Featuring evil cults and exotic gods, unscrupulous politicians and nobles, scheming rakshasas and serpentfolk, ancient dungeons buried beneath the city streets, powerful criminal gangs, gladiators and chariot racing, Parsantium contains enough adventure hooks and adversaries to keep your player characters busy throughout their careers, without having to step outside the city walls. The Parsantium city sourcebook contains: 2,000 years of history 17 character backgrounds for new PCs Over 70 detailed city locations Over 200 NPC descriptions 50 power groups, guilds and noble families 35 deities Compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Parsantium: City at the Crossroads contains minimal game stats, making it easy to use with whatever edition you are playing. Parsantium can be readily incorporated into your own campaign world or published fantasy setting.

About Richard Green

Richard Green has been playing D&D since 1980, running the game in all four (now five!) editions, as well as plenty of other RPGs. He is currently running a regular 4th edition D&D campaign set in the city and wider world of Parsantium, his own creation, which he has turned into a sourcebook for all editions of D&D and Pathfinder and published through Ondine Publishing. He has also written for TSR, Kobold Press and Raging Swan Press. Richard lives in London with his wife Kate and two cats. When he's not playing and writing roleplaying stuff, he likes to watch Crystal Palace FC try to win football matches. You can learn more about Parsantium at
