LIVING ARCANIS is an RPGA d20 System member-run campaign set in Arcanis, the World of Shattered Empires. The campaign world is developed and supported by Paradigm Concepts, Inc. through a variety of products, although participants are not required to purchase any of PCI’s products to take part in the LIVING ARCANIS campaign. For an introduction to RPGA Living Campaigns in general, see the official RPGA website. For an introduction to LIVING ARCANIS in particular, see the official campaign website, which is known as Onara Online. There is also a lively discussion forum dedicated entirely to the LIVING ARCANIS campaign, which is frequently visited by the campaign staff (who are collectively known as the “LIVING ARCANIS Development Team”) and by members of Paradigm Concepts (who are collectively known as “Team PCI.”)
This document includes rules to cover various elements of the Dungeons & Dragons® game that have not previously been addressed in the LIVING ARCANIS campaign. The rules and changes contained herein are considered effective for the entire campaign as of the date listed on the title page.
Please be aware that these guidelines, like the LIVING ARCANIS campaign as a whole, will change over time as both the ongoing story and the campaign setting evolve. Our commitment to you, the player, is that our primary goal with any changes will be to add options to characters (as more D&D® and Arcanis material is published), not to take away options. With that said, there may be times, however infrequent, when we may have to restrict choices that were previously available to preserve game balance or story cohesiveness. Know that we will only do so after careful consideration.
