  1. The map in the PDF is 72 dpi, just like your image. IMO, it's NOT ok for a computer screen, since you can barely read the placenames on it. However, I fear that posting a higher resolution scan from the paper copy would be against Chaosium's copyright. I wouldn't suggest anyone to do it without their written permission.
  2. Yes, I can confirm that the PDF on sale at Drivethrurpg.com, or on Chaosium's own webstore, contains two pages (one for North and one for South) with the detailed map, which is exactly the one Atgxtg posted above. Although, I must say that scan resolution is not that high, and the typeface size used in the map is really small, so it's not the best reading experience on a PC screen: as soon as you start zooming in to read the tiny writings, letters become pixelated. Don't know what happens when you try to print this one; I suspect that you'd be better served by the original map on paper (I own it, but cannot access it at the moment). The map is on the two last pages of the PDF file. In the original book, it was glued to the inside back cover.
  3. You mean, a bit like this document by Scruffygrognard? 🙂
  4. @SirGarethBeaumains These news are really intriguing! Can you tell us more without infringing on some NDA? I've been running KAP on and off for 15 years now, and Beaumains remains my Grail, never managed to obtain a copy...
  5. @Darkloutre, please understand that sharing published material is illegal, and you are asking precisely that. @Darkloutre, le partage de matériel publié est illégal, et vous demandez exactement cela.
  6. I am sure that the English version of BoK does not include any scenario, just 2 pages of instructions to build scenarios. I have the book before me in this moment. I am also almost sure that the name "Thankhad" is never mentioned in any of the English-language books published over the years. I did an automatic's word search on the PFDs of all the books, and found nothing. Edit: By the way, @Crabus, what is the title of this scenario? I've never heard of it.
  7. Well, I was just hoping you, and any other (BoS) authors were at work on it! Thanks for the info!
  8. You're working on The North right now, am I right? If not, you should be...
  9. I've downloaded and am already using them, they are gorgeous! Thanks! Can we have more of these? Just a few? :-)
  10. Regarding the correspondences between old and new names, some long lists can be found in this thread in the old Nocturnal forum: https://greathall.chaosium.com/Pendragon Forum Archive/index.php/t-2696.html Hope it's useful!
  11. If I remember correctly, dividing the GPC and/or the KAP rulebook up into 4 different era books was another one of those projects Greg had been working on for years. I was part of his "household knights" group for contributing to projects, and I've seen files on these changes at least since 2015. This didn't stop him from producing the 5.2 edition! Personally, given the situation and the passing away of Greg, I think that KAP couldn't be in better hands. The people at Chaosium (and David Larkins in particular) have the utmost respect for Greg's work and gaming legacy, and are also very good at making games (personal opinion again!).
  12. Beautiful! I can't wait to have it in my grubby hands... And these pictures make me even more eager!
  13. Seems really intriguing! My compliments to your player. Maybe, you could pass to him this information: here in Italy it is rather difficult to buy the GN! Apple iBooks: not available, at least outside the USA-Canada; iTunes App Store: not available, at least outside the USA-Canada; Comixology: not available; B&N Nook: available, but not sold outside the USA-Canada; Anazon Kindle: finally, I manged to buy it from Amazon. Now guess which was the last option I tried???? 😆
  14. I'd definitely LOVE to see it published.
  15. Thanks Ringan for saving these materials! I for one would be grateful if you shared the files here. Maybe the Forum administrators could find a more "suitable" accommodation for them, possibly in the Great Hall (https://greathall.chaosium.com/)?
