Eoris Essence (Part 1) – System Mastery 155


A lavish box set full of tomes of full color wonder!  A comprehensive vision of an exciting and vast universe!  But System Mastery!  Could it be… completely impossible to read?  We dive into the madness of Eoris Essence, in a weird way that we’ll just have to explain in the show.

  1. The setting book for Eoris is one of my favorite rpg things ever. Thinking about the scale on which everything it proposes exists is brain-shattering.

  2. Okay, so the way you determine what species go with which character type is a little weird. On pages 38-40 of the rule book, when it’s talking about the character types, each one has a shape at the start of its section. (Upward pointing triangle, downward pointing triangle, and circle) On the species pages, under the name and Senses guide, the corresponding shapes are shown to let you know who is associated with what.

  3. I am enjoying the format of one person who knows the rules and one person asking questions about them. I think the conversation aspect gives some life to the show.

  4. I don’t think the game was translated from Spanish, but the author’s Colombian, so it’s likely that Spanish is his first language; it definitely reads to me like something that was written in English by a fluent but non-native speaker.

    Also, thanks for covering this piece of spectacular weirdness; I’ve had this game for a long time, and I was quite pleased to see it brought up here.

  5. The author is from Colombia, and his English is certainly far better than my Español will ever be. This accounts for eccentricities like using singular personal pronouns for nations and ethnias, and the table of contents being in the back, as is the custom in South America.

    It is a flawed work, but one dear to my heart. I’d love to see a second edition with a more gamability-focused edit on the setting and rules-light mechanics that can better handle the gonzo powers.
