Publication history[edit]


Cliff Ramshaw reviewed Player's Secrets of Ariya for Arcane magazine, rating it a 7 out of 10 overall.[1] He described Ariya as a "sun-kissed domain" that is "exceptional if only because rather than yet another variation on Northern European feudalism it's an altogether more romantic, magical and unfamiliar place - one that owes much to the Arabian Nights".[1] Ramshaw felt that the domain of Ariya is "imbued with spicy richness", he felt that the plot hooks were "somewhat ordinary", saying: "They're not bad, just not as imaginative as the setting itself. Still, there's plenty here to get a good referee improvising."[1]
