Welcome to Proteus, A world unique in role-playing games, in that it is much more than a map of monsters and where to find them. Within the pages of this tome exists a world of fantasy complete with many myriad cultures and people with which to interact, and new and bizarre races to play. The magic system is detailed, the spells difficult to master but powerful in the hands of a veteran. The world abounds with colorful religions with deities that do more than pose for works of art and suck up your tithes. Mysteries and conspiracies lurk around every corner. It is a world enriched with original fantasy elements balanced by the fatal consequences of harsh reality. It is a severe deviation from the standard of Tolkien's classic settings. Experience for yourself this world of intrigue and heroics.
