Shattered: A Grimdark RPG


Delve into a world of perilous exploits and horror!
Millennia ago, the world of Feneryss was shattered. The Alypse gathered in the millions to sacrifice themselves in a ritual to their god, Ragnarok. They failed, and in so doing destroyed the world. The ritual bled magic into the world, known as arkäna, and allowed unimaginable eldritch horrors to cross the divide. The oceans boiled away, tectonic plates clashed, and catastrophic storm systems ravaged civilization. Mankind was reduced to scrounging in the ash and rubble. Subjected to the elements and the warped power of arkäna, humanity was transformed. When the dust settled, not one, but eight distinct races arose to face the challenge.

What will you do?

Will you defend budding civilization from the monsters and undead roaming the world? Will you captain a motley crew aboard your very own airship? Will you harness the power of the elements and Aspects for good or evil? Will you be the one to unravel the world’s arkäne mysteries and ascend to godhood?

There are many paths for an ambitious adventurer.


Shattered is a self-contained pen-and-paper roleplaying game. Gather a handful of your friends around the table and realize your favorite imagined heroes in the adventures you’ve always dreamed of!

•Full rulesets for players and a guide for Game Masters.

Hey guys, anybody that's bought it - what's the approx ratio of rules versus lore in this book?
Customer avatar
I N D E December 15, 2017 11:51 pm UTC
Hey Pawel D, thanks for asking! We estimate that there's about a third of the book is lore. Half of that lore is interspersed within the book while the other half in within Chapter 1: The World of Shatered.

Any reviews out there? And when will the pre-ordered books ship?

This is definitely on the top of my radar, but it is far above my normal price range so it may be a minute. Looks outstanding!

Hey Jarad C! We're expecting to ship the pre-order hardcover books during February as we are supposed to receive them from the printer in the first week of February. And thanks for the heads up, we'll keep troubleshooting the preview.

is there any chance for an expansion book that has ground vehicles in it?

Nick, thanks for asking! We have a lot of different ideas for the future that we will need to sift through so we don't want to promise any specifics. That said, ground vehicles have definitely been something that has been discussed, so it is a distinct possibility.

1) The preview doesn't work.

2) Does anyone who bought this book has a review on it? The description is interested but a 30$ for PDF especially when it's studios first and only book is pretty much. I kinda want to at least have a clue of what I'll get for this sum of money

Seph sorry to hear about the preview. We are looking into the issue and hope to have it resolved shortly.

In the meantime, we have set up an external preview link that you can use if you want to get a closer look at Shattered:

The game looks interesting, but $30 is far too much for a PDF in my opinion

Its a little high then some of the other PDF's on here, but... I just purchased it and man the artwork is beautiful. I do recommend getting it.. it looks at first glance like a very refreshing and new RPG... something my table has been craving. I might actually do a real review of it after I read it.

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.
