ERA: Epic Storytelling Game

By on 8 September 2013

ERA is a roleplaying game designed for small group play (1-2 players plus a storyteller) and quick play, with a session being completed in around an hour.

In ERA, you take the role of Legends – classic solo heroes (think ‘Conan‘, ‘Hercules‘ or ‘Judge Dredd‘ – or legendary partnerships (think ‘Fafhrd and Grey Mouser‘, ‘Han Solo andChewbacca‘ or ‘Batman and Robin‘) – and battle against a variety of epic obstacles as you progress on your heroic quest.

The greatest heroes do not always rely upon their strength of arms and each ERA adventure includes puzzles, chases, oration and moments of great knowledge alongside pulse-pounding action.

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
