A great setting just got better-- a must for True20 fans, this book contains loads of new backgrounds, role tweaks etc. This is a "smart" use of the True20 mechanics. Imperial Age doesn't present 20 useless "new roles," but gives suggestions thematically for enhancing the existing ones. If you have the previous d20 version of Imperial Age, you'll notice that the formatting and editing is much improved. Lots of material for the GM. But material from Faerie, Victorian Monstrosities and India, the strongest pieces from the d20 edition, are virtually absent here. The price is worth mentioning too, a relative bargain at $9.95. Everything from Sherlock Holmes to Full Metal Alchemist and Girl Genius, you can approximate it with this book. RDP's Shadows of Cthulhu could easily be paired with Imperial Age. ...awaiting the next installment.
