Scarred Lands RPG Rewards

A world known to its inhabitants as Scarn, the Scarred Lands is a place of dynamic heroism, supreme villainy, and incalculable magic. Torn and twisted by battles between the titans and their children, the young gods —fought largely by monstrous titanspawn pitted against humans, elves, dwarves, and other “divine races” — Scarn is a world still wounded deeply by the Divine War that took place less than two centuries ago.

The Scarred Lands has been a favored fantasy setting since the release of the Creature Collection in 2000. Now, Onyx Path Publishing brings this cherished fantasy tabletop RPG back to your gaming table using Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition rules.

Rewards are sponsored by Onyx Path Publishing and new adventures by Monica Valentinelli and Onyx Path. Be sure to mark your desired rewards in the comments below!
