Can someone give us some glimpses about this obscure rpg?

Is it worth playing? What are its mechanics and rules?

Someone has it?

thanks

I have 4 of the 5 books iirc, don't think I've read much of them though.  Did think it was interesting, so am curious about it from those who maybe have played it as well.

I bought all books but never played... I am curious to know if someone ever ran a game one day.

I actually ran this quite a bit when I was in high school. Although I recently bought a new copy of the main book, I haven't had time to delve back into it yet.

The things that I remember liking about it were the nice variety of classes as well as a huge amount of magic/spells that weren't just a direct swipe from D&D. One other thing that I really liked was the combat system, most of the mechanics of which I can't recall right this second but which included concepts like heavily armored characters being hit more often but taking less damage and vice versa.

There was a fairly well detailed setting, although I clearly remember my favorite thing being that one of the countries on the developed continent was left completely blank for the GM to create whatever they wanted.

I'll take a look through it in the next couple of days and see if there is anything else specific that I can give to you.

thanks Ector, we are looking forward to hearing from you.

Particularly because it is currently being sold on ebay, so we must understand if it is worth buying as well.
