positions of individual units during a battle.  Surely that distinction should count for something, and xyzbilliu has immortalized this legacy by mapping it all out.  All eight chapters, and all thirty battles (with mini-maps for each) are here for your viewing (and strategizing) pleasure.  Thanks, xyzbilliu!

So to recognize the effort put into fulfilling the intention to map this game, xyzbilliu's Shining Force: The Legacy Of Great Intention (Genesis) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for January 2012.
