City Catchup for HarnMaster

April 1, 2018

A process and tables for generating what has happened to characters living in cities ‘in-between’ adventures or when wintering. The article, based on the HârnMaster rules, provides player characters emerging from their time off adventuring with a story to tell and a possible change in fortune, for better or worse. It is essentially an adaptation of the old Runequest City catch up process made applicable to a Hârn setting, and using HârnMaster mechanics.

As well as a PDF, the download contains the original Microsoft Word document in case GMs wish to modify the tables for their own campaign.

The Venerable James Harn Material

January 27, 2018

In late 2015, the HarnForum sadly lost one of its stalwart members; James Watson, AKA The Venerable James. Although he didn’t not choose to have the Harn material he created published here on Lythia.com, he did have his own website. When news of his passing reached us, Matt Roegner copied all of the Harn material on James’ site before it disappeared.

That consolidated archive file is now made available here for all to share. None of the material has been edited in any way, except that it is in PDF format and each filename is labelled with James’ initials.

The files are listed below for reference. Enjoy.

  • Azeryan Money
  • Coatarms
  • Custom Armor

Tome of Cantrips

June 12, 2017

When an individual becomes a satia-mavari shek-p’var (a journeyman mage), they will often forget the simple spells they learned and used as a mavari. But there may be a place for them in a mage’s repertoire.

This 78 page article contains over 70 small, slightly useful spells for any who care to make use of them in creative and innovative ways. Need the milk cooled? Chill it. Tired of washing the windows the old fashioned way; Clean it, or maybe Dust it. The master poking holes in the toe of his sock? Stitch it.

Fate of Hârn

March 21, 2016

Fate of Hârn v3.0 (version 2016-03-20) is an adaptation of the FATE Core rules by Evil Hat Games for use in the HârnWorld setting.  It is best understood if you have access to the FATE Core rules, which are available for Pay What You Want at DrivethruRPG.  Also included is a Cheat Sheet that has proven useful to players; ‘Fate on a Page’ (actually 4 pages), my GM reference sheets; and the most recent Character Sheet that has been developed to accommodate the changes introduced with this version.
This version has been subject to extensive testing at both the occasional NorthCons (my thanks to Andy Gibson and Neil Thompson), recent IviniaCons and by the group I GM in Suffolk where I’ve been using these rules to play through the Dark Rethem Campaign using Fate.  My thanks to those players who were entirely new to Harn and relatively new to Fate — their contribution through our weekly sessions has been invaluable.  I have been posting observations about my learning about Fate Core, and this implementation of it, here (link to HârnForum) and on the Friends of Harn facebook Page.
I do not expect this version to be subject to much change until the Suffolk group complete the Dark Rethem Campaign in April/May.  However, you observations and feedback to this continuing work in, progress are welcome here (link to HârnForum).

Sastaz’s Peleahn Grimoire

June 26, 2014

Sastaz was a Peleahn Shenava who was raised and schooled in a small remote chantry in the forests of northern Kaldor. Right after his promotion to Shenava in 712 TR the chantry was attacked by unknown forces and most of members fled or were killed. Rumor has it one of the Shenavas sought to increase her own powers by striking a bargain with The Emperor of Flame. Raised in the wilderness, Sastaz’ magic aims for survival, be it striking the enemy or escaping him. A recently discovered copy of his grimoire has shed some additional light on this brave warrior mage.

Expanding Save-K’norran Ritual Choice

March 23, 2014

Save-K’norran rituals are not the most glamorous in the Libram of Pantheon. This single page article describes a house rule to make Save-K’norran priests more palatable to play.

But beware of the knowledge you seek. It could be your undoing.

As with all things, there is a price to pay; learning the rituals of other dieties is fraught with danger. Your character is only human, and may be seduced by the philosophies and outlook of those other dieties.

More Unofficial Spells

January 21, 2013

Part 7 of 7 in the series Spells

I don’t know where these unofficial spell descriptions are from but many years ago I found and edited them into the format that was used at the time. These appear to be different from the Unofficial Spells (qv) that can also be found on this site, and there are no Neutral spells, but you might still find them useful.
