I have recorded a short video overview of Earthdawn: Age of Legend by Vagrant Workshop. This is an amazing game with brilliant production values based on FASA’s setting and the FU rules.
I do apologise for the poor quality of the video, between using a phone, my dodgy video skills and a quality drop when uploading (my internet sucks at the moment!), it is not great. I do hope it gives you some insight into the game, though.
Hello Mr. Nathan Russell,
I just bought the EarthDawn edition based on FU for $17 pdf. I did not buy it for the setting but for the new and additional rules for the FU system. I was wondering if you could save me some time and point out what was changed and what was added to the FU in the EarthDawn book and which pages they may be found on. If you don’t have the time that is ok as I will eventually (slowly) do it.
Thank you for such an awsome system of FU. That is my go to system for everything for the past few years. I wish I had known about it much earlier.
Merry Christmas and a happy 2017 New Year.
Merry Christmas to you, too, Virginian John! I have really appreciated your support and enthusiasm for FU over the years.
EarthDawn: Age of Legends is an amazing piece of work, filled with detail about the world. As far as the key changes from basic FU:
– A modified die mechanism (you roll 1d6 and bonus/penalty dice that can adjust the d6 result). Page 36.
– Disciplines are like character classes that give access to a bunch of “talents” which are cool abilities or specialised skill sets (like sky sailing or talking to animals). Disciplines are on page 73 and Talents are on page 91.
– Some characters can use magic. Spells are on page 131. To cast a spell you have to spend a Karma point (FU point) and make a roll.
– There are also cool rules for airships and river boats from page 179.
A Very Merry Christmas Mr. Nathan & Russell Family,
No, all the thanks goes to you for such a easy, fast, and fun rpg system. I appreciate your time in pointing out those sections and for saving me time.
May God bless your home with peace, joy, and love. May this Christmas end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year. Here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
A very belated Thank You! We had a very enjoyable Christmas and New Year – I hope you did, too.
