Eternity is very fun and refined. I’ve had the opportunity to play this quite a bit. Here are a few points Eternity excels at:
Cooperative play is a strong suit. With a wide array of class options, the class abilities and role playing aspects can be meshed to create incredible and sometimes hilarious combinations. Developing roles can be useful in a party, but you’re not limited by your role. Every class is useful in any situation if you’re creative enough.
The model for character building is very well balanced. As a player, I never felt my character build was more or less useful than other players in my party.
The level progression path is rewarding. Level ups feel significant and customizing your character stats and abilities makes you feel powerful.
If you’re developing a campaign or a need ideas for a character, there’s a lot of quality lore to pull from.
