Welcome to Kingdoms of Legend!
What is Kingdoms of Legend?
Kingdoms of Legend is a medieval fantasy campaign setting for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Based on an alternate history Earth from the year 1415 CE, Kingdoms of Legend is a world of change, where the old is being supplanted by the new. The former era of elves, dwarves, and gnomes is fading while the age of humanity is at hand.
The first goal for this campaign setting is to be a good place for adventures! When we began work on publishing adventure modules compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, we wanted to set them all in a common world. We decided that an alternate Earth setting would be a great backdrop, providing GMs and players with a world that is immediately recognizable and comfortable.
Kingdoms of Legend is set in the year 1415 CE. We have tried to remain more-or-less true to the technology level and geographical layout of this historical era while adding in all the trappings of classic high fantasy: dragons, magic, elves, etc. I think the result is a very accessible and interesting setting.
Kingdoms of Legend can host many different types of campaign because there is a lot going on in the world at this time! The Mongols press in on Europe from the east, Barbary Corsairs raid Mediterranean settlements in search of slaves, the Kingdoms of England and France are locked in a series of battles which will come to be known as the Hundred Year’s War. You have an ancient Egyptian setting (Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt), a Transylvania horror setting (Moldavia and Wallachia), classic knights in shining armor, Viking-like hordes, and even Medieval piracy! All set in a world rife with conflict: perfect for adventurous heroes of all types!
