Mass Effect AGE By Clemens Kander
What will you find in here? You wont find the basic rules of Dragon Age RPG in here. This is an expansion to the original game, that takes the AGE mechanics and puts it into the Mass Effect universe. You will find new rules or rule adaptions (like the Health/Armor/Shield mechanic for example) new classes, talents, Biotic and Tech abilities, items and adversaries. You will find new focuses, but you wont find an explanation about focuses in general, what bonuses they give or how they work exactly. You wont find rules for basic, opposed and advanced ability tests or combat mechanics. You will find new stunts, but I will not enlighten you on how to generate and use stunt points. All of those rules are included in Dragon Age RPG Set 1. It is a great game, it is fun and thrilling, so one thing you will definately find here is a recommendation to buy it. Please not that I personally am not affiliated with GreenRonin Publishing or BioWare this is purely a fan project, and once youve got the Dragon Age RPG, you will be free to use this expansion as you like. If you have suggestions or wishes for future editions, feel free to visit the Mass Effect AGE thread on the Green Ronin forums (http://www.greenronin.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=10703) and leave a comment.

Drell The drell are a bipedal reptiloid species, originating from the planet Rakhana. The already dry planet had become unliveable on about two centuries ago, which led to the hanar rescuing approximately 375.000 drell and bringing them to their own homeworld on Kahje. Those drell and the hanar have lived in a close relationship since then, so close that many young drell even adopt the hanar beliefs of the Enkindlers.
