ERA: Caliphport released

By on 25 October 2013

Caliphport – the first setting pack for ERA has been released and is now available as a pdf through DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.

Caliphport is an ‘Arabian Nights’ setting that was used as an alternative playtest setting for ERA. I have expanded the material within the setting and added some awesome artwork by Storn Cook and Nicholas Cloister.

At only $4/£2.50, alongside the ‘pay what you want’ core ERA rules, the experiment of making ERA a cheap and affordable ‘pick up and play’ game continues!

ERA has been a RPGnow #1 Hot 100 Seller

“This is a very fun game that is just about the perfect game for a quick run of fun with a limited number of players for an hour or two.” RPGnow reviewer, Luke G.

“…Era kept its promises: it’s short, complete, it works without asking the author about some unclear phrasing, and the cycle was finished, we wanted to start another one.” RPGnow reviewer, Benoit L.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
