Realism and Speed of Combat: Since 5EE is a game of action and adventure, special attention is paid to combat. Weapons are organized and presented so that their use and effects become intuitive. The armor system is quite detailed, but presented to the player in an easy to read format that allows armor selection in a few short minutes. The rules are crafted to provide a realistic feel to the combat, which increases the player s excitement and enjoyment of the game. The combat rules have been extensively playtested to ensure clarity and ease of play.
Unique Skill Advancement for Characters: 5EE does not force players to choose a character class, so players may craft their characters in accordance with their imagination and the mood their Game Master is trying to set. Since the system is skill-based, those skills which are used during game play will develop. This separates actions during combat from overall skill development and character advancement. Since experience points derived from combating opponents are not required the game is free to go in any direction the players and GM choose.
Gender Balance for Players: Each gender presents certain advantages, so women will enjoy playing 5EE in equal proportion to men. Certain magic types presented in the game are crafted to take into account a woman's intuitive nature and this is a distinct advantage in a number of situations.
