Am I the only one who enjoys the Scarred Lands setting here?

We have two threads in this forum so far:
[Scarred Lands] Thoughts anyone?
[Scarred Lands] The Serpent Amphora trilogy

So, I guess the answer is that there is some love.

Feel free to restart those threads, or start up a new topic. Please add "[Scarred Lands]" to any new Scarred Lands related thread you start up here, as this is a multiple-setting forum and tags will make things easier for other users.

I think I have one or two setting books for Scarred Lands lying around somewhere. I picked up a bunch of stuff at a sale a few years back.

So what makes the setting cool? :)

Its pretty dark & depressing as worlds go (although not to Midnight levels); I think a good half of the first continent is the domain of a fairly tyrannical empire, the rest was blasted wastelands. ;)

The two biggest things I like about it are 1) most of the main continent is untamed wilderness where adventurers can make their mark, and 2) the setting has an interesting metaplot. In many ways it feels a lot like Exalted and World of Warcraft combined but in a more manageable package.

Another way of looking at it is that the Scarred Lands were the prototype for the Points of Light concept that is a big element of 4E.

I keep a bunch of Scarred Lands books around for ideas and inspiration. But I have my name in Relics and Rituals 2 so I may be a bit prejudiced.

I sent in like 14 spells for rangers and I think they actually used a few. I know the spells Eyes of the Hawk, Ears of the Wolf and Shocking Missile were mine even if they edited things around a bit.

Kodyax, are you there? We are talking about Scarred Lands.

I"m here, I just have been distracted a bit by a lot of things. But I liked a lot of what was done in the Scarred Lands although now with it being a dead setting I got rid of a lot of the material I had. I kept the books of magic, the monster books and those locations I thought were really good. And then sold most of the rest. Partially because I was also moving at the time and didn't think I had the room for it in the new place.

Looks like there are way more than enough threads for a Scarred Lands forum here...

Who will petition for one for Ash? :)

No setting is completely dead as long as it has fan support. That said, I completely understand about the space thing.

I think Big Mac should. He is the one who has been really pushing the effort over on Facebook.

One of the other things about Scarred Lands is that some of the ideas it put forth have been incorporated into Pathfinder. High and low gorgons are something I kind of wish were ported over and I know a lot of the monsters from Tome of Horrors are slowly but sure getting incorporated mainstream into Golarion, the world of the Pathfinder RPG. There are lessons to be learned from the Scarred Lands but right now, but right now there are other settings I find more interesting. SpellJammer for instance.

Any setting I can borrow stuff from and use in my game is useful to me, I`m sure there are Scarred Lands things that can make there way to my Game. :D

No argument here on that point which is why I keep some books around as they are too good to let go like the monster books. In any variation of D&D no GM can have too many monsters.

Quite honestly I`ll raid anything I can for ideas and out and out stuff, The game maybe 2e AD&D but I`ve certainly open Rolemaster, Traveller,. GURPS or anything else I can think of.
I`ve found that some Traveller deckplans make good derelict ships for Spelljammer.

I'm actually going through what's left of the sourcebooks I haven't sold to see what I can steal for my Pathfinder games.
