The map persperctive in World of Xeen makes the game more difficult since you cant tell exactly where you are.
Is there an overview map in game or perhaps an image available somewhere?
In case you didn't know this already, you can also view the map in-game by pressing "M". Only areas you explored. But that tells you exactly where you are.
Actually, I believe it only lets you see areas you've explored with at least one character with the Cartographer skill in the party.
Most players won't notice this because Sorcerers start with this skill. However:
* If you try playing without a Sorcerer, you won't have this skill at the start. Fortunately, somebody in the starting towns (Vertigo and Castleview) will teach this skill for a cheap price (IIRC), so it's generally not much of an issue.
* There is at least one event that will result in a character losing skills; triggering that event could cause you to end up not having this skill (but you can relearn it, fortunately). (If your thought is to reload immediately after triggering this event, I should point out that the event also has a beneficial effect, so you *might* want to keep the effect.)
