What is the setting of Tales of Old Rus?
An original fantasy world, Belosvet is home to bogatyrs, wizards, and sorcerers, amusing little spirits known as nechistiks, and myriad creatures most foul. The world of Belosvet is inspired by Slavic folklore and has been carefully and lovingly redesigned by artist/author Roman Papsuev.
Inhabited by beloved characters from epic poems and fairy tales, including Vasilisa the Wise, Varvara the Fair, Koschey the Deathless, and the fire-breathing Gorynich, this world offers no shortage of adventures. Encounter hideous witches known as veshtitsas from Western Slavic folklore, bloodthirsty werewolves, and even vile demons from the Beyond.
The people of Slavia, the union of Rus and the states of the Golden Chain, have lived in peace and tranquility since time immemorial... but will it last?
