The World Guide to Barnaynia – the banana-shaped world - PDF Download for just $4.95 or get the nearly 300 page Hardback POD book for $24.95 - click here!

Life on a Banana-shaped world is always going to be a bit different, you would think? But for most of the characters, NPCs and species the shape of the world they are trying to survive on is irrelevant. The day is 24 hours long, the horizon is flat and the sun rises and sest every day.  The world has got cities, countries, mountains, caverns, dungeons and ruins, as you might expect, but there are space adventures as well if you fancy something a bit different:

Fancy checking out a Storm Giants’ castle on an asteroid? Want to step off the edge of the world and float away into space? Want to walk on the Moon? It’s all possible on Barnaynia, although such activities are very dangerous.

There's plenty of scope for normal adventures too: There are many strange cultures, cults, islands, forests, mountains, hills and deserts to discover.  Below the surface, the Darkworld is a honeycomb of caverns throughout the planet's crust wherein dwell all sorts of monsters. There is even a hole through the middle of the world allowing water to move from below to above, and there are dozens of other wonders to explore.

This product is as much a source of inspiration to take your game thinking “out of the box” as it is a World Guide, including:

  • Nearly 300 pages of ideas, encounters and locations;
  • NPCs and monsters, as well as details of their societies and attitudes;
  • Several entirely new civilisations to confuse the players with;
  • Explanations of the geology, geography, science and magic of a banana-shaped world;
  • Details on astronomy, astrology and how the calendar works;
  • Location descriptions for all the celestial bodies;
  • Loads of adventure and campaign ideas;

The 2022 Second Edition has even more: 

  • More details on the major civilisations;
  • More information on many of the major features of the world;
  • More Magic Items;
