What do you want your Arium to be?

Arium is the name of our tabletop roleplaying game! Why? We wanted a simple name for a container of possibility.

Think of it like this: an Arium is an overarching world, universe, setting, and story/adventure seeds containing a collection of fascinating landmarks, people, and items!

“Adept Icarus has put together an extremely intriguing worldbuilding system and a simple but narratively interesting roleplaying mechanic to go with it.  [The] quality product that they have put together in these two books indicates that what is still to come will be interesting as well.  I highly recommend picking these two up to both look at and add to your collection and gaming and worldbuilding toolbox.”
-Josh Walles, Angel’s Citadel

Arium is a complete tabletop roleplaying game.

Create and Discover your own container of possibility.

Arium: Create in Print (with free PDF)

U.S. SHIPPING INCLUDED!* A soft-bound, full color copy of Arium: Create. 48 pages of our collaborative worldbuilding rules, examples, and gorgeous art! Includes a free PDF.


Arium: Create contains our refreshing and intuitive system for creating your own Arium, and you’ll do it in one or two hours! The Arium you create will be unique to your group, and we promise everyone will be in love with it.  
Create encourages folks to err on the side of awesome when collaborating to build their Arium, and the result is often surprising, but never disappointing! With a little work, you can take your resulting Arium and use it with any game system, or we’ve built in a seamless transition to our roleplaying rules found in Arium: Discover


Arium: Create is a system where everyone at the gaming table has a vested interest in the setting they are creating. I found it easy to learn and use [and] I’m excited to put Arium: Create into greater use as I introduce the complete process to my gaming group.”

“This game made session 0 feel like game night instead of spreadsheets. 10/10, wish I had pledged more.”

Arium: Discover in Print (with free PDF)

U.S. SHIPPING INCLUDED!* One soft-bound, full color copy of Arium: Discover. Our 72-page top-quality streamlined RPG filled with more fabulous art. Free PDF included.


Arium: Discover will work with any world. Take your favorite TV series,  your homebrew setting, or a movie/novel and quickly adapt to run it with Discover.

Then, it’s off to tell the story! Adventure, horror, and comedy are all on the table. Sci-fi, fantasy, and intrigue also possibilities! The streamlined d6-based system will feel familiar yet flexible. Additionally, the system of Boons and Banes encourages play that explores the important and meaningful by focusing on the relevant thematic elements of your Arium.

*As mentioned above, shipping within the United States is included. It’s where the Adept Icarus warehouse is located and where everything ships from. We’re happy to ship to other countries, but due to increases in shipping costs, we’ll have to add a shipping surcharge that starts at $8 (and may go up depending on the weight of your order). We also cannot be responsible for taxes, duties, VAT, etc. that may be charged upon arrival in the destination country.

We received our print copies of the Arium books […] These are, in a word, amazing. I’ve never seen zine format prints with such high quality. Thick paper and covers, hefty, well-cut, and sharp printing with durable inks.”
