I once had a roleplaying "supplement" - that was the title, it was actually an almost complete rpg - like this:

  • the (scarcely described) setting was supposed to be Atlantis
  • level and class system
  • I believe first published in the 80s, in the US
  • Huge alchemy system with tons of recipes
  • maybe half a dozen magic classes with own spell list
  • classes and skills to play classical medieval fantasy and also eastern/wuxia/Jidei Geki heroes (martial artists, monks, ninja)
  • Combat mechanic revolved around a d20, skill checks around a d100, attributes where mostly <20 and played little direct role (A bit similar to Rifts)
  • The German title was "Arkanum", however that's used so often and is not protected that it's useless as a search term (or my google fu is horrible).

I'd like to know what it was called and the usual publishing information (authors etc.).
