(Rating Note: 4 on the map, though... Hey, it looks nice! But it is very small.)
Now with the main rulebook, I was almost apologetic about pointing out flaws and expressing my displeasure. Not with this piece of shit. Gawdamn! Whomever came up with this 'gem' needs to be punished.
The landscape format GM's screen is lame. Landscape sucks... don't they know that? No one likes landscape... it's usually done poorly and this is no exception. Gah. And the charts are wonky... like the critical hits chart... it's lists them and what-have-you, but it doesn't show the table you need to roll on to tell you what kind of critical hit it's gonna be. Here is my well thought out message to the designers concerning this:
YOU MISSED THAT? FUCK.
The book inside gives some mini adventure ideas and other useless garbage (well, some of it is useful... I always wondered what reprints of 1st ed. inn floor plans would look like...*sigh*).
And there's 4 pre-generated characters. Hoody-fucking-Hoo. :-|
I dare say this is as bad as the D&D 3.5 GM's screen. Maybe worse.
There IS a nice map of the Old World included. It had art on the back of it.
Some information and pertinent data of the land or something instead would have been nice. Bastards.
I can't believe I spent my money on this.
It would've have been better spent on the Alone in the Dark DVD or going to see I.
Look, bottom line: It's not totally worthless, but it could have been done much, much, much better by rabid drunken gerbils... s'all I'm sayin'.
