Brancalonia is the all-Italian setting for the 5th Edition of the most famous role-playing game of all time. Set in a “mirrored” version of Medieval Italy, this unheroic, picaresque and roguish world quotes, collects, and mixes references from contemporary Italian fiction and over a hundred works of Italian fantasy tradition, pop culture, and collective imagery.

Brancalonia - Spaghetti Fantasy Bestiary: 100+ new monsters typical of Italian folklore, legends, myths and literature, of land, sea, sky and underground. Unlike the classic Bestiaries for 5e, this volume will be much more in-depth in terms of lore. In fact, it will present 4 or 6 pages for each main monster, which will include a map and description of the lair, a card of the "minor" monsters that populate it, numerous adventure hooks, rumors, narrative elements divided by style of play (action, mystery, horror, dungeon crawl, sword and sorcery, etc.), hunting tips, and a special item for each monster to be earned defeating it. In addition, each main monster will have a special "Monsterchef Box", i.e. a recipe for cooking monster meat and managing its side effects. It is therefore a "deluxe" bestiary in terms of storytelling. The artists of the volume are Lorenzo Nuti (lead artist of Brancalonia) and the superstar Justin Gerard. All the material can be used with the other Brancalonia manuals, or imported into any of your game settings.

From the Apulian countryside full of dancing spider-witches to the Strait of Messina dominated by the mythological Scylla and Charybdis; from the snow-capped peaks of the Dolomites infested with goblins and mule-demons to the beaches and rocks where the Green Fishermen of Pinocchio nest; from the sly Gatto Mammone to the hypnotic Fata Morgana; from the very mysterious Lonfo that no one has ever really seen to the Colombre shark which, once it has chosen its prey, chases it for its entire life; plus dragons, goblins, witches, mummies, demonic beasts and angelic but no less filthy creatures up to the Great Monster that looms over all of Brancalonia and whose name is whispered with terror, THE PASTA MATER TENEBRARUM, culinary goddess and mistress of the Dark Kitchen.
