The World of Abantey
Thousands of years ago, seven Creators – beings of immense knowledge and power – created the world of Abantey. Each shaped a land and people that was a reflection of their Ways. Os’Baluud whispered of forests tall and broad, animals and people living in harmony. Os’Feesha wove a tale of pleasure and relaxation. Os’Gnihton hailed a world of ever-changing life. Os’Plajet jabbered of tricks, wonders and feats to make all laugh. Os’Sakeet roared of honor, combat, and heroes. Os’Ta’as muttered of rigorous inquiry and amazing discoveries. Os’Wa’la detailed a land and people dedicated to hardship.
The peoples of Abantey are divided between those who are Marked – those who follow the Ways of their Creator – or Rogue – those who have broken away from the Creators’ Ways and seek to forge their own future. You play an adventurer, the brave and talented few that the Creator Temples and Rogue Guilds rely on to protect innocent common folk, handle sensitive missions, and solve mysteries and crimes.
Abantey is the game world that has been the heart of The Roleplay Workshop for more than 27 years. The world and game system of Abantey were conceived to focus on physical, biological, and cultural realism – something many other game systems avoid – while still pushing the boundaries of imagination and creativity that are the hallmark of tabletop roleplaying games.
