Our games is part of the large multi chapter NERO Tyrran campaign. All games use the same ruleset.

To help those new to NERO master the rules we have provided Rules Summaries:

The full rules and chapter specific notes

All NERO chapters use the same ruleset: NERO Rule Book 9th Edition and the simplified and streamlined Revised Race Rules and the current errata part 1 and part 2.

Chapter Options

There are three options described in the full rules which a chapter can choose to use which speed play. Our chapter uses the all three: Cast on the Fly, Automax, and the Limited Reset at 6 a.m. We allow you to have five attuned magic items at a time. (If you carry more magic items you must have a way to indicate which items are attuned and spend a full minute to switch one of your items for another.)


Kaurath also uses some of the national play-test rules.

See the NERO International playtest folder for the current copies of all play-test rules.

Every game we have some standard announcements about how things work at our camp site, rules clarifications, and chapter policies. You will need to read and accept these before you register to play.


There is a national playtest in place which eases the casting of Formal Magics and allows experienced players to marshall almost all Formals with a little support from the Logistics Team.

Here at NERO Hartford and in some other local chapters we have special rules which encourage and reward more interesting Formal Magical castings which involve more players and have a more immersive feeling to them.
