Essence Companion at DriveThruRPG
Cover/Jacket Text:
You have joined the cabal of wizards and now your power grows. Soon, when the ritual has finished, all will know the wrath of the Ivory Fang!
From forgotten tomes of magic to the schools of wizards, now comes forth a deeper exploration of the realm of Essence!
The Essence Companion delves deeply into the magical realm of Essence magic. Inside, you will find new professions, variant rules, new options, and a wealth of spells.
Here is what you will find inside…
• Three new professions that use the realm of Essence: the Warrior Mage, the Mana Molder, and the Runemage.
• More than a dozen new training packages for characters to develop. Many of the packages focus on some very specific aspects of the realm of Essence.
• New definitions within the realm of Essence that allow further customization of your Essence spell user. Now you may be a Somantist, a Nomenist, an Herbalist, a Corpist, or a Crystalist.
• Optional rule systems for learning skills and spell list specialization. This includes a discussion about structures for learning.
• More than 30 new spell lists for the realm of Essence (including Open, Closed, Training Package, and Base lists).
• Detailed tables showing magical properties found in herbs and animal parts (just how much magic is there in an “eye of newt?”).
Get Real,
Get Rolemaster!
The latest in the evolution of role playing. Now provided in a convenient 3-hole punch format, the Rolemaster Standard System contains four parts:
• Rolemaster Standard Rules: These are all the rules needed to play Rolemaster. With 20 professions and dozens of new training packages, this system is all you will ever need.
• Arms Law: The complete Rolemaster melee and missile combat system!
• Spell Law: The complete Rolemaster magic system (over 2,000 spells).
• Gamemaster Law: The definitive guide for GMs of all systems!
In addition, you can test the waters. For those new to Rolemaster.
• Rolemaster: The Basics: This boxed set
provides the elements that you need to
learn to play using a selection of Rolemaster’s wide range of choices.
• Rolemaster: Player Guide: An excellent way to introduce players to the Rolemaster system.

Due to contractual problems between the authors of the Essence Companion and the original ICE, a large part of the print run for this supplement was destroyed and as a result it is very difficult to find a copy of this particular supplement. The good news is that the Guild Companion made arrangements with the new ICE and the authors and this supplement is now available as a pdf file from the Guild Companion.
