A Players Books for a fantastic Medieval Demonic Roleplaying Game
The Brevarium has arrived! This illustrious tome contains a player-focused collection of rules from Aquelarre (full game here). This weighty text is a hefty 260 pages, and is made up of approximately half of the content of the full Aquelarre game.
Player characters in Aquelarre begin life in one of five kingdoms that dominated the Iberian Peninsula during the Middle Ages—Castilla, Aragón, Granada, Navarra, or Portugal. Based on their region, characters may be of various cultures—Arabian, Basque, Castilian, Catalan, Jewish, Muslim, and many more.
The game system itself relies mainly on percentile rolls against either characteristic ratings or skills based on those (and on character experience).
As this book is player-focused it deals with rules for creating characters, magic, skills, combat, and more, but does not contain the rules a Game Master would need to craft adventures, nor explicitly detailed contents about the setting of medieval Iberia.
Like making a deal with a devil, Aquelarre is not for the faint of heart. It's not an introductory RPG for younger players. The realistic historical setting is dark. Some of the artwork is disturbing. Nosolorol describes this new edition of the game as "more medieval and more demonic than ever" and they are correct on both counts.
What the Critics Say
"Aquelarre has been described as the best RPG not available in English. It’s now available in English..."—Geek Native.
