In Ehdrigohr, tribal people in a broken world strive to unify while struggling against the horrors that wait for the night to fall.

Ehdrigohr is a Fate Core based tabletop role-playing game. It is inspired from the mythology and lore of tribal peoples from across the world but has a particular foundation inspired from Lakotah stories and folklore.

In Ehdrigohr you play a character struggling to survive in a recovering world. It is a fantasy game of high heroics, powerful magic, and survival horror. Every night at sunset, overwhelming darkness threatens the people's safety. The nine tribes must survive the terrible things that walk the land from sundown to sunrise. Magic is everywhere; with it, the people can bend reality to their will, or break it and unleash terrible things from the emptiness called the Twain.

There are multitudes of paths to greatness.

• A warrior, imbued with mystic martial arts who fights on The Line?

• A storyteller who keeps the peoples' spirits up and empowers their hearts to fight another day.

• A wandering peacekeeper that ferrets out the infiltrators and hatemongers who work to break the nations.

• A reality weaving Way-walker who travels the wild places seeking the breaches where the creatures trapped in the Twain have broken through the pale into the world.

Ehdrigohr takes inspiration from the myths and folklore of tribal and indigenous cultures around the world, with particular inspiration from the Lakota people. In this human-centric world, each of Ehdrigohr's cultures has its own magical flavor -- not "primitive," but interesting and unique paths to survival against the night's ravenous hordes. There is high adventure, political intrigue, social play, secret societies, monster bashing, monster fleeing, and more.

Mechanically, Ehdrigohr relies on the Fate Core system to deliver its fun and focus on dramatic storytelling. The mechanics have been tailored to the ideals of the setting, though you can still expand on it with ideas from other FATE-based games out there in the market.

In addition to being a fun game and an interesting world to explore Ehdrigohr is also a game of allegories. It examines our relationships with each other and the powerful force that is depression and how it whittles away at us, sending terrible thoughts that come when we are in dark places, bring us shivers, and cause us to fade. We hope to inspire people to hold strong in the darkness and fight your way through to a new light.

So please join us. Make a character, choose your place, and hold the line in the night.

I love this game! Developed by a Native writer who was tired of seeing endless fantasy worlds modeled on mediaeval Europe, and "tribal" peoples of any kind exoticized or treated as inferior, it's a post-spiritual-apocalypse world where all th [...]

Ehdrigohr is a game set in a fantasy world based (mostly) on Native American mythology rather than the world of Tolkien. Players take on the roles of heroes protecting the world from the horrors that come out at night, but there is a great deal of latt [...]

Simply put, Ehdrigohr is brilliant. The setting is impeccably thought out and written and is a refreshing take on your usual fantasy or post-apocalyptic worlds. The options for making a character in this interesting setting feels infinite. There are bu [...]

Kinda cool concept except... awfully executed. Feels like 300-odd pages of mind-crushingly tedious game mechanics , it even spends a couple pages explaining what a roleplaying game is. You know, because you might buy an RPG and not know what one is...s [...]

I kickstarted this RPG a while ago based on the premise--an RPG setting with a tribal feel, based on a lot of real-world cultures that aren't usually the subject of RPGs--but I only just recently got around to reading it. I shouldn't have waited so lon [...]

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.
