The Death is not the end of everything, at least not for you. Cursed soul, a journey full of terrors is waiting for you in Kisarta, a setting for the 5th Edition that will drag you and your party in a netherworld of horrors.
In this Setting Rulebook for the most famous role-playing game of the world, players will travel in the seven Dominions of Kisarta, a dark reign of struggle and dangers in which the dead wake up keeping some of the extraordinary skills that they had in life.
Welcome to Kisarta, a world of danger and horror, where you will face chaos, madness and damnation as well as deadly enemies and frightening monsters. The netherworld realms of Kisarta are ruled by unholy and terrifying beings, and inhabited by the souls of the dead that awaken there. It is a place of struggle, and every adventurer must face constant danger and harsh challenges.
Each player impersonates the Soul of a dead person awakening in a tomb near the mysterious City of Limbo. Souls must fight, plot, track down cults and conspiracies to uncover ancient secrets hidden among the forgotten ruins and in the minds of the beings that live there. Only then can they hope to carve out a place for themselves within the tangles of the Great Game, where true power lies.
During their adventures on Kisarta, characters will delve into those dark Dominions, the planes of existence ruled and shaped by mighty Guardians:
- The Crucible of Damned, ruled by Malphas, Lord of the Forty Armies, the Goleth Monster
