The Storms of Calethrax: A Campaign Setting


One thousand years ago, a cabal of wizards convened to perform a ritual to reshape the world into a paradise. In their hubris, they failed and destroyed Calethrax’s climate, dooming the world. Now the survivors live in constant fear, fleeing from powerful, arcane storms that ravage the lands.

The Storms of Calethrax is a unique campaign setting for D&D 5e, OSR, or any other fantasy-based RPG. Calethrax is a world ravaged by powerful arcane storms that destroy nearly everything in its path. Trees are few, supplies are limited, and only two cities are protected from the storms. Here's what you can expect from this book:

- A completely unique campaign setting
- Fifty detailed pages
- Three maps
- Five cities to explore
- Over fifteen factions, with needs, goals, possessions, and NPCs.
- Three brief planes of existence to explore
- Multiple pages of rules and tables for how to use the arcane Storms
- Rules for adventure hooks, dungeon creation, ruin creation, and more
- Rules for creating player characters in this world called Stormchasers
- And more!

Calethrax is a dangerous, post-apocalyptic world ravaged by sudden storms of a magical nature. Adventurers in this world are called Stormchasers due to their habit of following the storms and exploring the ancient ruins uncovered in the wake of destruction. This is a world of swords and spells, but you could easily add modern weaponry or SciFi elements to create a more strange and futuristic world.

This campaign setting is jam-packed with detail, easy-to-use tables, and designed to be simple to run a game in. Everything you need to know about a location should be right there; no flipping around in the book looking for something! We have also put great care into designing the world to be easily extensible or changed for your table. This book is merely a framework, an idea starter for you and your players to build upon. The details here-in should spark your imagination. The world of Calethrax is yours now.

PS. Our wonderful cover art was done by the artist Michal Kváč!

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.
