Enter a World of Splendor and Blood

In the marketplace, flame-tongued griots recall the glories of dead heroes to set the people ablaze against their undying Eternal foes. In the palace, mighty warriors stride among pillars of carved ebony and bright jewels. Beneath the earth, daring adventurers plumb the mines of ancient kings, veins of gold shining in the flickering torchlight. And in the forest, masked ngangas utter the sorceries of their ancestors to break the bleak curses that witches have hurled upon their people.

In this complete game in a single volume, you'll find...

  •   A complete African-inspired campaign setting
  •   Old-school compatible classes for ngangas, griots, and marabouts
  •   New spells, magic items, and foes from African mythology
  •   Focused GM tools for building sandbox campaigns
  •   Tools for managing the background strife of restless kingdoms
  •   Resource tables, unkeyed maps, adventure creation tools, and more!


Spears of the Dawn is an African-inspired game built with the free, award-winning Stars Without Number system. Within this book you will find all the tools needed for adventuring in the wild and brooding Three Lands, where the bones of ancient Obas rest uneasy in cities of stone and blighted memory. Dare the tombs of the bitter Eternal and the courts of leopard-mantled kings to find the wealth of a new world!

Wonderful example of a well done fantasy setting inspired by African culture without being a thinly disguised Africa copy. The cultures, character classes, and creatures all provide wonderful inspirations for running campaigns or creating your own sett [...]

I ordered the Soft Cover + PDF bundle and have not been disappointed by either. A solid game setting, simple but fun rules system made for tweaking for your own needs and a large number of ideas for NPCs, conflicts and adventures presented as random ta [...]

Wow. I am extremely happy with this. I purchased the Hardcover/PDF combo and feel that the product is well worth the price that I paid. Back in the D20 days I purchased the Nyambe: African adventures game, and enjoyed reading it. It was a lab [...]

I have rarely come across as well thought out roleplaying settings as this, and I am definitely loving the chance to play more "Sandbox" styled games, giving the players an opportunity to affect the world on a larger scale than they might hav [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
