Shattered Dawn Player Guide PDF

Watermarked PDF

Shattered Dawn is a story driven game, where players may create and play their 
own characters in an expansive fantasy world. Shattered Dawn is not like other 
games, the rules and gameplay have been carefully crafted to be simple, fast-paced 
and allow for new players, and veteran players, alike to fully enjoy the lore and 
narrative without having to constantly focus on rules.
This is a tabletop role-playing game that is designed to be easy for new people, 
but allows for increased complexity based on play style. The gameplay system 
challenges the traditional archetypes of character creation and party roles. 
Our classless system allows for complete customization of every aspect of your 
character and allows characters to learn new things at any point. Shattered Dawn’s 
advancement system challenges the meta of party dynamics. Rogues do not have to 
wield daggers, mages can wear full plate armor, and berserkers can 
unleash a fury of spells.
Shattered Dawn uses a custom d100 based system that focuses on quick combat and rolling to
allow the storytelling to prevail. Many of the games mechanics and system are useful tools to
empower storytelling, rather than storytelling being subject to the rules themselves.

Shattered Dawn takes place in the world of Earythe, a grim world waiting to be freed from the
shackles of tyranny. This is a world whose history has been shaped through the ages by the proud
Ethyl race and continues to be ruled by their iron fist. The idea of autonomy, of freedom, is but an
illusion. Though they claim to be free men and women, the six warlords who reign across Earythe
bend knee to the Patriarch of the Ethyl. In return, he only asks them to deliver sacrifices to his reign
every seven years during the Reaping.
Explore the history of a world shaped by war. Within the lore are several scenarios from which the
Arcmaster can place his own campaign. Fight against the Ethylian genocide, their absolute rule, or
else fight to instill their order. Fight to preserve the history as it is presented, or else fight against the
hands of fate and create a new future for Earythe. Else fight in Earythe’s present and prepare the
world for the inevitable return of the Outcast King.
Struggle beneath the rule of tyrants. Whether it be the Patriarch who demands the blood of his
people as proof of his rule, or the Father of Monsters whose experimentations have created the
monsters that plague this world. Conspire with the tyrants, work with them, turn them against one
another, or simply overthrow them. In Shattered Dawn, the world’s future rests in the player’s hands.

For those of you wondering, its a d100 system. For simplicities sake, its almost a direct copy of skyrim into rpg form. You have a max level of 50 getting skill points to use in skill trees. If I remember correctly, you could max 2 complete trees with some leftover into a third. Its a build your own class through said skills. Crafting is an option but the devs opted to not include ingredients so those are up to the game master to handle. IE potions and smithing. Enchanting is possible too but easier to make up than a list of ingredients. All ingredients for potions also have 4 discover effects despite not having any sort of list.

Without having played it yet, all skills seem to be viable and balanced based on the trees alone. Spells I am unsure of at all because once again having not played.

Please update this with a preview that is readable and large enough to tell us about the system. What do you mean by a d100 system? Is it percentile? Roll high? What can characters do? Are they heroic or scrubs? Magic items?

Right now I have zero idea how this game works or what makes it different or worth such a high pdf price.

Some information regarding basic mechanics or how the system actually works (cornerstones of the system) would be most welcome.

The link to a PDF preview doesn't work. Any chance of that being fixed?

Thanks for the heads up! I'll get with DriveThru on why it's not showing. The quick preview does work, though its a smaller file. The file download after purchase works correctly though! I'll update here once the full-size preview is fixed.

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.
