London, ENGLAND: 4th June 2024

New Legends of Avallen campaign book, Against the Faerie Queene is now available, including bundle deals with its accompanying Art Book, deck of playing cards, and the Legends of Avallen Core Rulebook.

The Faerie Queene orchestrates an aeons-old quest for vengeance from the eerie twilight of the Otherworld. In Avallen, her hidden agents fulfil her bidding in rebellion against clans and gods alike. But the ancient fae cannot anticipate new heroes who are bold enough to rise against her.

Dare you stand Against the Faerie Queene?

Against the Faerie Queene is a 370 page epic fantasy campaign book full of Celtic mythology, daring adventure, stunning artwork, and new character options for heroes of levels 1-10 in both 5th Edition and the card-based Celtic TTRPG, Legends of Avallen.

Alongside the tragic legend surrounding King Arthur’s mother, Against the Faerie Queene crafts its narrative from little-known Welsh Celtic tales, such as the great boar hunt of “Culhwch and Olwen”, the haunting riddles of “The Son of Llyr”, and the journey for redemption of “Peredur the Son of Efrawg”.

  • Explore the Celtic-inspired clanlands of Avallen in this branching fifteen-part campaign.
