I had the privilege to back this title on Kickstarter. It's a very fun system which ties in nicely to its setting. You play what amounts to a paladin in a post-apocalyptic world. The society looks and feels very Arabic, and there's a fantastic effort made to include people of all colors in the artwork. The setting is a ringworld in the far future, so far that people have regressed to a medieval level of technology, with scattered high-tech items and monsters providing story flavor.

The game rules remind me of a mix of the Storyteller engine and Fate. Even though the characters are pretty much all playing members of the same organization, they get a wide latitude to customize their motivations and abilities. A character gains much of their power through acting in line with their convictions, and with some flexibility of interpretation, PCs can find themselves working together or at odds.

The setting and system are very closely intertwined, but there are rules in an appendix for playing generic characters, and with very little effort this game could be ported to emulate something like the Knights Templar in the Crusades.
