Atlas Keléstia TRZN B2 Âlwin Published

#1 Post by Fastred » Mon Sep 11, 2017 2:22 pm

The Land Awakens...

Keléstia Productions are pleased to announce the publication of Atlas Keléstia #47.

This issue describes map square B2 (Âlwin) on the Emélrenè map. It is our most complex Atlas Keléstia issue yet - the map index is 50 pages long, and includes data for more than 420 entries.

This issue of Atlas Keléstia covers the Kingdom of Emélrenè's Âlwìna Shire and a number of surrounding areas. Âlwìna Shire is Emélrenè’s most populous and lies at the heart of the kingdom. Âlwin city is the second largest urban centre of the realm and jealously guards its rights and privileges. The ancient castle of Modána and thirteen keeps are also found in this area.

Most of the great clans of the realm hold lands here. Three of the great clans with seats in the region are in danger of ‘extinction’ due to small sizes, but in all cases, there are sub-clans with an interest in the outcome. The region is also the home of one of the clans descended from the old royal house, with associated tensions.

Other ancient tensions continue in the Môrtellyn Hundred, a region inhabited by clans with links to the area’s dark past. Nearby in the Léngardhel hills, brigandage is a growing problem, drawn by the gem mining in the region.

But most alarming is the ‘awakening’ of almost all of the Ethereal Zones (Laellyn) in the region, and the growing number of strange sightings, incidents and creatures in the area. The Émhlè rangers and the Laránian Order of the Lion Banner are both increasingly stretched to respond to these issues.

For me, one of the things that I like about Kelestia Productions publishing format is that if I want a 'treeware' version, I can always print it out myself.

You do realize that it would be substantially more expensive to produce, right? What would you be willing to pay for a 50+ page document?

I like these just fine the way they are.

Living on the opposite side of the planet to where Harnmaster canon material of all flavours is produced, PDF is just fine with me. Shipping costs are crippling.

Indeed, I have to echo the print yourself crowd.

Right now a color laser printer in the US can be had for about $250. This is a far cry from the $1000 I paid for my first one. Indeed, I bought my latest because the new printer cost $150 less than replacing the four toner cartridges of my old one.

Now, if you have an Inkjet, well then don't go there. That is not economical. But a laser printer is another story.

I've found shipping from the states to the UK surprisingly affordable. I don't know for cost. Say $30?

Well, yeah. New York City to London = 2460 miles. Los Angeles to Sydney = 7500 miles. And another 2500 miles from Sydney to Perth.

And a flight every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day.

And a couple of direct flights a day (OK, maybe a few flights) with a few more bouncing through one or two more stops...

And since those uppity Sand Gropers need to be kept in their place, we only send across the mail once a week...by train.

And you consider that a large distance?

The state in which I live covers a land area of 1,021,626 square miles. A lot of it is desert. The vast emptiness is pretty astonishing.

Heh, you live in Texas. My friend from Montana would consider that a reasonable drive to go to dinner.

In Massachusetts however, that's absurd. We consider anything beyond 30 miles a hardship. It's all relative. :lol:

Ah, cute little Montana. That state would fit into Western Australia three times.

In this country yes. That's a six hour drive in good conditions. More like eight. We're build up over here. Consider all that way to be driving through suburbia. I've visited the states several times, it's different.

Agreed. Lucky for me work has a nice sized colour printer :angel:

Maybe we should ask customs while the high warfage fees applied to parcels :twisted: and then when they rebuke, ask them to justify the cost to send back to Kelestia
