Campaign Setting for Any Roleplaying Game

Explore The Untamed Wilds

The edges of the known world sit unexplored on the horizon. Above, the heavens hold indecipherable messages from the ancestors. Between these, there is much to discover: a primordial world on the brink of discovery, mythic realms of ancestral beings, a single bastion of civilization tries to resist the changes daring heroes bring to the world, and in the cold depths an ancient secret slumbers.

Welcome to Savage Dawn – the first ever system-neutral, and collaborative campaign world that grows by your game sessions outcomes. 

Savage Dawn in a nutshell:

  • A Primitive Arctic World
  • Majestic Wilderness Exploration
  • Crafting and Survival
  • Mysticism, Spirituality, Magic

What makes Savage Dawn Unique?

There are plenty of fantasy campaign settings out there to choose, so why go with Savage Dawn? Let us walk you through some of the highlights of what the setting offers:

  • Wilderness exploration and survival in a primitive age
  • Discover new and uncharted lands beyond the horizon
  • Political and tribal rivalry in a world on the brink of revolution and discovery
  • Mysticism and Spirituality. Constellations instead of Gods, Star-signs, Songs of Passage
  • Travel the mystical Ethervale: the ancestral spirit domain that becomes accessible at night
  • Harness the primal power of the Prysm: A magical force permeating this ancient world

Savage Dawn offers a refreshing roleplaying experience that will make you and your players feel like roleplaying again for the first time. By doing away with many of the cliches and hurtling your players into a primal world not structured by technology and governance, your players are forced to think on their feet. Solutions and strategies that work in medieval settings may not hold up in a barren world without metal, laws, calendars or even written language. Indeed, truth is often just a matter of which bonfire tale is passed on from tribe to traveler….
