Second Age of Walkers
Giant Mechs Walk The Earth
An age of destruction paved the way for the Second Age of Walkers. Life
in DragonMech depends on the gigantic mechanized walkers that provide safety,
shelter, and transportation. Behold a world reshaped by the mech!
A Fantasy World Unlike Any Other
This hardcover campaign sourcebook offers the first detailed look at
the world of DragonMech. Learn about the autocratic Stenian Confederacy,
the mysterious Irontooth Clans, the ambitious Legion, and the ephemeral
L'arile Nation, including new feats, mechs, and classes that allow you
to personalize characters from those factions. Along the way, find your
own answers to the mysteries of the Gearwrights Guild: Was there really
a First Age of Walkers before the dawn of magic?
Designed for use with DragonMech, Second Age of Walkers includes:
A comprehensive look at the four major factions shaping the world of DragonMech,
including maps of their territory, descriptions of major personalities,
and gazetteers of three important city-mechs: Durgan-lok, the first city-mech
ever built; Haven, the human city-mech that threatens dwarven dominance;
and Tannanliel, the reclusive magic-fueled city-mech of the elves
Everything a GM needs to shape adventures around the major themes of each
faction: the Stenian military, the itinerant human tribes that now make
up the Legion, the myriad individual clans of the Irontooth, of which 10
are examined in detail; and the strange magical secrets of the elves and
their well-protected forests
Stats for dozens of important NPCs, including Shar Thizdic, Tannan, and
the most notorious of the Irontooth raiders
Everything a player need to build characters from each of the major factions,
including 5 new prestige classes, a new core class variant, and 49 new
feats, organized according to the faction in which they originate
56 new spells, including the magic used by the Irontooth to steal spirits
and bind them to mechs, the agricultural magic of the Legion tribes, and
the mech-augmenting spells of the elves
And more: rules and background for mechanical sculpture; details on the
inner workings of the Gearwrights Guild; background on the dwarven clans;
rules for spirit-powered mechs and the shintaji spirit-stealers of the
Irontooth; new equipment; 13 new mechs (not counting the city-mechs); and
Rules Set: d20 v3.5.

World Staff Review: 4 stars. "The 2nd Age of Walkers isn't the last
word on Dragonmech. There are too many other interesting areas to explore.
However, for those looking to expand their understanding of the core four
factions and see examples of how they may want to create their own Irontooth
Clans or see how the Legion works, this book is a great sourcebook."
Report: 4-1/2 stars. "It's worth it. If you're the type of gamer who
loves an endlessly interesting world to play with; save your pennies and
trek on down to your gaming shop. Especially if you're a GM. You'll have
adventure ideas poring out within an hour."
