MZS2 The Cosmology of Maztica


The cosmology of Faerûn is well known to be the home of the gods, celestials, fiends and countless others. Nestled among these endless planes of existence is the Great Pyramid and the seventeen tenemos (regions of the Outer Planes) which serve as the final reward...or punishment, for the souls of the Maztican dead.

Welcome to the Great Pyramid, where the souls of the inhabitants of Maztica are ushered into the afterlife by the skeletal beings known as zizimime. The temenos consist of heavens that would delight a solar and hells that would disturb the cruelest of pit fiends. This product is an update to what was originally called the MPG series. It includes both the original Great Pyramid book and Xibalba (updated and expanded), but also adds a write up of the rainy heaven known as Tlalocan.

Future updates to this product might include additional temenos of the Great Pyramid.

Long time lurker, rare reviewer- my only issue with this long list of free and PWYW products is that I haven't made time to read all of them. The ones that I have are lovingly done, with production values equal to or approaching the big name professional stuff that we all know and love. I especially like the simple, evocative art. It looks like this title continues the trend and you can't beat the price! Worth the time to read also, and that's just what I'm about to do...

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.
