CAL2 Lower City District

12" x 18" Small Poster(s)

This poster map is for use with CAL2 Calidar "On Wings of Darkness," a 132 pg. gazetteer describing a magiocracy.

This 12" x 18" poster map represents the lower district of the magiocracy's capital city. The entire urban center's three main districts levitate above a sprawling slum known as Port Arcana.

Excerpt from the Gazetteer: "Some 800' across and 380' tall, the Lower District forms the bottom tier of the flying city. This part of town remains in the shadow of the Middle District. The sun rarely shines within its center. Structures nearest the perimeter are highest, gradually getting lower near the middle. Water cascading from the Middle District pours into six pools located at the center, before draining out into Port Arcana's retaining pond. The pools are 8' deep. Sturdy hemp lines and rope bridges tether the Lower District's many wooden structures together. Chains anchor three armed redoubts to the whole assemblage. Built entirely of wood, creaks and groans are a permanent feature of this neighborhood as its tethers strain at the whims of the winds. Slowly bobbing and swaying, it completes a full clockwise rotation in about 40mn. (...) Teleporters are rare; structures feature instead narrow corridors, tight-fitting spiral stairways, and ladders, as well as foot- and handholds on the outside walls. Locals are used to the district perilous conditions, which may well trigger fear of heights among outsiders."

Why do I need this? Although the collection of 7 poster maps isn't absolutely indispensable to enjoy the gazetteer, they are invaluable when kept within reach, while reading the core reference guide and PG2, its assoctaed players guide. Having these maps handy makes all the difference when actually running the game, as they provide convenient handouts. Imagine trying to describe this city to players verbally, without handouts. Good luck!

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.
