Not being a mecha fan, I was reluctant to purchase this product. However, the high degree of quality that I've seen in other PIG products ultimately overcame my reticence and I took the plunge.

I'm glad that I did.

While it is unlikely that I'll ever use the various fantasy mecha (Rune Stryders) in one of my campaigns, there are a lot of gems in this product that make it worth buying. The world setting is nifty, the system resolution engine works surprisingly well, and I loved the innovative magic system.

Hopefully, we'll see some tweaks and add-ons--keep an eye on www.digitalrpg.org .

LIKED: Far and away, my favorite part of this game is the rune magic system. Flexible and workable, it alone may convince me to run this game (or at least adapt the magic system for my games).

DISLIKED: Like I said, I'm just not a mecha fan.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

A well-realized world with a lot of opportunities for a variety of adventures, from political intrigue to epic battles.

One of the best things is that the rune stryders do not overshadow the game as one would expect; while powerful, they really require the cooperation of the whole team, so GMs aren't forced to split up parties or have a bunch of bored players while the "pilot" does his thing.

The only real drawback is that the file is locked, and there is a few major errata that comes seperate. I would have preferred an unlocked file and change-pages.

But overall a good product and worth the money.

This was okay, but only barely. I kept wanting more "good stuff" and instead would get something odd. The whole thing cried out to be a sourcebook for some other game system rather than having a system of its own - there was too many rules and then only tiny bits of background.

It has a good premise but the setting needs more detail in my opinion.

Thanks for the feedback, but most of the book IS setting info. I don't know how much more detail we could have added.

Very interesting plot, almost nice mechanic (a bit crunchy sometimes).
It's a two colums book that can easily read.
But sadly the interior images are bad (well IMHO).
