About this project

ROME - Anno Octavian: The high fantasy historical roleplaying game, that will put you in the action at the height of the Roman Republic. It is the place of gods, legions, dictators, and gladiators. From the underhanded corruption and greed of Roman politics to epic battles with Rome’s enemies and the glory and excitement of the gladiatorial games.

The game focuses on the Roman Republic at the height of its legendary existence. A time when Rome was the center of the world, and everything beyond its borders were merely places yet to be conquered. A time of brutal war between Cleopatra and Octavian when vast legions of soldiers clashed sword and shield on the fields of glory. Where Jupiter ruled the sky, Neptune the sea, and Pluto was master  of the underworld. This is where your legend will be forged.

  • Roughly $600 of the pledged money will be going to editing and processing for the book. The rest will be going to licensing artwork for the book. These are the two big portions of the book that we can not do in-house, all other portions of the project are being done in-house at our expense.

    Last updated:
  • The core rule system of the game is based on a modified version of the 3.5 OGL D20 system. Around 70% of the core rules have been tweaked for better game play, and adaptation to an ancient Roman setting. The class systems and armor systems for example have had a 100% redux.

  • At the time of posting the project here, we have roughly 60% of the core text finished, with more progress being made every day. I estimate the core text to be finished by mid February, and estimate the art and editing to take another month to 2 months to complete. At that point we will begin final playtesting, and the last wave of edits before publishing.
