A downloadable game
The year is 2202; over sixty years have passed since the end of the Great War and the Purge that followed plunging the world into a modern dark age. Since then man has struggled to rebuild, to find some fragment of stability they had before the generations lost to war. For most, the world is a cold and cruel place, the gap between rich and poor ever widening. The masses, undereducated, placated with cheap distractions and great television.
Under the static and the lies are other worlds, four Realms, the Dark, Grave, Slumber, and Verdant, places of fantastical beauty and horror. Secret places that share their gifts with those strong enough to take them. These are the Lucid, existing between the worlds and shadows. In the shadows, empires, known as Baronies, manipulate the world as they seek unknowable goals.
It is here that secret wars unfold, unknown to the Waking World. It is here that only the most cunning may survive outside the control of others. It is here that one may find freedom. All it costs is everything else.
Blending action, conspiracy, and horror into a unique world, Fractured Kingdom puts the players in the heart of the mystery from the beginning. Players take on the role of Lucid, able to tap into one of the four Outer Realms they struggle to survive in the industrial landscape of 2202. Every shadow holds the possibility of new nightmares, and not even one's dreams are safe.

Hello I had a question. There are sspecializations and abilities for archery but there are no stats for bows right?
Thank you for pointing this out. Somehow it was lost in the mix. Please consider using the following for your archers.
Bows have seen a resurgence in the aftermath of the Great War when advanced technology was scarce. In the wastes it's possible to find bows made of cut tubing, and plastic.
Bow Ammunition: 20 Arrows: PV 6
Thank you so much!
A lot of the page numbers for reference are just listed as (page XXX), but otherwise, this game is absolutely phenomenal!!
Sorry about the page reference error, it slipped past in layout. Thank you for the comments!
Was coming here for this after getting it in a Bundle. Is there an update I can DL?
There are a number of supporting articles available on the company website. If you are interested you can find a repository here. (Link) There you can find location ideas, character concepts and creation tools, in world fiction, and adventures.
Thanks but I meant more is there a version with the "XXX" page references added in that bundle purchasers can get?
Like for example some games I've gotten with DriveThru RPG will get errata or some other change and if I go back to my purchases page and re-download it, the updated version is what I get.
Sorry for the misunderstanding, thank you for clarifying. Fractured Kingdom was originally published in 2013, let me reach out to the layout artist to see if there is anything that can be done at this point. That may sound a little weird, but as a small indie publisher almost all of the work outside of the core writing is not done in house, pardon the unintentional pun.
