How to Survive the Apocalypse & Other Simple Tasks
Game Master Guide
The following are maps of key places in North America, Europe and
other places. Much of the world has yet to be explored in the various
Rifts® World Books so no maps are available (yet) for them. As Rifts
Earth continues to be explored more maps will appear their respective
World Books (China is in the near future), and maybe a few years down
the road we will do a real, full-size atlas.
Major Magic Triangles
White indicates glaciers. Temper. J\^ range between 50
below during winter to 32 (freezingf^njgrees Fahrenheit in
the summer. Rain/snowfall is about 50 to 250 mm.
Black indicates tundra. Vegetation consists of lichen, mosses,
algae, grass, and scrub (small shrubs and weeds). Temperatures
range from about 20 below zero to around freezing
in the winter to around 60 degree Fahrenheit in the summer.
Rainfall is about 100 to 500 mm.
Angled Lines indicate coniferous forests consisting of pine,
spruce and fir trees, grass and scrub. Temperatures range
from about 14 to freezing in the winter to 75 to 88 degrees
Fahrenheit in the summer. Average rainfall a year is about
200 to 800 mm.
Dots indicate mixed forests of coniferous and deciduous
trees, bushes, dog rose, flowers, and tall grass. Temperatures
range from about 20 to 40 degrees in the winter to 75 to 92
degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. Average rainfall a year is
about 500 to 1200 mm.
Dark grey areas are subtropical and tropical forests. Temperatures
range from the 80's in the winter to the low hundreds
of degrees Fahrenheit in the summer (average 98 to 120 degrees).
Average rainfall a year is 1200 to 2000 mm.
Horizontal broken lines indicate plains/grasslands or
savannas. The American plains are tall grass, scrub and tiny
patches of scattered trees. It receives about 200 to 400 mm
of rain. The savanna and steppes of Mexico are also grasslands
with few trees, but receive less rainfall, about 100 to 300
mm, and experience short periods of drought. Average temperatures
range from about 50 to 75 degrees in the winter to
90 to 105 in the summer.
Stippled dots are deserts consisting of wind-swept, dried
earth or sand, stones and patches of cactus and scrub. Temperatures
range from freezing (at night) to the hundreds during
the day, throughout the year.
Thatched areas in South America are steppes. Steppes are
grasslands with few trees and minimal rainfall, about 100 to
200 mm, and experience long periods of drought. Average
temperatures range from about 60 to 80 degrees in the winter
to 90 to 105 in the summer.
