The first of the two is a long-delayed Kickstarter called Lex Arcana set in an alternative world where, thanks to magical foresight, the Roman Empire did not fall.
Lex Arcana is designed by Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, both known for their work on The One Ring and Zombicide RPG, and published by Quality Games.
Ares says that Lex Arcana is shipping now.
The second is Brancalonia by Acheron Books. This 5e-powered Kickstarter “spaghetti fantasy” mixes pop-culture with historical references.
In the game, players are Knaves, members of a Free Company of mercenaries, rogues and rascals who accept questionable jobs to make a living. This occupation takes them on quests across the ruins of the ancient kingdom.
Brancalonia is expected to ship Q1 2021.
Ares’ move into wider distribution comes among significant changes to the American landscape.
