Athesia Reborn Wiki

Welcome to the Athesia Reborn Wiki[]

"The world of Athesia is but a shattered memory of its glorious past. A thousand years of war and disaster have undone so much of what came before. But this ends here and it ends now. You have been asked to come to the place once known as Unity Island, to the ruins of an ancient and glorious city that once stood for a vision of a civilized and united Athesia. Together you will rebuild what was lost, drive the darkness back from the world and create a republic where all right thinking folk can walk free from fear and ignorance. Join us and help shine a light in the dark places."

'Athesia Reborn' is a roleplaying game ran for members of the Essex University Roleplay Games Society, both past and present (and if there’s room, their friends). It combines a mix of heroic adventuring with the trials and tribulations of forging a new republic in a wild and inhospitable world.

Players take the role of a mighty hero, invited to join this new republic and serve on its ruling council.

It is run bi-annually for around 30 players, over a full weekend (starting Friday evening and ending Sunday afternoon).

The fledgling republic of Athesia is ruled from the centre of the continent on Unity Island, an ancient seat of power from the days of the old alliance.

The rest of the Athesian peninsula is broken into 5 regions, each with their own distinct culture, factions and threats.


There are other factions that are either not tied to a particular land, or exist outside Athesia.
