Does anyone have info/copies/details about the Thoan?  Some recent comments on Grognardia really caught my eye, since I'm a big fan of Farmer's 'World of Tiers' stories, and would love to learn more about an RPG developed around the series.

Some additional info:

Anyone have info/thoughts/play experience that they'd like to share? :D

Yes, what do you need to know?

It exists the standard edition rulebook and a collector rulebook.
One screen.
One supplement called Arwoor
And an small press production called La Chute d'Arwoor (nearly impossible to find).

There is a Jeux Descartes Supplement, special Thoan too.

I'd love to buy copies of the books, if only to check them out sometime (and perhaps force me to learn French someday too!):  it looks like I can buy directly from the publisher.  What's best to buy first, and please tell me more of these special editions you've mentioned, Géraud :D

The "collector" edition is a very nice book. Similar as the standard one in content, but with a greater cover.
First thing to buy is of course the rulebook... Then, the other items are very easy to find, at cheap prices. It exists a free pdf version of La Chute d'Arwoor.

Let me know if you want them and are not hurry, I will try to find them at the best price in France ;)
As for the screen, I have one extra SW copy that I can give you for free.


Here some pictures for differences between standard and collector editions:
