World of Greywyn Second Edition Core Setting

Watermarked PDF

World of Greywyn was first released in November 2015. What started as a simple campaign setting has evolved into its own rich, complex world complete with interesting characters, locations, and unique lore.

This Core Setting is the first installment in the World of Greywyn Second Edition. This new version of the setting  features characters, items, and new locations that extend beyond the borders of the original release.

As these details unfolded it was necessary to make a few map changes, but nothing that should prevent you from using it alongside your existing "Core Setting 1.0” campaigns. A full changelog is included in the Core Setting book.

What else is new? Characters! The new Character System lets you play as a Warrior, Mage, Archer, or Rogue. The system is simple for both beginners and for players who just want to get on with the quests without spending too much time on character creation. It is also flexible enough to mix and match with your own rules.

We have also added NPCs to many locations in Greywyn, and you’ll find several of them included here that your players may encounter in their quests.

The World of Greywyn Second Edition: Core Setting package includes:

  • Core Setting Book
  • Player's Guide PDF
  • World Map of the Continent of Systria
  • Map of the Kingdom of Greywyn
  • Character Journal w/Character Sheets
  • City Maps:
    • Greywyn City
    • Sunder
    • Whitecliff
  • New Locations & Towns for Second Edition:
    • The South Lands
    • Thornburgh
    • Mistdale
    • ...and more!

(*Note: All books & maps are downloadable PDF documents, not a physical book)

The Core Setting 1.0 release will remain available here on our DriveThruRPG store. As always, support and questions are just an email away.

I hope you enjoy World of Greywyn for years to come!


*Game Engines/Rule Systems/Combat Systems

It's important to note that Greywyn does not include its own rule system and isn't dependent on any specific game engine. There are many rule systems available that you can adapt to Greywyn. You should also consider the Character System "experimental" and evolving - there will be iterative updates to this product as I refine these features.

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.
