Tales of Arcana

Tales of Arcana™ is a roleplaying game system that uses cards to randomly generate characters. The game is designed for one-time, single-session campaigns where players randomly generate their character from cards. Tales of Arcana™ is designed to be set up in a matter of minutes, and it's quick to pick up the basics. The game and system are meant to be meant to be casual and less rule-intensive so that it can be used as an alternative to other systems or as a pathing product into other, more complicated games. Now is your chance to quest in the magical land of Arcana, or any other world of your or your friend's creation, armed with powerful magics to defeat any obstacle. Build a character, create their past, then enter the story to shape their future.

The Kickstarter campaign was a success and there are now copies for order with information available below or through Amazon. The game is free for download below, as well as sample story modules to play with your friends to learn the system. If you enjoy the game, please spread the word, especially through social media with #talesofarcana. You can also check out our Deviantart page to see some of the artwork for the game.
