Anttelius - Zartarian Ruins Generator

As I want Anttelius - A World of Warlock and Barbarians to be a setting toolbox to be used on the table to generate gaming content as needed, I wanted to make a generator for lots of stuff, as for ruins of past civilizations.

Zartarian Ruins Generator


The Empire of Zartar was the greatest human civilization that ever was in the world of Anttelius. Their cities were spread all over the surface of our world, but there were also some underground cities and, some say, even a city or two in the skies or in other worlds.

That’s why there are hundreds, if not thousands, of Zartarian ruins all over the world. Some are barely recognizable as anything more than a mound of loose rocks, but there are many that still maintain their usual configuration and even a few that seems to be in pristine condition even if thousands of years have passed since they were first erected. Their purposes, today, have nothing in common with their original design, and most are occupied with being better left undisturbed. However, being Zartarian locations, many search their depths looking for valuable treasures and forbidden knowledge. Very few actually manage return.

The Referee can use the following tables to generate some ruins for their game, determining the type of ruins, their original and currently purpose, current occupant, secret and a weird effect that is projected upon those entering them.

Dark Streets & Darker Secrets - Complete Game Text

November was NaGaDeMon (National Game Design Month), and I decided to create an Action Horror RPG using my system (updated with all the modifications of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells).

Inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, X-Files, The Chilling Tales of Sabrina, Grimm and many more TV Shows, comics and books, I quickly worte Dark Streets & Darker Secrets. It is written in a very direct and simple way, similar to Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells originally was, but with uodated rules and a lot of tools and tables to assist the Referee in creating adventures, NPCs, locations, artifacts, monsters and much more.

The book itself will eventually be release in partnership with Gallant Knight Games, but the text is already written and ready to be used, so I am sharing it here with you all! There is no official character sheet yet. I am working on it. But a simple Index Card will work just as well!

So here it is: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QlFYafvxvJAyk_zMgBNmC5TZ…

Download the final text and sheets of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells

Hello space hobos!

Layout is about to begin and I have a surprise for you guys: The (as of right now) final text PDF of the Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells, together with the Character Sheet and Vehicle’s Sheet!

With those, you can begin your crazy adventures in the Known Universe and try your luck under the cruel gaze of the Galactic Overlords. Try to earn a good amount of credits transporting goods or refugees through the sectors. Or even try to awaken a sleeping Star God to repair some of the damage the wars have brought upon our reality.

So grab your Solar Blade and ready your Cosmic Spells! We are about to go on an adventure!

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells - Complete RPG in Draft Text

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells IndieGoGo campaign ended about a month ago. It was my first crowdfunding campaign by my own (we made one for the Brazilian version of Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells to pay for a print run and some other stuff), and so far I am really happy with it (even though the currency exchange is quite bad for me, as I receive less for the dollar than I pay for it).

Anyway, one of the last goals of the project was to release a artless version of the game for free too, to make the game more accessible and easy to use. So why not share the current draft of the rules here too with character sheets to go with it. This way you all can play the game while we wait for it to be ready!

So grab the complete Draft Text of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells RPG here! It takes some time to load all the content, but it's worth it, I promise you!

Grab the Character Sheets here, and here!
