The Company

The system, based on OpenQuest, is well polished in this supplement although the 'professional' level characters may feel a little underpowered to some. It's not a particularly crunchy set of rules either, if people are expecting this sort of thing from a RuneQuest derived ruleset, with the skill lists being relatively short and no magical abilities or the equivalent.

The game premise is pretty tight too, with 'The Company' being a (largely UK-military-style) international mercenary outfit that feels suitably 'modern' in it's plausibility. The illustrations are all taken from stock photos, which largely captures the right feel. You could run a lot of modern military missions within the scope of this game.

As a small print game, therefore it's pretty successful, although it lacks a 'hook' (supernatural or otherwise) to attract a bigger RPG audience I'd argue. You could add in supernatural elements taken from any other number of compatible BRP games, but of course this would detract from the 'real world' aspect of the original premise.

The Company is a rather good game of modern combat, but (there's always a but), there are some 'niggles'. Under the attributes section, it just lists Strength, informing the reader of damage modifiers, but not throw range or lift capacity (encumbrance). It should have listed/described the other attributes, like DEX, etc. Also, are the weapon ranges in feet, yards or metres? (It doesn't say). What skill do I use for throwing a grenade, and how far can I throw it? Page 82 does state (after much reading), that the throw range is based on STR.

Other RPG's I've read in the past few decades, usually inform you (clearly), things like what range type it uses (yards, feet, etc), lift capacity (encumbrance), throw range, etc.

GOOD: very good data on the Company and other organisations, weapons, equipment. Some rather good pictures, etc. PRICE: A bit too pricey at £9.48, perhaps somewhere around £5-£8 would have been better.

Amazing game!! Five Stars all the way!! If you are looking for a game about modern war where you only control 1 player instead of an entire squad, then this IS the game!! The rules are simple and easy, but yet still have the depth to make the game flow smoothly while making it completely accurate. It also gives you a great background and idea of the company, who you are working for, and the world around it so that the Game's Master can easily and thoroughly create a campaign. However, there are a few places where you might have to re-read the section because the wording is confusing or spelled wrong. Overall though that won't matter because it's easy to figure out what they mean. All in all, THIS IS A MUST BUY!!!!!!!
