Without question or doubt, this is the best RP suppliment ever written. It does what no other suppliment does: I inspires the imagination with a whole new realm to role play in. The idea of 1930s hobos secretly being magical defenders of the realm is innovative but the idea that players would want to have a hobo for a character is totally unique. What I see in reading this, is that the author knows role players and understands them well enough to craft a world that you wouldn't even think is worth playing it. I actually took the world ideas and played them using D20 modern, but there is nothing wrong with the system the game comes with. When I urchase a product, I am usually looking for idea, in this book, I found them and the game that followed was fun for everyone.

It's true that I'm a little biased when it comes to Hex Games products, since I know several staff members on a personal basis, and I've been running Hex Games events at conventions for several years now. Having said that, I picked up “Hobomancer” last week.

I know how much time and effort went into this product, and the meticulous nature of the background and research within the supplement shines bright. Hex Games has gone above and beyond in this project, and delivers a unique and interesting setting that is unlike anything else I've ever played. If you're like me, you have little understanding about hobos in general, but the rich detail of information about life on the rails in this supplement sets the player up perfectly to jump right into the world of Hobomancer. The Hex Games staff does a fantastic job of capturing “the spirit of the times” and blends it well with the fantastical magical world they've created. This is probably the deepest supplement the staff has completed to date, as it is full of information and goodies for players and G.M.s alike. Hobomancer has the unique quality of blending reality with fantasy just enough to make it plausible. If you're a fan of Hex Games, or just one of the masses looking for “something different” to play, Hobomancer is the supplement for you.
