A while ago I downloaded the quick start rules for Dragon Age and filed it away. Just recently my son and I gave them a try. The rules where quick and fun. The system uses 3D6 with a different colored die called a "dragon" die. Certain rolls result in what's called stunt points that can be spent on special effects during combat. It was a fun twist of play.
I downloaded the core book when it came out not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised with the character creation and game play rules. The book also includes a detailed history and description of the world the characters adventure in. highlights include various organizations that characters can join like secret societies as well as rules to build organizations.
I've never played the video game so I'm not versed as to how closely the table top game follows it. The rules are easy to explain and I see this book as a great addition to any Fantasy genre's fan game nights.
