An interested update to the old system.
This product manages to add some needed depth to the game without rendering anything overly complicated. It's close enough to the earlier systems that veterans of the game should have no trouble adapting to this one.
The mention of alternative rules suggested by the playtesters in the sidebars is a helpful touch, and the new talents system adds a bit more detail to the characters.
Rules are set out in a clear manner and provide the reader with plenty of examples.
My only significant complaint with it is that I feel there isn't enough on creating monsters/encounters outside of the standard monster ratings and save difficulties. Some suggested special rules might have been nice.
