CAL2 Valley of Arafor
Publisher: Calidar PublishingThis poster map is for use with CAL2 Calidar “On Wings of Darkness,” a 132 pg. gazetteer describing the Magiocracy of Caldwen.
This 12″ x 18″ poster map represents the Valley of Arafor, a closeup view of the region at the heart of Caldwen. It is rendered in classical hex grid format for players, at a 2 mile per hex scale. The main map in 10 mile per hex style, Caldwen Players’ Map, is available separately.Excerpt from the Gazetteer: “The Ice Spine isthmus links Caldwen to Nordheim, largely impassable save for mule paths perched on cliffs overlooking fjord-like shores. Mountain wilderness covers a great deal of the realm, separating narrow coastal plains from the great Valley of Arafor in the center. The richest and most fertile region rings the Lake of Whispers in the south. The vast majority of the population resides along an axis including Anzael, Incubael, Arcanial, and Abyzael. Protected by the magiocracy’s laws, large, uninhabited forests often lie between settled lands and mountain foothills, as if they were meant as natural barriers. One may wonder whether they keep commoners away from wizardly estates in the highlands, or if they hide something else entirely.”
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 associated 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
