Our forum software is outdated and no longer maintainable.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.
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.
Happy Easter wishes to everyone! The release of the book is looming on the horizon, so here is a PDF preview of the book's covers, credits, table of contents, and the Getting Started chapter. Enjoy!
