Modern AGE is a roleplaying game that lets you have exciting adventures in any era from the Industrial Revolution to the near future. The game can handle everything from two-fisted action to urban fantasy to weird conspiracies. Modern AGE uses the Adventure Game Engine (AGE), the ENnie Award-winning system made popular by the Dragon Age, Fantasy AGE, and Blue Rose RPGs. The Basic Rulebook includes a new, classless implementation of the AGE system, 20 levels of advancement, an innovative stunt system, psychic and magic powers, rules for chases, player and GM advice, and an introductory adventure so you can hit the ground running. Options let you tune the rules for grim and gritty stories, high adventure, or something in between. Enter the Modern AGE!
The World of Lazarus is the first campaign setting for Green Ronin’s new Modern AGE RPG. Based on the critically acclaimed Lazarus series by Greg Rucka and Michael Lark and presented by Image Comics, the book brings this noir dystopia to tabletop roleplaying games. In the near future, time has rendered death obsolete, and life infinitely cheap. In the wake of governments’ failure and global upheaval, the Families stepped in and divvied up the world. Now peace and order reign in a world of technological marvels and neo-feudalism. The Families quietly war with one another, wagering the lives of loyal Serfs while they relax in lives of indulgence, all while the Waste—those left behind by this new order—struggle daily for base survival. Play members of a Family in the highest of high-stakes game, Serfs fighting for their Family’s interests to maintain order and safety, or disaffected Waste fighting for a better life in the burned ruins of the old world. The World of Lazarus requires the Modern AGE Basic Rulebook for use.
