    I recently stumbled across the Kickstarter for the Capharnaum RPG: The Tales of the Dragon-Marked…a Middle Eastern flavored fantasy RPG:

    I was just spectating at first, but when they released the Capharnaum: The Tears of Ampharool Quickstart, I downloaded it and immediately fell in love with the setting and flavor of the pregenerated characters.

    There is a link to download the free quickstart in this update:

    If you are looking for a more unusual setting to host your fantasy games, I definitely recommend you check it out.

    That does look very nice. So I backed.

    Yeah…I was a lurker for a long time…combination of strained budget going into the holiday season and a large assortment of fantasy games. But when I started reading all of the flavor in those pregenerated characters in the quickstart…like quicksand I was sucked right on in.

    It’s a shame that there isn’t a decent range of miniatures somewhere to match. I love miniatures in RPGs

    Most of my roleplaying over the last decade has been pushed to online avenues, so the miniature situation doesn’t usually impact me. But on a table, it is nice to have that visual element even when you don’t need them for the game.

    This thread on Board Game Geek has someone looking for similar style minis and the thread has quite a few pointers to Arabian minis:

    And one more time…@onlyonepinman – I asked on the Kickstarter comments regarding possible thematic miniatures to use with Capharnaum and this is the response I got:

    @Midnight Blue: Hi, I’m the art director for Mindjammer Press. Regarding miniatures, there are plenty of options. Check the appropriate sections of the following companies: Foundry Miniatures (Ancient and Dark Age), Fireforge Games (Middle Ages, especially Armies of Islam), Reaper Miniatures (search by keyword, eg Arabian, turban, scimitar), Gripping Beast (drill down into both the Saga and Gripping Beast sections), Perry Miniatures (Metal Crusades section), Shieldwolf Miniatures (Araves), Alchemist Miniatures (various factions). I’ll post more if any occur to me.

    Hope it helps!

    Historical miniatures are ok until you want to start including things other than fighters – then it starts to get a bit limiting. And scale wise they don’t work well with the few fantasy ranges that have some Arabian style miniatures.

  • Avatar Image midnightblue34p said 4 days, 3 hours ago:

    Gotcha.

    I’m definitely more of a gamer than a hobbyist, so this isn’t my strong suit. If I can find prepainted minis for what I’m looking for…I’m all over that!

    =)
