DAG0013 – Dragryi Book

For centuries the Dragyri have fought amongst themselves as much as they have fought the humans on the surface of Samaria. Now, however, they have realized it is time to work together and elect a Grand Arbiter. Old enmities still exist, and may not be put aside thanks to the appearance of the long-awaited Shadow Caste. This 240-page, full-color, faction-focused rulebook features:

• The story of the Dragyri – in addition to the narrative, there is a lot of background information on who the Dragyri are, where they came from, and how their society is structured.

• An advancing storyline – The Dragyri have played an important role in Samarian history, both before and since The Abandonment. This ongoing tale skillfully weaves the various threads together in a compelling manner.

• Almost 20 new units for the new Shadow Caste subfaction – Like their elemental focus would suggest, the Shadow Caste are a mix of lithe assassins and brutal nightmares summoned from the very depths of terror itself.

• New Faction rules that cover the way the subfactions are structured and how they may now interact.

• World-building art – There are a lot of great art pieces that really give a feel for the Dagyri and the lands they inhabit.

dag2401_dragyri_shadowcaste_amabilia

DAG2401 – Dragyri Shadow Caste: Amabilia, Arbiter of Chaos

For many, many years, the leader of the nefarious Shadow Caste has tugged at the web of characters and events that are spread across the desert sands of Samaria.

dag2402_dragyri_shadowcaste_gatherer

DAG2402 – Dragyri Shadow Caste: Gatherer

Skilled hunters and sly negotiators, it is the Gatherers who recruit disaffected Dragyri youth from the other Castes in order to swell their ranks. Their telepathic powers help them find their marks, and enhance their ability to remain in the shadows.

dag2407_dragyri_shadowcaste_greaterspiderling

DAG2407 – Dragyri Shadow Caste: Greater Spiderling

The Shadow Caste are always operating on the fringes, and keep everything very close to their chests. Consequently that have absolutely no faith in the slaves used by other Castes and instead call upon their arachnae minions to carry messages and disrupt the advance of any enemies.

DAG2219 – Dragyri Air Caste: Yovanka, Arbiter of Balance (resculpt)

Yovanka, Arbiter of Balance (and sister to Amabilia), leads the Air Caste. Like their elemental focus, she is incredibly difficult to pin down. In a society that favors males, and from a caste that is considered weak, Yovanka has had to fight tooth and nail to claw her way to the top. Now all that stands between her and the Grand Arbiter position is her sister.

DAG-MAP001 – Map of Samaria 2016

Matthew Weaver has brought this wonderful world to life with this full-color, glossy map of the known world of Samaria. Enjoy plotting your adventures across one of the most dangerous inhabited planets in the galaxy.
