New Endzeitgeist Review: Awesome Alternate Icons

Endzeitgeist has just reviewed Icons of Parsantium and given it 5 stars and his seal of approval!

He says “Richard Green’s Icons of Parsantium are absolutely STUNNING….The icons herein are very much tangible; they are characters with names, histories etc….and yes, they may die and fail and struggle. What we have here are proper characters with ambiguous, versatile uses…that lose none of the icon’s required gravitas. Even if you’re not interested in Parsantium (why?), I pretty much can guarantee that, if you’re even remotely interested in a more down-to-earth or sword and sorcery-esque version of 13th Age, the icons here will provide inspiration galore for your own designs…or make for great scavenging material.

Parsantium: City at the Crossroads & Icons of Parsantium

Disclaimer: these pdfs were graciously given to Iconic by Richard Green for review. All opinions within the review are our own.

Although Iconic is on hiatus, we still love looking at 13th Age products. Richard Green contacted us about reviewing his products, and we jumped at the chance to check out the Parsantium books: Parsantium: City at the Crossroads and Icons of Parsantium.

Parsantium: City at the Crossroads

ParsantiumCatCParsantium: City at the Crossroads is a setting created with Pathfinder stats in mind, but ended up being mostly system neutral.

The book itself is 178 pages of double-columned text with a spattering of images that do a decent job of invoking the setting…

Knights of the Dinner Table Reviews Parsantium

I’ve been reading Knights of the Dinner Table since the strips were in Dragon, and buying the monthly magazine since around issue 30, so I was thrilled to see a review for Parsantium: City at the Crossroads in Brian’s Picks in issue #218:

“Gorgeous full-color maps are included in this rich, extremely detailed city with enough history and adventure to keep any role-player interested and busy.

Brian’s Rating: Travel to this exotic locale and check out the book.”

New Review: Thoughts On… Parsantium

Lester Gash, who played in the 13th Age Parsantium game run by Steve Dempsey at Dragonmeet, has written a review of the sourcebook on his blog Thoughts of a Part-Time Hobbyist.

Lester writes “I can’t recommend Parsantium enough if you want a rich, detailed setting for your fantasy roleplay that’s different from the usual fare. No matter what kind of game your players like, Parsantium can fit it in.”

New Review: A Byzantine Metropolis in Lavish Detail

Endzeitgeist has just reviewed Parsantium: City at the Crossroads and has given it 5 stars and his seal of approval!

He says “Parsantium BREATHES authenticity and love – New York City meets Byzantium, modern metropolis meets swords & sorcery – this book actually manages to portray a believable, interesting, unique city that oozes the spirit of Al Qadim, early weird fiction and recent phenomena like the god of war-series, all while staying believable.”
