Ultima Forsan Legends
Gather the Magnificent Seven of the Macabre Renaissance and enlist them into the craziest adventure of all history, a desperate fight against thousands of enemies to free the Pope King, held prisoner by Richard III in Ghastly England! COMING SOON!
So here's a bit of backstory of how this got published.
Ultima Forsan - Legends was released in Italian as a single book featuring two parts: part one features the seven scenarios mentioned above, one for each of the "Magnificent Seven". In each adventure, the heroes must, locate, negotiate, help, and in some cases rescue, one of the Macabre Renaissance Legends: actually Legendary characters that are introduced as NPCs. Who are they?
Leonardo Di Vinci, the most ingenious inventor of all history
The cunning statesman Niccolò Machiavelli
The Spanish soldier, poet and swashbuckler Garcilaso de la Vega
Joan of Arc, heroine of the French Reconquest against the Dead, brought back to life by a mysterious group of heretics
Philippus Teophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, known as Paracelsus, the Swiss alchemist and Plague Doctor
Glyceria of Novgorod, the Saint Huntress, slayer of the Dead in the Ruthenian lands
Wilhelmina Murray-Shakespeare, actress, charlatan, witch, and grandmother of a famous playwright...
Each of them is a mix of historical and fictional, in different proportions.
The series also spans through most of Europe, with the group visiting places in Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, Ruthenia, and finally Britain, where the second part of the book begins. And how are the heroes traveling through Europe? They'll fly aboard the Pinta, a flying ship steered by legendary sky captain Christopher Columbus!
The second part of the book is the Escape from Old York campaign, where players have the option of using those Legendary Rank NPCs as Player Characters. After all, the task at hand is a Legendary one..!
Now we're finally able to release the seven adventures in English, and Da Vinci's Engine is the first in the list. The other six scenarios are ready and will be published in the next weeks, one per month!
