From Edge Role Playing Game "What is This Game About?:"
The Edge is, in the most basic terms, a fantasy RPG setting powered by the Rapidfire system. While it has a lot in common with other RPGs, the Edge has some features that make it unique. Unlike many other fantasy games out there, there are no elves, dwarves, gnomes, or orcs in the world, only humans. Humans are more than complicated enough to make an interesting game.
The Edge RPG focuses on fast, simple, and effective rules and emphasizes the importance of why characters do what they do, instead of just how they do it.
There are only 3 classes: Edgemasters, Chosen, and Dreamweavers, but each has many variations and options for customizable characters. Every character wields great "magical" power and influence right from the first session. Their power gives them the opportunity to make a real difference in the world, for good or for ill. As their powers grow, they can eventually influence world-shaking events and determine the course of history.
The game is set in the world of Deomeidh; a world very different from our own, with its own history, nations, peoples, and problems. Deomeidh is at a turning point in its history. After several decades of relative stability, events all over the continent are pointing towards massive upheaval. The characters can play a central role in the coming chaos, or they can use it as a backdrop to pursue their own desires.
