From the publisher's website:'
Set in 3000 B.C.E., a time without the myths and legends we now take for granted — because they either haven’t happend yet or are happening right now. Would-be gods and previously unheard-of monsters stalk the earth openly building armies and recruiting followers.
Explore ancient Mesopotamia and take part in the birth of empires and the dawn of civilization itself. In the process, the players will to protect a trade caravan as it travels from Ur to Nineveh. Along the way, they’ll battle the desert sun, be attacked by bandits, and kicked by the camels they’re supposed to be protecting.
While mostly adventure, this book is also a bronze-ages sourcebook for the Mesopotamian region, complete with a regional map, details on the cultures of the time, and minor rules and equipment modifications for bronze gear.
Thoroughly researched, Caravan is historically accurate, or at least as accurate as you can get while still having halflings running around underfoot.
