(first sorry for my basic English skills as I am a french speaker)
I am a little perplexed about this new version of game. Not really judging before reading reviews or having this game in hands.
I have one or 2 basic questions and remarks. Probably will add some later.
1 - About skills and character sheet: Where are the all important social and academic skills on the character sheet? Could not really find a lot of things realting to that... (Its a real concern for me)
2- will the new system adapt also to social/intrigue situation?
3 - Is there also a system with insanity points? How will this work?
4- I would like to see soon a complete lists of skills and talents.
- Are the "planned" campaigns or scenarios be the great mixed we have seen before of politics, intrigue, social and fights?
- Will the universe will be still sort of adult? I really liked the feeling of a dark and grim cynical universe with humour you could find in version 1.
Or are we heading for a more adolescent, clean universe?
I am a little afraid from what I read and seen so far but will judge later when I see more material.
Also all those tokens and cards and puzzle pieces looks really more like "very" colourful gadgets (too colorful for me and the idea I have of this universe). Those dice are so flashy...
Are all those little gadgets (tokens, character cards etc....) obligatory to play the game?
I simply hope the game will not loose its so particular atmosphere.
