Forged in Fire takes the path of Perfect Storm. It contains an intense amount of history about the South while bringing you a great amount of graphics and blue prints. The Vehicle compendium makes it easy to upgrade your standard load outs for any vehicle or gear; it displays a picture for each. The army builder section displays each unit the way you will need to build it - right down to picturing the number of infantry that belong on each base. The only draw back to the pdf is that the rich graphics slow down my processor a little bit. If that is the price of a job well done I'll take it.

This book, with the previous one (Perfect Storm - NuCoal Field Guide) are so far the best book DP9 has produced. "Forged in Fire" is very interesting to read with great background information updates and to look at as the layout and the artwork are superb. The way the squads selection works now makes it easier to choose, especially for a new player. My only deception is that my favourite army, the MILICIA, doesn't have access to all the previous variants as it used to. But since I also like the Mekong Dominion, there's still hope as they play style of the Mekong Dominion army has got my attention. Overall, this book is a blast!

My previous review was 4 stars. This one is a 5, because the staff proved its worth. After editing, they also added in a few more tidbits into the rules to smooth out the rules.

Forged in Fire, for all those who are new to Heavy Gear, details in particular the Southern faction, also known as the Allied Southern Territories. Simply put, a lot has happened in the history of the planet Terra Nova, and Forged in Fire puts a special focus on the South and its five separate political entities, and the military forces they command.

After giving you a very in-depth read into the history, they also go through a huge selection of Gears, striders, and tanks that can be used by the armies, each of which has fascinating lineart that utterly preps you for the army list builds.

Using the approach started in the book for NuCoal, Perfect Storm, Forged in Fire has you start with what Priority Level army you would like to go with, as well as Threat Value, and then gives you five separate regimental types, each with its own special focus, including Infantry, Gear, Armor, Airborne, and Special Forces.

The art is outstanding, and its introduces new players and old to the world that Terra Nova is fast becoming since the arrival of Earth's Colonial Expeditionary Force, or CEF. The South will rise, or it will fall, on the choices of its leaders and the actions of its troopers. Are you Geared up?

In short, I am very happy with the new editing, and with the smaller size of this book, it is that much easier for folks to go into and flip through pages and pages of material with hardly any trouble... even for an old dinosaur of a laptop like mine. :)

Welcome to the South, troopers.
