Provides a bevy of new character options for the game, including a luck statistic, new core character classes, a race customization system, more detailed treatment of skills, and a variety of new feats and spells.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: The Eldritch Weaver makes for a great variant spellcasting class with some spell like abilities; does a much better take on the "Warlock" concept without kicking the existing spell system to the curb.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Skip repeats his quirky mass combat system from "Cry Havoc" here. Why a mass combat book is in a "Player's" manual is one head scratcher, but more importantly, it's just not a great system. Very table-reliant and it has some odd rules for unit sizes.
I am generally not a fan of new core classes but I was particularly not jazzed to see a MORE combat oriented cleric variant.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
