Dragon Age RPG

Dark Fantasy Roleplaying

Ages have passed since the last horrific Blight ravaged the world of Thedas. Some thought the current era, the Dragon Age, would pass without a Blight as well. They were wrong. Beneath the ground, darkspawn stir. A new archdemon has risen and with it a Blight that scourges the lands and darkens the skies. The nations of Thedas need a new generation of heroes. Will you answer the call?

Green Ronin Publishing brings fantasy roleplaying back to its dark and gritty roots with the Dragon Age RPG. Based on the hugely popular video games, the Dragon Age RPG brings the excitement of BioWare's rich fantasy world to the tabletop. Designed by award-winning author Chris Pramas (Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Freeport),Dragon Age features an original game system (the Adventure Game Engine) that's both easy to learn and exciting to play.

The Dragon Age RPG is the perfect portal to tabletop roleplaying. The Adventure Game Engine's rules run on your wits and a roll of the dice. Dragon Age also features an innovative stunt system that keeps combat and spellcasting tense and exciting.

So gather your friends, grab some dice, and get ready to enter a gripping world of heroic challenges and villainous rivals, of brave knights and bloodthirsty darkspawn, of mysterious gods and menacing demons—the world of Dragon Age!
