Into the Cess and Citadel + PDF

Roads beyond counting and buildings that block the very sun. A city that stretches without measure and whose secrets are without number...

A sprawling metropolis, built on the bones of cities long forgotten, it is as every bit as colorful and chaotic as it is deadly and unforgiving. It is ruled from the glistening Spires above; The Nobles, demigods of flesh made gold, who’s tyrannical whims ebb and flow like bloody tides across the city. Yet, as tall as the city towers above, so too does it descend below, where dark and terrible things roil with hunger beneath the cobblestone streets...

This city eats people. Never forget that.


About the book:

Into the Cess and Citadel contains information, tools, and tricks for both players and Game-masters. For players, there are a multitude of options to travel and explore the city, from the squalid Undercity below to the decadent Spires above, each requiring a different approach to survive their hardened and blood-stained passages. Along the way will be complex factions to befriend or combat, along with opportunities to exploit for the many treasures that await in the eclectic districts. Finally, there are a multitude of strange artifacts and cobblestone magics, each embodying the chaotic and frightening nature of the city.

We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
