About this project
Sigantium has been funded, but don't worry if you missed it! You can still get the book, all the swag, and still make a part of the world your own!
Sigantium's custom contributions will continue to be available even after funding, through our website which will soon be receiving an update enabling this ability.

Sigantium Academy of the Arcane
The world of Sigantium centers around the earth sized floating continent of Masada where the fate of the world is tied to the Archmage academy at it's center. Founded by an immensely powerful mage from the future, in order to empower the mages of the present with the ability to avoid the coming apocalypse.
The classic fantasy you love, done like never before
Sigantium has re-written the origins and lore of all the base fantasy races integrating a thousand years of original lore shaping a campaign setting in an old school feel with exciting new innovations in story telling and magical culture. Role-playing dependent prerequisites abound for new feats, classes, and leveling options, exalting NPCs and rewarding role-playing with meaningful permanent bonuses and abilities depending on whom you train under, and accomplishments you have achieved.
Magic users with limitations unleashed
Fill every role an adventuring party needs entirely with arcane casters. Sigantium's new magic classes and options make it possible for specialized mages to be fully functional tanks, damage dealers, healers, stealthy assassins or one of the numerous new kinds of arcane characters that defy classification and use entirely new magic systems and suites of spells.
Spell customization system
Games and books have made efforts towards this end before, but Sigantium takes it a step further. Our system allows the arcane caster who chooses the right character options and devotes the time needed, to create balanced spells from the individual aspects that make up spells, augmenting and altering them with a spell point system that determines the required spell level to manifest their creations.
Sigantium spells are designed with augmentation and variability. This means the same spell could be boosted to deliver more damage, or vary its effects so no two spells need be the same. Similar in concept to meta-magic with less hassle and far greater flexibility. Combined with the spell customization rules, players and GMs alike will never become bored with the same set of identical spells clogging every wizard's spell book.
A vast world of unique magical nations
The scope of Sigantium's campaign world is massive, and spans numerous unique new nations that pay homage to many familiar staples of the fantasy genre, re-imagining them and interconnecting a thousand years of lore and history. From the drake infested sky scraping viking peaks of the Skarnlands, to the the idyllic rural expanses of the halfling nation of Osterheim, and everything in-between. The floating continent of Masada has over a dozen fully realized regions of wilderness and civilization full of magical plots and intrigue, enough to keep any gaming group endlessly enthralled.
Racial leveling options
All Sigantium races, base and expanded, have leveling options that allow you to take feats, class features, and entire class levels dedicated solely to the strengths and specialties the race embodies. Not only does this open up more possibilities for interesting new character builds, it also balances the issue of non standard races possessing broken and overpowered abilities for their level. Whether you desire to become a racial paragon of your culture's virtues, or simply seek a stronger hide to boost a few more points of armor, racial leveling options make creating interesting and compelling character concepts that much easier to achieve.

Sigantium is founded in the principles of compelling story and exciting game play with a dedication to top notch illustration throughout. We have assembled a team of proven industry greats that have defined whole role-playing genres, and talented new artists and writers with the desire to drive a new gaming renaissance with Sigantium.
Risks and challenges
We are all personally invested in our project that encompass over a dozen team members spanning 3 countries. We have built our company and product on principles of open cooperation and creativity to achieve the best game possible, completely backwards from the common corporate wisdom. The more custom content we take on the more involved and deep our workload will become pushing the project's fulfillment back further than we currently project. Of course that means a bigger better book for everyone so we hope for the opportunity to face such challenges.
Sigantium is more than just ours, much of the world and its inhabitants will be made by YOU, the donors, so help us conquer the challenge of bringing this massive new world into life with the power of our imagination and ideas combined!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
