The Realm of Rittguard - Supplement for #ZweihanderRPG


At first glance, Aire's wide open plains, emerald meadows and peaceful rolling hills would seem like paradise. Perhaps that's also what its first human inhabitants had in mind as they spread like a devouring plague across its four quarters.

Now Aire is wracked by strife with its bitter human realms engulfed in wars and turmoil. Worst of all is the Realm of Rittguard. The blood spilt in its cruel civil war still feeds the soil and life is yet to return to anything like normal. In the halls of its government the corrupt noble Magnates of its Sem parliament vie to come out on top of the new power structure, all the while feuding with the new weakling monarch they helped install. Barred from the true decision making, the civil wars instigators and true victors, the Burgher class and their deadly regiments of "Black" Ulani flex their new influence to the dismay of the old aristocracy.

Below it all, Rittguard's common folk live from day to day, with work scarce and vast swathes of the land suffering the scars of the brutal conflict that tore apart families.
Now if that's not a grim dark setting for adventure, I don't know what is...

In this campaign setting you will find:

  • Information about Aire, its various regions and realms (human and otherwise)
  • The human realm of Rittguard, its history, people and troubles
  • New ancestories for humans and non-humans alike
  • A few new professions unique to Aire
  • Some new trappings that fit the setting including the deadly Rittguardian Sazhka
  • New rules for the use of magick in Aire's low-magick setting
  • A grim and perilous adventure: "Muddy Waters"
  • A handful of PreGens for those days when you're feeling lazy
  • Maps of realms and places within Rittguard to fuel your own campaigns

So what are you waiting for? Dive into Rittguard and see if you come out the other end with all your limbs intact!

This is a work in progress and whilst almost all of it is already complete, things like the maps will be added as I get a chance to finish them. (Obviously the file will be updated and you'll incur no additional costs). Should the setting catch on, I'll also expand it with more setting for Rittguards closest neighbours and rivals and a couple more adventures.

Thank you for your interest in Aire and Rittguard and feel free to send over questions, requests and the like in the comments below.

Hmm, they seem to be working ok on my laptop but I'll try re-saving them and uploading them again. I hope the rest of the documents are working ok?

Are you packing the fonts with the PDF? the campaign setting seems fine, the PDF's match the pictures in the 3 maps, If the PDF's had text typed on them then I don't see them, but I see all the drawing on the maps

I've uploaded the PreGens singularly in pdf in a zip file and flattened in pdf in a zip file. If you still can't see (and potentially adapt) the text in the PreGens as a normal pdf, you should be able to see everything properly (without the option of changing things) in the flattened versions. I hope this solves your problem. Have fun with the supplement!

The files have been updated with the first few maps, mostly for the Muddy Waters adventure:

- The bridge to Ashkellian, Ashkellian gatehouse and The Sleak Salmon tactical maps. (Versions overlaid with tactical squares will be available tonight).

The following maps will be added in the coming days:
Muddy Waters
- Turmoil docks
- Slow Barrel docks
- Aire
- Rittguard
- Emain
- The province of Fuld
- Middleburg & Turmoil

Enjoy and thanks for your support!

The maps for Aire, the city of Emain, Turmoil docks and Slow Barrel docks are up. That means all maps for Muddy Waters are available and I still owe you a map of Rittguard, the province of Fuld and the City of Middleburg and adjacent Turmoil.
I also updated the Rittguard campaign setting file with the updated Aire map.

In other news: A follow up adventure to Muddy Waters is in the works called Salt in the Wound and it should be available soon. (I'll add it to the files when it's finished).
Also, I might get around to making a little chapbook for Rittguard's neighbours; Alberon, Gortland and Hayne and I'll maybe add the North-Western kingdom to it.

Thanks again to everyone who has purchased the Realm of Rittguard. Let me know if you have any questions or there's anything specific you'd like to see.

Sounds interesting, but even at this low price it needs a preview.

Product Information
Community Content
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.
