||.||..||The gods have died, heaven has fallen, and man has rebuilt his world
on the wreckage. The Elves belong to an ancient demon. The Dwarves can
turn to smoke and walk on the wind. Men wage wars of trade for the emeralds
which fuel the most powerful sorceries, and the Satyrs sail the high seas
... to stage panty-raids. Beneath it all, the dungeons are the crushed
remains of heaven itself. This is Uresia, the acclaimed,
eccentric, and basically good-natured fantasy world by S. John Ross.
Uresia comes from the author of such timeless classics as a cartoon in Dragon magazine that one time, and a pretty good recipe for General Tso's Chicken. It is a wholly-revised and expanded edition of Grave of Heaven, perfect for newcomers and satisfying to long-time fans of the world. Uresia is fully illustrated, indexed, mapped, has clicky-things for the screen readers and removable layers for the home-printers. Every copy is made of 100% post-consumer recycled genre love and nitrate-free pixels. Serve with snacks.

Q: Is This The Fantasy World From Big Eyes, Small Mouth?
A: Yep, same world, from the Skyfall to the Slimes, in a new expanded edition! Note that Uresia is is now part of the All-Systems Library here at Cumberland, so it's no longer attached to any specific game-system. It's pure "world lore," for the FRPG of your choice. This edition is designed and produced entirely by S. John Ross, author/mapper of the original book.
Q: Any Big Differences?
A: It's a bit higher-res. The BESM edition of Uresia was just over 45,000 words; this expanded version is more than 90,000, with all new art and maps. That said, it was very important to keep the accessibility of the original, so the new material is mostly "intimacies" focused on individual characters, and comparable awesome-but-not-essential stuff. Uresia remains a very "anti-encyclopedic" sort of design, easy to get into and more evocative than informative. Grab the free sampler and you'll see!
Q: I Want Dead-Tree! Is There A Dead-Tree Uresia?
A: If you prefer that new-book-smell, you can visit heaven's grave via the print-on-demand folks at Lulu (where it's available in a variety of formats, including all-in omnibus edition binding Uresia together with its own groovy support material).
Q: Did You Need To Make The Logo Above So HUGE?
A: I ... I got carried away [darts eyes around helplessly]. Buy things!
