The Star-Shaman's Song

I will sing to you of bear gods and lion gods and ape gods, of wandering clans trying to stay ahead of the winter, of the doorways into dreams that offer salvation or despair, depending on the whim of the elves on the other side. I will sing to you of kraken cults, of woolly unicorns, of oozes and constructs, of the King of Death himself, in whose halls I have shined my light the only glow in that infinite darkness.

If you're ready to listen, I'm ready to sing. Let me gather my drum and my string. Are you ready?

Then hear me, and know that I am the Star-Shaman and my song is the song of the land of Planegea …

The first, and wildest, of all worlds!

Planegea   Star Shaman (Skew)

A World of Bone & Fire: Planegea

Planegea is primal fantasy roleplaying. Whatever you want to explore in 5E—slaying monstrous creatures, navigating political intrigue, exploring ancient ruins, crafting enchanted weapons, infiltrating evil cults, battling, building, casting, carousing—it’s all here. Planegea rises out of our earliest ancestral memory, a world we can barely recognize, which holds all the adventure we can imagine. You won’t find limitations on class or kinship here; rather, the world is filled with ideas and inspiration for running a long and glorious game set before written words, hammered ore, and plowed fields.

Drawn from the traditions of sword & sorcery pulp adventures, infused with the blood-pounding thrills of the Fury Road, and caught in the jaws of primordial dreams, Planegea has adventures for everyone who ever felt the cold wind raise a chill of hunt and hope on their raw skin.

Nothing is as you expect in Planegea. Elves are shimmering dream-walkers, dwarves are half stone, humans are beast-tamers, halflings are silent stalkers, gnomes are filthy scavengers, and dragonborn are just a heartbeat away from their draconic ancestors.

There are no great, universal gods—only a patchwork quilt of local deities, often appearing in the shapes you least expect, with powers that are bought with offerings and strange favors.

In Planegea, the planes of existence have not yet separated, and a warrior can travel by foot from the Sea of Stars to the infinite, volcanic peak of Blood Mountain; but along the way, that warrior must battle everything from cold alien intelligences to the genie caravans; from the four empires of the giants to the monsters that hunt the howling  peaks and roaring oceans that ring the Great Valley; from the cold, bony fingers of the Nightmare World to the terrifying jaws of the jungle known by as the Venom Abyss. Every step of the journey is plagued with danger and death.

This is obviously written with 5e in mind, but it seems like a good fit for the Paleomythic ruleset.

I backed this on Kickstarter. Got almost all the content early and immediately started playing. This Campaign Setting deserves an Ennie for the most original and fresh 5e content in years. It was so much fun to play and all the new content made my players work hard. They loved it. Check it out.

Hi there!
I'm wondering what "Standard Edition" means. It seems to imply there is (or will be) another version of this?

On their official website, atlasgames, they have a deluxe physical version with a DM screen and a couple of 1 shots. The book contents themselves is exacly the same.

I purchased this title directly from Atlas Games, and I have already done a review over here:

To be clear, this is an amazing product. If you want to run a primally-focused 5E game, whether that's one set in ancient prehistory, or set in the Beastlands, you're going to want this book.

As a bonus, it has the scariest velociraptor I've ever seen in it! Have fun!

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.
