From the back cover:
"Lejendary Adventure is a game apart; Where wizards can wield swords and fighters learn spells. With a rules-light approach this skill-based game allows you to create virtually any sort of epic character desired.
Lejendary Adventure moves beyond the class system of typical RPGs: Character creation is easy and centered around skill bundles chosen at the start of play and earned while on the road to adventure. These abilities allow you to customize your character, all the while plundering the wealth of lost dungeons, or wandering far afield on the road of glory and adventure.
With your imagination you can create a limitless world filled with powerful knights, wizards, and creatures of legend.
Essentials is designed as an expanded introduction to the Lejendary Adventure role playing game. It includes Essentials: The Lejendary Adventure rule book, the Essential Bestiary with over 75 monsters, Moon Slaves, an introductory adventure and Six Playing Dice. Everything you need to launch a lifetime's night of fun."
