From the introduction:
Spawned from the essence of the Ancient Ones, you find yourself, an Immortal, blessed with the powers of the gods and born with the mandate to take part in the monitoring and control of all things. Your existence demands you to influence reality and perpetuate your own supremacy.
In order to do your duty, you have been given the power of the Life Force, the basis of life itself, the power behind the elements.
These elements - Dawn, Ice, Island, and Breath - combine in your being, all of which you use to control the very nature of the universe.
