Being more interested in playing political RPG than investigation ones, I find the proposal of Republic very interesting. The take on the Gumshoe system could probably be more useful than the original one. IMO, it is on the verge of a full diceless system, which for me is a very good point.
Form may be lacking a little, even for a pwyw product :
- typos a second language English person like me can see,
- a handful of pictures from the public domain would have given a better mood to the game.
Still, a well deserved 5 star product, because of the cleverness poured in it.
