"Slowly but surely withal moveth the might of the gods." — Euripides

Even in divine games of chess, the action begins with a clash of pawns. In Pawns: The Opening Move, the first supporting product for The Primal Order, you will find a collection of powerful minions, monsters, and other entitles waiting to help you add some extra excitement and challenge to your game world. Whether you're searching for divine servants to intercede between your PCs and their distant deities, mighty beasts to defy even your strongest party, or just a few fascinating creatures for your adventurers to glimpse and wonder about, you need look no further.


This supplement must be used with an existing roleplaying game system, such as those listed below. These rules should not be considered as official rules for those products and are not endorsed by the respective companies except where specifically stated ln the text.

The Primal Order is what we call a "capsystem": a system of rules designed to enhance and extend any game system on the market. To eliminate guesswork, we have included specific conversion rules for integrating The Primal Order with the following popular game systems:

  • Advanced Dungeons & Dragons
  • Ars Magica
  • Harnmaster
  • Hero System
  • Palladium
  • RoleMaster
  • RuneQuest
  • Shadowrun

  • Warhammer FRP

Why bother putting up this type of preview if its only going to show the table of contents?

Seeing the list of the system for use... couldn't you just go with system neutral?

IMHO, to be system neutral would be to have no stats at all.

This clearly has its own metastats, which are used with the system-specific conversion guidelines to generate stats for a supported system of choice.

That's multi-system not system neutral.

Scanned image
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.
