Larry Elmore and TSR alumni envisioned this fascinating fantasy world. All the traditional AD&D themes are turned on their head. Sovereign Stone exists in two editions, largely identical, save that the 2nd is converted to the d20 system, requiring the D&D, 3rd edition books to play.
Sovereign Stone Game System
"The Sovereign Stone Game System is an exciting new role-playing game created by some of the top designers in the RPG industry. The game is skill-based, using various die types for Skill and Attribute rolls. The world in which the game takes place is a medieval fantasy world created by fantasy artist Larry Elmore in conjuction with NY Times best-selling authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Sovereign Stone novels by Weis and Hickman will be coming out in the year 2000 from Harper/Prism. Elves, orks, humans and dwarves are PCs, with some interesting new twists to these standard fantasy races. Elves follow a Samurai-like code of honor. Dwarves are pony-riding hordes bent on world conquest. Orks are technologists and superstitious sailors. Humans are the most varied, with several distinct kingdoms, giving a range of characters from powerful knights to barbarians. Magic is available to all races and walks of life. Magic is rare, difficult to wield, but extremely powerful. The heroes are Dominion Lords, powerful and magical paladins dedicated to good. The villains are anti-paladins, undead knights dedicated to the Void who must kill to maintain their unholy existence. The world is in turmoil, as forces loyal to the Lord of the Void, the demigod Dagnarus, seek to conquer Loerem. Join those who seek to stop them--or to at least take advantage of the dire situation!"
Game Master's Screen
"This three-fold Game Master's Screen is a beautiful add-on product for your Sovereign Stone game. It provides a view of all the necessary tables and charts to play the game, along with a host of pre-made characters that can be used by the Game Master whenever needed. The outside is a full-color map of the continent. Included is an adventure to get the players going in your new campaign of Sovereign Stone. A 32-page adventure booklet is also included."
"The Codex Mysterium provides a good system for replacing the basic D20 system. I've never liked AD&D's memorizing spells, and have often come up with home-grown systems or use other third party systems. The problem is, memorized spells just don't match the way most fiction portrays magic. You never get to the point where you can just do simple spells with a thought, like you can with the GURPS system.
The Codex's system provides the ability to get to that point, and does it without sacrificing game balance. It balances the ability to cast unlimited spells per day with the chance of failure and a potential cost in hit points for overdoing it." ...from Amazon user "gawaine"
Bestiary of Loerem
"More than 120 creatures are detailed in this sourcebook for Sovereign Stone and the d20 System. Insects, marine life, and desert-dwellers are all detailed within by Dark Sun co-creator Timothy Brown and envisioned by the extraordinary illustrator, Andy Hopp. Also included are details on the two most fearsome creatures in all of Loerem, the elemental dragons and the mighty bahk!"
"Adventurers on Loerem have been astonished and dismayed to encounter a new race of creatures never before seen on this continent. Subjects of the evil demigod, Dagnarus, the Taan are a race of warriors whose main goal in life is to die in battle and to take as many of their enemies with them as they can. Worshippers of the destructive Void magic, the Taan are powerful humanoids who intend to conquer and enslave the weaker races on Loerem.
In the pages of this sourcebook, the Game Master will find all he needs to add the Taan to his campaign, including a history of the Taan, their religious beliefs, stories and legends, the unique ways they use Void magic, magic spells, weapons, descriptions of important Taan leaders and Taan Vrykyl, as well as their relationship to Dagnarus, the man they consider a god. Rules are included to play the Taan as Game Master or Player Characters. The Taan will provide excitement and challenges to players and Game Masters alike."
Old Vinnengael: City of Sorrows
"The city of Old Vinnengael was destroyed two hundred years ago in a magical blast that killed many thousands and forever changed the lives of everyone living on Loerem. Players in the Sovereign Stone campaign can travel back in time to explore that legendary city just days before its downfall. They can meet its people, shop in its fabulous markets, discover its treasure, encounter its dangers.
This sourcebook contains all the information a Game Master needs to use the city of Old Vinnengael as a campaign setting.
