The future of Keléstia Productions (is almost here)

Over the last few months, several of you have sent us questions about the state of Keléstia Productions and the future of our HârnMaster and HârnWorld lines. We would like to thank you very much for your interest, as it shows us one thing very clearly: We have been silent for too long -- while, indeed, there is a lot to share and to talk about.

Starting with this news post, we intend to change this policy. From now on, we will be more transparent about what's going on behind the scenes and will share with you preview material of products in development.

In fact, there are several works nearing completion -- among them a Palíthanè module and two Hèpekéria maps and guides. We are also finishing work on a new version of HârnMaster, and we're happy to report that it’s in the final stages of play test review, editing and art commissions. Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing previews of its layout and art and additional detail on the rules system.

Also, you have surely noticed the map in the thumbnail image -- this is our new Venârivè Poetic map by Marc Grunert. Elements of its medieval manuscript style and decor will be used in the layout of upcoming HârnWorld and HârnMaster products. Our regional maps, of course, will retain the great attention to detail and geographic accuracy that Keléstia Productions is known for and that you're familiar with. The new Venârivè Poetic map is free to download in full size in our Free Stuff --> Aids & Tools section. Click here to jump to it directly.

As part of this new product era, we will also finally reintroduce the eponymous "home region" of the HârnWorld line: the island of Hârn! A new Hârn regional module is in active development, entitled Hârn: The Misty Isle.

What's left is to thank you, our loyal fans and customers, again for your questions and your continued interest in our official and canonical Hârn publications. We appreciate everyone of you very much! And we hope that you are as excited about our upcoming products as we are.

We hope this answers the most asked question: Keléstia Productions and the official HârnWorld and HârnMaster lines are still very much alive and will soon enter a new era. More than ever, we are working on realizing the great vision of our founder, Hârn creator N. Robin Crossby: to provide you with the ultimate medieval fantasy setting and role-playing system.

Coming up in two weeks: preview material for Hèpekéria!

Printed products available again

As of now, the two printed products in our catalog -- the Hârnic Tarot and the poster map of Hârn -- are available again. For the last couple of months, shipping had to be halted due to reasons connected to the global health situation. While that situation itself is far from over, we are happy to announce that shipping of our products can continue in the regular manner.

So if you are interested in a physical version of the beautifully illustrated Hârnic Tarot cards or the highly detailed Hârn map, head on over to the Products section -- as both items are finally available again.

A message to all our visitors

Dear friends of HârnWorld and HârnMaster,

We, the Keléstia Productions team, wish you all the best during these trying times. We hope you stay healthy and wish any who are ill a speedy recovery.

For a while, roleplayers will have to find alternative ways to pursue their hobby. One good solution certainly is having RPG sessions online via voice or video chat. There are great (and free of charge) tools that allow you to do so. If you’ve never tried this form of role-playing before, you might want to check it out now. It’s still traditional gaming and actually very close to meeting in person. It allows us to keep a safe distance while still exploring fantastic worlds together with our friends.

At Keléstia Productions, we’re using this time to get even more productive than before. While we can’t promise anything given how fluid the situation is, you never know what surprises we may be able to provide for you over the next few weeks and months!

Till then: #stayhome #staysafe #bekind

Elánas Gazetteer - Hèpekéria's Treacherous Southern Straits

Elánas

Following on from our release last year of Menêma - Hèpekéria's Maritime Crossroads, we are delighted to release the second in our series of Regional Maps and Gazetteers for the sub-continent of Hèpekéria.

This product covers the Kingdoms of Árlanto and Xêrium, and the eastern part of the Falânian Federation, as well as tribal lands of the Naj'er Númec, the Búqdin, Elánasi and Hérei. The region is named for the reef-filled and treacherous waters that separate Hèpekéria from Northern Anzelôria - the Elánas - and consequently is something of a backwater due to the difficulties of maritime passage through these waters. This does not meant it is not an area ripe for adventure and exploration - quite the contrary!

This module includes an electronic map suitable for printing at 50cmx37.5cm (20”x15”).

Printed version of the Hârnic Tarot released

We are delighted to announce that after several years of development, a printed version of the the official Hârnic Tarot deck is now available for purchase in our store, alongside a new, revised 3rd edition of the Hârnic Tarot PDF module.

This is the Hârnic Tarot as it was always intended to exist. This 72-card deck features beautiful, detailed illustrations created by Elise Stevens, all as described by the original Hârnic Tarot. These cards are perfect for in-game divination, or simply as a unique collectors' item.

The deck measures 2.5 × 5 inches and comes in a drawstring velvet pouch. In addition to the printed card deck, this product also includes a free download of the new edition of the Hârnic Tarot PDF module, to explain the rules and reading procedures.
