  • At some point I'm hoping to have the time to upload either the outlines for, or simple synopses for, the games that I have run, potentially even presenting them episode by episode as Ednoria has done... If I end up getting that going at some point, I'll share links to that stuff here! Scottie

  • Quote from Hyboran: “I got a picture with them and in turn they gave me a flyer which talks about the game. ” Oh yes! As Mulefoot mentioned above, PLEASE post that photo of you meeting with our friendly lion and fox! I would have been manning the booth at the time, so I missed out on all that fun! Feel free to share that photo right here! Scottie

    Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “Reading the sections on Janah Mutations and thinking about my own character Si'Ni being a High Functioning Autistic/Asperger's Syndrome I kind of just realized are instances of Janah born acting more animalistically a kind of Janah specific Autism, could high functioning ones like Si'Ni be considered 'borderline' cases constantly viewed with suspicion because of their inability to grasp certain social concepts? ” You could certainly play a character that way. I…

    Quote from Zashta: “Wow this is above and beyond what I expected when I asked this question and I cannot thank you enough for your insight and assistance in this matter. This is incredibly helpful and you have gone above and beyond in how descriptive you are in your medicines and poisons. You are doing the Devahs work here and once again thank you so very much for your help! ” Certainly! My pleasure! Hopefully the final versions of all this are even more impressive and useful!

    Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “Taking a closer look at each individual ritual for the four different elements I loved how each Element has a different personality ascribed to it how the each one has different effects on the environment and how each one likes a different stat characteristic in imagining all these scenarios in my head I couldn't help wondering if Aquatic Jenu Sea Turtles, Frogs, Otters, Seals/Sea Lions/Walruses are more inclined to work with water elementals...You could also a…

  • Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “Is a Grown-Up Version of Sadaak the Binturong musician who appears in the fiction before the New Templates Chapter of Magic and Martial Arts? I ask because I was thinking of placing that particular Binturong in my fanfiction ” Yes! That's him exactly! That's one of Mulefoot's (my business partner's) personal characters he created, which he runs as the child version even now in the campaign I run once a month for him and his friends... They were all part of a la…

  • There most likely wouldn't be any tales about mortals 'beating up" one of the Devah, or anything like that... But certainly, I can imagine the Partakám having some tale or so about some particularly crafty jánah playing a trick on, or making a fool of, one Devah or another in that ancient time when the Devah are said to have walked upon the face of Dárdünah... Of course, you can bet that those tales would most like be cautionary ones... For example, there might me a story about a jánah who was c…

    Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “Does kind of make me wonder what would be the point of Valets even existing if Honor Guards seem to be so much better...Like are Valets for those who can't afford Honor Guards? The Discount Body Guards? ” Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “Did I just ask a stupid question? ” Not at all! It's questions like these that show you are giving thought to how things work in the world... And as Ednoria said above, the reason why one person might use a Valet versus an Ho…

  • Quote from Otakun: “Scott, I wasn't sure where to post on the forums. I met you at Fur con, you said to inquire here about the art book. I am ordering a couple more of the rulebooks, I have a lot of people here who are excited to play. I am so glad I met you all! ” Hey there Otakun, and thanks for joining us here on the Shard forums! It was great to meet you as Further Confusion! It's awesome that you have found folks in your area that are excited to start playing Shard! And thanks SO MUCH for g…

  • Quote from Mruf: “Ave! I saw that shipping to Poland is, per one item, only 2,5 greens, or 5 (flat rate). Is such a small value possible? That will be incredibly lovely :)))) I'll take out all commodities. ” That's fantastic news, Mruf!!! I don't set our publisher's shipping prices, so its GREAT to hear that they have set their rates in a way that's good for you! Enjoy! Scottie

  • Hello and greetings to you all!!!

    Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “Once again I must emphasize that I'm glad this time the picture is related to the fiction, in the first book the Fiction in the magic chapter concerns a ram and a turtledove but the picture is that of a mandrill...What's up with that? ” Heh! I'm glad you like the match-up of images to fictional content this time... It was intentional for exactly the reasons you describe... In the Basic Compendium, we knew we wanted some cool chapter-head images, and those had b…

  • Awesome! And welcome to the forum!!! Yeah, that was an exceptionally-amazing demo you guys played.... I know Griffin wishes he could have brought home your group's type of luck to use as his own! Let us know if you have any questions,....and....great to hear from you! Scottie

  • Hey there! Scott here, one of the co-creators! I may be able to answer some of your questions, though Griffin is correct indicating that we have yet to develop some Earth animals like cetaceans, cephalopods, and other such "consigned to the sea" kind of creatures... I've had other fans of the game ask it were possible that the original ark-ship of the two scientists might have had a purely oceanic pod segment that might have detached and landed on a separate shard of the world... To that we say …

  • Hello there, Hyboran! And WELCOME to the forum! I'm betting you saw a well-dressed lion and fox gentleman! It's great that you are getting back into RPGs... They were a passion of mine when I was younger, and they have remained an amazing outlet of creativity for me ever since! If you have any questions about our game, please let us know! We love discussions here, because they often mention things of interest to many of our players... Feel free to ask away!

  • Hey there! Sure! Such a restriction certainly could be a hereditary thing, especially if you weave it into your character's history for the sake of role-play! I'm not sure we have any factors of how "common" it is in the world, because each GM will run their campaign differently. But my short answer would be, such restrictions should be as common as the GM would like to create cool interactions scenes... Mulefoot will be chiming in a bit later with some cool ideas he has concerning such interact…

    Hey there Zashta! Scottie here Griffin gave you a great basic understanding about how the use of things like Medical Alchemy will eventually be dealt with in the World Guide! I'm going to go one step further, and actually provide you and the other forum-goers with a few PDFs of the currently unedited version we're already working on for it! Attached here are the chapters pertaining to the Medical Arts, Poisons, and the Physiology of the Zoics (called "Animorphs" in this earlier version)... These…

    That's fantastic! Hopefully you'll have the chance to enjoy not just the main sections of the book, but also all the little extra fictional (and functional) tidbits we added in here and there! It's great to see folks enjoying the new Animal Templates, though... We had someone from a new group here in town so excited that she was able to play a puffin! You have a great holiday season, and a Happy New Year! Scottie
