FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 29, 2019 — Onyx Path Publishing, owner and publisher of the Scarred Lands role-playing game, is pleased to announce two new serial releases: Vigil Watch and Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad.
Ghelspad is a massive and diverse landscape that is the hallmark of the Scarred Lands setting. Once a paradise, this continent is now scarred by the ravages of the Titanswar. In the wake of divine bloodshed, the people of Ghelspad survive and thrive on this befouled continent. Two upcoming releases explore this setting to give players and GMs more material to draw from for their campaigns.
Vigil Watch explores six different locations across Ghelspad. From the bloody shores of the Toe Islands in the east to the Sweltering Plains of the West, Vigil Watch provides an in-depth look at a variety of locales and cultures. This release will contain:
- Expanded information on the culture of the Ironbred and their nomadic home, the Iron Court
- A detailed view of Leoni, the center of the Manticora Confederacy
- The frontier settlement of Mansk, home to human and orc wolf-riders under the leadership of Warlord Klesh
- The terrifying deadlands of the Festering Fields
- An exploration of the Library of Lokil
- A detailed discussion of the Toe Islands in the Blood Sea including the pirate operations that operate from within the dangerous archipelago.
Each location includes an overview of the people, cultures, traditions, and enemies. Vigil Watch is written by Celeste Conowitch (Blood Sea: The Crimson Abyss 5e, Venture Maidens), Joshua Doetsch (Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer), Lewis Harris (Destiny 2, Hunter: The Reckoning – Wayward) Joshua Heath (Adventures for Curious Cats), Jessica Ross (Sundered Sisters, Uncaged Volume I), and Roman Trevisanut (Legendlore RPG).
Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad offers new insight into heroes and villains, as well as the tools they use to rise to power, through the eyes of Yugman the Sage. This release will contain:
- 21 new Social Backgrounds expanding the sects & societies introduced in the Scarred Lands Player’s Guide
- 23 new subclasses, with each base class represented
- 6 new Races including Broadreach dwarves, and a revised Hollow Legionnaire
