A World Regrowing...

To they who have found this tome,

What you hold within your hands is a long and arduous work to collect the history and legends of our long imprisoned world into a volume that is processable enough for those young individuals who might start to grow within our borders.

The trolls of the Xukzun Imperium held Aesyr in chains for millennia until our gods were able to rise up and break us free of bondage. However, in recent decades, chaos has started to return to our lands as the gods choose to follow their own desires and paths rather than heed the wishes and needs of the people they once helped to rescue.

Exploring our thirteen counties, the methods of magic used by our people, our coinage, and the phenomena of trollblooded children growing amongst our populace - this book will be your guide, along with my own small notes, to the rebirthed world of Aesyr.

Zachariah Dalemorn, Former Ranger-General of the Olryn Order


The World of Aesyr

In a land shrouded by fog and mysticism, the Xukzun Imperium reigned supreme for millenia, believed to have gotten their powers from the Titans of Creation themselves. However, the mortal races - all created by the Xukzun trolls - came to chafe under this rule and took up arms against their makers. Mortals would have failed had it not been for the gods, individuals who used troll magicks to ascend to incredible and sometimes horrible power. While some worried that the gods might fill the power vacuum left by the trolls, this fear faded as the gods and mortals worked together to push the trolls back over the southern and northern mountains into the great cloud forests that fill the landscape beyond their impressive peaks.

Today the gods walk amongst the people of Aesyr, and wherever they wander demigods are born called trollblooded. These trollblooded will sometimes erect temples to their godly parents, or will simply try to live without the cloud of divinity over their heads. Mortals themselves can ascend to godhood, either through defeating a god - which has only happened on three occasions - or finding lost troll laboratories and undergoing ascension rituals...should they survive.

After seeing that you were inspire by so many popular game,I just want to know how you guy mix these thing together。Finally I’m wrong。After reading 37pages pdf, the matter in this book are so lack,you guy mention a lot of interesting thing but not a single point write deeper。the magic is a background,the laboratory of trool is a background,the god is a background,you just mention this but never write the detail。 The largest thing you write is the system of gun,but this isn‘t the theme of your book ,your book is about the troll and their heritage。sorry but I think this waste my money。

Hi there Zhao,

I am sorry that you feel that way, however, I wanted to set down to explain to you how the book is really meant to work. As a microsetting, it is self contained within that 37 pages - as you pointed out - and is really meant only to give you a taste for the world to be extrapolated and expanded on as wanted/needed at your table. We leave it up to the DM and the players as to how they see fit. The magic, the laboratories, the gods: these are seeds that folks can use to their own degree or want. So if you are a DM who is drawn to the drama of the gods, then you have the beginning pieces in the lore to be able to start a dietic soap drama across the counties. If you are a DM who is drawn to the troll laboratories, then you have the start to put together a biotech horror movie in an old sunken lab.

The firearm system is the most detailed as that is an integral mechanical piece for players to use. Even if we mentioned it, that is a feature that could not be left to the players...See more

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.
