All for One: Régime Diabolique
Publisher: Triple Ace Games

WHAT WORKS: I dig the magick system, as I already have a fondness for that type of "construct your spell" system, and a very good amount of game information is provided. I had no prior experience with Ubiquity, but it feels familiar enough to systems I have had experience with that it doesn't seem like it would be hard to pick up at all. As with Hellfrost, Triple Ace Games has a TON of support for the setting in the form of adventures and microsupplements. The concept is just cool...I like fighting monsters in more than just a "kill 'em all and take their stuff" capacity, and the whole "Everyone's a Musketeer" thing helps you bypass that "why are your characters on the same side, again?" thing that comes up in some games.

WHAT DOESN'T WORK: Given the setting, as I'm not even a remedial student of French history, a closer look at the setting would have been great. I mean, there's enough there to run with, but it's kinda spread around from the beginning of the book to the end. Also, you can never go wrong with including an adventure generator...just saying.

CONCLUSION: I'm way more enthusiastic about Savage Worlds stuff, so if I had to pick a Triple Ace franchise and run with it, it would certainly be Hellfrost. That said, Ubiquity seems like a really easy system to pick up, which is always a plus. I actually like the Magick system better than I do Savage Worlds powers. It wouldn't take much encouragement to get me digging into the microsupplements, especially stuff like Guide to Expanded Terrors and Creatures of Sin. If you don't mind learning a new system and the idea of Three Musketeers vs Demons, Vampires and Witches appeals to you, then I heartily give this a strong recommendation.

All for One: Regime Diabolique is one of those rare games that comes along where the setting, the system, and the vision of the developer all work together to create an exceptional product.

Things to like: +Very evocative presentation of the concept and setting +Superlative system (Ubiquity) leading to fast, carefree game play +High rate of support in the form of both expansions and scenarios at reasonable prices +Very clean magic system +Well-developed emphasis on schools of fence +Great art +the pdf toggles between web and printer friendly

Things of which to be wary: (Not much) -May require some work getting those who know nothing about the works of Dumas or Howard into the intent and atmosphere of the setting -The freedom and flexibility of Ubiquity may give those used to more rigid systems a steeper learning curve. -limited examples of spell-design are clear and useful, but less-so for absolute novices -no example of play (although excellent advice and responsiveness can be found on the Triple Ace forum)

This is a game to love!
