Me ha parecido un libro genial. Te explican todo muy bien y muy detallado, con ejemplos y extractos de historias ya conocidas. Para aquel que esté empezando en el mundo de los juegos de rol está genial, yo he disfrutado mucho de su lectura y he aprendido mucho sobre el entorno en el que estoy jugando y sobre mi personaje. Sin duda, lo tendré a mano durante las partidas, es imposible quedarse con todo a la primera. La edición es sensacional.

Great idea for a RPG. Strongest feature is definately the chance to see a whole family of characters in action as time flows and Britain changes. This first read-through suggests that the game is a bit too structured and rigid for it's own good, but it seems a great alternative to modern-day RPG's.

“[Since] a player controls every character, it is that player's intelligence that dictates the character's goals and actions, not an arbitrary number on a character sheet. Thus, in a sense, the player _is_ the character's "intelligence score"!” 1 likes
