Combat is deadly. Magic is rare. Where you come from is important. Heroes are born only in the moment when terrifying risk meets overwhelming need. Epic Role Playing is a next generation fantasy RPG: intense and fast-paced tactical combat, six innovative branches of magic, and culturally-based character development. This exciting volume revises, updates, and combines the Epic Role Playing Rules Manual and Book of the Arcane. In addition, a sample campaign setting (the Realm of Rullaea) and an excerpt from the Bestiary are included to provide Game Masters and players all of the essentials needed to play in one volume. The Epic Role Playing Game Manual makes gaming easier with numerous quick reference boxes, a glossary, ready-to-use forms, and integration with www.epicrpg.com.
