Warlords of Atlantis


A new BARBARIC setting! Battle Atlantean spearmen, Greek pirates, lionmen and mammoth-riding archers! Welcome to an antediluvian world, where Atlantis in all its decadence has not got long to live. It is epic and dark, full of demonologists, Ice Age tribes and pyramids. Conflict is everywhere ... your swords are needed. 

Beyond the known ages of Man, the great kingdoms of Atlantis fight to retain their supremacy against an uprising of new cities and new people. Their powerful civilisation depends on raw materials from within the Inner Sea, but the rise of Greek states there, troublesome, quarrelsome and belligerent, is pushing the Atlantean warlords to the brink of war.

This antediluvian setting is for Stellagama's rules-light BARBARIC RPG. Inside you will find: 

  • A short history of Atlantis and its current troubles
  • Maps
  • Sorcerous cults
  • Decadent cities of slaves, pyramids and gladiators
  • Ice Age hunter-gatherer tribes
  • Sunstones powering arcane machines
  • Custom character cultures
  • Archetypes
  • Two New Traits
  • Optional Close Combat Rules
  • Sorcery based on demon-summoning
  • Gods and their priests
  • New creatures, from griffins to cyclops, deep ones to sabre-tooth cats. 
  • Sea travel rules
  • Location ideas, NPCs and a campaign premise
  • Finally, 1930s pulp characters to drop into this Atlantean world!

Paul - I love anybody who wants to do something properly antediluvian. I don't know if it was your intent, but this feels to me like a Traveller-dude doing his personal version of the classic Arcanum-Atlantis. I'm curious, though: why have the Atlanteans culturally-colonized by non-Atlanteans? That seems a bit odd, at first glance.

I was trying to do the jigsaw of who goes where when it sinks! Just fiction, but in this setting the Atlanteans flee east and settle as the Sumerians. But the Greeks describe Atlantis in Greek terms, so I merged the two ideas. Greeks aren’t Atlanteans, Atlanteans come from some other lost continent. And Plato does talk about a war between Atlantis and the Greek cities.

Plus I wanted the Atlanteans to feel a little more alien and remote, a Greek-based Atlantean civilization wouldn't feel that way, it would be familiar. The Sumerian culture with an undercurrent of terrifying Lovecraftian magic and cults, sets up Atlantis as an untrustworthy and alien super-civilisation that is due a fall ...

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.
