    Wondering how people feel about this world/mechanics of this game. Show interest and I'll post specs and character creation stuff. Just started a game running this system, and it works really well. Fast and hardhitting while making the story feel important. Just the way I like my RPG's

    It's really easy to learn, quick to make characters in, and sometimes hilariously ridiculous. Not ideal for serious role-playing, but still quite fun.

    I think the setting is interesting because of it's blend of fantasy and sci-fi elements, and also because of how ridiculously far in the future it is. Generally though, I prefer it when the GM invents his/her own setting for a campaign rather than using a pre-generated one. The exception to the last part is the Warhammer 40k RPGs, which are all great.
