From the back cover:
"This box contains everything needed to begin the quest of Prophecy:
72 page Player Manual, 72 page Game Master Manual, 224 page Continent: Superius Reference Manual, 11"x17" Game Master Screen, "The Mourning Mound" Introductory Adventure, four 22"x28" full color maps of the continent of Superius and a pair of percentile dice to get you into the game.
- An entirely unique world of tremendous depth; there are no orcs or horses here.
- Fluid archetypes replace static character classes; begin as a warrior, evolve into a thief or mage!
- Skill-based development as opposed to level-based; master only the skills you practice!
- Percentile game mechanics easily adapt to other systems; use Prophecy as a sourcebook."
