Who created it? Outremer (Overseas) is a fantasy series created in 2001 by Vincenzo Beretta and Giancarlo Alessandrini. It was published first in France by Albin-Michel publishing company, and then in Italy by Alessandro Editore.

What is it? Outremer is a fantasy series in the most classical meaning of the term. To borrow a famous dialogue from Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy" , in Outremer forest elves are forest elves, fire-breathing dragons are fire-breathing dragons, and dark necromancers casting horrid spells from upon dark towers are dark necromancers casting horrid spells from upon dark towers.

The adventures of the three protagonists take place in a world which appearance is inspired in equal parts from the medioeval and rinascimental history of our planet, from the visions of classical and modern illustrators and architects, and from the experience of the authors with role playing games. In this world, allied reigns and nations have created an organization with the purpose of mantaining peace and order in the territories they control.

Arianne, Celine and Lucrezia are the three female protagonists of the series; they belong to the organization, which is called Overseas, and like the other agents they operate sometimes in the open but more frequently under cover.
