Whether of noble blood or
more humble stock, you too may
become a Legend...
The Legend of Yore was Galileo Games very first published product, a fantasy role-playing game set in a unique world. The Legend of Yore's claim to fame is a simple, one-roll mechanic that intrudes minimally on game play.
Galileo Games is not longer supporting this line, since The Legend of Yore was written in 1996 and has long since begun to show its age.
