Mystical Throne Entertainment has released the core setting guide (and the player's guide) for our new dark fantasy setting Ancient World.

http://www.rpgnow.com/product/107995/Ancient-World

Dhuran; a foreboding planet abandoned by the gods. 500 years after the gods rained fire and brimstone upon the land, leaving the few survivors to fend for themselves, secrets are being uncovered. The new civilization of the now godless Dhuran find the malevolent spirits of their long-dead ancestors hunting their descendant bloodline. As if being accosted by the spirits of their ancestors isnít enough, tears are opening between the mortal and chaos realms, pouring demons, enslavers, and the undead into the world. Though the people have managed to live and grow since that apocalyptic event, they now fight against the denizens of a planet that wants them dead.

Become a warrior and scour the land, protecting your kin and their allies. Fight back against the evil that spills across the land. Raise your sword in defiance; harness the corrupting power of the spirit realm and strike down the chaos; scribe the chaos runes and use the realmís power against itself; use alchemical knowledge to launch grenades in the face of your foe; take on the role of a hunter seeking out the plagued beings that cross the land; or fight in the name of the gods that left you behind as a crusader determined to bring the gods back to Dhuran. In ANCIENT WORLD, you fight for the survival of those around you: drow, dwarf, half-drow, halfling, and human; you either find victory or become a victim of the chaos your ancestors created, because everything you donít understand, can and will kill you.

Inside the ANCIENT WORLD core setting guide you will find:

An introduction to the history of Dhuran and the current state of the Known Lands.
Five character races.
New Edges and Hindrances.
A change to Arcane Backgrounds with four new options.
A guide to the Known Lands.
Over 25 new, unique creatures to torment the PCs.
Two pregenerated adventures.
Ö and more!

Has anyone played it? How is it?

I'm a sucker for everything that is dark themed. I am wondering what character races are there. What kind of fantasy novels this setting is inspired of.

It's not inspired by any fantasy novels, although I am a big fan of the Mistborn series (no, Ancient World has nothing to do with Mistborn). Ancient World is my deviation from epic fantasy as I love to incorporate a lot more horror and despair in my fantasy games as they make for natural conflict.

The races are:

Drow, dwarf, half-drow, halfling, and human

However, the magic is much different than standard epic fantasy; this is one of the things I thought set it apart so much from regular epic fantasy to become dark fantasy.
