"Red Steel forges into weapons of great power — Power that strikes fear into the most magical of adversaries. It is found only in the Savage Coast, where nations and races war among themselves, desperately trying to find it. With the search comes a curse — the Red Curse. It twists bodies into hideous parodies of their former selves. Only Cinnabryl provides protection from this Curse. But this protection fades with time, losing its magic. As it loses its protective veil, Cinnabryl slowly transforms into the powerful Red Steel. Survival and power in the Savage Coast are determined by the control of Red Steel. You either have it or you don't survive.
(Front cover text)

Red Steel. An extraordinary metal lighter than common steel, and more precious than gold. The object of quests and the cause of war. Only one place holds the treasure: the Savage Coast. This grand frontier is also home to the Red Curse, an ancient bane that hideously deforms some victims, while mysteriously granting powers to others. Here, player characters can acquire wondrous abilities, even as they seek to garner red steel, the key to power and fame!

Inside this box you'll find:
  • Two books totalling 160 pages ith everything you need to play exotic new character races, use the powers of the Red Curse, and explore the war-torn nations of the Savage Coast.
  • Three full-color poster maps (2504XXX0701 - 2504XXX0703).
  • An audio compact disc featuring background music to enhance any adventure. Created especially for the RED STEEL™ campaign, this CD contains 13 original compositions that can take you from a storm-tossed sea to a suspense-filled dungeon — over 60 minutes of music and sound effects in all, plus an audio drama to introduce the setting."
