Probably one of my favourite "worlds of adventure" to date! When I was done reading this book I genuinely wondered why Evil Hat suddenly produced a 100+ page book, only to realize it was a 45 page book that felt like it contained 100 pages worth of content.

Fair warning: I haven't played this yet.

Despite that, as a armchair gamer and a fan of the Fate system, I love the new ways this product pushes the system forward in support of thoughtful horror as the ordinary world twists into the surreal around the PCs, letting them seemlessly fight the scene itself, switch their character sheet upside down, fight psychics with magic and Bible verses, and benefit from both teamwork and selling out.

The product may shoehorn you into playing a hermetic Christian cultist in the deep south, but given the generic way its occult powers work, the rules for making demon pacts in-play, and the suggestion that the monsters you're fighting could be anything from angels to classical myths to urban legends, it should only take a few minor tweaks to let you play an independent Practitioner (mage), normal person who's not in the know at first, or even a monster yourself in any part of the world -- and its mythology -- you please.

It's spine tingling in the same way reading a WoD book is!
