We all make mistakes in life. Sometimes our sins are so grave that our souls attract the attention of something beyond the world we know. There are things out there between life and death, and they dwell in the Dark Places of the human soul. As I crossed the threshold between life and death, between light and dark, I became something new–a Shadower. I have a new chance at life and the power to exceed my wildest imagination. But I am not alone, and if they are at all the kind of men and women that I was in life... they cannot be trusted.
–Sheluvi, Obsidian Noble
We're pleased to announce that our thrilling new tabletop game–Jeremiah Schwennen's Dark Places–is now available!
Dark Places is a storytelling game of mystery and magic set in the dark corners of an afterlife gone wrong. This tabletop roleplaying game features a slick, gamemasterless play style immersing four players in the politics and dangers of the Dark. Experience a shared world of tragedy, darkness, and–in its own twisted way–triumph. Dark Places requires no gamemaster or referee, it invites all players to equally share the experience of telling the story of their Shadowers and the mysteries of the Dark. The core rulebook contains all the rules required to tell a tale of the rise and fall of those consigned to the Dark Places.

Our forum software is outdated and no longer maintainable. The forum traffic we had was always very slow because almost all of the discussions about our games happen elsewhere–rpg.net, tanelorn.net, Google+ groups and communities, facebook groups–so we decided to shut the forums on this site down entirely. See you on another site!
An updated version of the Earthdawn: The Age of Legend eBook is now available. We have caught a couple of errata (click here for more information). We also added a second file optimized for reading, printing, and use at the gaming table.
The main file represents a copy of the book, which was formatted and filled with illustrations to look good in print. It doesn't display well on some devices due to the heavy load of graphics and transparency effects, and also uses a quadratic format that doesn't scale well on most displays.
The additional second file breaks with the quadratic format we use for print, and displays better and faster on all devices. The new format is also printerfriendly and contains more bookmarks.
From the book's back cover:
Before science, before history, an era of magic existed in our world's dim past. Magic flowed freely, touching every aspect of the lives of men and women of the Namegiver races. Bold heroes from all across the land band together, arming themselves with powerful magical spells and treasures, ready to fight for life and freedom. It was an age of fantastical deeds and mythical stories.
It was the Age of Legend.
Earthdawn: The Age of Legend is a roleplaying game set in a world of high adventure, high magic, and terrible danger. Story-based mechanics, easy to learn and intuitive to use, allow you to create exciting stories about powerful adepts in this ancient era of heroes. This book contains all the rules you need to play, including an introduction to the world of Earthdawn.
