Alwion is an alternate version of the British Isles, encompassing what we know of as England, Wales, and Scotland. While similar in many ways to our world, in this land, magic abounds and the tales but whispered of in our world are all real. It is a place where enchantment and curses are common and the fair folk mingle with normal mortals, often offering up bargains that seem too good to be true (and probably are).

Join us for…
  • Over 100 new magic items, potions, poisons, and more!
  • Discover (and possibly collect) the 13 Treasures of Britain!
  • 13 new ancestries, including the hagchild
  • New sub-classes, like the Wordsmith, a sorcerer who uses their storytelling skills to survive and conquer
  • Over 50 new folktale-inspired creature stat blocks (both obscure and well-known)
  • Custom battlemaps for every location
  • New guilds and organisations to join, overthrow, or support!
  • Build or destroy Trust with powerful NPCs and guilds to unlock additional encounters, boons, and new challenges

It's a world that anyone can enjoy, whether you're an experienced gamer or new to the world of tabletop roleplaying, a murder-hobo killing machine or a roleplay addict who likes to talk themselves out of danger. 

What sets our campaign apart is its unique blend of well-known and obscure tales, twisted just enough to keep you on your toes. Every encounter is full of surprises, and even the most seasoned players will find themselves challenged. Whether you're seeking a dark and forbidding world or one where you become champions of the people and bring newfound prosperity to the land, Alwion has it all.

Join us on this magical journey, where every decision you make could change the course of the story. Discover the secrets of the ley lines, brave the forests and mountains, and become a legend in your own right. The adventure awaits, are you ready to answer the call?

By backing our Kickstarter campaign, you'll not only get early digital access to the sourcebook, but you'll also have the opportunity to support the creation of additional content, artwork and more.
