This is a great book detailing the RPG universe of Fading Suns. I have read elsewhere that the Victory Point system was not too balanced, hence I went for the d20 system. I must say it is quite impressive but perhaps on the short side (especially descriptions of the worlds and perhaps more alien race options)... it left me craving for more though. Your next purchase following this book would logically be the other d20 books by Holistic (eg the d20 Character Codex and the Wolrds of the Realm)... I hope the rest of the d20 books will be released electronically. One other thing, I have yet to find a conversion system between Victory Point system and d20.
