Era: The Empowered - Core Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

Unleash your inner superhero (or villain) across all sub-genres of super-powered stories! Emerge as one of the first Empowered, fight off Atlantis, the Old Gods and the Assassins Guild, face a planetary threat and much, much more...

Only you can save our world!

Being Empowered offers great potential, but it is up to you how you will use your power: will you become a champion to the people, or strike fear into their hearts?

Your choices will shape the world around you as you move forward through the events which Era: The Empowered offers.

Era: The Empowered offers the chance to play any superhero story you could possibly want, all in one book. Just by choosing where in the sequence of events you play, you can do anything from being an emerging superhuman in a world that doesn't understand you to teaming up to fight off hordes of supervillains or facing down planetary threats from outer space!

  • Seven Events, each offering a different type of gameplay!
  • Full rules for the Era d10 system – no need to pick up various other rulebooks, everything is right here (although expansions offer different options)!
  • 45 Example Power Sets, along with all of the information needed to make your own!
  • An array of campaign sessions, GM advice, customisation tips and much, much more!

Not through DriveThruRPG, because I found the quality of what is output very disappointing compared to what I print and store.

You can get Paperback versions from our website:

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.
