Fabled Lands Core Rule Book


The Fabled Lands Core Rule Book and source books are based on the game books written by Dave Morris and Jamie Thomson.

Harkuna is a world of mystery, intrigue and high adventure. Create campaigns and quests based in your favourite territories from the Fabled Lands: The War-Torn Kingdom of Sokara; the prosperous cities of Golnir (Cities of Gold and Glory), the Violet Ocean (Over the Blood-Dark Sea), north through the Spine of Harkun to The Plains of Howling Darkness, further west to The Court of Hidden Faces in Old Harkuna or east across the ocean to the Lords of the Rising Sun in Akatsurai.

The Role Playing Game has been designed using rules that are based on the original game book rules but have been expanded to achieve a party, role play experience. Within this Core Rule Book you will find:

• Character Generation
• Combat
• The gods of Harkuna
• The chronology of Harkuna
• An overview of the world
• A chapter for the Gamesmaster that includes a detailed look at Yellowport in Sokara
• A Quest set in Yellowport to get you started

The Fabled Lands Core Rule Book come with a full colour large map of the Fabled Lands

Further question, why is this title not being mentioned on the publishers actual website?

Odd they are not trying to market it there.

I was just on YouTube, apparently no one is talking about this item.

No shortage about the old books, and some mention of the video game.

But no one is talking about the RPG book here.

I suggest the author attend to this :)

I took a fresh look at my pdf and, this book needs some further attention. Maybe a pod treatment would be a good idea.

Hi Lesley,
We did the RPG almost 15 years ago.

Ahh, might be a good time to mention it again then :)

Still looks like it can compete in my opinion.
Although those ink sucking page borders, ugh! I'm editing those off the page first. Even if it is a professional print service doing it, I find the pages much nice to look at without those borders.

Is this for solo play?

Hmm, it looks like a good design. Not the usual 6 stat notion and not the usual classes. I think this one will require me to look it over for a while to see if it is original enough. But it appears to be a complete RPG not needing another book.
I'm fond of one only book designs.

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.
