    Quote from Ratatoskr: “I had a great experience at GenCon 2018, played in two of the shard rpg sessions, The Lonely Inn and the Voracious Pack. ” Hey there Ratatoskr!!! I'm so glad you were able to join us at Gen Con in two of our play-sessions! Let us know if you end up running or playing in further games now that you've had a taste of Shard! We always like to hear folks having continuing adventure in our world. Scottie

    Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “Thanks, I should tell you I am straight up TERRIBLE at math so I think I would have to ask someone else about that, I remember the vulture template and how Old Wold Vultures had no sense of smell thus for them tracking scent was removed ” That's correct... And though we tried to provide such details for all the different species when possible (plus alternatives when some sub-species had such traits while others didn't), we often made choices to leave such detai…

    Quote from Ednoria: “It was great getting to talk to you guys at GenCon! I'm looking forward to all the cool new stuff you're working on! Best, Diane ” Yes indeed! I must echo the sentiments of my cohorts here by saying that it was absolutely wonderful to see so many folks, like yourself, come greet us at our table at Gen Con! We had a fantastic time in general, but it was made even more beautiful and touching by the number of folks who showed up to say "hello" and to express their continuing su…

  • I mentioned it at our game just the other evening, but I'll mention it here too...I really love how this has turned out so far!!!

  • Quote from iceage: “Been awhile since i posted. I cant wait to see this new book. It really makes me want to play more games just thinking about it. ” I'm so glad you're still with us!!! We got our new book published and in our hands just in time to go to Gen Con recently to sell the first copies!!! Hopefully you had the chance to get your hands on one! If not, they are available now through our publisher Studio 2! Scottie

    Scott Jones - - SHARD Magic

    Post

    That's an excellent question! Magic in Shard, as you may have discovered, comes in four general categories; the arts of the Seer, the arts of the Healer, the arts of the Summoner, and the arts of the Endower. It is within the last of these categories that you will find the Ritual and Disciplines you seek! "Endowment" is a fairly broad category that includes rituals that allow the creation and manipulation of Wards, rituals that allow the manipulation of weather effects, and rituals that let you …

    I agree! I love where the adventure discussion could go... And, of course, I find mummies and the lore surrounding them fascinating... There are actually areas of Dárdünah where mummies of that kind could be found... From a well-known standpoint, it is understood by most jánah who have studied cultures in the various countries that in the sand-swept Amin of Amnol, across the river from its capitol city of Nar-Harix, there lay a mighty necropolis very much like the Valley of Kings here on Earth. …

    Hello all! After these many years it's time, once again, for Shard Studios to make a good showing of itself at #GenCon2018! For those of you heading to Gen Con this year, please drop by our table in the Studio2 booth (booths #1929 and 2029) This year Shard will be running five different gaming events at Gen Con! We're running them for free, so the only cost is the basic $4 Gen Con event ticket price. Check out all the details for each of the gaming events in the Shard-specific section of the Gen…

  • Thank You for Smoking

    Scott Jones - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    The Zoics depicted smoking in the Animal Templates were shown doing so merely as a random gesture from our artist Jay French... It is funny that they are both amphibians of some kind, though... Heh! But Griffin is essentially correct, for the most part, smoking is merely a social habit picked up just as it might have been picked up by any race in most fantasy settings... When handling it in the game as a GM, I would indicate that players might only suffer from the effects of being around "too mu…

  • Retractable claws

    Scott Jones - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    That's an excellent question! For the sake of the various feline Zoic races in Shard, it should certainly be assumed that, if a particular type of cat has the ability to retract its claws on Earth as a species, then the Zooic based on that particular cat as a Zoic in Shard can as well... For instance, a tiger Zoic would be able to retract and extend her claws, while a cheetah Zoic would not, since cheetahs on Earth cannot retract their claws, and have claws that are always exposed, much like can…

  • Hello and welcome to SHARD! I'm so glad you've had a chance to become a fan of the world we've created! Check out the various forum categories, familiarize yourself with their content, and feel free to ask us anything about our game and its fiction you'd like! Scottie

  • It's great to hear you're looking forward to seeing more fiction and lore for the world! As we begin to get into the "meat" of the edits for the "World Guide", I'll be sharing tidbits of things like that here on the forums, just like I did when we were working on the recent "Magic and Martial Arts" volume... Stay tuned!

  • Hello all! This issue has now been solved, and folks visiting our forums can now create new accounts! Thanks for your patience. We'll be removing this announcement shortly. Scottie
