 Hael Product Spread

Welcome to Hael — the fast, furious, and fun fantasy world where the Orcs and Gnolls won the war – now adapted for the Savage Worlds rules.

Hael isn’t just another world – it’s a journey into the heart of war, ambition, and drama! On the way you will visit a sorcerous Dominion ruled by Daeorcs, the descendants of Orcs; an Empire where the Yaena, the

children of the Gnolls, have perfected the arts; and a wilderness where the untamed Humans, Halflings, and Kirene endure a daily life-and-death struggle to survive.

You will come to the Daeorc tower of High Sorcery, the great Storyteller Lairs of the south, and the desert plains where the Calling brings those who live in the wilderness to the power within themselves.

The Strangers are here also, trying to escape their fate at the hands of the merciless, steel Nuclarine. New technology will merge with the power of magic and of the mind, and you will see a war brewed from the mix.

Hael takes several existing fantasy ideas that you know and love – Orcs, Gnolls, Humans, Halflings, and magic – and develops them to a degree that makes then new again. Stuff like the techniques of Daeorc Sorcerers; the martial arts styles of the ever-flexible Yaena warriors; and the guerrilla fighting tactics of Human barbarians with psychic powers.

Speaking of psychic powers, Savage Worlds Edges have provided us with an even more streamlined and elegant set of rules than the old d20 SRD ‘Psihammer’ rules, and we have added a real psychic-fantasy flavour with these Edges and Powers!

Then Hael takes off with a bunch of inspired and well defined new material – like the untamed Kirene and the blood-sacrifice rituals of their Druids; the mental powers of the Strangers; the awesome technology of the Nuclarine and their malevolent Steel-Gods.

With all this going on something has got to give – and it does! You’ll be there on the brink for the second war of Hael, as psychic barbarians, sophisticated Sorcerers, deadly Outriders, murderous Druids, and the Alien newcomers make and break alliances, trying to become the rulers of Hael.

Hael is a layered and navigable PDF, best viewed in the latest version of Adobe Acrobat.

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.
