After a successful Kickstarter and then a challenging logistics period, the popular Italian RPG Lex Arcana as a new edition, in English, and even supported by freebies like The Island of the Dead Sand.
It is the twilight of the V century a.D., thirteen centuries since the foundation of Rome.
The Roman Empire did not fall as the Eternal City, in this alternate timeline, used her Haruspices, scholars and oracles to survive the chain of events that led her version from our world to ruin.
Stability and economic growth brought serenity and wealth to the people of Rome and many others even beyond Imperial borders are considered citizens of the Urbs, protected by the invulnerable Pax Romana. However, mighty and invincible legions and divination magics are not enough to protect the Empire anymore. Ancient demons, dark magic, sorcery and monsters from forgotten depths, all conspire to bring Rome down.
Dacia and Thracia
These are two among the darkest and most dangerous provinces in the Empire. On the one hand, there’s the dark and wild Dacia and Thracia with its barbarian hordes on the other.
Roman civilization is a pale light staving off the darkness, turmoil and bloodthirsty, violent beasts in these regions.
Ancestral secrets, nameless horrors and armies of raiders pushing on the border are but a grim daily event, filling both locals and agents of the Capital with dread.
Italia is the most sacred land of the Empire, but the realm of ancient Gods and cradle of Rome nurtures in her heart monstrous creatures.
Here there are ancient traditions shrouded in mystery and civilizations even older than the very Urbs.
