|Fang's Finest Emporium|
|Launched||2002 last updated August 19 2005|
The discussions on Rebuilding Titan, and subsequently Titan Rebuilding, addressed many issues, tackled many inconsistencies and often displayed a deep appreciation of the Fighting Fantasy canon. They also enticed from Ken Beuden the re-emergence of that part of him that as a little boy would draw maps of Allansia.
Nedueb’s first foray was a Theology Encyclopaedia fusing his passion for Greek mythology with that for Fighting Fantasy. This indulgence of his creative side, that was largely left to sit in the corner of his mind in his day job, led further. He created a map of eastern Allansia for Dave Holt who incorporated it into his map of Allansia. He went on to try to map Sword of the Samurai, and created a huge map in Adobe Photoshop of Hachiman. He then decided to expand this to Khul, thinking it would be a small exercise. He was wrong.
He then started Fang’s Finest Emporium, initially to showcase the maps. The site became an attempt at being another repository of Fighting Fantasy information, whilst staying in the character of a Fang-based shop-owner (called "Enkyn"). Beuden found that by the time he had mapped Khul, he had largely catalogued the Khulian books. Soon he was creating the Khulian Encyclopaedia which found its home on the Emporium. There were many other items that Nedueb wished to open up to the world and these found their way to the Emporium.
It was designed to be an accessible repository of Fighting Fantasy information, all presented form an in-world perspective by the ever present owner of the Emporium, Enkyn. Its in-world name was "Enkyn's Eclectic Emporium".
