5e Harn

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

Want to play in the HarnWorld setting using D&D 5e rules? Here you will find a 'light-touch' adaptation to capture the gritty, low fantasy medieval feel of Harn, while retaining 5e's elegant game mechanics. This is an unofficial product, approved by the copyright holders.

Recommended Hârn resources: HârnWorld Master Module, Hârndex, and HârnMaster, available here on DriveThruRPG.

Recommended D&D 5e resources: Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, Xanathar's Guide to Everything, Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide (backgrounds), and Ghosts of Saltmarsh (backgrounds).

HârnWorld is a detailed, realistic, flexible, and system-neutral setting for fantasy role-playing games. Since 1983, HârnWorld has been used by thousands of people across the world to run a wide array of medieval fantasy adventures. HârnWorld can accommodate whatever style of campaign you are looking for, whether your player characters are knights, mages, barbarians, clerics, noble lords, mercenaries, gladiators, craftsmen, merchants, thieves, or even simple peasants yearning for adventure.

I wrote to Columbia Games to ask whether this product's use of the Hârn map art was licensed or a copyright violation, and got a reply from Tom Dalgliesh saying, "These 5e articles are not licensed by Columbia, but we are aware of them and have approved them because our copyright is being acknowledged. No worries." I thought other fans (and potential buyers) should be informed.

Thanks, Doug. The preview pages now clearly show the copyright & trademark text block, which reflect this.

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.
