Pros:
includes a pretty good guide to how to run the world, with enough information that you wouldn't have to do any more looking into history to come up with settings if you didn't want to.

Plenty of reasonably inventive and amusing ideas, quite creative while still being very true to the setting at the time.

Some genuinely interesting ideas for games.

Interesting and fun sample characters.

Really fun example story, I've yet to play it but it looks great.

Excellent price for what it is.


Cons:
Some of the rules feel overly complicated (especially the way traps work).

Combat and leveling is both too complicated and too simplistic at the same time.

Rules are just mediocre in general, really.




Overall, I would definitely recomend purchasing this. While the rules are not particularly well done, they're still playable and there are a lot of nifty ideas that could be brought into other games. The example story alone is worth the price, it looks amusing enough to make up for the poor rules and you could very easily port it over to any fantasy/historical game if you couldn't handle the bad rule system.

Rating:
[4 of 5 Stars!]
Publisher Reply:
Many thanks for your kind comments. I take your point about some of the rules seeming to be a little overly complicated in places. I'm working on streamlining and tidying a few areas of the rules, which will appear in a revised edition of the game at a future date. This will hopefully make the game even more simple and quick to learn. When I release the revision, it will be available free to all those that have purchased this first edition. Thanks again, Graham Rose
