It’s worth saying that, on the Kickstarter, you can get the Rulebook Primer for just £1!
Today, I’m going to talk about the Rulebook Primer, what it’s used for and why it exists!
The Rulebook Primer, which costs £5 in Digital and £10 in Paperback, actually has a few purposes.
The first, and the thing that the majority of people use it for, is as a “trial version” of the Core Rulebook. It provides the rules you need to play, along with a good starter selection of Equipment (anything a beginning character can ordinarily choose is included).
It doesn’t give much background for the world, however, providing only a one-page summary of what the world is like to get people started on Era: Survival. It has limited room for growth due to the limited equipment and character creation options when compared to the Core Rulebook.
The other thing that it’s used for is as a Player’s Guide. It provides everything that people need in order to create a starting character, guides through levelling up and includes the table for rolling if there aren’t cards. This allows the players to set up relatively independently with a significantly cheaper book at the start of the game, and check the rules at the same time!
The Rulebook Primer is available on both the Kickstarter and the Shades of Vengeance store, and is the cheapest and fastest way to get into an adventure on Gaia.
