1559: a time of discovery and exploration.
In the New World, an ancient power sleeps, awaiting the stars to align in order to rise again.
Are you ready?
It has been 500 years since the Old World last had contact with Norumbega. Is it a city of magic and gold, or of terror and death? The time has come, the stars have aligned, and a new cycle begins.
That which slept stirs...
Almost 50 years before the founding of Popham, and 30 years before Roanoke, the New World remains a vast place of mystery. No one knows what this land hides, or who—or what—waits in the shadows watching and hunting. There is a dark power that sleeps here, and its awakening will set great and terrible events in motion.
What you learn there may be something you wish you never knew.
Assuming, that is, you survive your journey to the New World to discover it…
Michael LaMonica, author of French Revolutions for Beginners and The Ultimate Age of Discovery Guide: Renaissance France, brings the young New World to life in a time and place not usually depicted in roleplaying games. Focusing on early modern French Atlantic history, well before the American Revolution, this mega-adventure focuses on locations and legends you are not likely to have ever experienced.
The Journey to Norumbega includes everything you will need to run this pulse-pounding epic adventure. The action does not stop here, however, as plenty of material is provided for you to continue adventuring in the pre-colonial period of Colonial Gothic, and to create your own mysteries in the New World.
