Can I use this campaign setting with [Insert system here]?

Of course you can. Phaemorea is designed to plug directly into Classic D&D, but conversion into any type of D&D or AD&D is fairly effortless. Conversion to other systems shouldn’t be overly difficult either, providing it allows for classic High Fantasy.

Why do I have to sign up to DriveThruRPG to download your stuff?

OneBookShelf, the people behind DriveThruRPG, RPGNow and many other services, have extensive experience in distributing gaming products. We have been customers for years, and it’s wonderful to be able to give back something to an organisation we admire. It also gives people the ability to donate a little to help us keep buying resources to maintain quality publications. In short, it seemed like the professional thing to do.
