Harnmaster ~ Shek-Pvar ~ Encyclopedia Harnica Series ~ Harnlore
Harn is a fantasy campaign setting, first & foremost. It is based roughly on medieval Europe, with seven countries: Five feudal, one democracy and one nordic-style. The emphasis is on realism, with magic & fantastic elements muted. Actually a continent, Harn was one of the most detailed settings in print in the early 80s. Different culture/region books got color ads in the Dragon Magazines of the time. In terms of richness and detail, the setting was way ahead of its time, and still an attractive setting today.

The dwarves made her well, and she endured the coming of men, their haste and pestilence, their greed and wars, yntil, that is, the tyranny of Lothrim, the Foulspawner.
Now gloom hangs like a shroud about Kiraz, sealed with enchantment and good stone. Her dark and cavernous, haunted halls, seem yet to ring with the muted sounds of hammers no hand has touched for six centuries. Even the woods echo with the voices of a hundred ghosts.
Now and then, an adventurer grown brave from too much ale, and greedy from tales of treasure, conies to Kiraz. If he is not enslaved or slain by the Equani or gargun, he will try the Gate of Hrazadar, seek other entrances, give up in disgust, and return whence he came - if he is lucky,
The hills surrounding Kiraz are home to numerous bands of ores. There is a major gargun colony at Ushet, a rave-complex just four leagues southeast of the Kiraz, Ushet is inhabited by a hybrid culture of Gargu-Khanu, and their Gargu-Arak and Gargu-Hyeka slaves. The Khanu, also known as black ores, are the largest, strongest, and most murderous of the five gargun species.
The Horns of Ikarus
Kiraz is also the scene of the second quest m the epic search for the mysterious, otherworld, arch-mage, Panaga. In the first quest, The Staff of Fanort, players were introduced to Panaga's misdeeds; in this quest they will come to realize that he is their nemesis. Compatible for all rule systems."

A Hârnic Murder Mystery
A stormy day in early winter. Gusts of wind whip up the powdery snow cloaking Ternu Heath in a mantle of white. A lone group of travelers hurries to a remote Laranian abbey to escape the merciless weather. The powers of fate have chosen them to become involved with a series of violent murders at the abbey.
Chendy is an abbey of the Laranian Order of Hyvrik, held from the Bishop of Ternula. Someone is killing clerics of the abbey. But why isn't there a corpse to be found after each murder? Are there in fact really any murders, or is someone playing a devious game? Why are the other noble guests of the abbey so chilly and remote? Has the time of the final battle between Larani, the shining guardian of Dolithor, and Agrik, the Lord of the Four Horsemen finally come, fulfilling an ancient dark prophecy? In an atmosphere of fear, mistrust, political intrigue, and religious hysteria, the characters must discover the answers to these questions if they hope to survive. Dead of Winter contains detailed descriptions of a Laranian abbey and village situated on the southern edge of the Ternu Heath in Kanday. The complicated political situation in Kanday and the kingdom's difficult relations with its neighbors impact the plot. Gamemasters will find this module a valuable aid when designing further adventures in western Hârn.

100 Bushels of Rye
"100 Bushels of Rye is an adventure module for Hârnmaster, but it is sufficiently generic to be adapted to most other rule systems. The adventure is set in Kaldor, a feudal kingdom in eastern Hârn. It's a gloomy, overcast, autumn day in Olokand. Sir Maldan Harabor, Sheriff of Meselynshire, has been informed by the local chapter of the Miners' Guild that the Amba Mine in the west of his shire has been closed due to a mysterious outbreak of violence. Several murders have occurred, and to make matters worse, unconfirmed rumors indicate the crimes have spread to the nearby village of Loban itself. A written request for information from Sir Kathel Dezaller, lord of Loban manor, has been ignored. Sir Maldan is anxious to see that the mine is re-opened before his own lord, the King of Kaldor, starts asking some embarrassing questions. He is also worried that Loban's annual feudal obligation, namely 100 bushels of rye, has not yet been received. Harvest time has passed, and this debt has always been delivered by this time in past years. He would be a lot more worried if he knew the truth. The players must investigate the violence at Loban manor and Amba mine, and then if possible solve the mystery. The village of Loban has been mapped and described in some detail. The module will give your players a better understanding of rural life on Hârn, in addition to a scare or two."

The inn lies on the western edge of Chelmarch, a vast territory claimed by the Kingdom of Kaldor, but controlled by the warlike Chelni barbarians, The Thardic Senate also covets Trobridge. Trobridge is controlled by two rival factions. Terlin Wesindan holds the inn and employs mercenaries to oppose Kurson Ondailis, a warlord who exacts tribute from locals and caravans. Into this volatile situation arrive two official embassies, a herald from Kaldor and a seductive priestess from Tharda. They have come to see if Kurson Ondailis is strong enough to control Trobridge. Complicating matters, a mad priest appears with summoned Vlasta, and warring barbarian tribes may destroy Trobridge. Pre-Generated Characters: Trobridge includes fifteen (15) pre-generated characters with HarnMaster and d20 stats."

Shorkyne: Regional Expansion Module
"SHORKYNE: A large feudal kingdom in the south of the region. Shorkyne has been a powerful lure to great empires, but has maintained her independence by military excellence. The kingdom always seems to be on the verge of falling apart, for it's a land where scheming, regional lords (several dukes of Shorkyne are far more powerful than Harnic kings) hold sway over a weak throne. But somehow, when the need arises, they have united to defeat invaders.
CHELEMBY: A small island kingdom at the gateway to the Gulf of Shorkyne. Founded by Ivinian warlords, Chelemby is now a powerful, trading city-state.
HARBAAL: An unruly confederation of twelve petty kingdoms paying tribute to Pendragon Trails Elendy. Harbaal is the most powerful of all Ivinian kingdoms. Many believe her destiny is to rule the entire region.
HURISEA: A region of petty fiefdoms, held by independent, ruthless barons. Sitting astride the mighty Tirga river, Hurisea has always been a lure for powerful men. Hurisea has been described as islands of chaos amid a sea of anarchy."
