Hearth & Blade is a campaign setting and homebrew ruleset for the first edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Explore Yavmir, a frozen realm steeped in rich Slavic folklore. Delve into ancient ruins, acquaint yourself with strange creatures, and fight to survive in a world the gods have forsaken.
This book is not a complete roleplaying game in and of itself, but rather a collection of rule modifications and lore built on the chassis of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The twin goals of Hearth & Blade are:
- To create a fantasy world where narrative and history are entangled with the various classes, spells, monsters, and other rules that make up the game.
- To imagine a campaign setting inspired by Slavic folklore — one in which magic and the supernatural are rare, dangerous, and not easily mastered.
The Hearth & Blade core rulebook was initially released on August 31, 2022, after an 18 month open beta test. You can download the game on itch.io under the Mammoth Island imprint.
