Additional rules include a new exoteric power and the introduction of firearms.
A section is dedicated to everyday life in Europe in the fiftheen century, with data and NPCs as in the same section of the basic rulebook.
The Spain of that age is expecially detailed in the introduction to the adventure, "La veridica historia di Cristobal Colon", where the players have to convince the Kings of Spain to finance Columbus' expedition to the New World, help Isabel to get the money and defeat mysterious characters that want to stop the famous discoverer.
