I'm asking myself: what was the aim of this product? That clearly doesn't show the strengths of pen and paper RPGs: the human GM who doesn't have a pre-planned plot and who can react to players dynamically instead of confining them to a pre-programmed set of possibilites like, you know, in a computer game. All bashing aside, the PDF is unquestionably a nice product.
As promised by watching the show, the setting is very captivating. Chapter 1 details the history of Valkana. Unfortunately, there isn't much new here if you watched Episode 0 of Wheaton's show.
Still, it's good to have it on paper. Next up is setting information finally something fresh about the three city-states: Nestora, Karros and Vorakis. This section comes with cool maps, person of interests and alluring locations. I especially like the duality of Vorakis: the city-state is ruled by either the statue of Lady or the Lord and depending on who's in charge everything is either benevolent or cruel and despondent.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this part, although it's a bit short 9 pages total in a two-column text layout. Chapter 2 details the Saurian race, the class modifications for Titansgrave, new talents, focuses and new equipment 3 pages. Chapter 3 to Chapter 10 contains the aforementioned campaign. It's well laid out and nicely organized. Visually, the PDF is a sweet-looking product. As you've come to expect from the TV show, the art is very beautiful.
The design looks modern and the text is easy to read two-column style, offset headers, stat blocks and block text. The maps look gorgeous.
The document is electronically bookmarked yay! Verdict In my opinion, the authors chose the wrong aim for this supplement. While the setting information is superb, the description campaign is something that isn't of much value to me.
I'm guessing that at least some other downloaders will have the same problem: they and the other players have already watched the TV show and must now decide if they can use the information which makes the bulk of this product. If you're the only one familiar with the show that won't be an issue, though. The City-State It is said that the ancient saurian empire had mighty cities in the Broken Spire Mountains, but they were shattered in the Cataclysm and consumed by the Rift.
Only scattered ruins remainruins and massive deposits of fulgin. Miners and prospectors flock to the Broken Spires in search of precious ore, while adventurers seek the treasures left in buried halls.

No matter their purpose or destination, everyone passes through the gateway to the Spires: the city of Vorakis. Vorakis was born in the early days of the Chaos Wars, when a collection of engineers, rebel mages, and refugees realized that the ancient ruins could be easily fortified.
The city was built to defy the Prophet Dhawan, and from the start its founders wove science and magic together to create an unbreakable fortress. Vorakis is carved into the base of a mountain.
Its great gate is lined with warding glyphs and flanked by massive blasters. Light, air, and food are provided by a blend of magic and technology; globes of cold fire are flanked by fulgin lanterns, and the deep thrum of air reclamation systems blends with the tingle of preservation spells.
Though the Chaos Wars are long over, Vorakis has never lowered its guard. The stone halls are patrolled by cyborg warriors and grim mages in ornate robes. The city has never fallen to an outside threat.
The one thing visitors note about Vorakis is the presence of busts of the Lady everywhere. In fact, all of these statues have two visages, one showing a gentle, human woman, and the other a stern male dwarf.

Periodically, the face of the Lady dissolves and the Lord replaces it. When the face of the Lady watches over the people, Vorakis is a peaceful place. The soldiers act only when they are needed.
Children play in the streets and laughter and songs fill the air. Things change 17 when the Lord glares down from the statues. When the dwarf is watching, the cyborg guards are brutal and oppressive, and the mages interrogate those suspected of treachery. When the Lady reigns the grand plaza is a place for festivals; under the Lord it is a stage for executions.
Despite the strange duality of the city, Vorakis is a vital center for trade. Its a safe haven from the many dangers of the region, and filled with opportunities for adventurers and merchants alike.
Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana
But those who visit Vorakis are wise to watch their step when the Lords power is ascendant. Rulership Vorakis is ruled by the mage Abin-Dula. In many stories, Abin-Dula is a fearsome tyrant. Handsome and vain, this dwarf lord is infamous for his excesses and his cruelty. Yet other stories depict Abin-Dula as a gentle matron characterized by compassion and devotion to the gods. In truth, Abin-Dula is all of these things: kindly priestess and ruthless tyrant, wizard and engineer.
Long ago two mages merged their souls and powers into a single body to defeat a hated despot. Abin-Dula possesses the powers of both these mighty mages, but control and appearance of the shared body shifts unpredictably.

Sometimes one personality is dominant for days or weeks, while at other times Abin-Dula shifts between sentences. Abin-Dulas right arm and left eye have been replaced with cybernetic implants, and these persist regardless of the rulers current form. Lord Abin-Dula is a tyrant feared by his subjects.
He is paranoid, lecherous and cruel.
However, he is a brilliant engineer and gifted military strategist, and his tactics and innovations have helped Vorakis triumph over many challenges.
Conversely, Lady Abin-Dula is loved by her people. Compassionate, wise and devout, she does her best to improve the lives of everyone in Vorakis. The lesser leaders of the city are split into two camps, each poised to enact the will of their preferred ruler; the Lords favorites slink into the shadows when the Lady governs, while the Ladys ministers do their best to avoid the cruel gaze of the Lords followers when hes in control.Is there space travel?
Am I the only one with the issue? Alongside the ebb and flow of travelers, the people of Vorakis are stoic and fatalistic. Does it have its own setting specific magic system?
Original electronic Scanned image These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. All Vorakin have their preference when it comes to the ruler but they are proud to be citizens of the city.
Ihonestly I was hoping for a mor post apocalyptic setting, instead it's just more cyber orcs.
