Death of Legends


Death of Legends is a dark-fantasy roleplaying game that tells the story of epic deeds against great odds.

Twenty years have passed since the Enemy was defeated and its armies vanquished.

Twenty years since a small group of heroes rose from obscurity to become the sThe City of Polaritytuff of legends, turning the tide of battle.

Twenty long years of peace and prosperity.

But now there are rumours that the Enemy has returned.

War is coming and nobody knows who can be trusted.

This is the story of the last great war against the Enemy.

This is the story of the Death of Legends.

Each player takes the role of a legendary hero, forges their path to greatness, then determines the fate of the Free Territories in a climactic struggle against a relentless, malevolent, Enemy. 


Death of Legends uses simple dice mechanics to allow players to construct a rich backstory for their characters, charting their path to legendary status. 

As the last war rages players narrate scenes detailing the great battles, influencing the outcome though the heroism of their characters, and tracking the progress of the war on a bespoke fantasy map.

In the Legends darkest hour a weapon of great power is found capable of destroying the Enemy, and the characters must decide which of their number can be trusted to resist the Lure of the Enemy.

This is a complete game for 3-6 players (there is no GM), completed within a single-session of play.

Death of Legends was awarded an Indie Groundbreaker Award for Best Rules.

Interesting idea, though I wish the PDF was higher quality. It is clear the pictures in it suffer seriously from jpg artifacting, which makes many pages look really "dirty". Since the PDF is free, it is going to be a lot of people's first experience with this publisher. I went ahead and bought the non-free expansion ("First Kingdoms") and the first half of that book looks terrific, but as soon as you get to the player handouts the same problem arises there, too.

Hi Carl, thanks for the feedback. I've added a high-resolution version of the game for an optimum reading (and gaming) experience.

Original electronic
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.
