In Dungeons & Dragons, the fantasy role-playing game, Arcadia or more fully, the Peaceable Kingdoms of Arcadia, is a lawful neutral/lawful good-aligned plane of existence. It is one of a number of alignment-based Outer Planes that form part of the standard Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) cosmology, used in the Planescape, Greyhawk and some editions of the Forgotten Realms campaign settings.
Arcadia is one of the twin worlds that the Earth has been Divided into, as featured in the adventure game The Longest Journey and its sequel, Dreamfall. Unlike its cyberpunk counterpart Stark, Arcadia is a fantasy realm, where magic, ancient mysteries and a number of fantasy races and creatures are native. According to the ancient Balance between the two worlds, science and technology are almost impossible to advance in Arcadia, just as magic is impossible in Stark.
Arcadia was a two-dimensional shoot em up which got faster and faster as the game progressed.
