Kurt Hills Atlas

Watermarked PDF

The Kúrt Hills Atlas is a complete campaign setting for the Kúrt Hills region of the Empire of Tsolyánu, from M.A.R. Barker's World of Tékumel! Usable with our own Béthorm: Plane of Tékumel RPG or with any Tékumel-based game.

This book contains a vast wealth of adventure hooks, in the form of evocative descriptions of features within the Kúrt Hills region, as shown on our poster-sized map (available separately). The map also appears within the book as a series of large 100 Tsán (82.6 mile) hexes with accompanying descriptions. This book also includes a version of the contents separately published as the Katalal Area Map & Gazeteer.

Check out our full line of Béthorm: Plane of Tékumel products HERE and on our website.

More official source material is available at M.A.R. Barker's World of Tékumel!

I have the same problem - where can we get a copy of the map on the back page?

Why is the PDF missing the back cover of the paperback edition, the cover with the color large scale map printed on it?

Without that the contents are compromised quite badly.

Makes no sense.

That's a good steer. Thanks. I also found map, and I have the hardcopy anyway but it's a bit of an unforgivable flub. The whole book is basically a detailed key to the back cover. 8oD

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.
