Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What IS Freeform?
A: The idea that besides simple information and guidelines a person can run any sort of story as a game.
Q: What does this game/community thing cost?
A: Check out the E-Books page for the books and the GM Tools page for Printable Materials.
Q: What do you play this game on?
A: Eon Legacy is a freeform Role Playing Game. We suggest around a table with some of the important information printed out for personal use. Some people like to memorize or keep their info on their phone since the system can be done in shorthand. Other people just go anywhere and use it as a conversation filler...you can Play Eon Legacy anywhere you can vocally communicate between yourself and the Storyteller.
- Q: What can this game do that others cant?
A: Eon Legacy works as an "Open Ended" and "Unbound Content" RPG. The Sourcebook gives you the guidelines to make worlds, universes, and all the creatures within them with very simple steps and structure. This means if your in the mood for a "Gothic Thriller" you can make it happen or if you want "Space Opera" thats only a few more moments of brain storming on the Storyteller's part!
Q: How many people can play at once in a "Session"?
A: An Ideal player group is 4-7 people. The maximum player group without having to use multiple Storytellers is about 12 but if someone wants to have a go and are up to the task of leading more through a storyline then by all means do it!
Q: I want my friends to get this game but they don't have the money for an E-book. Can't I just print everything out?
A: Eon Legacy is a game that is meant to be controlled by the GM/Storyteller but not to wind up someones copy shop sourcebook, if you own an E-book you have a right to print out a copy but unless it's an official dustcover its not the whole thing not providing support for the original writers.. Our Terms of Services and Copyright state that the game is for private use only so as long as you arn't "Reselling" or "Gifting" the game as a whole or in parts. A page or two won't hurt for your friend to keep as a quick refrence but when whole books are made without liscense we can't offer any support and frown upon piracy of a product that took years to produce.
Q: When do expansions come out?
A: Once we reach a sales milestone we can produce the next installment. While the current expansion IS being written RIGHT NOW the artists still need to be paid for and costs of production met to make something worthwhile.
