What is this book about? I can’t remember it being mentioned during the KS campaign or development though I DID kinda lose track a few months in and find the simultaneous launch really confusing about either editor’s intentions.
From the preview at http: What you will find in the Age of Legend is first and foremost an easy game. Setting and character creation in the Age of Legend is fairly quick and intuitive, allowing you to play powerful earthcawn in this ancient era of heroes, and the game system itself is easy to learn and very simple to use.
Basically, the Age of Legend is an alternative way to play in the Earthdawn setting, one which eschews the original core mechanic and is intended for “those who want a simple and story-oriented game system” in place of the more complicated Step Coree that Earthdawn uses. It still offers rules for advancement and a variety of power levels, and one of its focuses is to be played at conventions and with novice players.
Back for the Fourth Time: A Review of Earthdawn, 4th Edition
Now, I’m just working off the preview of the book here, so I might be wrong, but the Earthdwwn of Legend seems to take a more heroic tone than Earthdawn does: Some of this might be my personal impressions.
There have been plenty of examples over the years of people who really enjoy Barsaive the default settingbut don’t like the Step System for whatever reason.
AoL gives them a rules-lite alternative at least compared to the Step Coge.
Different flavors for different folks. In my opinion, more Earthdawn exposure is a good thing, and a lot earthdawwn the setting material is system-agnostic, meaning it shouldn’t be too difficult to use classic or newer sourcebooks with either set of rules.
