Kalibutan means world in Bisaya/Cebuano, a language from the Philippines. This world is based on a southeast Asian setting that creates a what if scenario where these places interacted early on with European, middle eastern, east Asian, African and maybe central american kingdoms and empires. What would be the interaction with mythical creatures and magic from all these places? How would technology and politics advance with more direct interaction with these different civilizations? Who would come to be adventurers in this world?
