ACHERON BOOKS PRESENTS:
An anti-heroic land full of pitfalls, profit possibilities and little legendary deeds, in the most incredible Spaghetti Fantasy role-playing game you have ever joined, is waiting for you!
ENTER BRANCALONIA, the all-Italian setting for the 5th Edition of the most famous role-playing game of all time. This picaresque and roguish world is a “reverse” version of Medieval Italy. It quotes, collects, and combines together references from Italian folklore, speculative fiction and pop culture:
Create your band of Knaves, enlist in a free Company, pick up some well-paid Jobs, whack some chiacchierone and punch some bad dudes who deserve it. When you have collected a nice loot and climbed the ranks of your company a bit, you will be ready to try your luck, in that final job that could let you go out in a blaze of glory...
After all, you are in a fantasy version of Italy: escape from guards, taste la bella vita, and gain Bigmoney with some dirty jobs, what could possibly go wrong
The crowdfunding campaign will be carried out both in Italian and English and will begin the 20th of April 2020, but you can download the Quickstart Set for free by joining our newsletter here: http://bit.ly/brancaloniaNEWS
