Shaintar: Legends Arise (Players Guide)


Sean Patrick Fannon’s vision of Epic High Fantasy comes to life for Savage Worlds.

"The heart of any lasting and memorable roleplaying campaign is the setting. Is it vivid? Alluring? Full of mysteries, as well as straight-ahead challenges?

If the answer is “Yes” to all of these, you are in good hands.

SHAINTAR is deep in “good hands” territory.

Just paging through the Players Guide makes you want to play, and it’s genuinely hard to create a boring character using this book; everything works together to make your Hero interesting. And that’s even before you get to the four detailed Major Enemies lurking in Shaintar. Or the rules for alchemy, or the tantalizing glimpses we get of the Black Lantern and Grayson’s Grey Rangers . . .

A winner. Get this book." -- Ed Greenwood, creator of The Forgotten Realms®

Savage Worlds fans will find a lot to love about the Shaintar: Legends Arise Players Guide:

  • Eleven distinctive Races with many specialized Racial Edges for each.
  • Over 60 new Edges, including Professional, Combat, and Power Edges.
  • Expanded options for magic, including Applications for Sorcery, Extended Casting, and more.
  • New and expanded rules for Alchemists and Artificers, as well as personalized magic items.
  • Setting rules like All Out Move, the Deep Magic, and Lead from the Front.

Anyone seeking Epic High Fantasy adventure will enjoy this book, as will anyone wishing to add lots of great new material to their Savage games!

This book covers Novice through Veteran Rank gaming. Shaintar: Legends Unleashed covers Heroic and Legendary play.

Note- This is the Player's Guide for Shaintar: Legends Arise; that book is the complete setting book for Novice-to-Veteran gaming for both Players and Game Masters.

Shaintar is a "living" Savage Worlds fantasy campaign. This supplement is a must have for anyone wanting to play in the Shaintar campaign. It includes information on the history, cultures, and player races of the campaign along with new hind [...]

Shaintar: Legends Arise Bias Warning: I know the author/creator of Shaintar personally and consider him a friend. My introduction to Shaintar was also my introduction to Savage Worlds, and in a single convention setting I fell in [...]

I'm already a fan of this campaign setting, since the previous edition. I've been looking forward to this re-tooling of the setting. I like many if not all of the different aspects of the world. Sean makes some decisions about what belongs here [...]

I have enjoyed Shaintar since its first printing but Sean has outdone himself in this revision. He has embraced the new elements of Savage Worlds and used them to good effect for the world of Shaintar. Not only does the game flow well, but what sets [...]

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.
