Ash: The Broken World Players Guide

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.28

The world was once whole; seas of green grass and crystal blue waters traversed the globe, great and shining cities glittered in the sunlight, and all was good. But the peoples of those times must have angered the Gods, because they sent a great stone from the heavens and the seas and the lands were undone. All was shattered, the old maps made useless, and a new shape was cast upon the world. This was two centuries ago or more – now the seas are black and full of teeth, and grasslands and forests few and far between. Much is now covered in ashes, and only the strongest sort of people survive. But even here, in the midst of such desolation, some play at making civilisations again. Some are villainous, others hopelessly naive, but all strive for the glory of the past.

And always the rumours of better lands persist, untouched by the wrath of heaven, though all but impossibly far away…

Ash: The Broken World is a campaign setting for 5th Edition. The book you are viewing is suitable for players and DMs alike, and along with the core rule books contains everything needed to take your first step into the Ash Wastes.

Thanks for checking out this release! This book is the first in a series about Ash: The Broken World, a campaign setting which takes place after a terrible cataclysm. Everything characters need to know before diving in is contained here, but in the near future I'll be releasing a DM's Guide, which contains rules, maps, and futher information on some of the mysteries hinted at inside, as well as perodic adventures after this which will update the state of the setting for interested groups - I've always disliked settings afraid to change the status quo!

I hope you enjoy the book, and find something of interest inside!

Hi James,
on hiatus until I'm finished my current some exams at the end of the month. I'm currently sitting on a pile of word documents that needs some formatting and artwork. Not abandoned, but definitely taking longer than expected. Many thanks for your interest though!

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.
