Players take on the role of a sword wielding, modern day Immortal in a setting that may seem familiar to some. Reminiscent of a certain movie franchise and TV series, Legacy: War of Ages provides players with a very similar experience.
From the book: "In this role-playing game, the vehicle for your imagination is the Immortal. In Legacy: War of Ages, you portray an Immortal living in the Techno-Gothic environment of the United States of America in the early twenty-first century. This is not the only setting open to you: Immortals have been living among us since before the beginning of recorded history, and any epoch from the distant past or far future could easily be the scene for the intense and poignant struggles of Immortals."
