Titan is the fantasy world which serves as the setting for the majority of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy and Sorcery! gamebooks and novels. The title contains "backstory on...the villains and NPC's" found throughout the Fighting Fantasy series.[1]

Summary[edit]

The fictional world of Titan is the setting for the majority of the Fighting Fantasy titles. There are three main continents (Allansia; Khul and the "Old World") and other remote locations such as the Isles of the Dawn and Arrowhead Islands.

Allansia is apparently the largest continent and the setting for many of the earliest Fighting Fantasy titles. The city-state of Port Blacksand (City of Thieves), town of Fang (Deathtrap Dungeon) and the Icefinger Mountains (Caverns of the Snow Witch) are all located in Allansia.[2] The majority of the Fighting Fantasy books are set in Allansia.

West of Allansia lies the "Old World" continent. The Old World is a largely civilized land mass which escaped the cataclysmic wars that devastated the other continents of Titan. It is divided into several kingdoms. The eastern land of Kakhabad is the setting for the Sorcery! series.[3]

Khul is a continent to the south of the other two. It is named "the Dark Continent", both due to its remoteness from the other continents and the dark blackish colour of its earth and rocks.[4] Central Khul is dominated by the Wastes of Chaos, a huge internal desert rife with mutants and monsters.[5]
