Brancalonia is the all-Italian setting for 5th Edition role-playing. Set in a “back-to-front” version of Medieval Italy, this unheroic, picaresque and roguish world quotes, collects, and mixes references from contemporary Italian fiction and over a hundred works of Italian fantasy tradition, pop culture, and collective imagery, such as Collodi’s Pinocchio, Dante’s Divine Comedy, Spaghetti Western and other classic Italian movies, or video games set in the Bel Paese.
The Brancalonia: Setting Book consists of 192 richly illustrated full-colour pages, with maps, characters, antagonists, monsters, and other images evocative of the Kingdom. In it, players will find a general description of the Kingdom, its history and main regions.
They can choose from five new playable races, in addition to the Human, taken from Italian tradition and folklore: Gifted, Malebranches, Marionettes, Morgants, and Sylvans.
There are twelve new subclasses, each adapted to the Kingdom and strongly characteristic of Italian history, tradition, and folklore. Many typical features of Brancalonian Knaves are introduced, as are new Talents, Equipment, Rules, and Magic Items.
There is also In Search of Quatrins, a collection of six adventures set in different parts of the Kingdom.
