Generian Legendat – Valontuojat

by Samuli Ahokas & Miska Fredman

Published 2011, Available only in Finnish

generia-kansi

Generian Legendat – Valontuojat (Legends of Generia – The Lightbringers) is a high-fantasy dungeon crawling RPG.

Generia is a vast subterranean world inhabiting dwarves, gnomes, orcs, elves and humans alongside many other creatures and races inhabiting the endless natural and built caverns of the Generian underland. Countless generations ago civilized cultures of Generia fled into underground lairs and strongholds from a terrible enemy unknown to most mortals.

As generations passed, underground lairs grew into great cities lit by magic lights and glowbolete – luminescent mushrooms growing at the cavern ceilings. Tunnel-routes between the great races were established, alliances were formed and wars waged until the Goblin Wars begun. Goblins were a common threat that united all the civilized races of Generia. Many cities, temples and mines were lost to these irritating little creatures before their leader was slain and the goblins spread around the caverns. Many of these lost places are still full of treasures and this is where the player characters step in. In the underlands of Generia any adventurer courageous, strong or resourceful enough, has lots of places to explore, monsters to slay and treasures to loot.

The rulebook includes a short description of the setting, rules, pre-generated characters and an adventure that can be played as a stand-alone scenario or as a pilot for a longer campaign.
