SCAVENGER: Nomads of Uncharted Worlds


SCAVENGER: Nomads of Uncharted Worlds is a 5th Edition campaign sourcebook. Players take on the roles of scavengers - punk daredevils and desperates who travel the dying, bronze age world of Akara and the alien world of Torn in search of a way to survive the extinction event that is the Cataclysm. 

Found inside of this 237-page tome are:

  • The setting of Akara, complete with role tables, factions, NPCs, locations to explore, and strange mysticisms to practice!

  • The setting of Torn, which comes with 4 adventure locations, and 28 new magical items!

  • The Scavenger Suite, which details the base rules changes to the Scavenger setting, 6 new backgrounds, 13 new magical items, 3 new races (the Akaran, kith, and morg), and 4 new subclasses (the rogue’s Vermillion Hand, fighter’s Starfaller, warlock’s Core Entity, and druid’s Circle of Cataclysms)!

  • The new Expedition Experience system, rewarding scavengers not for what they kill, but for what they’re able to return back to their patrons!

  • A fully illustrated bestiary with 15 weirdling alien things for your scavengers to hunt!

This is truly a rich and amazing setting for 5e that really did go under the radar for a lot of people. I think most people's first reaction would to be to compare this to Dark Sun, and while yes it does serve as a more than amazing way to replicate it in the current edition, Scavenger offers a brand new world that easily stands on its own. Reading the book is also a pleasure. Every page inspires another idea for a quest or campaign idea, rather it be the amazing art (this book boasts being part-art part-setting book and they're not joking) or descriptions of Akara. Give it a shot

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.
