Early Dark Character Creation Companion

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

The Early Dark Character Creation Companion contains a detailed account of an entire group making characters for the Early Dark RPG. This is NOT a stand-alone game and requires the Early Dark Corebook available here at DriveThruRPG to fully enjoy.

Follow three players and a Scribe as they decide how to weave the campaign's Scenario and how to begin the adventure. You will find extra information on several character creation choices, where the strategy lies in fleshing out the initial Epithet, and how to make the most of starting Alignments. 

In addition to extensive examples, the Character Creation Companion reproduces most of the charts needed to build a character. No more fighting over the Early Dark Corebook when three or four players are choosing Arts and Milieus! This 28-page pamphlet is perfect for Scribes who want to put NPCs together on the fly or for experienced players making a second or third character. The Early Dark Character Creation Companion can even act as an introduction to the world of the Hara Sea, an extended preview of the Early Dark RPG itself.

Early Dark is a world rife with human conflict, fearsome natures, and uncertain magicks. Millennia ago, kingdoms and empires witnessed the birth of a new power, a magick capable of controlling time, shifting continents, realigning the very stars. Through three generations of war, great Weavers wrought all forms of ill against nature, pitting mighty civilizations against one another before their own kind died out, taking the power of the Loom with them. Where would heroes come from in such a world and how would they live? The Early Dark Role-Playing Game centers on these heroes, characters created and controlled by you, the players. The lives of heroes are both mythic and mundane, and Early Dark hopes to capture both the common and the cosmic sides of a world where morning fog lingers late, and dark falls early.

    Original electronic
    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.
