  1. Yes, yes and yes. This game pushes all my buttons, in the right ways. There’s a lot of talk about the mechanics (understandably) but I love the setting stuff to death. I swoon at the freedom and creativity the authors have allowed themselves. Frankly, they’d never have gotten away with releasing this under WotCs banner.

    • I definitely like the idea of just saying ‘here’s a bunch of cool stuff, now make your game awesome.’ It seems like a really good way to make a satisfying game. I definitely like the way this is looking.
