BARI, ITALY (February 22, 2006) P.M. STUDIOS announce the release of the Enemies' Book of the 3D Action-Rpg ETROM-The Astral Essence (

The Complete Enemies' Book is on !

About the Enemies' Book

There are a lot of enemies to be faced, both human and superhuman. Before he came across the Astral Essence, Etrom could never have believed there could be wicked and horrible creatures from the most ancient recesses of the Abyss here walking the Earth.

Only a few people are aware of how and when these creatures reached the world of human beings...almost no one knows the truth that is hidden in the Void Lands, beyond the borders of the 4 States.

If you want to survive you have to learn to know yourself and your enemies. Don't buck anybody at any time. If you are rash you can lose your life. Get stronger and increase your experience level before you start fighting outside Sighundia and the 4 states.

Always try to understand your enemies' weaknesses - what kind of attack they use most and can tolerate less (the secret files will be very useful in this case ).
