During its original publication run, many people became frustrated with how long it took Green Ronin to release the individual box sets that comprised the Dragon Age core rules. While that's understandable, we should also evalute the quality of the end result. The Dragon Age Core Rulebook might be the single best RPG product ever concieved by humans. This one book provides comprehensive lore on Thedas. The tome also gifts us with complete rules on every possible encounter type, from blood soaked alleyway combat to political intriegue in a ball room that Marie Antoinette would call decadent. In one release, Dragon Age becomes more layered and detailed then most long game lines. The vast majority of core rulebooks claim to have everything you will ever need. This one delivers. This book is so good, its ruined other products for me. Read this, and your definition of "world building release" will change forever. Its not the cheapest core on DriveThruRPG, but spend the thirty bones. You will probably regret your current lover more then buying this book.
