CAL1 Soltan Ephemeris

CAL1 Soltan Ephemeris

12" x 18" Small Poster(s)

This poster is for use with CAL1 Calidar "In Stranger Skies," a 132 pg. gazetteer describing the world of Calidar and the Kingdom of Meryath.

This 12" x 18" poster displays the planets and moons forming the center point of Calidar's Universe: Soltan's Ephemeris. Soltan is the sun around which three worlds and their moons gravitate. Though not to scale, the image shows the general appearance and relative sizes of the three planet and their moons. It is a beautiful rendition by Cartographer Thorfinn Tait. The landscape-format image is printed on thick, semi-gloss paper stock and folded vertically across the center. It is mailed in a bubble-lined padded mailer, usually with stiff cardboard sheets included to prevent bending or folding.

Excerpt from the Gazetteer: "The second and largest planet from Soltan is roughly comparable to our Earth, as regards its size (about 27,000 miles in its circumference, or 43,200 km) and its seasons. It travels around Soltan in 360 days. Its land masses benefit from a variety of terrain separated by large seas covering slightly less than two-thirds of the surface. From a distance, this planet appears mostly blue, marbled with green and brown. Three inhabited satellites gravitate nearby: Alorea, Kragdûr, and Munaan. The first two are closest and remain on opposite sides of their mother world, taking twenty-eight Calidaran days to travel around it. Munaan lies farther out and completes its orbit in forty-two days. All three moons fully rotate in twenty-four Calidaran hours."

Why do I need this? don't, but why wouldn't you acquire it anyway, since it is so cool? The author mounted this poster on the outside of his game master's screen. It looks great and perfectly appropriate when running a spacefaring campaign game focused on skyships, Calidar's main theme.

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.
