Description Edit | History

Lex Arcana

It's the year 1229 AUC (Ab Urbe Condita, Since the City was Founded). The Roman Empire is far from being in crisis, but it is still besieged by barbarians all around the limes (the border). Furthermore, magic does exist and pervades both the Roman Empire and its neighbours, becoming in itself a weapon of diplomacy and war. Mythical creatures live in the woods and mountains and the sea travel is endangered by storms and monsters.

In this scenario, the Emperor Theodomire decides to create the Cohors Arcana, a special cohorts dedicated to paranormal investigations both in and around the Empire.

Players may choose one of the several Cursus (i.e. career) ranging from the Diplomat to the Warrior, the Scout, or the Mage. Magic is a ritualistic force, not the "cast and forget" of some high fantasy settings, and mainly of a divinatory nature. The adventures are mainly investigative, but combat is always behind the corner.

The premise of Lex Arcana is that, through the use of magic, the Roman Empire never fell. Players take on the role of the Cohors Auxiliaria Arcana: the elite forces that are tasked with defending the Empire from magical threats both within and without. They can come from and travel the width of the Empire, creating sprawling campaigns for veterans and newcomers ali

Lex Arcana will launch on Kickstarter on September 18th, 2018, ensuring that this product is available to as wide of the world as possible. Advanced starter-set copies will be going out to journalists and reviewers of the industry to give newcomers the best view of this complex game and world. The mechanics of this game include the ability to swap dice on the fly, making the game accessible to all styles of gamers.

This new edition will launch in multiple languages and markets, including English for the North American market.
