I purchased this as a resource, and because I liked the series so much. I have not yet read the entire book through, and am finding it difficult to do so for a 3 main reasons.

First, I find the odd, slanted, two-column layout to be hard to follow. I'm sure someone thought it added character, but it just does not flow naturally.

Second, the chapter titles are done in a wretched font that I have to work at to decipher. Again, I can acknowledge the attempt to add character to the text, but being unreadable does not serve that purpose well.

Third, the font used for the body text is also a little hard to read across the various backgrounds, etc. This may also be exacerbated by the scanning used to create the PDF. (The fact that this is a scan was not mentioned in the description, but I noted it in the review after-the-fact)

A great buy due to the GM Day (horray for us, guys!), this is a nice d20 (DnD 3.0 players handbook required, mind you) take on the well-loved if short-lived series. The only problem I see with it is that it's a scan of the actual book, so that means it is a bit on the heavy side (95 or so Mb), and that the text is not that clear. There's also the issue about the layout using an unconventional two colum format that gets a bit hard to get used to, or for some other it might get a wee bit hard to read after a while.

All in all, the spirit of the series is captured and there's no need to buy anything to flesh out your campaign as all the relevant information is in there, presented in concise, organized and useful manner.

It would definitely be a five-star product if only the quality of the file could be improved, but if you had any interest in the series or like Space-Opera settings, this is a really good buy and almost as steal at the sales price.

LIKED: The quality of the informations.

DISLIKED: The overall quality of the scans. To a lesser degree, the unconventional page layout.

OVERALL: Satisfied with the product.
