"Herein lies some
of our oldest and most basic surviving lore.
These are the spells most common to the arcane
arts of Khardan. Listed together are the runic,
ritual, and incantation arcana. Most of the more
intricate spells practiced among magi are the
spells that were created by forgotten masters of
the arts. Some of the spells even bear the
sigils of magi from the magikeal holocaust. You
fledgling magi are encouraged by the enclave to
develop and create your own arcane lore. For
your survival, do not depend on the works of
was concieved in 1990 as an alternative to other
fantasy role playing games. At that time my
campaigning adverturers thirsted for somthing
more than an a-typical fantasy world. We
envisioned a fantasy world where new and alien
races populated the lands; where arcane arts of
all forms are practiced and mysticism, terror
and wonder still lay behind every door. From the
depths of our imaginations a forgotten land
emerged. Just like it's latin counterpart,
Lycadican stirred our imaginations and the world
of Khardan appeared in the void. Crude rules
were defined, wonderous lands were described and
populated, and arcane arts were put to paper.
Thus, a new world was born. There are just a few
of the races and magikes in the world of Khardan
listed on this site. Click the FRPG link to the right
to view them. Also, I've started a Lycadican Blog to
keep people up to date with what is going on with
Lycadican development. You can get to my blog by
Clicking on the "News" icon to the left.
The book itself needs pictures of all kinds to spark the
imagination where arcane runes and symbols fail.
If you are an artist and wish to contribute,
please send us an email. Every artist or author that
contributes work to the book will recieve his own
page on this site dedicated to him. Also he will
be listed in the credits to the book and will have
a section where he may have short write ups on each
piece of art or may have a bio.
I am currently looking for play testers for the
latest version of the Lycadican FRPG. If you
are a Lycadican player and wish to provide valuable
feedback or if you wish to join the lycadican effort, feel free to
subscribe to our lycadican-frpg mailing list or email me directly.
I have recently just posted some of my papers
from my studies of Anthropology at university.
One in particular is an assesment about using structuralism
to provide a framework for game designers
wishing to use anthropological tools to create
culture in a fantasy setting.
