    Overall the product was well done.

    The character's backgrounds are written well and don't seem to be the usual obviously inspired by comic books type that a person tends to see, and the ideas behind the characters are fresh and very well thought out.

    The art was amazing and well done (a point I think some companies don't take as serious as they could).

    There could have been a couple more villains introduced for my tastes, though Tailgator is rather enjoyable in my opinion.

    The single adventure did give excellent ideas for Voyager's way of handling Tailgator's surprise attack but I felt that there could have been a bit more ideas given for Tailgator's options in the fight for the GM to use instead of the standard brawl til the hero wins idea that was used (creative uses of Surging or Power Stunts spring to my mind).

    Other ideas could have been for Tailgator to make use of a possible hostage situation or to place the bystanders in jeapordy of some kind that would distract Voyager for a round or two.

    But all in all I found the product to be good quality and useful for games that I currently run.

    This look at what The WatchGuard Sourcebook will be definitely got me interested in what they're going for. The PDF contains quick descriptions of the setting, fleshes out two characters (one hero, one villain) and provides a sample encounter which, in my opinion, really defines the characters in their roles.

    The layout and art are great, proving that you're going to get a quality product when this is complete, but the writing leaves a tiny bit to be desired. For example, a lot of text points to things that I am sure will be explained in the final product but feel too rushed or vague to be included here. Rather than take a snippet of text from the finished book this preview would be more enjoyable as a concise summary, almost like a quick-start, than a "teaser". However, this is a very small problem and is not a problem throughout the whole text. Where the writing does shine is in the look at the villain. I think they did an excellent job of focusing on this character to really flesh him out, making it easy to get into his mindset right away and giving you enough information to drop him into any game.

    My score for The WatchGuard Sourcebook (Preview Edition) is 4/5 due to some flaws in the writing. However, those flaws are not enough to turn me away. If you like original supers settings I would suggest putting this one on your radar. It's on mine.
