  • Question about Antlers

    Scott Jones - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    Mulefoot's exactly correct here... And it's fun to address this simply because, for the most part, most average folks don't really think about the differences in antlers versus horns when it comes to the way they grow, their consistency, and whether they shed or not... In general, and for the most part as far as I know,...antler get shed (yearly) and grow back, whereas horns (like the horns of bovines) do not... It's always good to double-check the breed of your character if you want to bring th…

    I just noticed this! For some reason this entry slipped me by! I find it AWESOME that word of our game reached you in Poland, and that you enjoyed our world for a time. So much time has passed since you first found us, but I hope you've continued enjoying our fantasy offering, and I hope you and your friends have been well. One day I hope I can come and visit your beautiful country, but until then, good luck and good gaming! Scottie

    I just happened to come across so many other videos of him recently as well! What a character!

    When you have a chance, I'm betting others would love to see a small write-up describing what this person's all about!

  • He looks great! I really love seeing these!

  • Power Pool for Summoning Suthra

    Scott Jones - - SHARD Magic

    Post

    Hello! And YES! You nailed it exactly! For most circumstances, including their reaction to being summoned or manipulated with magic ritual, the Power Pool of a creature is its Normal Action Dice for most of the regular things it does. There may be instances where you might want to use the Special Actions dice associated with the creature, but only if you feel one of its "Special Actions" would apply to its reaction to magic for some reason. The rules in the Magic and Martial Arts book are essent…

    First, please allow me to deeply and humbly apologize for somehow having missed this particular question. With the coming of Covid-19, and thus the need to stay at home and refrain from going out and having the social life we are used to, one would imagine that would leave tons of spare time to do things like attend the Forum and be more careful concerning upkeep here. Instead, it's actually slowed down progress on our primary goal (completing the World Guide) and the distractions and concerns o…

  • Yeah I think you've correctly hit upon the kind of Trade Caste campaign archetypes I happened to present in the first book, as examples... Of course, another Trade Caste type might be able to fit into any campaign based on the idea of being a "world traveler" or "exploration party" of some kind... Such a campaign (or even short-run series of adventures) could use the talents of average Trade Caste folk such as Apothecaries, Artisans of all kinds, Weapons Crafters of all kinds, Cartographers, Fur…

  • Sounds funny! I've always enjoyed the various animated Batman series, especially the original one! Thanks for sharing! Scottie

  • Role Creators Program?

    Scott Jones - - General Discussion

    Post

    Sure! Now I'm eager to find more indications about how robust their built-in features are, and how easily I can tailor them to our specific system... (in all my copious spare time, of course... ^_^) By the way, sorry it took me a bit to answer this... We've all had our noses to the grindstone trying to finish the World Guide, and have barely had the chance to maintain these forums as they deserve... Didn't mean to keep you waiting...

  • Hey there and thanks for the questions! Sorry it took me a bit to answer this, but we've had our heads down and to the grind-stone as we're desperately trying to finish our next publication of the World Guide... We, ourselves actually didn't create a Shard RPG Reddit, so now I'm REALLY curious as to where you initially posted the questions, and what's there... As to your questions (which I have hopefully understood correctly...^_^)...: * For Skills, there are several methods that determine the o…

    This looks like it could be GREAT! And maybe even allow me to run demos for potential players and customers so that they can try out the game... This is really cool! Thanks for sharing this! Scottie

  • Certainly! And we hope that everyone out there had an incredible May Day as well, however you might celebrate it. During these difficult times considering the unfortunate circumstances with Covid-19, we also want to wish you , your friends, and your family safety and good health.

  • Tattoos

    Scott Jones - - World of Dárdünah

    Post

    Body markings and modifications in Dárdünah cultures cover a fairly wide variety of methods to either color or mark skin, fur, feathers, or scales. These methods can include a variety of different techniques, such as shaving of short fur into patterns (such as seen on horses and camels in our own world), direct tattoos on the skin that either color the skin or cause special dyes to work their way into any fur that grown from that patch of skin, special "freeze-branding" techniques to make fur lo…

    Hey there! Finally we got the issue with you no longer being a "guest" resolved! It's great to see you here! Let us know if there's anything we can do to help you access any information or get you on the ground running with your own adventures. As Griffin may have mentioned to you, we already have our first two books on the shelves and ready to use (I seem to recall you mentioning you grabbed the PDFs, so thanks for that!), and we're in the process, even now, of finishing up the content for our …

  • Quote from Teenage Mutant Sarpah: “I recognize the infected Janah is a Takin ” Yes! I believe that is correct! Good eye!

  • For a more somber and melancholy view into the dangers of the world of the Shards RPG, here we have a heartbreaking watercolor piece by the wonderful contributing artist Matt Spencer! Here we see the terrible effects of one of the more deadly mineral toxins. A sad fate indeed! Djinmür Dust – A type of rare lethal systemic toxin, naturally occurring as a crumbly mineral deposit that has the deceptive look of a powdery brown spice (like cinnamon) when finely ground. Miners excavating crystal first…

  • We generally try to avoid indicating that any of our Devah are specifically meant to represent any of the particular Hindu gods themselves, merely out of respect for their religion, but it would be difficult to avoid similarities entirely, mainly because all divinities essentially represent elements of societal constructs that reflect general spirituality, human consciousness, thought and emotion, and of course ethical paths and reactions. Hopefully you found this little teaser interesting!

  • Since I have read a few interesting recent posts concerning Amnol, I figured I'd include a "yet-to-be-edited" sneak peak of Amnol's entry into the World Guide! Enjoy! Amnol – Amín, land of the red deserts. Ruler: The Aminar Pradhiman, male Grey-white goshawk. Ruling Class: Birds of different kinds, but especially birds of prey. Cultural Paradigm: Arabic/Persian with a great deal of Bedouin-like tribes that wander the wastes, yet pay allegiance to a single seat of power. There are many Arabic/Egy…
