Silver Ennie for the "Best setting" category at the ENnies Awards 2010!
Alephtar Games is proud to present the long-awaited supplement "Rome: life and death of the Republic" for Chaosium's Basic Roleplaying. Written by Pete Nash, it is the first non-Cthulhu supplement for BRP that Chaosium licensed to an independent publisher. We would like to spend man lines to describe what is in this 220-page sourcebook, but it is certainly a better idea to let a more competent voice speak:
"Any game master who wishes to run realistic campaigns set during the ancient Roman Republic will be thrilled with the lavish resource that Alephtar Games offers. These painstakingly researched rules not only provide a staggering array of historically accurate details, but , more importantly, they succeed in evoking that sense of otherness we feel when we come into contact with a culture very different from our own. It brings republican Rome to life as a dangerous setting ripe for adventure, often stepping modestly aside, providing juicy excerpts from ancient manuscripts and letting the Romans themselves describe their world to us directly. Riots, bribery, mythical creatures and spectacular chariot crashes - it's all here!"
