Kingdom of Kaldor

Watermarked PDF

Kaldor is a land-locked feudal kingdom in eastern Hârn. Since its founding more than 500 years ago, external threats have been minimal but internal strife has been common. The current dynasty, Clan Elendsa, has sought to uphold the traditional principles of feudalism, chivalry, and royal justice. King Miginath Elendsa is popular with the common people because he has kept the kingdom prosperous and at peace.

King Miginath is in poor health and has never married, leaving the succession a matter of contention between three bastard sons and a score of nieces and nephews. Intermarriage with other noble clans and the granting of royal offices in exchange for concessions has created a complicated web of alliances that may discourage a civil war when the king dies. While he lives, the factions plot and scheme for advantages.

Much of the land claimed by Kaldor is controlled by tribal nations, some peaceful, others decidedly less so. The kingdom maintains two standing armies on the marches, but relations with the tribes are not always warlike. A few hardy miners, trappers, and explorers venture in the wilderness, and tribesmen are a common sight in border settlements.

The capital, Tashal, is an important economic hub. Caravans converge here from all corners of Hârn: from Orbaal down the Fur Road, from Azadmere along the Silver Way, from Thay and the Lythian continent via the Genin Trail, and from western Hârn by the Salt Route.

The Kingdom of Kaldor module is supplemented by other Columbia Games publications, including keeps, castles, and adventure sites, and provides a variety of opportunities for adventure.

What's the scale of hexes on the political map?

I believe each hex is 1 Harnic League (2.5 miles) as each hex on the world map is 5 Harnic Leagues (12 miles).

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.
