Era: Lyres - Definitive Edition

Watermarked PDF

“Adventuring? You must be kidding me. That sounds dangerous… not to mention plain unsanitary!”

– Anonymous

In Era: Lyres, you are Bards, Rogues and Warriors in the medieval city of Yarnolth. You need to make a living, just like everyone else... but you aren’t dumb enough to go fighting Skeletons and Zombies in crypts, or to tangle with Vampires.

Instead, you stay in the cities (the bars, mostly!), entertaining people with stories of your adventures (which are almost certainly completely untrue!). In return, if you provide them an engaging and entertaining evening, they will reward you with gold and glory – all of the perks of adventuring with none of the risk!

A lot of money and fame can be made by the right group working together in the Yarnolth!

This Definitive Edition Rulebook contains everything you need to play hundreds of games of Era: Lyres! It includes a guide to character creation and equipment, all of the rules and even sample characters and suggestions for the GM to make things more interesting! Most importantly, it contains the benefit of years of experience running the game, enahnced rewards for the GM, a rewritten Rules section and more!

Hi there. Saw your video, which was a nice intro to this game, but when I wanted to see a better look at the layout of the book, I noticed that the Full-size preview wasn't working. Just thought that you'd want to know.

I have no idea what's going on there! The Flash preview seems to work, and the Full-Size Preview worked for a few seconds and then died. It's nothing on the setup end - I'll raise it with DriveThruRPG to find out what's going on. Thanks so much for mentioning 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.
