Watermarked PDF


Based on Italian tradition, folklore, history, landscapes, literature, and pop culture, Brancalonia is a Campaign Setting for the 5th Edition of the most famous role-playing game ever.

Silver Ennie (Best Setting)

Enter the Kingdom of Brancalonia, a land full of pitfalls and money-making opportunities. Create your own band of Knaves, enlist in a free company, get yourself some well-paid jobs, deliver a fist-and-knife buffet to those who have it coming.

Once you have collected a tidy sum and somewhat climbed the ranks of your company, you’ll be ready to try your luck in that final job that could enable you to go out in a blaze of glory...

After all, what could possibly go wrong?"


In this book you can find:
- A general description of the Kingdom, its history, and its main regions.
- 5 new playable races, in addition to the human, taken from Italian tradition and folklore.
- 12 new subclasses, one for each of the basic classes, like the benandante and the superstician; the sword-player and the brigand; the miraculist and the friar. 
- New Backgrounds, Talents, Equipment, and Magic Items typical of Brancalonian Knaves.
- Secrets, threats, curiosities, places of interest, rumors, and game hints for the Condottiero, including random tables generator for Dives, Memorabilia, and Roads to nowhere!
- New Setting Rules: Dive Games, Brawls, Shoddy Equipment, Misdeeds, Notoriety, Bounties, Den management, Revels, and Prophecies.
- In Search of Quatrins: a collection of 6 adventures set in different parts of the Kingdom.
- 24 new monsters and antagonists, inspired by Italian history, tradition, and folklore.
- And so much more...


PLEASE NOTE: Brancalonia is a low fantasy setting that also uses game mechanics inspired by the "Epic Six" house rule, enhancing it to provide specific and fun rules allowing a conventional character's advancement beyond 6th level. A distinctive and original character progression characterizes the game at higher levels, keeping it coherent with Brancalonia's Setting!

I'm a late-backer on Gamefound. I was wondering if I could get any word on when the physical products from that campaign will be sent out?

I missed the Kickstarter, but preordered the English All-in-one option from the Acheron games website. Does that include digital versions of the books as well or will i have to purchase them separately?

Hello Jesse, the All-in still has crowdfunding exclusives you will not found on retail, so: good job!
The PDF contents are sold apart: you can buy those on drivethrurpg or on our website, where do you prefer.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
