Era: Survival - Definitive Edition Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

A hundred years ago, a biological weapon was set off... or did a parasite evolve? Who cares, really? It was airborne, infectious and attacked Humans – that’s the point.

There is no chance to save our species here... there is just a chance to live to tomorrow.

Step into the world of Gaia and try to survive its harsh environment, the Infected "shamblers" as well as the much more deadly "mutants", while navigating the complex areas of control which the thirteen different factions claim.

Gather Brass empty cases to buy food and equipment, head out as a Vault Hunter seeking the lost treasures from before the Cataclysm, or just run odd jobs for the people who need them.

This book contains a full introduction to the world of Gaia, a complete guide to character creation, a huge list of weapons, equipment and vehicles which might be found, the rules – complete with worked examples – plus a section for the GM which contains everything from sample campaigns to premade characters. It’s everything you need to play hundreds of games of Era: Survival!

This Definitive Edition rulebook contains two expansions said to be "vital to gameplay" by reviewers:

The Infected Manual offers 100 different modifications for the Infected, allowing a huge variations in what you might encounter.

Tales of the Outlands offers information about what happens beyond the immediate control of Humanity, where the Defenders are not protecting people from the stronger - and stranger - creatures of Gaia... along with equipment to survive it!

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.
