'''''Aria: Canticle of the Monolith''''' is a RolePlayingGame published by Last Unicorn Games in 1994. Unlike many other role-playing games which centered on individual characters in a preprepared game world, ''Aria'' was intended to facilitate the creation of gameworlds, complete with cultures, histories, and politics. Players play not a single character, but a series of characters across the history of the game world, in essence playing the role of a given guild, city or culture, and telling a larger, grander story than would be accomplished with individual characters.

Largely due to being a very difficult read, it was not a commercial success, though some critics liked it. It is now thoroughly out of print.
