I haven't used the BroadSword / 1PG system, so I can't actually comment on the rules section. I bought this, because I was looking for a Sword & Sorcery setting. Don't expect a setting where everything is described down to the last detail. The world is described in broad strokes, but very evocatively. Almost every sentence contains a plot hook. This fits nicely with my idea of S&S: The story is mainly driven by the characters and not necessarily a world-spanning plot of an evil mastermind as in Heroic Fantasy. The same with the map: Sometimes when I look at a map for a setting, I must admit, that it is done skilfully, but it doesn't actually appeal to me. Here, when I looked at the map, something clicked and I wanted to play in the setting.

If you like the cover, you'll like the rest of it :)

Pro:

  • evocative setting
  • great cover
  • evocative map

Con:

  • interior illustrations could be better
  • layout could be better (can't say why)
