Nice review, man.

"In an era of mules in d20 harness, this is a mustang." Real nice.

I'm glad to see scripting finally getting the praise it deserves :-)

What did you think of the review Luke?

I only thought it was a pity he didn't refer customers to RPGshop.com (makes it all seem a bit more "authentic" to be able to buy it from a retailer) but I guess its more cash for you if people order it direct.

-----------------------
Edit:

One thing I forgot to mention originally - I was really surprised there was no mention of how Shades contribute to character building and advancement. Its the first time I've really seen a way whereby you can create a starting party with tough experienced Aragorns and naive (but very quick to learn) Hobbit types in the same group. Really struck me as genius.

I especially liked this part

Maybe after that, I'll get to Kill Puppies For Satan and My Life With Master, to prevent Luke Crane from lording it over his fellow elves at the Forge for too long.


heh

course, then he went on to conclude

Or maybe I'll just post the rules for Gettysburg: 1963, once we work out whether the Confederate helicopters should have rocket launchers on them. I feel the need for more Blue Hawaiians
so its hard to say which impulse will win out.

Hi Tony,

I was extremely surprised and would have never even seen the review if someone didn't point it out to me. Ken said some nice things and some true things. I was mostly glad he ended the review on an upbeat note. For some reason  reviewers seem to like to end our reviews on a downbeat.

thanks for your support!
