Black Industries' Guide to the Calixis Sector - Anyone got it?

Recommended Posts

I see it gets brought up on occasion but I figured I'd ask one last time before this forum goes to the archives.

 

Anyone got a link or the actual pdf BL made?

 

Not the Encyclopedia Calixis or the Calixis Sector Encyclopedia, the original pdf.

So here's what I found.

 

Basically the Lexicanum as usual is a heap of lies and heresy.

 

There isn't a pdf called "The Guide to the Calixis Sector:

 

That's what Black Industries called the sector page they had on their site with all the fan created information on it before FFG got the license.

 

When that got taken over FFG didn't copy all the information (likely rites issues) just the planet list.

 

Some fans got together and copied all the relevant planet information (stuff about government and inquisition stuff made it word for word into the core rulebook) and made "The Calixis Sector Encyclopedia"

 

That's only missing the information on Tranch, which I found using the wayback machine for www.blackindustries.com

 

tl;dr don't trust sources from Lexicanum. Ross Watson knows what he's talking about, and rpggeek has a really good summary of Dark Heresy 1st edition on it apparently.

He already has that one Jargal, that one isn't what ThenDoctor was looking for

As I understand last ThenDoctor's post, what he was looking for (BI pdf) doesn't exist at all - I gave the link for the file that I found just to be clear about what I have mentioned.

It actually is I just didn't know it at the time.

 

Black Library never released their own version of that information. "The Guide to the Calixis Sector" is just what they called the page on their website with all that information on it.

 

When FFG took over the line they didn't take all the planetary information, so fans got together and made their own pdf of it and released it as The Calixis Sector Encyclopedia.

 

I was unaware of this, and the Lexicanum misattributed the sourcing of it leading to further confusion.

 

 

Found it! On the drive unused since 2012... It looks like it's the thing you're talking about - fan-made compendium, but I haven't time to check it completely.

If you're still interested in it - there is the link.

 

Yeah I found it.

 

That's actually incomplete too. It's missing the entry on Tranch, you can find the BI site with the wayback machine for the internet archives and look for it there.

You are correct.

Useful, but not complete

It doesn't include OW materials, and short/minor references wasn't included in the top post from the comments, but otherwise I can't remember any serious omission

I'm getting very, very minute about the stuff I'm taking. There's references about this across all the lines, save as far as I've seen Black Crusade and Dark Heresy Second Edition. And there are very minor things getting thrown in as well.

No "serious" omission, but still not complete, and not too useful because I'm reading through them all anyways.
