  • Hello there BROTHER! I am so happy to see you here on the forum. I wondered if I would have the opportunity to get to know you better. I cannot tell you how excited I am to have you become a part of this game and our community. As a person of color it is always exciting to add more diversity to the gaming experience and encourage others from our rich culture to participate in the creativity which is the heart and soul of role playing games and activities. I am the fellow who was dressed as the b…

  • Wow! This was a tasty bit of information to share and I can think of many players who will be eager to put what you wrote into play as soon as they have the opportunity. It truly has been one of my greatest pleasures to work along side Scott Jones, Andrew Bowman and all the other people who have had a hand in helping this dream to become a reality. I can only hope that all those who have joined our role-playing family will have as much fun and excitement as we have enjoyed as they release their …

    Post

    I could certainly see that being the case in many different circumstances as well, considering that the Paksin of the west tend to favor, appreciate and even worship concepts, ideas and entities associated with the air while other nations have chosen differently. In the end we have left such considerations to the desires of the individual Game Masters and as such allow them to shape those behavioral tendencies for themselves. I would like to mention that in the pages of the up and coming WORLD G…

  • Thanks for the wonderful inquiry about aquatic based characters. We have included a number of Jenu which could exist equally well in water as well as on land and plan to offer more information in the up and coming WORLD GUIDE. We are currently considering to what degree we will offer the options of Dolphins, Whales and other such animals in the world of SHARD. It is our intention to give these special animals the consideration they deserve and provide fictional backgrounds which highlight the un…

  • The Journey Chant

    griffin - - Inspirational Art and Fiction

    Post

    Thank you for putting some of our content out in your material, please be sure to include a reference as to where the chant can be found in its original form in any material that it is displayed with in. A simple sentence giving credit to the game and a link to Shard Studios available at Shard Studios P.O. Box 170144 Austin TX. 78717 or some similar act would be fantastic and greatly appreciated. That way those who are interested in it may know where to find other fiction which they may also enj…

  • Medical Alchemy

    griffin - - Basic Compendium Discussion

    Post

    This is a most excellent question and I will say that you are on the right track. Medical Alchemy can indeed be used as a complementary skill to dress wound and or surgery, in that the substances the healer will be creating can affect the Dice the Healer is able to use when attempting to use Dress Wound skills. I will go into detail on the details of what would be required in order to use it effectively. The exact way will be described below. The first thing to consider is whether the character …

  • Dardunah Desserts?

    griffin - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    The world of Dardunah has many of the same things you would find here on earth specifically including the rare delicacies which are found in other cultures other than western nations. In my own game I like to combine aspects of different fruit and vegetables found upon the planet earth to fill in the gaps when I wish to introduce the players to unique role play scenes. One way to do this is in your own mind while another way is to keep a list of a variety of fruit, colors and vegetables and comb…

  • Tell me some Campaign Stories

    griffin - - General Discussion

    Post

    I can say that the hunger you feel will be satisfied in the up and coming World Guide which has fantastic stories and fiction explaining many of the everyday events upon the world of the false dawn. It will even contain fiction from the perspective of different nations explaining how they feel and see the other nations of the world, not to mention give insight about how trade is accomplished.... In time we will be presenting short run adventures which are similar to mini modules for our devoted …

  • Fish in Dardunah

    griffin - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    This is an interesting question as well, and I will answer it by saying that when the Great Mother and Father came to the world of SHARD with all of their many children in tow, they found many lifeforms already in existence upon the strange new world. Some of the lifeforms seemed similar to creatures they had encountered upon the original home world while others were incredibly unique. The Basic Compendium includes but a fraction of the actual life upon the incredibly diverse world of the false …

  • This is a great question and one which will be elaborated upon in much greater detail in the pages of the up and coming World Guide. However since you have brought this question to the forum I will answer offer as much information as I can with out spoiling the surprises contained within the next book. In the game of Shard assume that the major races, which I will call the Great Races.... Paksin, Vajrah, and Sarpah all tend to mate with in the many different related sub- species contained within…

  • Life as Valet

    griffin - - SHARD Combat

    Post

    The latest response is correct and indeed did highlight some of the major benefits to being a Sunborn honor guard has versus a Trade Caste valet. I would like to stress the importance of caste for just a moment by saying that there is a reason why it is listed as an advantage and as such must be purchased with valuable character points in order to possess. Consider that all sunborn would be socially higher than any trade caste member and as such would receive subtle benefits which might not norm…

    Hello there and thanks for this most excellent question. In all cases when we present animal templates they are given in broad and general terms to allow for changes to be made by Game masters or players themselves with the permission of the Game Master. In cases in which one finds that the guidelines laid out by the creators of this game do not match with the ideas one may have concerning a particular species of animal (usually after much research and investigation into the physical characteris…

    That is essentially correct.... I don't want to spoil any of our fiction for the up and coming World Guide but keep your eyes open for teasers on the forum and we will perhaps be able to deliver some tasty tidbits of the fiction to keep your interests high...

    First of all I would like to congratulate your sister on working so hard to get accepted into a college she likes.... So with respect to the title of teacher, you are correct, it is generally given to those of the Priest caste, however this does not mean that other professions cannot teach. The other professions may take apprentices and pass along the knowledge they have with respect to the skills they have mastered, which means that they can teach others in the fields they themselves have come …

    In our own games each player and by default the characters they tend to play have human weaknesses as well, whether it is an uncontrollable greed or a desire for more power or any list of other personality quirks.... I particularly love that this game encourages players to be less than perfect by awarding story points for Drawbacks in the game. These less than perfect habits and compulsions help make the game more interesting by producing characters which are more rounded and easy to relate to d…
