Az Essence and Energy egy remek társasjáték, 2 - 6 játékos részére. A társast, 16 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. Kooperatív jellegű, a játékmenet erősen épít az akció pontok, a történetmesélés, a szerepjátszás, a kockadobás és a színészkedés mechanizmusokra.

Explore Nisumari, a continent that floats in Unkai (sea of clouds) as an adventurer seeking out the thrill of danger, the quest for fame, and the wealth of treasure. The setting appears as a medieval landscape covered over with steampunk and energetic technology. Through the study of energetics, the people of Nisumari have been able to advance their civilizations in the fields of magic and technology. The thirteen different energies that flow through the atmosphere can be harnessed to create the technological and magical aspects that are present throughout the world. From compressed steam canisters that power steam devices and weapons; to high tech electricity that brightens the dark streets of the major cities that are scattered across the land; to magical effects expelling out of a wizard’s wand; energy is used nearly everywhere in some form or another.
As a player, you create and tell the story of an adventurer living in Nisumari. Creating your adventurer is open and the only limitations are your imagination and the physics of the game world (i.e. rules set in the gamebook). Pick from nine different species that are broken up into a combination of over twenty-eight different races. Select which culture within the world your adventurer was raised and learned their skills and trades from. Be a Vras orc raised in the land of the Ellarian forest elves or a half Vashi elf, half Myri gnome who grew up with the orcs of the Raf’Shat plains. The countless number of combinations that can be created with races and cultures is all up to you.
As you play through the game you collect experience, levels, and coin in order to further develop your adventurer as you see fit. Select from the numerous masteries, character traits, and extensive and detailed marketplace to mold and shape your adventurer to become the best they can be.
Be warned, Nisumari might seem like all fun, thrills, and glory but the land is brutal and the creatures even more so. In Essence and Energy death is permanent and no amount of praying to the gods will resurrect your adventurer. That is unless you have angel wings.
Your adventure awaits.
