Campaign Setting for Any Roleplaying Game

Survive The Primal 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.

Savage Dawn is a free system-neutral, and community-driven fantasy setting/expansion that is easy to adapt into any fantasy roleplaying game.
