Karthun: Lands of Conflict


Karthun was once a land of peace and prosperity. Then the release of the Worldfire and the breaking of the planes ushered in the Age of Conflict. Now, rulers wage war against the legions of the Three Demon Kings, ravenous undead horrors…and each other. Karthun needs heroes to stand against the darkness, but to be a hero in Karthun is to be a legend, for even the gods can perish here. All that awaits the fallen is the cold embrace of the Mother of the Dead.

Karthun is an extensive epic fantasy setting for use with your favorite system such as Fate, D&D, or Savage Worlds. You must own a system book of your choice to play. Inside, you’ll find plenty of character ideas, locations, and NPCs to send your characters off on adventures galore. This book includes:

  • Plenty of international strife and potential controversy to fuel a political intrigue plot, an extensive spy network designed to support campaign espionage, and warring nations to build epic battle campaigns
  • Smaller locations and story seeds to support one-shots or shorter campaigns
  • A sample bestiary, including new creatures like the Worldfire Hound and the Spinesnatcher, for your adventurers to defeat
  • A variety of potential player character races and classes, including a new race, the Illyn
  • Karthun technologies to bring a new twist to the standard fantasy campaign
  • An adventure template to help you build your campaigns, as well as a starter adventure: the Black Cabinet

Karthun needs heroes. Will you heed the call?

This is a full-color, 8.5x11 page size, 272-page PDF.

How do I tell DriveThruRPG that I want to follow up on Karthun specific products, esp. the upcoming The Karthun GM's Guide? I'm already following Evil Hat Productions, LLC.

When will the Gamemasters Guide to Karthun be available and how much will it cost? I just bought Karthun: Lands of Conflict, and I love the Fate Core mechanics, so I honestly hoped there would be at least some mechanics in the book. But it says the rules mechanics will be in the GM guide :/

The development has begun, but it's a long cycle to get it done correctly. In the meantime, I'd recommend using Fate Core or something like War of Ashes: Fate of Agaptus or the Fate Freeport Companion as those are both solid D&D-but-in-Fate implementations.

noticed a possible issue with the pdf, when trying to use the reader app on windows 10 all the pages are pitch black save for some section headers, works fine with adobe acrobat but thought it would be worth noting this.

Any chance of a preview that shows a single page (as opposed to a 2-page spread) so that I can actually read the content ... ?

AKA the "Full Size Preview" link instead of the "Quick Preview" link? Yes. Already. :)

The full size preview is what I clicked on and it has a 2-page spread that I'd have to strain to read

Don't know what to tell you, man. That's DriveThruRPG's widget, not Evil Hat's; we just supply the PDF and they render it.

Here's a screenshot of the "Quick Preview":

Here's a screenshot of the "Full Size Preview":

As you can see, for me, the Full Size one does exactly what you asked for. If it's behaving differently on your system, that's something to contact DriveThruRPG about. It's fully out of the publisher's control.

Are there detailed maps of the regions? Can we get a preview in a couple of them?

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.
