"...a gorgeous book, in a style that I don't see many RPGs using... the typography is great, too. It's a very, very readable book."
"The optional rules sidebars are just amazing... I genuinely can't recall when I last saw such a great spread of options."
"I just finished reading LoA and I LOVED IT. Greek myth was a perfect fit for the diceless system... I'm dropping all other games I'm currently running to run this for my small group."
