Introducing the Bigàt

Among the too many projects I am currently juggling, there is a side gig as the only person with a iota of sense and some manners in Brancalonia, a project for a D&D 5th Edition sourcebook and resource that will allow brave players to explore the world of Italian folklore, Medieval and Renaissance literature, and spaghetti fantasy.
The sort of game in which Bud Spencer and Terence Hill team up with a non-Disney Pinocchio-style living puppet to go treasure-hunting in the plague-ridden, ghost-haunted, brigand-infested countryside straight out of Verhoeven’s Flesh + Blood.

I will serve as translator for the project – so yes, there will be a bad English version of this thing – and at the moment I have provided the full-length scenario that graces the pages of the Brancalonia Quick Start, that will be out as soon as those lazy neherdowells of my companions in this adventure sober-up enough to publish it.

The scenario is called Valley of the Bigàt, and features a popular monster of the Italian folklore and of our very own fantasy literature – the riverine behemoth known as the bigàt or bigatto.
A thing that looks like this…

The scenario is a daring crossover between Rober E. Howard’s The Valley of the Worm and Giuseppe Pederiali’s Il tesoro del Bigatto, probably the best fantasy novel ever written in our language.

I will publish in the next days those news about the project of which I am not ashamed of – including the launch date for the Kickstarter.
