THE AGE OF LEGEND
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.
Bold heroes from all across Barsaive band together—ready to fight for life and freedom against the remaining Horrors and the oppressive Theran Empire, which seeks to bend the rebellious province again to their yoke. Through noble deeds and sacrifice, the heroes of the world forge Barsaive’s future, arming themselves for their daunting task with powerful magic and treasures.
The Earthdawn Player's Guide™ takes player characters from First to Eighth Circle in their Disciplines and contains revised game mechanics, spells, talents, skills, and much more!
The Revised Edition of Earthdawn® supersedes the Third Edition (ED3), previously published by RedBrick LLC. However, if you already own or are using ED3 rulebooks or sourcebooks, they are completely compatible with the Earthdawn Revised Edition.
This core rulebook is for players and Game Masters. For a complete Barsaive experience, the GM will require a copy of the Earthdawn Game Master's Guide™.
