Earthdawn Fourth Edition Elven Nations (ED4)


Thorns, Spires, and Sails

Fractured and divided in the wake of the Scourge, the three great nations of elves stand at odds with one another in a struggle to guide the elven people along the correct path.

The Elven Court of Blood Wood, transformed by its desperate attempt to survive the Scourge, is the example Queen Alachia expects all nations to follow to be considered loyal subjects of her domain. The Western Kingdoms look to Sereatha for guidance, who remain devoted to upholding elven tradition as it has done for centuries. Years of isolation from the Elven Court have caused the rulers of Shosara to delve deeper into Jaspree’s teachings, allowing their culture to grow along with the world around them.

The great tree Oak Heart watches over them all. Tortured by the current state of its children, twisted by the corruption of the Forest’s Heart, and desperate to bring the elven people together once more.

Elven Nations explores the three pillars of elven culture, their tragic histories, and their struggle to define what it means to be an elf in the modern world. It provides a wealth of setting information including significant characters, organizations, legends, and more, to enhance your Earthdawn game.

No real world politics of any kind found in this book. No gender bashing, no ethnicity shaming and no status shaming. What an absolutely refreshing change to have a product contain none of it in an entertainment medium where one tries to escape from th [...]

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.
