Legacy: Life Among the Ruins - The Engine of Life Supplement



The Fall shattered the World Before, but we’ve made it through catastrophes before. Every time our world falls apart, we’ve found a way to survive - and not just endure, but work together with friends new and old to build a new life.

In this book you’ll find a range of ways to point your game of Legacy: Life Among the Ruins towards an eventual rebirth. These include:

  • New rules segments: Prophet characters, a Coda for your character’s story, beautiful Havens and Festivals you can return to from age to age.
  • Essays on life and rebirth: Love by Sawyer Rankin, Tradition by Chris Farnell, and Culture and Religion by James Mendez Hodes.
  • Six new families: Take control of the geo-engineering Architects of Tomorrow, the diverse Coalition, the ethereal Serene Choir and more.
  • Six new character playbooks: Create beautiful art with the Beacon, build alliances and romances with the Matchmaker, and hint at humanity’s future with the supernatural Prodigy.
  • Four new wonders: Change the world with the Aerie, the Green Defiance, the Transport Hub and the Rising Faith.
  • A new Quickstart: Rally your friends and neighbours and save your city from the apocalypse in Burning Down Babylon.

Is this for 1st or 2nd edition?

First off, _love_ this setting and the supplements. On trying to create a Serene Choir family though, I noticed that the Stats story options are completely different in the book vs in the handouts. The book asks more about the family, while the handouts ask more about The Presence. Not sure which it should be.

The Masquerade playbook strategy mentions a move called "requiem for a dream" which is found nowhere else in the book. Is it an error or??

Apologies for that typo - Requiem for a Dream was the old name for the move that’s now listed as Death Masks.

So this book makes reference to another book called End Game several times, but I haven't been able to find it on drivethrurpg or on your website. Is it not out yet?

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.
