Eschalon: Book I is a classic role-playing game experience that will take you across massive outdoor environments and deep into sprawling dungeons as you seek to uncover the mystery of who â€“ or what â€“ you are.
â€¢ A tile-built, turn-based game world where the result of absolutely every action is rolled, calculated or statistically determined. Strategy is paramount to success; careful skill management, equipment selection and magic usage will win your fights, not rapid button clicking. We are very pleased to say this is not another â€œaction RPGâ€.
â€¢ Hundreds of items and dozens of creatures await your discovery. A combination of randomly generated treasure and carefully hidden goodies means that no two games will play the exact same way.
â€¢ Unlimited character development style: Choose from 24 unique skills to make the character you want and 8 base attributes that affect your characterâ€™s every action throughout the game. The game world does not scale or adjust itself to match anyoneâ€™s play style, so the ease or difficulty of the game is directly related to how successful you are at developing your character.
â€¢ Combat plays out at your pace. Eschalon: Book I features a turn-based system that allows you to roll through combat as fast or slow you want...make it fast and furious, or analyze every option for maximum advantage.
â€¢ A non-linear storyline means that the game world is open to explore as you desire. Follow the storyline or donâ€™t...itâ€™s up to you. Just be careful where you go and who you choose to trust- the world of Eschalon can be a deadly place for an inexperienced adventurer.
â€¢ An epic adventure that you must face alone... a single-player RPG carefully designed to feel like the great old school RPGs of the past such as UltimaÂ®, Might & MagicÂ®, and WizardryÂ®.
