I just got the book and I tought that it could be fun to do a little impressions blog, talk about what happens in the scenario, how the plot mechanics interact and about how it works as a story. There will be spoilers here so be warned.
I just got the book yesterday and only hade the oportunity to read it on the train home, but for the first time playing 3rd ed I feel like I am holding a book. It's big and heavy and would have been very, very impressive in hardcover. The art is solid and Daarkens coverers are just getting better and better. I ate through the first 20 odd pages and the introduction and the way the main characters are preseted are good and well fleshedout, it seems that you can easily tag it on to the end of the Stromdorf story line (one that I was not a fan of).
There is a great map of the empire in the back of the book, it's en par with the one that we got in the original campaign and that leads me to my first gripe, the maps…. FFG really needs to print larger maps and especially when talking about a beautiful piece like this. I get that they want to limite the amount of space that the maps take up on the table, but still.
Oh! And of course Graeham Davis is involved, he was the prinve drive behind Shadows, Power etc, it's looking good.
