Today I received in mail the poster maps :)
Terrific! That's actually faster than the books, even though they were mailed from the USA. Are they in good shape?

So, you still have a book in transit. Both books had been dispatched from the printer in the UK on the same day, so the other book can't be far behind.

Hi Bruce!

Thanks for checking in! :) I got the books about a week ago, but have been too busy to post about it due to travels. The maps got some slight dents near the edges in the mail, but they were very minor. Just mentioning it for the sake of future releases which I also will most definitely support!

Thanks for the great work from both you and Thorf on this!

-Very happy Admiral Havard ;)

Glad to hear you got the box. Its tracking number does not show it was delivered (thus my asking), so I'm now assuming the postmaster failed to registered it as delivered.

It looks great, and I didn't realise there was so much content!

Hurrah!

As regards contents -- I may not be able to compete easily with the big publishers in terms of pricing, but I try to make up by providing more content per page. :cool:

DTRPG's summer sales are almost over. For those of you who are still on the sidelines, the best way to get started with #Calidar is the PDF or the Book Bundle. These are great values and a good way to catch up. Check this out!

For whatever reason, the printer sent books out piecemeal. So if you got one book, the other(s) isn't(aren't) far behind.

Received my books (Eastern Canada) about a month ago, but only go to read them today (on medical leave for a month (post-surgery) so loads of reading time).

I'm almost done reading it (down to the last chapter) and I really enjoy it. It's an interesting twist on the Magiocracy and I enjoy the inclusion of the Shatim as a new race. The Colleges presents an interesting approach to learning spells and do encourage magic-users to travel the nation's provinces to learn new spells and develop their skills.

Thanks for the feedback. I hope the chapter on the four circles and the various colleges of magic wasn't too confusing. It is a bit dense. I had fun writing up the shatim as a mysterious race. I had a look at the demonic PC race in 5e (the name escapes me right at this moment), and didn't like the way it was set. Just my taste, so I followed an entirely different route in CAL2/PG2.

Hope you're feeling better.

It is indeed a bit dense, but I think I got the bulk of it (and with a bit of experimenting for the first mage or two should clear it out). Ultimately the character will end up with degrees in different level for each school depending on how they proceed in their learning path, trying to achieve at least the 2nd circle in all to progress further, unless they specialize. And nothing prevent them to come back later on to acquire higher learning.

The Shatim do feel different than the Tiefling despite filing a similar niche in the world. At least with the Shatim we have a clear origin and the all the "bagagges" that comes with it, making the view the rest of the nation have of them, quite logical.

Oh yes, already am. Quite active around the house, despite occasionaly needing help from my daughter of my spouse for a few task I'm still limited in.

Looks like you got the gist of those circles. Great! Feel free to fudge all this as needed. Lemme know how the game goes in this regard.

Glad to read you're getting better and earning some mobility!
