MGP1 Xibalba


The Great Wheel cosmology is not the only cosmology, and the heavens and hells that it contains are not the only ones that exist.

Xibalba is the hell of the Maztican Cosmology, the lawful evil plane of the Great Pyramid.  In it, there is a great city with rivers of blood, pus and scorpions and a great ball game where its terrible fiends challenge unsuspecting mortals with the only desire to humiliate them and murder them in horrific ways.

So why would any mortal being want to travel to Xibalba?  Well, its flowers, while rare, are said to have amazing powers.  Some diseases, in fact, can only be stopped by such rare flaura.  

The Great Pyramid cosmology is tagged with the letters MGP and the introductory product can be found here at MGP0 The Great Pyramid.  You can find all of the Maztica Alive! products at TWC1 The Maztica Campaign Guide.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
