NOTE: If you purchase the pdf, when the print options become available (waiting on the color softcover one now), you'll receive a print-at-cost link. It'll end up saving you about 50 cents, but this way you won't be "punished" for buying early!


As the cathedral drifts before the angel gate the priests begin chanting prayers, beseeching it to open a path so that they may once again begin the Golden Pilgrimage.

A ship loaded with firewater and other contraband from the City of Brass drifts silently through the Deep Astral, hoping to evade border islands...and whatever lurks in the darkness.

As a kytheran raiding fleet swiftly approaches, the soldiers of a dwarven multi-fort load elemental cores into an array of fire lances.

Thoughtform trembling with nervousness in front of so many enlightened Astral weavers, a t’pual battlemind begins its graduating shape-kata exam.

A mining vessel launches a series of towing chains into a stabilized earth mote. They begin to reel it in, hoping it won’t fluctuate before they can extract usable ore to process later.

The consuming darkness crawls towards the cold, pale spires of the elven city Astrazalian. Most of the inhabitants retreat behind closed doors: only the White Owls, nobility and the ignorant dare tread outside before it passes.


A Sundered World is a fantastic, kind of gonzo campaign setting for Dungeon World. It takes place in the shattered remnants of the worlds, which were ravaged during a cosmic war between the gods and primordials (which wiped them all out in the process). It includes:

  • Ten races, each with their own race moves, to better allow you to determine how much your race affects you (and serve as a foundation in case you want to flesh out an entire racial class). There's also guidelines and suggestions for using them in "default" Dungeon World games.
  • Six new classes.
  • New weapons, armor, dungeon gear (including poisons), services, transport options, hireling skills, buildings, and magic items.
  • Materials to further customize your weapons and armor: bind a wind spirit to your spear so that it flies further, shape a shield out of black ice, or don sturdy-yet-weightless armor shaped from raw astral essence.
  • Ships, both magical and mundane, to help you get around the Remnants, Maelstrom, and the darker regions beyond. There's ship-specific moves, plenty of example ships to choose from, and a section to help you build an entirely custom ship of your own design.
  • World moves for drifting through the astral, willing objects into existence using astral essence, lingering on as a ghost when you die, and more.
  • Eleven new monster settings, detailing glorious-yet-terrifying angels, sinister devils, cold, emotionless machines from the pre-Sundering era, spirits that managed to survive the Sundering, and strange beasts that were changed during the Sundering, or managed to adapt.
  • Six varied example campaign and adventure fronts to get you started.

Buying the pdf gets you both the black and white and color versions. Each class gets their own character sheet, and there's even a blank, generic character sheet, which might be useful for characters pile on the race moves and/or end up going into one of the many compendium classes available.

The setting has undergone extensive playtesting: you can read up on session reports here.

Delos Adamski, of the blog Ramblings of Jacob and Delos, has put up the first part of a kind of broad strokes review of the book.

Also, Drunkens & Dragons made a video review!

@Entropy: It's just a campaign setting: you will need the DW book to play it using DW (though you could lift the setting/flavor and convert it to other games).

Will I need Dungeon World as well if I purchase this? Unsure if this is purely a setting book or what precisely.

@Michael: Oh yeah. We're waiting on the softcover print proof now. When we get that, assuming there are no issues, we'll also setup a hardcover and B&W softcover option. Something I didn't think of was for people that already got the pdf: we'll send out a print-at-cost coupon, so you aren't "punished" for buying early!

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.
