Fading Embers is a 5e setting on the world of Nyth over 900 years after being thrust into an unnatural ice age.


After a stunning setting map, the brief Introduction walks you through Nyth's descent into a frozen world.


The Core Lands comprise a group of nations and settlements largely ruled by an upper class of nobility built around sorcerous bloodlines.

- Kingdom of Solace is the largest nation remaining in the world, ruled by sorcerous Great Houses, and in possession of the most arable lands.

- Campia Nistor is stubborn city-state governed by a sorcerous oligarchy.

- Galatia is city-state with great social disparity, rules by a tyrannical sorcerer queen.

- Urzica is a city-state of islands, run by raw democracy, and in perpetual conflict with Galatia.

- The Grand Cities are something else entirely.  They are five teleport-linked cities inside mountains, where elves and dwarves prosper in isolation.


The Wild Lands have no great nations, existing beyond the sheltered core lands.  Survival is a daily battle.

- Moldovar was once a city-state, long since shattered by lycanthropes.  Now it is a region of clans waring over limited resources.

- The Great Tundra is inhabited mostly humans and orcs, in interconnected nomadic horse tribes.

- Satu Amanar was once the capitol of an empire.  Now it is the edge of the world, a desperate population huddled within a grand ruin, surviving against all odds.


Seas & the South are a group of very different nations.

- Bacau Gara is a remote island city-state, governed and protected by the World Hearth, a deity controlling Nyth’s divine fire magic.

- The Merchant Fleets are not a single nation, but a multitude.  The fleets and ships of the half-elf ailushae are each a nation unto themselves.  They are also the main source of water trade remaining in the world.

- The Southern Elves could not be more different from those of the northern Grand Cities.  The elves of Shalanar and Talos reign over a human slave caste, forever sworn to war on humankind.

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.
