For what this Prowlers & Paragons Ultimate "Waiting Room" Edition is, it is phenomenal. The game system is awesome, plays fast, fosters players activity and engagement, has narrative and discrete options, gives players options to be creative in proposing actions and in character development, has specific rules to reward creativity and can be adapted to various degrees of "crunch" for different preferences in play. The manuscript is fully developed and usable, so it gets 5-stars from me; do be aware and have appropriate expectations, it is not a "polished" book, layout and art is sorely missed, but the product is clearly marked as pre-final-release as a "waiting room" edition. Fully playable and easy to use, the book is missing minor polish in presentation and organization, for example, the 3 calculated stats of Edge, Health and Resolve don't have a name for their grouping, they aren't "calculated abilities" or "secondary stats" or anything, so the section that describes them is just called "final calculations." Until I recognized that, I had trouble locating where those stats are calculated using search, and had to go back to the character creation section to manually locate them when building on characters. Other minor challenges with this manuscript include areas where the rules language could be more concise and clear, sections that could be named better to make recognizing them easier, the system could use a play sheet to summarize how to play for players and so on, but all those challenges are very minor in comparison to the solid game play, creative game system, ease of play, and flexibility in describing characters. Very much worth the 5-star rating I just gave it, just be aware that this isn't a final off-the-shelf product, it wasn't meant to be, so for a pre-release edition of a game system, it's a 5-star product, if you start into it with appropriate expectations, hopefully the author and publisher continue to make editorial and proofing passes on this manuscript.
At a Pay What You Want price this is an great deal, so if you like super-hero rpg systems, pick up Prowlers & Paragons Ultimate Edition "Waiting Room Edition" because its fast, fun, easy to learn, dynamic, creative -- I and my group found it a lot of fun to play and its the new system for our long-term supers campaign!
