I truly want to love this system, but the sheer number of errors in the document are infuriating. Especially for a game that is 3 years old. I get that your proofreader may be a hippopatmus with rose colored glasses, but sentences like "Nefarious forces try to steal the item leading to a chase them across the." happen too many times. Explanations of rules, end in

There, see how freaking annoying that is? And the grammatical errors outnumber the incomplete thoughts! (check the example above...it suffers from both).

FIX THE ERRORS!!!!

That said, once you make it through the rules, the system has a lot of entertainment value. I was looking for something to run with a wacky zany twist with a little less "adult content" than Big MutherF'ing Crab Truckers. While my players love the game, and it can be fun....sometimes I want funny not filthy funny. This looks like it may fit the bill. The rules allow for development of a personalized cartoon character, and a good mechanic for keeping things flowing with a slant toward success, but possible failures. This included a method to "force" a failure and still reward the player. I love that.

I am running a game, set in 1348 London. When I saw that this release included Devil Dogs, it piqued my interest, as I have included a couple based on legends I knew. Low-and-behold...the very references are included, and the concept around them is excellent, and presented well. I have now read the entire 37 page fount of knowledge, and I must say, if you want an example of how to present materials for a Storyteller...this is it. Straight forward descriptions to get your wheels turning. I rounded out my C'n Annwn model, and I see an Isle of Wight side venture coming very soon in my players future.
