CAL2 Upper City District
Publisher: Calidar PublishingThis 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 upper 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 560’ across and 340’ tall, five city blocks make up this part of Arcanial, including the lord high’s palace at the center surrounded by four pie-shaped quarters. Massive chains anchor together the Upper District and four armed redoubts. Their metal links are coated with alchemical oil that is exceedingly slippery, repelling ice and snow during the cold season, nests, bird droppings, and intruders unwisely walking across. More than a hundred feet away on the perimeter, the small fortifications pull the city blocks outward to keep them in place, while slowly rotating clockwise. Wooden bridges connecting the four quarters can stretch and warp to withstand slight shifts among the levitating sections. The four quarters’ outer rim terraces lie 80ft below those nearest the center. The palace garden on the loftiest terrace lies another 40ft higher than the surrounding city blocks. Beneath free-standing buildings on the Upper District, the four quarters and the palace include as many as 14 lower floors, with street-like hallways, transversal crossways, and staircases.”
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!Price: $4.95
