Against the Wicked City: Collected Information

Since I started this blog, I've uploaded a lot of material about the setting and system of ATWC. Like, well over a book's worth. So much that it's starting to get a bit tricky to keep track of it all.

I'm thus going to use this page as a handy way to keep it all in one place. I'll update it as I add more.

  1. Hello, I'm Yuri, an italian OSR DM and player. Let me say that your blog is aewsome, man! I visited Uzbekistan in 2015 and I was thinking about running a campaign in a Central Asia inspired setting. I'll plunder shamelessly your ideas!

    1. Glad to hear it - hope you find the blog useful! Good luck with the campaign!

  2. I'm so glad to have stumbled onto this. Brilliant stuff!

  3. I would love to have the opportunity to purchase this as a setting book.

    1. I'd like to put it together, but it's tricky to find the time, and I have no art budget. I may eventually put it all together using out-of-copyright images such as Ottoman miniatures and Orientalist paintings.
