Frequently Asked Questions
What is Archaea? What do you need to play? How do you start your own Archaea group? The following is a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Archaea.


Rules & Addenda
The main Archaea Live-Action Role-Playing and Wargaming Information Site details the history of the game, the rules of play, and the realm of Archaea. The MD/DC/VA Archaea Group addenda contains recent changes, modifications, or "house rules" to the 5th edition Archaea sourcebook. Go here for details on how to purchase a rulebook.


Gallery & Characters
Archaea is about action and color, adventure and setting, fantasy and intrigue and we have the pictures to prove it. Furthermore, no drama nor adventure is complete without a cast of characters. Listed here are some of the players from the MD/DC/VA Archaea Group and their in-game personas.


The Archon
The Archon is the newsletter for the MD/DC/VA Archaea Group. The Archon is published quarterly and contains event information, game information, addenda, game-inspired writing and artwork, and character information.
