It's Christmas in July! From now through July 31st, Santa has marked down this digital title by 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

The gods have vanished from our world, leaving us to face the end alone. Pick up the mantle as one of the Star Fated and guide our destiny through this perilous time. Will you save us, or guide us to our doom?

With a unique twist on the d20 style, this game lets you play powerful characters against even stronger universal forces on a quest to guide destiny. Warsong has an in-depth combat system and a world-changing Fate mechanic.

Eldorande is a gigantic world that is constantly changing. Many of the old documents that have researched the world's geography and its denizens disappeared with the gods. It is a high fantasy setting with a futuristic twist. Magic and sorcery and technology exist in the same world, sometimes overlapping to create amazing wonders. Eldorande is an animistic world where everything has a guardian spirit. Sorcerors wield power that can shatter the entire world. The Void has been freed from her prison and has begun to devour the world.

Warsong uses a unique twist on the d20 system. Character creation is incredibly customizable. You have the ability to create entirely unique characters. The leveling system gives you an incredible amount of choice as well. Two characters of the same Constellation could wind up being entirely different due to a Quirk system. Quirks represent the powers and abilities your character acquires through experience and practice. Each level gives you points to buy whatever powers you choose. There are very few restrictions to the powers you can acquire during play.

Constellations take the place of classes. They offer a multitude of options and growth options that adhere to the philosophical concepts that the Constellation embodies. Such as the Constellation of the Sword who is chosen from those who find vitality in conflict. They are the strategists and warlords of Eldorande, and none can match their skill in combat and none are nearly as deadly. The Constellation of the Wand, who take their own from the scholars and sorcerors who can shake the world with their intellect, uncovering the secrets of the universe and all things within it. The Constellation of the Crown, the life-blood of the world. Their decisions steer the course of mortal nations. The Constellation of the Muse who sings with the beauty of the world, inspiring artists, poets and musicians and launching them into greatness. The Muses are deadly with their instruments, wielding the secret songs of the universe to wade through the tides of warfare. The Constellation of the Beast, who are the wardens and protectors of the ancient wild lands. They are swift and steady hunters who cannot be outrun. When they choose their quarry, it is already too late.

Character generation is entirely customized and does not involve chance. You can build a character any way you want!

The War Mechanic is a unique twist on the d20 style. In combat, you are no longer are you fettered simple by Armor Class, letting the opponent hit you and then rolling to hit your opponent. In Warsong, you are capable of actively defending yourself and even mitigating incoming damage damage through armor and dodge bonuses. Abilities have been condensed into a simple attribute system that is both simple on paper, but complex in play. These attributes are everything you need to play the game. Specialties give bonuses to these attribute rolls, and can be anything you decide!

Warsong also integrates a world-breaking mechanic that allows the Star Fated characters to completely alter the flow of the game, and sway the story in any way they choose with an immersive, story-driven Destiny mechanic. Delve into the very skeins of fate and act upon the course of time as it flows, guiding it to your own ends. The fate of the world is literally yours to do with as you please.

This core book gives you everything you need to begin playing a Star Fated in Warsong: Between The Stars!

Let me preface this by saying I didn't end up giving the book a read through though my friend purchased it for himself and myself. This comment is from my own point of view, only, and I do not speak for him. We purchased the game because one of the writers came to my personal website for gaming and got a bunch of us invested in it and a campaign he was going to run there for it. We all made monetary purchases and once we did? He disappeared and the game never happened. Afterwards I, as admin, sent him multiple messages asking what was happening, or if he could please let the players at my site know what was taking so long, he never even read those messages. It might be a great RPG, I don't know, but it feels like a con to get purchase sales and I hope this isn't done at other gaming sites or through other venues.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I am aware of what happened and I can assure you that it was never meant to be a scam of any sort. We don't do business that way. I can assure you that, from our side of things, it was simply a missed connection that unfortunately fell through the cracks. I would like to extend a humble apology to anyone involved who is unhappy with their purchase, and I will happily extend a personal refund to anyone who purchased Warsong using the coupon code I provided to your site. Just contact me and include the receipt of the transaction.

Yea, Ray contacted me via Meetup.com to try to get me to promote his latest effort. I told him to send me a copy, and I'll try to run it. Of course, no reply from Ray. I don't know whether it's a con, but he's sending spam regardless. His latest effort has comically bad art, coupled with a silly derivative premise and setting. These might be "fantasy heartbreaker" games, if they didn't appear so thoroughly amateur. The reviews are unbelievable. Rebecca, please post whether you get your money back.

Why are four of the glowing reviews written within about 14 hours of each other?

I gave out a few copies of Warsong around the time the book was published. As a new, relatively unheard of publisher, I'm honestly just happy to have gotten the reviews at all!

Format

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.
