Neithernor is a tabletop roleplaying game unlike any other. Inspired by the immersive, interactive world of C.J. Bernstein’s Briarverse, Neithernor puts the story in your hands. You craft the characters, challenges, and dark forces you’ll face, all the while learning new magic, solving old mysteries, and carving out your own corner of the magimystic universe. The Neithernor handbook includes chapters on forming your own coven, creating your own magic, choosing from eighteen new roleplaying classes based on the Briarverse’s guild-bearings, and nearly 300 new spells for your character to learn and master.
