Legacy: Godsend (Worlds of Legacy 3) PDF


These are times of trouble: the days are numbered. Legends told us about them. We have names for them in our sacred scriptures: the Ragnarök, the War of Gods, the Apocalypse, the Arrival of Avatars, the Eternal Night, the Infinite Void.

The end of days.

But we are not alone, we are not powerless: the gods are walking among us. They are here to guide us, to save the world as we know it - or to help us reach the land of the Dead.
If we pray faithfully enough and prove our worthiness, perhaps we can be spared.

In Godsend you roam the lands as the avatar of your god, cursing mere mortals and presenting gifts the chosen ones. Your memories are numerous, made of the lives of your predecessors, your power is almost limitless. Will you use it to fulfill the will of your god? Or, as the end times draw near, will you try to save the world?

Godsend is an alternate setting for Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2nd Edition focusing on epic mythology and the end of days.

Key Features:

  • As you are masters of fate, random chance plays no role in this game. Play with entirely diceless version of the Apocalypse World system, and bend the world to your will.
  • Embody one of six divine Domains - War, Trickery, Knowledge and more.
  • Play the avatar of another player’s god, using one of eight Callings - the Angel, the Juggernaut, the Prophet and more.
  • Tell tales of heroism and loss as you guide the world towards salvation - or ruin.
  • Ready to Go: With complete game rules, examples of play, GM advice and example antagonists and mythic items, this book has everything you need to play.

This looks fascinating. Does this require the Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2nd Edition book, or is it self-contained?

I understand that. But another title in the same line, the "Rhapsody of Blood" ( ) mentions that it is "Ready to Go: With complete game rules, examples of play, GM advice and a prologue that teaches you the game as you go, this book has everything you need to play."

I'd assume that means if you are interested in the Rhapsody of Blood world, you can just buy that book and do not need to have Legacy 2nd Ed. There's no such note here, though, so I wasn't clear on if that was the case with this one, or if you'd also need to have Legacy 2nd Ed. to be able to use it.

Godsend is standalone - you don't need to have Legacy to play it at all, though some parts of the GM advice and a few other points in the text refer to parts of the core book. Thanks!

Thank you! :-) Obviously probably beneficial to ultimately have both, but just wasn't sure if it was absolutely required. Thanks for the answer, James. :-)

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.
