This is a land unlike any other - and a land that's waiting for you.

Although usable in any campaign, this tome is especially suited for Dungeons & Dragons adventures in the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting - a realistic, dynamic world where complex political alliances mix with marauding bands of humanoids, and medieval technology and culture come face to face with magic and the fantastic. Whatever type of adventure you seek, you can find it here.

This Kingdoms of Kalamar supplement is intended for use by D&D players and Dungeon Masters (DMs) alike. To use this accessory in a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, you need a copy of the D&D Player's Handbook, the Dungeon Master's Guide and the Monster Manual. You can also find further detail on other lands within the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting in the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting sourcebook, the Kingdoms of Kalamar Player's Primer, or any of our other fine supplements and adventures.

I can't officially rate this pdf because I didn't buy it here, but I own the book and it's fantastic! Obviously, if you use anything from the Kalamar setting, this will add to your world. But I just liked it as a really well developed medieval Africa-like continent that has everything from nomads and hunter-gatherers to complex bureaucratic empires. D&D, Pathfinder or whatever world you run, Svimohzia is full of great ideas for making your world richer and more diverse.

I must say that I find it weird that Kenzer keeps publishing material for what is the oficial setting of it´s own fantasy system, Hack Master, not for said system but as a 3rd party for D&D. I´m finding it hard to bet on HM when not even it´s publishers seem to...

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
