Once you have collected a tidy sum and somewhat climbed the ranks of your company, you’ll be ready to try your luck in that fifinal job that could enable you to go out in a blaze of glory…
Brancalonia - Setting Book
The Basic Manual of Brancalonia consists of 192 richly illustrated full-color pages, with maps, characters, antagonists, monsters and other images evocative of the Kingdom. This features:
In Brancalonia, all player characters are Knaves, i.e. members of a company of mercenaries, rogues, and similar rascals, engaged in questionable jobs across the various domains of what is left of an ancient kingdom, now in ruins.
This rabble, this throng of gallows birds, of which you are such worthy examples, is also identified in its entirety as the Bounty Brothers: the network of bands, companies, and Knaves on whose heads a Bounty – large or small – was placed at some time by one of the King dom’s fief lords.
You will start off as third-rate scoundrels in a vile, dangerous world, clawing your way up through dirt and blood. Eventually, if you prove yourself up to it, you will rise to the rank of leader of your company, and shake the thrones of kings and lords.
Are you ready? Um, right: you were born ready…

This module collects every stretch goal unlocked during our crowdfunding launch campaign, in Spring 2020.
In this book you will find:
The adventures of Brancalonian Knaves take place in what its inhabitants refer to as “the Bounty Kingdom”, or simply “the Kingdom”.
The territories of the Brancalonia Peninsula and neighboring islands are but a minor possession of the Empire of Altomagna, ceded to Queen Menalda of Catozza as a vassalic benefit a hundred years ago and never recovered, even after the dynastic line of the Catozzi was broken by intrigues, plots, and a dozen suitors.
The Bounty mentioned by Pomponius was for the head of Buemondo the Fat from Aurocastro, who – from the bottom of the peninsula – had set up a confederation of bandits, lords, and brigands. These villains
raged from Piccadora to Falcamonte, assaulting each and every imperial army, and refusing to pay taxes, tithes, and levies. In exchange for the head of Buemondo, said to weigh eighty pounds, Menalda was given the regency of the Kingdom on behalf of the Emperor. A century has gone by: the entire peninsula has eluded Altomagna’s control – and no-one is keen to reclaim it.
With the Iron Crown of Menalda gone missing, and the succession’s heraldry undecided, the Kingdom is now split into over a dozen independent regions; in turn, these are fragmented into local potentates, fiefdoms, counties, villages, marches, duchies, baronies, alliances, knighthoods, municipalities, and commercial leagues; not to mention the uncertainty of the domains’ boundaries, and surrounding no-man’s-lands…
Given the wide variety of themes and tones that can be used when playing Brancalonia, each of these regions can be the scene of odd jobs and situations with a highly specific atmosphere.
