Archive is a collection of adventure sites, NPCs, and events ripped right out of history and perfect for your campaign. It’s a 266-page book with 80 subjects. All have everything you need to make them come alive at your table: sights, smells, history, local color, and even plot hooks and ideas to help you adapt them to your campaign setting.


Need a villain? Throw your PCs against a big bad based on Ching Shih, the notorious pirate queen, presented with the tactics and schemes she used to wreak havoc across coastal China! Need a random encounter during travel? Recreate the 1861 encounter of the French corvette Alecton with a dying giant squid, and the social consequences that followed. Need an adventure site? Why not model it on Fort Jefferson, complete with real historical secrets for your PCs to uncover?


Archive’s thematically-organized index makes it easy to find the perfect plot, site, or NPC for tonight’s game, or you can just crack it open and read as a history book. Whatever your campaign’s genre or setting, Archive is full to bursting with content that will bring your game to life.


Comes with a free PDF copy. If you want just the PDF, they're available at DriveThruRPG.
