About

Seven civilisations have come before, seven times the convergence destroyed everything, now you have a chance to stop the convergence before it kills us all.

You live upon the chalice lands a continent in the great salt sea. Your land is a place of vast plains, towering mountains, tundra’s and scorching deserts; each hides a secret. Yours is not the first civilisation to inhabit the land, many have come before, and those have all been destroyed by the convergence, but their destruction was not complete, and many hidden treasures can be found deep beneath the land.

Discover ancient technologies and magics, unique weapons and armours from any of the past civilisations as you adventure across the Chalice Lands.

When realities meet the convergence happens and can destroy the current civilisation, but as time has passed new information has been discovered, the convergence is not random, but an event designed to happen and during particular times. Can you discover these architects of destruction and stop them before the convergence destroys again?

The Hunters of the Chalice Lands is a Dark Fantasy RPG where the players take on the role of characters that are drawn into the greatest battle ever, the battle to survive. The world is very much a sword and sorcery one but as discoveries are made of ancient tech characters will acquire new weapons and armour, items and artefacts that many describe as magic but are close to futuristic.

Each civilisation ended during a period of its advancement that could fall before the current advanced level or to far ahead of it, allowing characters to have items which could give them access to research labs, military bases, magical towers and even crashed space stations.

The rules to the game are simple and similar to D&D 5th edition but lighter this means giving many of the options from 5th edition but with an OSR feel. To be more precise, the players will be able to choose Cultures, backgrounds and classes plus more, but gameplay will stay quick and deadly.

Like many Fantasy RPGs, the game has Humans, Elves and Dwarves as options with their cultures making each feel unique and different. The game will also have a wide array of monsters, NPCs and magic to make the world come alive.

Far to the east are the Lands of the Sun Dragon a place of honour and death with a constant war between lands controlled by powerful Shogun. You will play as a masterless Ronin travelling the land fighting beasts, bandits and those sent to kill you.

The game will run on the same system mechanic with a few extra rules regarding honour. A new background detailing the lands and cities and complete new bestiary.

The game will be available as a printed book and PDF and will consist of world background, character creation, rules section, Gamemaster section, Gear and Weapons and a Bestiary. The books will be in Black and White with artwork done by Matja Obrovac mostly.

Risks and challenges

We have produced a number of games and most have come out on time or before the expected date. We expect no issues beyond acts of god or illness and those are unpredictable. The plan is to release the game long before the expected date of July 2020.
