About Volume 2 of the Cyclopædia Zyathica

Welcome to the wondrous lands of Verdestia! This second volume of the Cyclopaedia Zyathica explores the western half of the sundered northern continent, granting a vivid glimpse of life in this fascinating, and often dangerous, corner of the Wy’rded World. From the decadent palaces of Andvalla to the tense streets of divided Trestoln, you will learn of the many nations, peoples, and landmarks of the realm known as the Wesverd. Trace the ancient history of this land through countless years of brutal conquests and heroic restorations, all leading to the current state of affairs, where shadowy politics and ancient rivalries are a given, and the next conflict is just one wrong step away. Yet things are no less exciting outside the civilized lands; all you could want to know and more of forgotten ruins, blasted wastelands, and hidden sanctuaries across West Verdestia may be found within these pages. All you could need to know to run your own campaign, or side adventures for Red Star Rising lies within these pages. Every nation, city, village, and small locality is written out in incredible detail, with story hooks ready for your imagination to expand upon!

Explore the Nations of West Verdestia

Journey from the north, where the Orcish nation of Magronog is having something of a renaissance, through the Undead lands of the Vile Desolation, through the stagnating Zyranthean Republic, to Andvalla, where a new, beautiful Queen is transforming her nation. Cross over the Wyrmrest Mountains and visit the Leviathan Bay nations, with troubles of their own.

Uncover the Dark and Hidden Places

Many detailed locations are scattered through the book. Stumble upon places of wonder and intrigue, or fall into dark depths haunted by ill-meaning guardians.
