-Nice layout, good artwork, easy-to-read typeface.
-PDF comes with extra goodies, like a map and wallpaper pics.
-The PDF is searchable and hyper-linked for ease of use.
-New races, classes, feats, equipment, monsters and PRC's for use with Pathfinder.
-The free preview was actually more than just the table of contents, for a change.
I could whine about a few minor layout issues and the odd typo, but there really aren't any deal-breakers in this book.
I am usually not a big fan of companies that rely on glossy artwork and fan fiction to sell their products. I am also not a big fan of settings that throw around phrases like "post-apocalypse" and "Science-Fantasy crossover setting". I was pleasantly surprised by DEM Games and the Amethyst setting. It is obvious that a lot of thought and care went into the preparation of this product.
Most amazing of all, the product left me wanting to know more about the world and its inhabitants. I've been playing RPG's for decades, and I must say it has been a while since that has happened. I give this book an enthusiastic thumbs up.
