Earthdawn: The Age of Legend

Published on 16.12.2015 | Updated on 15.04.2016

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. It was an age of heroes, an age of fantastical deeds and mythical stories. It was the Age of Legend. Now, bold heroes from across Barsaive band together to fight for life and freedom against the remaining Horrors and the oppressive Theran Empire. Through noble deeds and sacrifice, the heroes of the world forge Barsaive's future, arming themselves for their daunting task with powerful magical spells and treasures.

Earthdawn: The Age of Legend is a fantasy roleplaying game set in a world of high adventure, high magic, and terrible danger. Featuring all-new story-oriented rules, the game is easy to learn and handle, ideal for one-shots, convention games, and introductory games—even for kids! Designed with the rich setting material published for Earthdawn in mind, Earthdawn: The Age of Legend can be used with any existing collection of Earthdawn books (no matter which edition), or as a starting point to dive into the Earthdawn universe.

Darranis Adventure Pack

Published on 01.05.2018

The end of the Scourge promised wealth and prosperity for many towns and cities across Barsaive. Darranis has been a boomtown for a while, with no signs of slowing down. As a vital link between Throal and the Serpent River, the town has turned from a small pre-Scourge village into a prospering center of trade and travel. But it is also a town divided between the haves and the have-nots, a safe haven and stopping point for many spies and smugglers. Despair lurks just underneath the tidy and busy surface...

Darranis is an adventure pack for Earthdawn: The Age of Legend. It contains a description of the the town and its importance for trade and travel between the Serpent River and Throal, three adventures set in and around Darranis, and a group of pre-generated characters waiting to be confronted with moral conflicts, corrupted magic items, and bitter rivalries!

The Darranis Adventure Pack is designed for use with Earthdawn: The Age of Legend, but can easily be adapted to any other edition of the game.
