The World of Planegea
The oozing jungle shakes with the thunder and roar of the barbarian atop the awakened mammoth. He whirls his enchanted bone axe, signaling the sorceress soaring above. She folds her wings and dives, ablaze with magic. Tonight, her spells and his rage will at last lay waste to the slimy lair of the tentacled tyrant-lizard and its corrupted brood!
Still vibrating with star-magic, the translucent elf scavenger—her edges dreamlike and indistinct—holds her breath. She carries her flint dagger in one hand and her offering of blood in the other as she descends, trailed noiselessly by her ever-silent halfling companion, into the cave of the bear-god.
His stony beard glittering with gemstones, the dwarvish fighter and saurian spellskin bow their heads to receive the clan blessing as they prepare to track the fire-giant slave-raiders. The great clanfire claws at the night sky and the shaman sings of rescue and dawn, but the rocky heart of the dwarf beats only with the drum-song of revenge.
Planegea is a primordial fantasy campaign setting, where a dungeon means the curse-painted caves of a cannibal clan, and a mindless, monstrous dragon is as likely to eat you as look at you. Gone are the safe hearths of taverns and libraries, kingdoms and cathedrals. Planegea is a place of utter wildness, where survival is the only law and it must be carved from the world by force of might and magic.
Slay monstrous creatures, navigate political intrigue, explore ancient ruins, craft enchanted weapons, infiltrate evil cults, battle, build, cast, carouse … whatever you want to explore in 5th Edition, it’s all here!
But at the same time, nothing is as you expect in Planegea. Elves are shimmering dream-walkers, dwarves are half stone, humans are beast-tamers, halflings are silent stalkers, gnomes are filthy scavengers, and dragonborn are just a heartbeat away from their draconic ancestors. Planegea rises out of our earliest ancestral memory, a world we can barely recognize, which holds all the adventure we can imagine.
Drawn from the traditions of sword & sorcery pulp adventures, infused with the blood-pounding thrills of the Fury Road, and caught in the jaws of primordial dreams, Planegea calls to those who've felt the cold wind raise a chill of hunt and hope on their raw skin. It is a realm where the planes of existence have not yet separated, and a great warrior can travel by foot from the Sea of Stars to the infinite, volcanic peaks of Blood Mountain. But along that way, you must battle everything – from cold, alien intelligences to the genie caravans; from the four empires of the giants to the roaring oceans that ring the Great Valley; from the cold, bony fingers of the Nightmare World to the terrifying jaws of the jungle known as the Venom Abyss. Planegea offers endless adventure!
