HârnMaster Preview 7

Time flies -- especially when you're highly busy finishing up the latest edition of HârnMaster. That's right, it's almost ready for release, but there are still a few final details that need to be taken care of. We'll keep you informed on the dates of these last stages, but we're looking to finalize the PDF version for download in June, which will include bundled pre-orders of both Standard and Collector's Edition hard copies (those images to come soon).

On the upside, this gives us the opportunity of sharing with you another spotlight preview of the system. This one is about shamanism and is a response to a fan request. While shamanism was treated simply as another form of religious practice in previous HM editions, N. Robin Crossby always envisioned it as a 'grey area' between magic (the arcane) and miracles (the divine). HMK is finally addressing this idea by making shamanism a more specific type of supernatural activity. It is now the preeminent example of what is called the Astral Mysteries, practices involving out-of-body trips to the spirit world called astral journeys. Shamans usually employ the new esoteric skill Trance to reach such a state, whereupon they beseech great spirit entities for power they can later wield in the physical world.

Preview 7 consists of two primary downloads: the preview brochure containing an overview of shamanism and astral journeys (2 pages), and the first page of Kyho of the Kath, a sample shaman player character generated by Kelestia Production's Ken Snellings. The files can be downloaded from the Free Stuff→Previews section.

The first page of the sample shaman, Kyho, also introduces a new character sheet designed by graphic artist, and Hârn gamemaster, Paul Klassen. We're quite excited about his contribution and would like to share a blank version of his two-page design (included alongside the other downloads).

An exciting New Year for Hârn

First of all, and most importantly, all of us at Keléstia Productions wish you a healthy, safe, and happy 2024!

Secondly, as you might have already spotted, we have created a little addition to our website: a front page header containing three new links. The first one brings you to our new Current and planned releases page, giving you up-to-date information on all major releases currently in development and also listing all KP products released so far. The second link is intended for newcomers to Hârn, forwarding to our newly created Introduction page. The third link leads to a handy compilation of the six HârnMaster Kèthîra previews released during 2022 and 2023.

We hope you find this new tool useful. From time to time, we will update it with new links, especially near and after the release of HârnMaster Kèthîra, planned for Q1 2024. This new edition of HârnMaster and possibly other products as well will make 2024 a very exciting year for Keléstia Productions and for the Hârn line in general.

Thank you for your interest and support in 2023, and see you in 2024!

Happy holidays!

We at Keléstia Productions wish you a joyful and safe holiday season!

Be sure to check back on December 31st (UTC-8) for an update on our release schedule, including the new HârnMaster and possibly some other interesting products.

Out now: Kôrlúa Gazetteer

In time for the holidays, we release the Kôrlúa Map and Gazetteer, the fourth and final product describing the sub-continent of Hèpekéria. It joins the previously released Falânia Gazetteer, Elánas Gazetteer, and Menêma Gazetteer in providing a comprehensive coverage of all major realms, settlements, geographical features, and other points of interest found in this exciting region.

The product consists of two PDF documents: the gazetteer, following our established clear format, and the highly detailed map, allowing for customizable map views thanks to our popular layer system.

We hope you enjoy Kôrlúa as well as the entire completed Hèpekéria series. It's a fascinating setting filled with fresh new possibilities for adventure and role-playing.

HârnMaster Preview 6

We present the final preview of the upcoming new edition of HârnMaster, HârnMaster: Kèthîra (HMK). It is also the largest one. It takes a very detailed look at the system's character generation, includes an overview of all its attributes and skills, and even covers skill development methods during play. It consists of two separate downloads: the main rules brochure (14 pages) and the character sheet of an example character. The files can be downloaded from the Free Stuff→Previews section.

The material provided should not only prove an interesting read but should also allow you to start experimenting with the HMK character creation system yourself and to actually create your first HMK characters. The final version of this rules chapter will of course contain even more detail, additional material, as well as various alternative and optional rules to custom-tailor the system to your group's taste.

As always, we hope you like what you see and would be happy to hear from you. Let us know what you think via our forum, our Discord server, or e-mail.
