    Absolutely amazing work. I have never played a TTRPG before, but I am a diehard fan of the Lyonesse Trilogy and this product has inspired me to give it a try. This system does an incredible job capturing the sense of wonder, grit, and whimsy of Vance's world. The product itself is of excellent quality. Highly recommended.

    A high watermark for a hardcover RPG book, Lyonesse is filled with beautiful illustrations and wonderfully rendered maps, all neatly organized in a sharp and elegant layout. The prose is delightful and immersive and the rules (as you'd expect from the Mythras lads) are utterly water-tight and clearly exhaustively playtested. The black and white illustrations are excellent, and the full colour maps are some of the best I have seen in any recent publications. The world of Lyonesse is so evocatively described, that I have been compelled to read Jack Vance's books for the first time. An absolute treasure of a book. Well done to all involved.

    However, this was my first experience ordering anything from a POD service, and I must say I was a bit underwhelmed at times with the print quality of some of the pages. Some maps were slightly pixelated and some of the text looked slightly blurry. Not an absolute dealbreaker, as most of the pages seem fine, but something to consider.

    This book will take pride of place on my shelf. Pick it up!

    I'm still worming my way through it, but as a huge fan of the Lyonesse books (and Vance in general) and the BRP family of games, I can safely say that so far, this is the most impressed I've been with a product since I picked up Elric! The layout is superb, the prose is great, the magic systems seem inspired, and (this is the big one for me) I can't think of anything I would house-rule or change as I read it.

    There have only been a handful of other games that I had the same initial reaction to (Elric!, and Dungeon Crawl Classics perhaps?). It's everything that's great about Mythras, but tuned to perfection to capture what makes the Lyonesse books so special.

    I can't wait to start my next campaign here.
