Atlas of Eslin Released for Epic RPG

Posted on June 24, 2008 by Flames

Dark Matter Studios, producer of the well-received fantasy rpg Epic Role Playing, has released its latest offering, the Atlas of Eslin. Weighing in at over 300 pages, the Atlas contains eight continents’ worth of diverse cultures, compelling story hooks and varied professions.

A companion to the Epic RPG Game Manual, the Atlas is designed to be used by GMs and players as a complete and ready-to-play campaign world or as a modular salad bar of ideas for homebrew settings.

“One of the most vocal requests we’ve had from fans in the past few years was for a wider range of opportunities and backgrounds for their characters. So we packed eight different continent-size arenas for adventure into a very reasonably priced volume,” commented Kent Davis, one of the two principal partner/designers.

“Each of these realms is designed to support divergent play-styles, hooks and adventures. Desert nomads? Oppressed peoples? Stone age tribes? Sweeping empires? Theocratic republics with living gods? No problem. We’ve also provided a GMs’ toolbox chapter full of thematic and organizational hooks for each realm, as well as detailed examples of population centers and loads of other supporting material.”

The Atlas is completely compatible with the Epic Role Playing ruleset contained in the Game Manual, and offers over two hundred culturally defined professions to characters starting off on their road for adventure.
