TIER The Enhanced Role-Playing Game 3rd Edition is a revolutionary tabletop RPG game that offers D&D style gameplay, but there are NO CLASSES!

TIER uses a system of Masteries, similar to Feats but much stronger. You start at level 1 with 3 or 4 masteries, depending on your race, and then gain more Masteries as you level-up. There are over 100+ Masteries to choose from, allowing you to make an infinite number of unique characters. We also added Psionics!

Characters can play from levels 1-40. You also gain experience and level-ups faster, which means more fun and less time waiting to get stronger.

Spellcasters now have more unique spells while warriors have Masteries that allow you to avoid, block, and/or reflect spells.

Characters also gain special Transformations at levels 16 and 36. Transformations significantly alter your character, providing additional bonuses, powers, spells, skills, ability scores, and unique physical and mental traits. There are about 36 different Transformations!

Most importantly, TIER only utilizes the 1D20 die, which reduces the number of dice rolls and number-crunching. Using less dice speeds up combat and allows more time for role-playing.

This product gives you everything needed to play the game, including game rules, magic items, monsters, spells, character sheets, multiple campaign settings, and sample characters, all with full color and b&w illustrations.

This book has been professionally reviewed by Roleplayers Chronicle, see quotes below:

"If you are a fan of the D&D 3.5 style of play this book might be a 10 for you." - Roleplayers Chronicle

"I really like some of the changes the developers of this game made." - Roleplayers Chronicle

"The TIER approach really stands out as you get to higher levels of play." - Roleplayers Chronicle

"Because there are no classes the player has much more flexibility which is great, the introduction of masteries which, in my view, are a combination of class features and feats, works really well." - Roleplayers Chronicle

"This book takes the place of the three traditional core rulebooks that we have come to know, which is a good thing. This system is designed to take characters into high-level play which has the added value of cutting out the cost of some additional books." - Roleplayers Chronicle

"I love the classless system as it allowed me to make the character I wanted to make, not yet another cookie cutter (insert class here). The masteries concept is great, it really trimmed off some of the feat fat that has bugged me for years." - Roleplayers Chronicle

"Check TIER out and even if you don’t completely switch over to its system, there is a lot of goodness in this product." - Roleplayers Chronicle

I have bought all the previous versions of TIER. Do I need 3rd Edition?

My biggest issue with previous TIER versions was that warriors still seemed lacking in power and skills compared to spell casters. TIER 3rd edition has made significant improvements to Masteries, which increases skills, offenses, and defenses for Masteries often taken by warriors. We also added Psionics, which are a lot of fun. Lastly, we did analyze and make improvements to multiple spells in game that did not work well in previous TIER editions. I also added a few more campaign settings.
BTW, this is the last and final edition of TIER, the game is 100% complete. I have perfected this game as much as possible and will not publish anymore editions.
If you wish to save money, maybe just buy the digital PDF and print whatever changes or added content you find.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
