While Shield of Faith has thus far failed to help flesh out their Tales RPG with additional suppliments and books (which is why I took off a star), the base book and system are definetly one of my favorites of all time. Unlike other clunky & hard to use RPG systems that focus almost solely on the "what" of charectors instead of the "who", Tales system of taking background choices and having that influence what you can learn and such works very nicely to help flesh out "who" a charector is. The charector creation can be a little confusing and hard to get used to, but the complexity supports a very complex charector that is made specific to each player. If SoFS could get off their behinds and update the Tales system, and add to it, they could very easily have the best RPG on the market, for the cheapest price too.
