Aetaltis
is a new 5E RPG campaign setting that rekindles the fire of classic heroic fantasy gameworlds. It's everything that made fantasy RPGs great reimagined for today's games and gamers!

What we're doing...
  • Sending out new Aetaltis content to every backer every week.
  • Sharing the majority of the content for free after you get an early look.
  • Making YOU a part of our world. 

This patreon campaign brings you even more new content, and it gives your character a unique gateway into the World of Aetaltis!



What We're Creating
Since May of 2018, we've posted new World of Aetaltis game and setting material to the Aetaltis site every week. This material builds on the world we first revealed in THE HEROES OF THORNWALL campaign starter book and then expanded on in the CHAMPIONS OF AETALTIS short story anthology.

We're continuing to create our weekly content releases, AND as the number of backers grows we'll increase the number and size of the releases. Help us grow the number of backers, and we'll send you more content, micro-adventures, professionally drawn maps, amazing art, short fiction, and more!



How You Become Part of the World

At any backer level, we'll work with you to create a character that we'll add to our list of Aetaltan heroes.

At the Adventurer level you'll create a 5E character using the Aetaltis setting material, and we'll include your hero's name in the Aetaltan League of Adventurer's catalog of champions.

The real adventure begins if you join us at the Fiefdom level or higher. At that level you get the chance to have your characters, ideas, and campaign incorporated into the canon of Aetaltis in the Open Beta of the Tales of the Free Kingdoms game. Build a castle, form a merchant company, establish a temple, or clear a brewhead in the Deeplands! With the guided role-play opportunities that we provide, the choices are yours to make, and the effects of your decisions have the chance to show up in the official Aetaltis materials we release here every week!
