Hi, everyone! I’m Marc Tassin, a gaming nerd who loves RPGs, scifi, fantasy, comics, and everything that goes along with them. These things have brought me so much joy that I want to give something back, so I’m creating a new heroic fantasy RPG campaign setting. The goal is to build a world that captures the essence of what made games and fantasy such an awesome part of my life!


Who Am I?
Aside from being a lifelong fan of all things nerdy, I’m also a game designer and writer. I’ve written game material for Shadowrun and Dragon Magazine, and I’ve published a bunch of fantasy short stories. I also published two books about my setting already, and since May of 2018 I’ve released new setting material every week over on www.aetaltis.com.


What Am I Doing?
I want to bring my setting, the World of Aetaltis, to life by giving you as much Aetaltis setting material as I can. Here's a taste of what the setting is about...

More than three hundred years have passed since the fall of the Atlan Alliance, and the people of Aetaltis have finally brought order to their fractured world. Fledgling nations have grown into powerful kingdoms, thriving merchant states have re-established old trade routes, and the priests of the Enaros have rebuilt their great temples. But in this time of hope, the shadow of an ancient evil is rising once again.

Deep beneath the surface of Aetaltis lurk the armies of the fallen god Endroren. For centuries, an order of holy knights known as the Warders of Alantra maintained powerful mystic seals that held the forces of darkness at bay, but when the Alliance fell, so did many of the ancient orders—including the Warders. Now, after centuries of neglect, the wards are failing, and the dark ones have returned.

For the first time since the Age of Darkness, orcs, goblins, trolls, and a host of other fiendish monsters threaten the good people of the world. They strike with unrestrained cruelty; attacking, killing, and destroying all that lies before them. The recently reborn holy orders have combined their divine strength with the temporal power of the new kingdoms to face this growing threat, but the dark ones are many and the defenders are few.

But, there is hope!

Lord Drakewyn of Agthor has called upon the brave men and women of his land to take up arms against their common foe. In response, a small army of independent heroes, known as adventurers, has joined the struggle. These stalwart men and women fight the battles ordinary soldiers cannot fight, go where the holy orders dare not go, and serve as beacons of hope in a world growing darker with each passing day. From hardened dwarven warriors to crafty cheebatan rogues, from fleet-footed fey scouts to mysterious Selenthean mages, these brave souls provide what may ultimately prove to be the only hope for the people of this troubled land.

Will you join these brave adventurers in their quest? Will you put spell and blade to the test in defiance of the Dark Hordes? If so, if you have the courage to take on this burden for the good of all, then there is still hope!

We need your sword! But here is the challenge...I want to bring Aetaltis to the world with the same level of quality you get from Wizards of the Coast, Paizo, or Monte Cook Games. To see an example of my past work as well as an introduction to Aetaltis, grab HEROES OF THORNWALL for free from Drive Thru RPG. That will give you a good idea of what I’m shooting for. Eventually I’d like to put everything together into a full setting book.




What Will You Get?
Each week I’ll post new World of Aetaltis game material here on the Patreon page just for you. Around a week after that, I’ll move the new material over to www.aetaltis.com for the rest of the world to see.

Every few months, I’ll also send you a professionally formatted PDF of material that you can use in your own Aetaltis games. As I get more patrons, I’ll include more content and release these more often. We may offer these PDFs to non-patrons, but they’ll get it later and have to pay more!


Why Use Patreon?
I can write the rules and color text, but to achieve the pro-level quality I’m talking about, I need help! Editors, artists, cartographers, layout artists all need to get paid for their work. Not to mention the costs of things like Adobe CC subscriptions and web hosting. I’d also like to bring in more people to create new content even more quickly.

I hope that with Patreon, you and your friends can help to make this happen, and in exchange, you’ll get an incredible new fantasy campaign setting and a ton of fantastic gaming tools and material!
