Sovereign Stone Players Guide

Sovereign Stone Players Guide


Loerem is a world of beauty and enchantment created by renowned fantasy artist Larry Elmore, with development from New York Times best-selling authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Through Elmore’s vivid visual renditions of unique personalities, clashing nations, fantastical creatures, and enchanting landscapes alongside a saga weaved by Weis & Hickman, the culmination chronicled the mortals’ struggle to master the unfathomable power of the Sovereign Stone given them from the gods — an artifact forged for peace among races but which ignited war between brothers.

The Sovereign Stone is a lustrous crystal pyramid of four triangles that form a quadrangle at the base and come together in a point at the apex. Approximately sixteen inches tall, the artifact is carved of a single piece of crystal. It was given to King Tamaros of the Vinnengalean Empire, and in order to broker peace, he separated it into four equal pieces. One quarter went to the humans, one to the elves, one to the orks, and the last to the dwarves.

Here is where the story grows murky, clouded over with rumors and tales, few of which can be believed. One thing that is known for certain is that an army led by one of the King's sons marched on the city, and consequently the human portion of the stone was lost in a cataclysmic explosion which obliterated Old Vinnengael and left very few survivors, little accurate accounts are told of those last, terrible days. Much of what people know about King Tamaros and the Sovereign Stone is rumor and myth that has been building for the past two hundred years.

Since that day men have quested for the lost part of the Sovereign Stone to no avail. Old Vinnengael is now a cursed and abhorrent landmark. Few who venture there ever return alive, but still there are those brave or foolish enough to attempt it, drawn by the magic that pervades the city ruins and the riches said to be buried in the rubble.

There are accounts of a dark army marching across Loerem from the west, but few trust the tales. Still, some learned scholars have renewed their efforts to find the lost portion of the Sovereign Stone and reunite its parts in order to combat this or any other threat to the people of Loerem.

Do you dare trespass into Old Vinnengael or are you brave enough to face the threat from the west?

does one NEED to buy the players guide if they have got the core book?

No. Everything from the Players Guide is in the Corebook. The whole idea of the Players Guide is just that; it contains everything a Player needs.

I opened this PDF in Adobe Acrobat on my iPad and all of the pages were blank. Can you please fix this?

Not sure what happened there - I have uploaded the file again, and downloaded it to check and it looks fine now :)

It’s still turning up white, but it’s taking minutes to render a single page. That’s with the copy I download from my library. If I try to download it from this page, I get a 9KB file that’s corrupted. There’s also a white alternating gutter on each page.

The file is 88mb maybe that’s your issue?
The gutter is there to aid in print production

Chrome says it’s supposed to be 92.3MB, but DTRPG’s file is only delivering a 9KB file that’s corrupted.

Regarding the gutter, no PDF I’ve ever purchased has a gutter like that. I think that’s better served with a different file. It’s a bit of a waste of space when reading on a tablet or computer.

Thanks for letting us know Allan and Kristian, that doesn't sound very encouraging for a potential customer, specially those of us with low-end computers.

I have uploaded a newer file compatible with older versions of Acrobat, im a bit out of practice. Many apologies

Can we get a second version of the PDF without the white gutter? It's extremely distracting while reading the PDF. The text runs right up against it, creating a hard visual line that's jarring, and on one image, Larry's signature even gets cut off.

Also, the time to render a single page is still pretty long on an iPad.

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.
