Yugman's Guide to Ghelspad Collected Volume (5e OGL)


Pay Heed to the Wisdom of Yugman the Sage

A century and a half after the Divine War, the titans lay defeated and scattered across Scarn and beyond. As the people of Ghelspad work to build a new world on the war-torn remnants of a fallen paradise, new heroes rise, and new threats emerge.

Yugman the Sage brings an overview of these new heroes and villains, as well as the tools they use to rise to power.

Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad contains:

  • 21 new Social Backgrounds expanding the sects & societies introduced in the Scarred Lands Player’s Guide
  • 23 new subclasses, with each base class represented
  • 6 new Races and a revised Hollow Legionnaire
  • New Spells, True Rituals, Magic Items and more!

Scarred Lands Players GuideA Land Where Legends Walk

Drawing enthusiastically on Greek mythology, the revised and re-imagined Scarred Lands nonetheless retains its place as a modern fantasy RPG setting. This is a world shaped by gods and monsters, and only the greatest of heroes can expect to be counted among them. The most populous continent of Scarn, Ghelspad, plays host to vast unexplored regions, hides unsolved riddles from ancient cultures, and taunts adventures with the promise of undiscovered riches hidden among the ruins of older civilizations.

Yet the myths of the Scarred Lands are relatively recent events. The effects of the Titanswar still ripple through the world, and the heroines and villains of many of these stories are part of living memory, if not still alive themselves.

Any plans of making this Print of Demand?

Yes, that's the plan for sure! They're allowing for some time to get errata feedback before putting it up for PoD...those who purchase the PDF will get a discount on the PoD. :)

Hey Onyx Path,
What issues of Yugman's Guide to Ghelspad does this replace and/or revise? I can't tell from the product description.

I have the first 4 issues of YGtoG. I just don't wanna buy any book that I already have the material for. Thanks!

"Great" Joke by Onyx Path! Invalid link for the free promo for guys who purchased guides earlier and seeing the discussion below an intentional misinformation by the company. Considering the text of the promo post, it seems they intended to give it out to all who did buy at least one or couple of the guides. Then when they recognised how many this was, they quickly changed it to 4 or more guides purchased. And from the discussion below it becomes clear that even those eligible for the "new" promo (4 guides) did not get functional new links. Grand move, Chummers, grand move!
Don´t calculate on future buying from me, Onyx guys! Not because I do not get the ebook for free as promised, would have been nice to have, but I do not loose sleep over it since Ghelspad is nostalgia for me. My beef is the fact that considering the text of the email we got, either one of OP wanted to do a promo and then got cold feet after the emails went out or it was deliberate misinformation to push our noses...See more

From what I've been able to tell, it was simply a software error and not an intentional "bait and switch" as you imply. I heard before the email went out that a discount was going out to those who bought 4 or more parts of the individual guides. Contact OPP if you bought at least 4 and didn't get working a discount code. They're doing their best to resolve this.

I bought all 6, so I spent more than I would have it I'd waited. But it also meant that I got the content early, which was worth it to me, so I personally don't mind. Not much different than buying something just before it goes on sale.

Hey any reason why the free promo email/link not working?

The discount link was only intended for customers who previously purchased the individual chapters of the Yugman’s Guide. If you did purchase those PDFs and did not get the corrected link in a follow up email please contact the publisher.

Why did we get that email then? It even says "As someone who purchased the individual PDFs, You get the collected edition for free!" That sounds like I get the collected edition for free. It even encourages me to click the link to get the discount.

Followed an email link to get the book at 0$... INVALID DISCOUNT: Discount link for (from publisher ) is not valid. Either it is expired (please contact the publisher if so), it is not valid for your account, or it is for a print option that is not yet approved.

I had this too! Only thing I spotted is I don't know if the discount applies only to those who have bought
the previously released pdfs before the collection got made? As I haven't bought any before seeing the email.

Same here, sadly. So it seems it doesn't work for anyone.

Also not working. Double checked to make sure the email didn't say anything about being only for the first however many buyers. Either it's a glitch or a really BAD promotion. Either way I hate being bated.

A code was sent in error earlier today, which was deactivated. The appropriate codes were then sent to qualifying customers who purchased four or more of the individual chapters prior to the collection's release.

If you are eligible, you should have received a second email with a functional code. If you did not see that second email, please check your spam filter. If it is not there, please contact customer service.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Fair enough, I’ll add it to my wish list.

Original electronic
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.
