Earthdawn Player's Guide (Revised Edition)



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® makes some changes to content in 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.

Earthdawn is the FASA fantasy heartbreak - it's a unique fantasy roleplay, ostensibly tied in to the Shadowrun universe, with an interesting dice mechanic and small, fanatical fanbase. With numerous novel tie-ins and a plethora of sourcebooks from the [...]

The classic Earthdawn is back. With what I consider to be one of the best systems of all tabletop games and an intriguing and unique setting, this venerable title once again sees the light of day with the resurrection of FASA as a company, and it's gre [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
