Review: This is da bomb!! This little book, along with the Savage Worlds Explorer`s Edition, is all you need to run virtually any fantasy role playing game! I`m not lying! If you read my review of the SW Explorer`s Edition then you know how easy it is to port over your favorite fantasy RPG to Savage Worlds and get MORE accomplished in a single gaming session that is not possible with most fantasy RPG gaming engines. Heck, right now in my gaming groups I`m using this gem to run Dungeons & Dragons TM 3.5 edition, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons TM 1st and 2nd editions, Earthdawn TM and Middle Earth Role Playing TM and let me tell you that we`re getting 2 to 3 times more accomplished in a single game session than using those games game engines. It makes that much difference!! Especially when your gaming group has other obligations in their life like jobs, families and life in general. This game lets you get the maximum enjoyment out of your fantasy RPG when time is a precious commodity. Look, it doesn`t take a rocket scientist to use this simple yet comprehensive rule engine to start enjoying your game more and looking up or getting bogged down in rules for half your gaming session. Now you can PLAY for your entire session. And that`s the whole idea behind gaming with friends isn`t it? One more thing, the beastiary doesn`t cover every single monster that appears in all RPG`s but the rules system for creating monsters on the fly for the GM is simple yet elegant and easy to use!! I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a game engine that can allow them and their group to get more FAST, FURIOUS FUN out of their favorite fantasy RPG! You won`t be disappointed!
