Brancalonia: Nothing's as good as being a Knave!

JUN 24 - JUL 1, 2024

Welcome to the Kingdom of Brancalonia! The world you live in is one of breathtaking adventure, heroic feats, and legendary deeds. Here, knights in shining armor lead fearless armies against terrifying enemies; skilled treasure-hunters, ready for anything, explore the forgotten basements of long-lost empires, juggling lethal traps and name-less monsters; cunning, mischievous heroines use their charm to deceive princes and merchants and steal treasures worthy of a royal ransom in one night! But you’re not one of them... you are the ones who step in when things go wrong: lazy swindlers, low-life scoundrels, listless dabblers, and greedy Knaves. Brancalonia is a low fantasy, light-hearted, tragicomic setting, deliberately inspired by medieval Italy, its folklore, literature, pop culture, and legends, from Dante to Pinocchio, from Leonardo to Sergio Leone’s movies. A brawly fantasy with “no money for special effects”, with completely new races, subclasses, new spells and monsters, shoddy objects and magical junk, ready to give the players – and the Condottiero (GM) as well – a very good time. Brancalonia is also the recipient of FOUR ENnie Awards (Gold for Best Electronic Book, Silver for Best Setting, Best Product, Best Writing), and has more than a dozen adventures ready to play.
