The Kaiin Player’s Guide


Explore the most decadent city in a world of decadence. 100,000 words by Robin D Laws describe 100,000 inhabitants in this innovative and highly play-tested source book.

PCs are assumed to be knowledgeable veterans of the White-Walled City, not ignorant mooncalves. No longer will the GM be the sole arbiter of adventures; players are encouraged to choose from hundreds of plot hooks and contacts to create sublime gaming sessions.

From the self-indulgent aristocrats of Odkin Prospect to Prince Khandive’s pleasure barge, the whole city is mapped out using fine words, pictures and… maps. The ideal supplement for long-term adventuring in the Dying Earth.

    To avoid the ridicule of my peers, I must regretfully ask: how exactly does one pronounce kaiin?

    • Simon Rogers says:

      I say Kane. Robin says Kai-in. Sound authoritative and look stern, and make your choice. It’s the Pelgrane way.

      • The Authoritative Answer says:

        Such is the state of decrepitude into which our world has descended that self-purported experts disagree on how to mispronounce the name of such a popular and populous metropolis. Such ignorance is best pointed out and then left uncorrected to avoid besmirching one’s own reputation by the association with or the misinterpretation of cretins.
