Here I will put weekly updates from Arcane Synthesis: which aims to keep a steady stream of community written content and keep the discussion going.

Feel free to post thoughts and responses here. I have held off advertising here because I don’t want to spam the board, and also not sure how many people here are already seeing my posts on discord and Facebook.

Most of Arcane Synthesis is not written by me, but from people who want to share something related to this game and world. If you have something exciting you want to write, let me know and I’d love to have you on board.
