  • Well this a fine mess

    griffin - - General Discussion

    Post

    Thank you Scott, and Teenage Mutant Sarpah, It is true that things have been very busy for us all here at Shard RPG. We are devoting as much time as possible to keep up with our schedule regarding the completion of our next book all the while attending as many conventions as we can in an attempt to introduce others to the world we have created so that we can increase the activity on this forum and increase the number of followers we have in our family. That being said I shall make every attempt …

  • Tail Thread

    griffin - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    There is a martial style which has a maneuver which bends or breaks a tail however and its pretty effective. It can be found in the Magic and Martial Arts guide under Temple Styles, specifically the one known as Venerable Mentor Style. It is a specialized targeted maneuver on the location table listed as Snip the String. I have seen this performed a few times in game and it is very dramatic and quite entertaining to witness...

  • We appreciate the information concerning these hackers and I will be visiting this forum on an almost daily basis from this date forward in the hopes that having more eyes available on the forum might give us a greater degree of protection. I agree with what Scott Jones said however, meaning that even if I were here as they attacked there is not a great deal I might be able to do to stop them from hacking in to our space. We are taking this issue seriously and are searching for alternative ways …

  • Regarding the physical characteristics of any player character, we strive to leave the exact details of appearance to the creator of the character. Many players, myself included, find it helpful to create unique images or obtain artistic images for themselves which can be used as representations of the characters they are portraying in the game. The nature, and or style of the pieces of art created or chosen in this case are left entirely to the discretion of the player and the Game master of th…

  • I can say that we are releasing some of the highly specialized suthra (insects) which are most commonly used by Trade caste professions in the health well being and beauty of the Janah. This final book will attempt to provide all our supporters and fans with long awaited information guaranteed to improve the fiction of your game and provide incentives to encourage each player and game master to stretch the bounds of their imagination within a game setting that is virtually limitless in its poten…

  • 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 …

  • Elemental Magic

    griffin - - SHARD Magic

    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…
