Calidar Kickstarter Updates
Greetings all. A few things have been going on during the past several days. First off, discount coupons offered as part of Dreams of Aerie 's Kickstarter didn't quite work as I'd expected, failing to accomplish two key goals:  the first was to allow multip...

Ahoy, airmen of Calidar! The system-agnostic game mechanics for Calidar just went online on DTRPG. The printed version should become available there in the coming weeks.

Greetings all,

Digital versions of the deck plans have been delivered to everyone, save for those whose e-mail addresses bounced (the latter have been notified of the issue). These deck plans will become available to the public from DTRPG in their printed format as soon as I'm done with fulfilling everyone's backer rewards. These files are meant as exclusive bonuses to Kickstarter backers. Please do not post them online or allow them to be downloaded on the internet or shared electronically with other people. You are entitled to print these maps for your personal use only.

Check for new Calidar releases at www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/5797/Calidar-Publishing

Thanks again for your support,
Bruce

Update on Calidar's Discount Coupons

After a long back-and-forth with DTRPG, the best solution for everyone to order printed books was to make the two private titles public, at least temporarily, until everyone can validate their access codes. In short, until further notice, CST1 & CST2 are now listed publicly so everyone can access them without further hassle.

Remember: these access codes are for printed books exclusively. They will not work if you try to use them for the associated PDFs. At this point, the difference between the printed and digital versions is minimal. Private mail me after you order any of the four past titles from DTRPG. I'll need your order and customer numbers, so I can send you the free PDFs associated with your purchases.

If you need to bundle items to save on shipping--forget the access codes. Just private mail me and we'll make special arrangements to make sure you get what you want, with the proper discounts, and bundled shipping costs.

Sorry for the delay and the extra hassle with this process.

Caldwen Colleges of Magic
In my endeavor to flesh out the various colleges of Caldwen, it became necessary to define what their general disciplines were. For this, I followed existing wisdom, so to speak. I didn't like the original definitions I found, however. They seemed imprecise...

Caldwen's Wizard Towers
Having completed all the details of Caldwen's climate zones , I followed up with brainstorming about what should go on the magiocracy's map. This process helps me coalesce/solidify in my mind key creative concepts behind designing a Gazetteer. I started out...

Climate in Caldwen
As I begin work on Calidar's next Gazetteer, this one for CAL2 (The Magocracy of Caldwen), I needed to double check the area's climate zones, since these should affect what vegetation and color ranges should be depicted on a geographical map. What was indic...
