First I just want to say the PoD version is well made. I was quite pleased with the quality of this PoD. While not as nice as the original printing and the margins around the edges make the book a bit larger when sitting on a shelf next to the old books, it is a welcomed blessing seeing as finding an original printing of this book is quite expensive new or used. My concern was since it wasn't made from the original electronic file, that it was a "scanned image" it would look subpar. I am happy to report it is very clear, the artwork pops, the blacks are hard black, and the greys in scale. They did some good work touching up a scan look like original copy.

As for the book itself.... It suffers from revised (3rd) edition-itis. Meaning it suffers from the rebooty-ness of the Revised edition metaplot. Which is a shame as this is the only proper city book made for mage. That said, it's still pretty decent although a bit tame and I would have preferred a Las Vegas on the verge of all-out ascension war. I'm still reading it though so maybe the story hooks give more options to have the technocrats and tradition mages go at it and have neon lit battles on top of casino signs (ooooo like the cover).

This is the first city book for Mage, and set in the Revised time frame.

The book has chantries and the statistics of NPCs there. Vegas has a lot more mages by the numbers but most are left for the ST to define-though there's some of every major faction listed.

There's background on the various casinos in Vegas, general happenings and history, and other material so you can start a chronicle-pretty standard White Wolf fare. There's also rotes and a sample adventure which are neither exceptionally good nor bad.

The main issue is that this book presumes the Ascension War is over and conflict is minimal. The Technocracy and Traditions are a bit too cozy and you would think that in a city where great fortunes are won and lost every night there might be more power plays between mages.
