The Next Penny Arcade RPG Has A Killer World Map

Gotta love the world map, that humble little collection of icons that offers up a treasure trove of discoveries and possibilities. Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4, out this spring, has a killer, old-school-styled world map that I really want to dig into. I saw the upcoming RPG at PAX East this weekend and shot some video that you can see up top.



I loved Rain-Slick Precipice 3, and can't wait for this next installment. I never played episodes 1 or 2, though; I know they're not plot-necessary, but should I play them anyway? Are they as good as Zeboyd's take on the series?
