It is also the name of the fictional world where the setting takes place. The setting was launched in and is known for its odd twists on the fantasy genre, as well as its wide member approval and community-based design and construction. Arcanis is set on the continent of Onara , where a crumbling Coryani Empire reminiscent of the Western Roman Empire struggles with newly created nations such as Milandir reminiscent of the Holy Roman Empire or Canceri reminiscent of Russia during the Middle Ages and the Balkans. Other playable races exist, such as half-orcs and half-hobgoblins, but their numbers are far smaller than the primary races. Notably, halflings are NOT a playable race.

Legends of Arcanis
Codex Geographica vol. With more than forty creatures, including over a dozen different varieties of lizardfolk, the Ssethregoran Empire is sure to surprise your players with something new and different. The reptilian peoples known as ssethrics once dominated all that lived throughout the continent and beyond. From atop the Coiled Throne of Yahssremore, in what is now the First City in the Blessed Lands, they enslaved or exterminated numerous lesser races during the Extinction Wars and became masters of all they surveyed. This dominance was squandered by arrogance and centuries of decadence, after which the ssethrics found themselves overthrown by their own creations and sent fleeing for their lives, far into the swamps and jungles of the south. Now, in the fetid marshes of the Kraldjur Morass live their descendants in the Ssethregoran Empire. Within these pages you will find: The history of the oldest empire in the history of Arcanis — including secret history about the world of Arcanis that soft-hides were never meant to know.
