 Onyx Path Publishing and DriveThruRPG Launch “Slarecian Vault” for Scarred Lands Posted: Thu, 03 May 18:18:50  
Features, drivethrurpg, dungeons & dragons
Onyx Path Publishing is partnering with DriveThruRPG to allow independent content creators to publish material in the Slarecian Vault utilizing the OGL for both Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition editions of existing and future Scarred Lands books produced by Onyx Path. A world known to its inhabitants as Scarn, the Scarred Lands is a place of dynamic heroism, supreme villainy, and incalculable magic. Torn and twisted by battles between the titans and their children, the young gods —fought largely by monstrous titanspawn pitted against humans, elves, dwarves, and other “divine races” — Scarn is a world still wounded deeply by the Divine War that took place less than two centuries ago. "Scarred Lands is a gem of a setting that's flush with opportunities for great storytelling, adventuring, and good, old-fashioned monster hunting," says Scarred Lands developer, Monica Valentinelli. "With this setting, there's an unlimited potential for creators to explore Scarn by offering new classes, races, and more!"

"Fighting the Machine is like fighting the ocean. You literally cannot hurt it. Doesn’t matter how much poison we dump into the ocean. We’ll only kill the things in it. We’ll never kill it. Same with the God-Machine. Kill angels, traitors, stigmatics, cultists, cryptids, whatever, you’ll never hurt the Machine Itself. No, that doesn’t mean we stop trying. You stop trying, you drown. Screw that." —Mr. Bliss, Guardian Inquisitor

 A Land Divided for Shadow of the Demon Lord Posted: Mon, 26 Feb 16:27:37  
News, dark-fantasy, rpgs
Long before the Empire, created by the Kalasans after they stormed Rûl and wrested it from the clutches of the dread Witch-King, whose wicked legions had overwhelmed and plunged the continent into darkness, an ancient people known as the Edene ruled over the land. Like the Kalasans so many centuries after them, the Edene were also bold conquerors who arrived on the shores of the continent, fleeing the destruction of their homeland far across the Auroral Ocean, They arrived in Rûl, handily defeating the First People and their faerie allies who had called the continent home for centuries, and founded a new civilization in the ruins of the one that came before. The Edene claimed their empire would last a thousand years, but like so many fledgling empires since the dawn of time who believed the same, the Edene themselves were drowned in the ebbing and flowing tides of history, yet another civilization of grand ambition lost and mostly forgotten.
