“I came seeking adventure, death, and vengeance… and I found Capharnaum. It called to me with its ancient gods and enmities, its mysterious quests, desert caravans and dusty souks.
I was tracking a djinn, one of the worst, a marid risen in rebellion against Marduk the Dragon. In the depths of the desert I had a vision of a thousand warriors crossing this scorching land. Here everything is in motion, wind and sand, and the night has a thousand colours. Everything is struggle – even for those who seek a peaceful life…”
~ From The First Odyssey to Kafer Nahum, by Jilali Ibn Malik Abd-al-Hassan, holy warrior of Kh’saaba.

A Spicy Surprise
Capharnaum has a great system in a novel setting and, best of all, the two are wonderfully linked. I want to play this game.
I want to play this game to discover the world through a player character’s eyes as that will be magical and because I’m struggling to take it all in just by reading.
I want to play this game with the right group because I predict exotic adventures and thrillingly tough decisions.
