The young nobleman Kalen Avanir, accompanied by his cousin Jad, journeys from his war-torn homeland of Rhakhaan in the north to the canal city of Sel-kai across the sea. On his journey, he discovers a mysterious artifact with strange powers: an amulet with a phoenix symbol, the emblem of his kingdom. Soon, forces for good and evil are drawn to him… and to the amulet. While seeking to understand the powers of the item he carries—and his own place in this tangled net of intrigue, Kalen finds plots everywhere in Sel-kai, and the terrifying agents of the Iron Wind from the north are closing in. Meanwhile, other factions from the Loremasters to the Dragonlords are seeking the amulet and other ancient artifacts with increasing urgency. Kalen must master the phoenix—and his own fledgling magical powers—before it is too late.

Loremaster Legacy is set on the Shadow World, where magic competes against brute force of arms, where political intrigue can be found within every realm, and where warfare between neighbor countries is commonplace. 

A few fight against the chaos, led by the Loremasters. Meanwhile, other forces encourage a descent into darkness. Counted among these are the terrifying Priests and Messengers of the Iron Wind.

Then there are the Navigators, who aid in travel and exploration across the treacherous planet. But some believe these guides really only seek the artifacts of the ancient Essaence Lords, the long-extinct race who predate the current inhabitants of this world. It is said that the Lords possessed magic far greater than the mightiest sorcerers of the current day… and something else: technology. Certain groups of the Elves have been experimenting with technology of their own, building mechanical devices and vehicles that fly in the air. Others call this meddling with machines to be dangerous blasphemy, and that it was the cause of the fall of the Essaence Lords.

But perhaps the greatest threat of all to the Shadow World is the very energy that grants the gift of magic; the inhabitants call the manifestations of this the Flows of Essaence. When these flows build up to a critical point, they burst into storms that not only disrupt mundane weather and the powers of those using magic, but also rip open portals to other places and other planes, allowing unspeakable creatures to enter.

Struggling to save their world are a few survivors of the ancient race, and a handful of young men and women just discovering their unusual gifts, and a heavy legacy laid upon them, the Legacy of the Loremasters.

Loremaster Legacy is a new novel set in the Shadow World, from the co-designer of Rolemaster and Spacemaster, and author of the acclaimed Spy in Isengard.

I would divide this book in 3 parts. In the first part you have the travels of a pair young cousins, who are super naive, a bit gay and extremely boring, they find an artefact the same way you could find some coins on the floor and they flee the [...]

I put off reading this for some time, but I wish I hadn't after reading it. This intricate tale gripped me from the start and drew me effortlessly into this incredibly complex and detailed world. Honestly it still holds my thoughts several hours afte [...]

This is the beginning of a story that gives a great understanding of how things work in Shadow World. The history, politics and societies that are just list of events in a GM book come to life and make a lot of sense. It's a must read for those who hav [...]

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.
