Wasted Lands: The Dreaming Age Role Playing Game

ADD TO WISHLIST >

The Old Ones are gone...

Stories tell of the day when the skies fell in showers of fiery rock, when the world groaned and shifted, the great beasts of the Old Ones died in an instant, and the stars themselves changed, sending the Old Ones into a deep, eternal slumber. Humankind, now free from the cruel grasp of our former masters, now rules the world from the shining kingdoms the Other Gods left behind.

We now strive against the remaining minions of the Other Gods, their remaining cults, and a world ravaged by the energies of the Deeper Dark. Some with names like Isis, Odin, Quetzalcouatl, Bel, Hecate, Minerva, Marduk, and others will forge legends that remain through the ages.

This is your story.

This is the birth of gods.

Wasted Lands: The Dreaming Age is a game of swords and sorcery in a savage lost epoch, set millions of years ago. Instead of playing adventurers tied to the service of mythological deities, you play the all-too-mortal, protohuman origins of the gods of classic mythology, whose stories will inform our own ancestral memories and ancient civilizations. As you engage with your mythology (and others), you gain special powers that will lead you on the path of apotheosis.

The game is offered as a two-volume set: the Wasted Lands: The Dreaming Age Role Playing Game, which contains all the rules of play, and The Gazetteer of the Dreaming Age and Campaign Guide, which contains the setting, bestiary, and game master information.

Within Volume 1 you will find:

  • Complete rules for running a game of swords and sorcery, high fantasy, traditional fantasy, or any type of fantasy play you can imagine
  • Seven character classes: the Archer, Necromancer, Psychic, Renegade, Sage, Sorcerer, and Warrior
  • Simple, intuitive rules that encourage creative play and will feel familiar to players of any version of the World's Most Famous RPG
  • Divine touchstones that give a touch of mystic power on the characters' path to apotheosis
  • Customizable levels of play to set your game as gritty or cinematic as you like
  • Complete rules for games Powered by O.G.R.E.S. or Powered by O.R.C.S., as you choose!
  • Guidelines for conversion to a variety of unified mechanics - roll high, percentile, and dice pools
  • Optional rules for skills, magical duels, enhanced combat nonhuman species, and human cultural backgrounds
  • And more!

The New Class of Old School takes on swords, sorcery, and Yog-Sothothery! The horrors of the Dreaming Age Call. Will you make your mark?

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.
