Earthdawn Artwork Galleries

As I was searching the net for recent Earthdawn news I stumbled up a lot of Earthdawn artwork galleries that I want to share with you:

Earthdawn gallery  @ Sade

This is the site of Sade from hungary. The huge collection of Earthdawn artwork contains illustrations from present and former Earthdawn artists like Laubenstein, Janet Aulisio, Kent Burles or Kathy Schad. Beside the collection of artist illustrations you can find a category about maps from all over Barsaive.

An Earthdawn gallery about the japanese Earthdawn edition can be found at the french Earthdawn page

The provides a huge collection of the japanese Earthdawn artwork that is quite different from every other artwork you could find out there:

With the new Earthdawn 4th edition came a lot of new artwork into several books. This artwork was done by new artists that, I think, need to be mentioned too:

Earthdawn 3rd Edition - The Lost Treasures of the Codex Vol. II - Sirriens Bow of Precision

The Lost Treasures of the Codex Vol. II

Yes I am still here blogging about Earthdawn!!

Some time ago the first part of the series “The Lost Treasures of the Codex” was released concerning a place called ‘The Spire of Thaumaturgy’. There you’ll also find an explanation what the ‘Lost Treasures of the Codex’-Series is about. Please keep in mind that the series is based on Earthdawn 3rd Edition rules! And again: you'll find a PDF-file at the bottom of the article.

Well then, the second part of the series presents you a magical item called ‘Sirrien’s Bow of Precision’. The item description comes from Joeri Winkeler and the color images were kindly created and provided by Johannes Bech.

Sirrien's Bow of Precision

Maximum Threads: 2

Spell Defence: 14

Item description

Made primarily out of the same three wood combinations normal Elven Warbows are made from, the pieces of wood themselves create the symbols for True Air and True Fire in Sperethiel. Also in Sperethiel are the runes for Sirrien’s and Sarlindel’s names, inlaid with turquoise near the top.

Earthdawn: Interactive map of Barsaive

News from the French Earthdawn community!

Marzhin created an interactive map of Barsaive that is based on the Atlas of Barsaive by Telarus KSC.

Various locations and point of interest are marked on the map. The register on the left includes all the Cities, Villages, Landmarks and so on of the map and can be searched. GREAT WORK!

You really should have a look at the Earthdawn section of too.

RPG background music various sources

If you're a gamemaster who wants to add atmosphere to the game by using music, be it background music or effects, you might be searching your media library or the web without finding the 'right one'.

This topic came up already several times on the blog, be it the Free nature sounds or the article about the music of 'Erdenstern'.

The problem with this kind of music is that it often doesn't fit the situation or the selection is simply too short to enrich your game. So the more resources you take into account, the higher is the chance that you got a fitting song or effect in your repertoire.

So recently I stumbled up two links that seem very promising if you're looking for RPG background music:

Tabletop Audio

Tabletop Audio Logo

The page Tabletop Audio offers a very good selection of atmospheric and ambience music especially designed for RPGs. The various categories make it easy to make a good selection for your next session if you for example plan to play in a 'River Town' or play on a 'Volcano' scene.

There are of course major categories to distinguish between Fantasy-, Sci-Fi- or Horror-themed music.

Spotify playlist


The next link, that you should have a look at, is the Dungeons and Dragons Tabletop Spotify playlist that was set up by kingslayer133. The selection features about 500 songs that sound a little bit more medieval and as the title of the playlist says, seems to be a good fit for D&D gamemasters.

Earthdawn creature: Manra's Dismal Beetle

Short notice:

The Working Class GM offers a little creature on his blog that he made for his Earthdawn campaign. He was so kind to give me permission to share the Manra's Dismal Beetle PDF over here on the blog too.
