Keranak Kingdoms Fantasy Setting

Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.


This setting book details the Keranak Kingdoms, a collection of provinces called home by many races and cultures.  Beset by political turmoil and moral instability, it is a realm where a sharp sword or a well-timed spell can make a commoner a legend.

Destiny has betrayed the kingdoms.  Gods who once walked shoulder-to-shoulder with mortal races are now banished, their power waning.  The divinely-chosen royal bloodline has passed to oblivion, and the lords of the kingdoms vie for the right of ascension.  The giants have broken free from the shackles of their frozen exile.  It is a time of danger, mystery, and intrigue... a time for new legends and epic adventure!

This is a different kind of setting book.  It paints a setting in broad brush-strokes, giving enough of the details to build a framework and to lay the foundation of an epic saga but leaves many details vague.  Individual game masters will fill in the details with their own brand of fantasy.  In addition to a game world is a pantheon of deities - whose role in your campaigns can be as small or grand as you wish.  Riddled throughout the book are plot seeds, adventure hooks, and various storylines to help you along.  There are also four adventure plots given to you to serve as maiden voyages to your imagination.

Welcome to the kingdoms!

Had the book arrive today. Identical size with the hardcover. I'm happy with it.

Yes, it does beat the 4 pages you get in the core manual.

Just ordered the book pdf option. Pity about shipping doubling the price, but that's not the fault of the author.
Nice little item, shame not in matching hardcover, but I will manage.

Barebones is a very nice tidy rpg though. One of my most liked purchases in 2022. Very user friendly purse sized product.

Is this different from what’s included in the main rule book?

What’s in the core book is a tiny piece of information related to this book. This book has expanded information on each province, goes into great detail on one of them, and provides a number of high-level campaign/adventure hook ideas for playing in that province.

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.
