From the campaign:
A world beset on all sides by this new Age of Menace sounds a clarion call for Heroes to stem back this tide of night. The Arcanis campaign setting is a grim, dark work of epic fantasy, modeled after the ancient world rather than a European medieval setting.
The Arcanis 5E Core Book is a 400+ page book, fully compatible with the latest edition of the world’s most popular fantasy RPG. It will be published with high production values and lavishly illustrated by some of the industry's most talented artists.
Arcanis first debuted in 2001 as a d20 compatible world setting and campaign. Now it’s time to introduce this award-winning setting to a new generation of players, as well as former fans, with a brand new edition.
The Kickstarter has already passed its funding goal (and then some) with still 26 days left to go.
