This website is dedicated to the archives of The Secret Treasure of Raguoc in the Acirema Dungeons. Acirema is the first Finnish tabletop role-playing game, released in 1986. English translation of the game was made available in 2014. The game rules are easy to learn, and there are a few twists and turns you won't find in other fantasy role-playing games.
Hundreds of years ago, something astonishing happened in the Land of High Mountains. One night, the Royal Treasurer Raguoc stole all the King's most valuable treasures. The guards, working together with Raguoc, took the treasures to their hideaway under the cover of night.
That hideaway was beneath Acirema Mountain, in a gloomy tunnel network of hundreds if not thousands of dark caves, musty corridors and god knows what creatures! Once the treasures had been secreted away in the dank tunnels, Raguoc murdered his accomplices and vanished.
The King, of course, sent great many soldiers after Raguoc when the theft was discovered. Though many of the troops delved into the depths of Acirema Mountain, none returned.
Naturally, these news attracted many adventurers to test their luck, but they fared no better in the gloomy corridors of Acirema. Rumors circulated in the region of how Raguoc had subjugated the myriad denizens of Acirema with his mastery of magic and mighty spellcraft. Now he used them to protect the treasure against intruders!
Only once has someone returned from the depths. He was a brave knight from a faraway land. After four days of exploring the caves he was coming out into the light of day. Those who approached him were frightened of the sight: the poor man was horribly maimed and walked as if dreaming. He had been struck mute and could not comprehend his surroundings. One of Raguoc's servants had gravely injured him, but at least he had managed to escape. The poor victim died the next night, ensuring that the secrets of Acirema were kept safe.
Centuries have passed since. Raguoc himself is dead, but his terrible guardians still hide in the bowels of Acirema Mountain. Rumors are told about the mysterious deaths and disappearances of those braving the caves. The power of Raguoc still lingers in the dungeons, and few dare challenge it even now.
You and your companions now have the unique opportunity to succeed where all others have failed:
