A little bit Harry Potter, a little bit Ender's Game, and a whole lot of Bad News Bears. I really dig the set up and the rules. You play a bunch of psychics in the future where mankind has contacted alien life that exists in, or interacts with, more than the understood four dimensions of the universe. Your characters are not the best and the brightest, they are not the chosen of prophesy, they aren't even the most driven to succeed. No your characters are the psychics they would have never brought on board if they had enough psychics to be picky. They don't and you are the last worst choice for peace. Their are other student groups who are far better than you, and they know it. Mechanics-wise the skill number has been reduced to nine skills plus three psychic skills. I really like this setup and as I read it I got to thinking that I would probably use nine skills for a hack at sometime in the future. The psychic skills are interesting and fun, and the alien races and The Realm(weird multidimensional psychic space) are spiffy. Check the game out, I don't think you will be disappointed.
