eoris-essenceVisions of Essence is a small RPG company with big ideas and a grand RPG setting. Their game, Eoris Essence, will require only a single core book when it is released later this month, but if the previews and web site are any indication, that book will be stunning! It’s a good thing too, because the background story—a war between earlier and later generations of angels over the fate of the universe—absolutely requires such treatment to do it justice. The system, while clearly designed to handle combat well, also looks to be quite supportive of a focus on roleplaying and the development of complex characters. There are tools for describing a character’s phsychological profile and tracking a character’s emotional state.

A discount on preorders is being offered through March 10th. And for more information, take a look at the Living Dice blog for a preliminary review and interview with the publisher.
