You hold in your hands the guide to participating in a game of friends, where players can create heroes or villains — or something in between — which embark on legendary quests or take part in humorous misadventure.

This is Immortal Legacy

The Immortal Legacy game strives to blend classic fantasy with new ideas and concepts from other genres such as mystery, science fiction, horror, humor, and history. To achieve this end, Immortal Legacy gives players the tools to forge characters, places, and events, otherwise impossible in other games. Fully customizable characters, extensive options, and vivid source material allow players to break through the molds of fighter, cleric, thief, wizard.

Who You Need to Play

First, you need a Game Master — or GM for short. The GM knows the rules and runs the game, serving as both a story teller and an arbiter. Next, you need one or more players. Once you've got the team, then it's time to gather the supplies.

What You Need to Play

Each player will need the following:

  • A pencil.
  • A few ten-sided dice.
    • All rolls made in Immortal Legacy are made using a ten-sided die, also called a d10. The dice should be different in color from one another.
  • A character sheet.
    • One may be photocopied or scanned from the back of this handbook or downloaded from our website.
  • This book.
  • Imagination.

More addicted players might use things such as calculators, notepads, miniatures, maps, and caffeine.

Read this Book

Learn it, know it, love it. This book holds the key to a happy second childhood and a healthy adulthood. Imagination is what drives the environmentally friendly machine of human progress. Laziness and impatience degrade the soul, so don't skip any parts, slacker! Playing games and using your imagination are therapeutic, plus this book isn't that long.

About Role-playing

Role-playing games provide you the opportunity to create an alter ego that you can portray in a story.

What is this Role-playing Stuff?

Think of role-playing like a play or stage production. There is a story that is being told. The curtain comes up, the actors deliver their lines and interact with one another, the crew backstage moves the set and changes the scenes. Now, put that scene in someone's living room, or around a table in the basement. The actors are called players and the backstage crew is called the Game Master. The players have characters they create themselves which take part in an adventurous story that the GM sets up. The GM plays the part of all the extras, builds the set, sets the scene, conducts the pit orchestra, and guides the story for the players, who are center stage, driving the events that happen.

When it's all over and the curtain comes down, a vivid, memorable story has been created and the players delight in retelling their part in it. Role-playing is a game like any other, played this time with pen, paper, dice, and camaraderie.

Why People Role-play

Role-playing is an efficient way to relax, improve mental health, and escape the mounting pressures of the real world, if just for a few hours on the weekends.

You create a character, assign their attributes, talents, and flaws, and round out their personality. Voilà! You now have someone totally different whom you can explore. We all wonder what things might be like if we were different or if we lived in a different time and place. This is a rewarding way to explore that curiosity.

The world you live and breathe in now is the real one (sorry to disappoint). The one in which your character exists is imaginary (even though it's really cool).
