A Guide to the World of Zanziar (PDF)
Not everybody knows this, but the events of Perdition’s Mouth: Abyssal Rift (and the expansion published later on) and the Beyond the Rift card game take place in the world of Zanziar. This ravaged and war-torn land has existed in the imaginations of designer Timo Multamäki and other people for far longer than Perdition’s Mouth or even Timo’s first published board game. Zanziar was and still is the setting for his long-time roleplaying game group’s misadventures, and over the years, it has also been used by other game masters. By this date, Zanziar has been populated by colorful characters, it has been shaken by world-changing events, and history has been born.
If you’re interested in delving deeper into this world and learning more about, e.g., the background of the nefarious Cult of Change, nature magic, or the One True God Simma preaches about, this book is for you.
