Publisher's DTRPG blurb:
Beyond a doubt truth bears the same relation to falsehood
as light to darkness.
- Leonardo da Vinci
Welcome to the alternate reality world of Asiyah. Here, even the most fantastic promises of the Renaissance have blossomed into realities.
Dragons soar alongside Da Vinci’s flying machines, while wizards weave illusions as intricate as any of Machiavelli’s machinations. Yet, under all this wonder rot grows and spreads; horrors lurk amongst not only the ancient ruins but amongst mankind and within the human heart. Noble houses and factions feud, reactionaries threaten to destroy all that has been built in this grand age.
