What is Realms of Atrothia: Primary Expansion?

Featuring over 300 pages of expanded player content, including new archetypes, classes, feats, gear, magic items, races, and spells, all new game mechanics, such as the Ascended system for running a game beyond 20th character level, and the Realms campaign setting, Realms of Atrothia: Primary Expansion is sure to capture the imaginations of players, and GMs alike.

Enjoy Realms of Atrothia: Legacy Races Revisited, but looking for more races to choose from? Don’t worry, all 56 of the updated and re-balanced Legacy Races, as well as your favorite races which pack a little more punch will make an appearance in Realms of Atrothia: Primary Expansion, alongside other monstrous races including gargoyle, medusa, moon-beast, oni, and treant, just to name a few. These normally off-limits races will take advantage of the new Exemplar Primary Class, so you can play all your favorites right from 1st character level!

Looking for adventure? Featuring the “Realms” Campaign Setting, you can adventure through a whole new world where lost civilizations, unexplored jungles, and political intrigue abound. Dine with the Hegemony of Kalmarune's vampire aristocracy. Contend with the Trennian Empire's claim of national superiority through widespread use of black powder. Push back the ever-expanding armies from the forsaken lands of Xer-Kol whose fanatical peoples serve the whims of the god of corruption bound within their borders, Xeronoth. Pass through the Worldwell, and explore planets located all over the incomprehensible vastness of the Material Plane, discovering everything from new forms of life, to new deities. The Realms of Atrothia await.

Our Story

Sunburst Games began with a simple vision: Continue a legacy.

For over 35 years, Tabletop RPGs have inspired us to be something more than ourselves, to be heroes, villains, and sometimes even a little bit of both. They have forged friendships, made unforgettable memories, and even the allowed the most timid among us to feel the freedom of being an outspoken, confident bard, or an unrelenting barbarian.

Sunburst Games is proud to continue on this legacy, inspiring a whole new generation with limitless imagination.

Our Vision

Sunburst Games was established to ensure the legacy of d20 compatible RPGs, namely the 1st edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, can continue on for years to come. We aim to create original, exciting, and inspired products of only the highest quality, with stunning artwork, well-balanced character options, and unforgettable stories.

Artwork Preview

All our artwork is done by Rigrena, whose works are seen on all our promotional materials, and within our existing product Realms of Atrothia: Legacy Races Revisited. Some examples of the quality and style which will fill dozens of pages within Realms of Atrothia: Primary Expansion can be seen below in our Character Artwork representing the Signature Heroes.

Risks and challenges

Creating a full expansion involves a number of challenges, including time constraints on writing, playtesting, artwork, printing, and numerous other factors. The expected digital release in August and hardcover release in September fits within the production timeline, however as we are still a small start-up, unforeseen illnesses or other unfortunate events involving our writers or artist pose the risk of potential delays during the creation stage. We will be open and upfront with any changes to the timeline for release, and work to meet the provided deadlines to the best of our ability.

The book printing and binding will be done through Friesens Corporation, an employee-owned Canadian company which has produced high-quality results with top publishers and manufacturers around the world since 1907. Their expertise, reliability, and premium quality printing and book binding will ensure there are no issues with the manufacturing stage leading into the finished product.
