man i wished i could get a hard copy of this book...
Will there be a printed book as well?
I like these download sites, but I really wish when we bought the physical copy we could get one free download of the book. I prefer to have a physical copy, but also having electronic access can make searching for info in the middle of a game easier.
Still, thanks FFG for providing this service.
The system is actually very clever and uses some quite abstract rules to very good effect to promote thematic rather than tactical resolution of encounters and the like.
As the game isn't mainstream though I think it suffers from not having a obvious target audience, but I cannot speak highly enough of it; if from a system you rate role playing promoted head and shoulders above roll- playing, then it really is worth a punt
This RPG system looks intersting. I wonder who is its target audience...
