"Eight Name-giving races dwell in the land of Barsaive, each with its own culture and traditions. Despite their differences, they are bound by shared experiences, beliefs and love for their land. Together they embody the heart and soul of Barsaive.
Dwarfs: stout and stubborn, the industrious dwarfs are the cultural and political leaders of Barsaive.
Elves: beings of deep feeling and spirituality, they seek to restore their culture’s former glory.
Humans: having lived through a history of destruction and war, humans remain versatile enough to adapt to any situation.
Obsidimen: ancient beings of living rock, these stone giants are perhaps the oldest and most mysterious denizens of Barsaive.
Orks: passionate and savage, their love for life is surpassed only by their love for battle!
Trolls: bestial in appearance, these gargantuan mountain dwellers are both firce and honorable.
T’skrang: flamboyant, reptilian beings, whose swashbuckling bravado reflects their zest of life.
Windlings: small, winged beings whose passion for change makes them mischievous and unpredictable.
The Name-giver’s Compendium offers an in-depth look at the eight Name-giver races, and provides extended information on fifteen new Disciplines, new talents and talent knacks, as well as special rules for playing each race. Requires the Player’s and Gamemaster’s Compendiums to use.
The Name-Giver’s Compendium contains complete information from a range of First Edition books, updated and revised into a coherent set of rules. Former First Edition titles include Denizens of Earthdawn Volumes I and II. In addition, we integrated some content from Magic: A Manual of Mystic Secrets, and the Horrors sourcebook. But the Name-giver’s Compendium also features a ton of additional content: new and revised racial Disciplines, new Talents, new Talent Knacks, and new Goods and Services."
Note: My piece on the Purifier Discipline was used in this work and can be seen on pages 205-207. While I was not the sole contributor to these pages, much of what I wrote is used. Unfortunately I cannot post my original submission because the hard drive containing it crashed in 2008, and I believe it would also be a copyright violation.
