Indie RPG Aeternal Legends is being relaunched this week, giving players who missed its 2007 release another chance to explore a contemporary world that blends politics and modern culture with high fantasy and a barely concealed undercurrent of magical power. The entire rulebook will be available as a free download until the end of Gen Con this weekend, so there’s no excuse not to check it out.

Aeternal Legends was described to me by co-creator Malcolm Sheppard as, “Gaiman and Rowlingesque fantasy mixed with British comic-auteur occultist sensibilities, aggressively applied to the cliches of fantasy games. Yep: It’s all about the elves and dwarves and such, but I think we’ve retooled it to make them more than just set dressing.”

But you don’t even have to take Malcolm’s word for it, because right now, Aeternal Legends can be downloaded for free from RPGNow. On top of that, the download includes a coupon code good for $11 off the price of the print version at This looks like a fun game set in an intriguing world that can accommodate lots of different play styles — look for a full review of Aeternal Legends next week!

    Alright, I’ll bite. I’ll download it. If I think I’ll use it, I’ll certainly buy the Lulu one; I am not a .pdf guy. So. Consider it a victory; I would have never heard of it or considered it, but I clicked through to the download. Can’t promise I’ll buy the book, but I certainly am interested.

    Downloading. Free stuuf is always good. I’ll be honest and say I’m not likely to buy it, but RPGs seem too cooperative for my friends.

    RPGs seem too cooperative, huh? Consider running a game of Paranoia!
