Atlantis: The Second Age, a tabletop role-playing game (RPG) of sword and sorcery fantasy.

A sample of the core book can be seen HERE

 A sample of the draft text can be found HERE

The Theragraphica is the final companion book for the role-playing game Atlantis: The Second Age. The Theragraphica details the adversaries and creatures that stalk the antediluvian world once ruled by the kingdom of Atlantis.

The lavishly illustrated book details creatures of cultural myths from around the world, each keyed to a distinct region to help immerse the players in the world of ATLANTIS. With the Theragraphica, no longer will the heroes battle generic monsters with no cultural grounding.

Why Should I be interested in the Theragraphica?

The Theragraphica is the book of beasts, opponents, and supernatural adversaries of the world of Atlantis. With over 150 creatures inside the book, Monsters abound for the enterprising Game Master, for the intrepid players’ experience. The Theragraphica is an ambitious attempt to root the game’s beasts and adversaries in a cultural context, giving them gravity beyond walking treasure drops and experience point bags. Don’t misunderstand, this is still a role-playing game supplement, not a scholarly text; just one that tries to go a little further.

How will this book enhance my ATLANTIS game?

The Theragraphica is the final book in the Atlantis trilogy of core books making an already baroque and inclusive setting into a deeply engrossing world of wonder and horror.
The Theragraphica is a robust addition to any ATLANTIS: the Second Age game. Within the pages are additional rules and a varied assortment of culturally diverse creatures that takes the burden of monster creation off the shoulder of the GM. The lavishly illustrated book also visually enhances the mood of the game by providing evocative illustrations to give the players an idea of what they are up against. 

What’s inside the Book?

Culturally relevant beasts: The creatures in the Theragraphica are and keyed to the stories, legends and cultures of the areas from which they originated. No listing in the Theragraphica is a generic monster, but a monster inspired by a myth of a particular culture and region. Monsters of Gondwana are inspired by the myth and folklore of African beliefs, while the adversaries of Europa are plumbed from European and Russian myth.

A Plethora of Pain: Over 150 creatures ranging from the mundane to the wondrous in an easy to understand template format making them easy to modify

You are now Echidna: Become a monster architect using the adversary building system to create almost any creature imaginable.

SHIPPING (the bane of all Kickstarters)

You may have noticed that there are no additional charges for shipping. This is intentional.

Because shipping cost is one of the biggest issues in a Kickstarter, this time around I have decided that the onus to pay the fair share of the shipping falls to the backer. I know that sounds harsh, but I’m actually trying to save people money in the long run. Rather than increasing the cost of each reward level by a static amount to try and predict total shipping costs, I’m completely individualizing the process. 

When the project is ready to ship, everyone who is entitled to physical items will be given a special coupon code that may be used to purchase the item for $0+shipping. 

I know this isn't how it’s usually done but this helps in several ways:


1- This helps make the Kickstarter successful and takes out the hidden variables created by the hardships of International Shipping Rates.

2- It takes some of the burden off my shoulders and allows me to focus on producing the game.

3-It allows you to know with certainty that the generosity you afford me goes 100% toward the project you funded. 

4- It allows me to ask for less money knowing that I don’t have to factor in 2-3 thousand dollars for shipping.

5- It allows you to control how and when you want your items shipped. 

Thank you for your understanding and your generosity.

Who will be handling Shipping?

Shipping will be fulfilled through Amazon

Starting with GODSEND Agenda, and HELLAS, I've created many successful Kickstarter gaming projects enjoyed by many. Now I am focusing on Atlantis: The Second Age..

With the help of other talented men and women I've created products for PDF and physical print and maintained a level of consistency and quality that rivals much larger publishers.


 The Theragraphica is done and the art is coming along. I intend to produce a complete bestiary for the world of Atlantis, one that will add color and wonder to the Atlantis: The Second Age role-playing game. 

  • The Book will be 150 pages 
  • Softcover book 
  • Black and White interior
  • 100% Awesome

  I’m not looking or even attempting to take this beyond the simple purview that I’ve set. I have a very simple goal and I believe it’s attainable.

Risks and challenges

Khepera Publishing is an experienced RPG publisher. I’ve produced several role-playing games in a variety of formats over the past ten years. This puts me in a fine position to take on the risks and challenges that will arise; and as with any project, experience tells me a few problems likely will.

If there are any risks or challenges YOU can think of that we haven't mentioned here, please write in and tell me. I’ll try and provide the best possible service for your help.

Thank you.
