A downloadable digital zine

Buy Now$9.00 USD or more


The Electrum Archive is a science-fantasy tabletop RPG, inspired by games like The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Ultraviolet Grasslands, Suldokar's Wake, and Cairn

This first zine will set down the basic rules and give a general overview of the game's setting, the world of Orn. On Orn, a magical ink is left behind by a mysterious alien race. It features as a currency and can be inhaled to cast spells or used to power ancient constructs.

I will be itchfunding the digital version of this zine so I can hire an editor and get a nice piece of cover art. 

Free playtest - The free playtest rules and character sheets can be found in the Demo section at the bottom of this page. 

$9 The full zine - You will get the full version of this zine when it is finished this summer. For now, you will gain access to a preview detailing the Electrum Sea region of Orn and a short playtest scenario. 

I will also add a free community copy to the pool below for every sale.

$18 Community Hero - If you buy the zine at $18 or above, I will add 5 community copies to the pool!

What will be in the zine?

The full 52-page first issue will include the following:

  • The rules and character options found in the free playtest demo
  • A map of Orn
  • A brief timeline of the setting
  • An overview of each of the major regions (including encounter tables, major locations and adventure hooks)
  • An overview of the largest factions.
  • Some useful tables for generating treasure and NPCs.
