Primeval Thule 5e Campaign Setting

Selected Option:

Primeval Thule 5e is a sword-and-sorcery campaign setting redesigned for 5e (For other game systems, go back to our publisher page and select the version you want.)

Welcome to Thule, a primordial land of fierce barbarians, elder horrors, and savage wilderness. In this ancient age, humankind is a young race, newly arisen on a monster-haunted Earth. Cities of cruel spledor lie scattered across the great lands of the north like a handful of gems strewn from a dead thief's hand.

This is a doomed age, a time of great deeds and inhuman terror destined to be lost and forgotten beneath the numbing cloak of endless winter. But for one glittering moment, Thule lives—and it is a fierce, cruel, splendid, and marvelous moment indeed.

This 272-page tome provides you everything you need to introduce the world of Thule to your 5e game. Inside, you will find:

  • A new character race, the Atlanteans;
  • 19 heroic narratives such as free blade, ice reaver, and star-lore adept;
  • Over 40 new beasts, monsters, and villains to challenge your players;
  • 3 ready-to-play adventures to begin your campaign;
  • A detailed description of Quodeth, City of Thieves, the perfect home for bold heroes;
  • A separate PDF of Player Reference Cards to get your players up to speed on characters in Thule;
  • And a whole continent of savage adventure to explore! 
  • The digital download includes a full poster map in PDF format!*

Also check out the 5e Thule GM Companion, Player's Companion, and Adventure Anthology, all also available in full-color softcovers!

*The hardcover option does not come with a printed poster map, but you can include the PDF download for no additional charge.

A few. If you are looking for a good source, try Legendary Games: Mythos Monsters.

The 5e Campaign Setting itself is *not* included in the Cthulhu Mythos Sale event, even though all of the other setting versions and 5e supplements are included...?

Just got my printed copy in today, and I'm really impressed. You really can't tell that it's POD, unless you had the published version right next to it (I do). Looks great! We'll see how it holds up over time, but I'm pleased enough to be eager to purchase more POD products! Thanks!

So, this is probably my favorite campaign setting I have had the pleasure to read. I am eagerly working on getting my players over to Thule for some savagery!

However, for some strange reason, there is no map of Thule as a whole, just the differing scale mini maps of certain areas. Why in the world would a full map of Thule not be available in the campaign book? Again, I love the product, but give us a map of the whole continent please!

Would it be possible to get an unlabelled map of the city of Quodeth?

Larry M October 04, 2016 5:37 pm UTC
Agreed! Also an unlabeled map of the whole continent of Thule!

re: The three adventures mentioned in the description. Are those the same as the three in the anthology?

No, the three adventures in the Adventure Anthology pdf/POD product are all new -- they are not the same adventures that are included in the Primeval Thule Campaign Setting book.

I bought this through the kickstarter, but it is no longer shown as "owned." What is up with that? Michael

You still own the product, and you can find it in your library. Unfortunately, the way most Kickstarter fulfillment is done is through an invisible page these days, so that we backers can get our product before it is made available to the wider public for sale. It makes it harder for us the customer to find later (if you aren't familiar with "My Library", or going through the Account page for previous purchases), and it's worse for the publisher because we backers can't review the product, only comment in the discussion area. I _really_ hope that it is something that OneBookshelf (DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, etc) can fix ASAP....

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.
