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.
The following article shows you what dice to use in Earthdawn: The Age of Legend, and gives an example on how to customize them. Karma is used quite a lot too, so having a bowl of Karma Tokens at your table is highly recommended.
