Promised Sands (PS)
Survival of the Fittest
T'nah is a desert-like planet inhabited by a variety of different people groups each reluctantly coexisting and barely tolerating the other in an effort to survive yet another day under the unbearable, searing gaze of Ashik. It is an unforgiving world. If the elements and people do not take one's salt and water, then the creatures of the world surely will. The daily struggle to survive is nearly the only guarantee on T'nah, but if one should happen to encounter a Maroc or cross the wrong Merchant Lord, they may well discover other certainties instead.
Promised Sands is a dark, desert fantasy genre mash-up Setting that also offers elements of survival horror and post-apocalyptic undertones. It was originally published in 2003 by Bbrack Productions using the Trinary System, but Harsh Realities has re-imagined the world and applied the 6S Game System for a more robust and easier to access game play experience. The world of T'nah offers many character options, including many new Racial Kits, Cultural Kits, and Profession Kits, unique Powers such as Empathy, Ido, and Qai, and plenty of Sample Abilities for each, new Backgrounds, Edges, Flaws, and Qualities, and tons of new world-specific Gear. It also offers several unique Critters, Vehicles, and Villains, as well as a full compliment of Contacts and NPCs, and tons of adventure hooks and plot points to spark adventure. There are many Guilds, Orders, and Religions, and several Secret Societies as well. Though the technology of most of the world is somewhat archaic, access and knowledge of both ancient and modern Otec is held by some, and Otec is highly valued within the Souqs (markets) throughout the lands.
