The Fantasy AGE Basic Rulebook is your entry point to tabletop roleplaying. Now you can be the hero in your own sword and sorcery adventures!

This is the game played on Wil Wheaton’s new tabletop RPG show, Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana

The Adventure Game Engine (AGE) rules are easy to learn, and feature an innovative stunt system that keeps the action tense and exciting. This Basic Rulebook includes full 20 level advancement for all three classes, a new magic system, advice for players and GMs, and an introductory adventure so you can get started right away. You can use Fantasy AGE to run adventures in the campaign setting of your choice or a world of your own creation. A new AGE is upon us!

Want to know more about how Fantasy AGE works in play? See it in action with Wil Wheaton and friends, in Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana, on Geek & Sundry. Preview video linked below.

NOTE: This book is available as part of a print pre-order package on the Green Ronin site and through participating brick and mortar stores.

It's a shame this game has been abandoned by Green Ronin. It's a well done system with only a few flaws (biggest being encounter building for the GM).
It just seems that is Green Ronin's way though- make a product with a few supplements and then promptly do nothing with it (FA, DA, T20, etc).
Very unfortunate.

Thankfully, people at Goggle+ and other sites have been doing Green Ronin's job of 'completing' FAGE.
After purchasing FAGE, and reading it, I made my review.
I later wanted to add more. My gripe being:
I could have purchased 2 or more FULL RPGs at this price, considering what you get for the price: a bare framework of rules, a very minor bestiary, etc.
So basically, a frame with little 'covering'. Most RPGs have a background, decent bestiary, etc, to make a full rule set.
The basic rules are 'very lite'. They show promise, but I'm wondering how much GR will make us pay for the 'advanced/full' version.
Rule for crafting your own races would have been good.

The Titansgrave shows have certainly charmed people into getting it.
It's not a bad system, but £10.73/$15.95 seems too much for a bare/basic rulebook, when you can get 2 or more RPGs for the same price.
Perhaps £5 or less would have been OK.

Apart from that gripe; the system is OK,...See more

I'm a little disappointed that there is no mention of guidelines to craft your own races either in the core book or in a supplement. As a generic system, it seems like it should be more friendly toward adapting more varied character types. There's also a lack of shapeshifters which is odd given it comes from Dragon Age which includes shapeshifters.

Found it.
This seems to be it:

Is this gonna be updated to include the errata in the 2nd printing hardback? Dragon Age Set 1 was never updated on here, so I'm not holding my breath...

Brilliant rule set with accessible mechanics. Medium level of crunch, and lots of little touches make this one a winner!
