There is a lot to get into, but rather than unpack it all here, let’s just jump to the end. Similar to GDW’s Dark Conspiracy, Traveler, and Twilight 2000, the character creation is based on a life path style process. One can take the steps to create a really unique character. That said, as with those systems, and systems like Call of Cthulhu and more, there are no real classes. There are just occupations that you take, then skills that you increase.
The end result is something fun to play, with some style choices that are familiar enough for us to grasp pretty easy. We suggest picking up a copy for yourself and giving it a go. On the bonus as well, there is only one book you need. So it will not break the bank to run the game.
