Plains of Penance
Greg Dent
Softcover, 160 Pages, Full Color
Beyond the most populous city on the Forge lies a vast, uncontrolled expanse of rolling grasslands, scattered crags, and light woods. In strong contrast to the rest of the world, where nature stands in opposition to intelligent life, the bountiful land here provides a lush wealth of resources upon which the great cities have come to depend. Powerful forces vie for control over this abundant domain, as ruthless bloodlords of the cities clash against the deep-rooted druids of the wilds, hardened armies from the west, and even mysterious visitors from the depths of the northern oceans. Despite the constant conflicts, the vast plains hide much from the attentions of those in power and provide a breeding ground for petty tyrants, outlaws, rogue villains, and hordes of roving monsters.

Far from empty, the plains are as ancient as the cities that spring up among them and even the wilderness contains a wealth of lost history, culture, and knowledge. What lies beneath and beyond the towering cliffs of the Pedestal, and what is Israfel’s design for this ponderous landscape? Find out in the Plains of Penance.
Features:
  • 5 new player character races.
  • 5 new prestige races.
  • 2 new prestige classes and a new magic system.
  • New magic items, monsters, materials, spells, and weapons.
  • 32 page adventure beginning the central saga of Oathbound.

Wrack and Ruin
Greg Dent and Darrin Drader
Softcover, 128 Pages, B&W
The great City of Penance is the oldest settlement on the Forge, literally containing millions of years of history in its deep hulking mass. Though nearly forty million souls call the city home, less than half of one percent of the city's locations are inhabited. The bulk of the Pedestal is a madly stacked and sprawling ruin, only superficially explored by the relentless rafters and treasure-seekers of the surface world. Every home in the city has a hundred others lost beneath it, and every city street stands atop an incredible three-dimensional maze of corridors, alleyways, and crawlspaces - a maze where time has left nothing unchanged, eroding and distorting the framework of magic and even the laws of physics themselves. Long past the grasp of any human control, the ruins of Penance have become a true landscape, vast, beautiful, and unforgiving, with their own unique ecosystem and their own set of hazards and comforts. Strange plants and creatures have evolved in the eternally darkened streets below the city, and prey upon those foolish enough to step out of the city's gilded cage of civilization.

Wrack & Ruin is an essential guidebook for anyone intoxicated by the forgotten secrets of the past, or by the potential power lost within the great city's crumbling majesty. Don't leave your Bloodhold without it!
Features:
  • 3 New Player Character Races.
  • 5 New Prestige Races.
  • 2 New Prestige Classes.
  • New magic items, monsters and spells.
  • Tools for random dungeon generation.
  • A 32 page adventure through the maze introducing the central character of Oathbound.

Tom Knauss and Darrin Drader
Softcover, 252 Pages, B&W
Through all of history, a haunting whisper will not fade from memory. The legends and stories of ancestors around the fire pits of our youth continue to haunt the land. Too terrifying to be reality, yet bound in such absolute truths that their existence cannot be tossed aside easily.

Dark legends reach out across the ages to speak of a forested land ruled over by the might of an ancient and powerful creature. Known as Haiel, he visits the shores of other lands to whisk away the brave to show them true terror and to test their worthiness and cunning. Adventuring companies, villages, and even entire civilizations have been swept into the Wildwood.

The few pockets of humanity scattered throughout this untamed wilderness struggle merely to survive. Countless hordes of fearsome predators and foul beasts, including the green dragon Mastuu Dargus, freely roam through the twisted, overgrown forests and jungles of Wildwood, preying on the weak and unwary. Yet, concealed within the dense greenery of this heartless domain lies a wealth of undiscovered mysteries and limitless riches for those brave enough to navigate the endless gantlet of horrifying monsters and lethal dangers. Behind it all is the harsh and cruel master of the lands, Haiel, manipulating all of those within his domain.

The sundered ruins of lost cities and strangely altered patches of wilderness conceal vast and wondrous earthly treasures as well as new-found insight on the world’s secrets and the machinations of Haiel. Adventurers seeking to wrest mighty artifacts from their owners and unravel the enigma of this primordial domain must face the frightening denizens lurking within the shattered temples and ominous thickets of these forbidden locales. In Wildwood, one mantra reigns supreme: "Survival of the Fittest."
