Empyrean lies in ruins. Covered by the devouring fog of Aether, it is only a matter of time before the world dies without the sustaining power of Grand Cornerstone. As an Eidolon--an immortal force of nature--your path is clear. Find the lost fragments of Grand Cornerstone and rebuild the world according to your own design.

Mystic Empyrean is a roleplaying game of social character development, creation, and puzzle solving. Players must work together to rebuild the world from a few tattered remains, and then explore their own creations in order to find more pieces of the world.

The player characters, Eidolons, are beings of immense power, granted a body of pure life energy and formed by the desires and designs of their hearts. Eidolons develop new powers based upon their personalities. To be consumed by greed will give an Eidolon the power to create gold with a touch. To be fearful and furtive will grant the power to dissolve into shadow. Traits develop based upon how characters are role-played, rather than the assignment of experience or gaining of levels. This means that Eidolons will gain powers that reflect their actions and desires. 

In Empyrean, the game builds itself as you play. No GM is responsible for creating encounters in advance of the game. Instead, players use the tools presented in the game guide, as well as their own imaginations, to create an adventure that is wholly unique for every group.

You can also download the free preview game to give it a try before buying.

Disclaimer - I am a playtester for Level 99 Games (though I did not originally playtest or in any way contribute to this project) I am going to try and keep this short and sweet. Mystic Empyrean is a steal at $15. A very original system for coll [...]

Mystic Empyrean is excellent. As someone who finds themselves being the GM all the time in their play-group, the fact this game is built from the ground up so that everyone is a GM and everyone is a PC is very refreshing and means I have to do a lot le [...]

Despite the fact that I've never really playtested this thing, after reading it -- I can say it's really not my thing. And yet, it's a good book. It does a lot of things well. It explains the core premise of the game, it exhaustively covers the [...]

I was a supporter of Mystic Empyrean since it was a Kickstarter project and my opinion of it has not changed. Its main draws for me were its unique gameplay elements, but having reviewed the flavor of the world more in detail, I greatly appreciate the [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
