This download is completely missing the "When Empires Fall" article from Challenge magazine - it includes a 4-page pdf of the TNE cover and three pages of overview of the TNE system - basically it is the old ad copy for the release.
a fantastic idea pursued with alot of energy that still manages to fall somewhat flat.
LIKED: The setting, the idea.
DISLIKED: The game system is not well presented - it is not clear and suffers from sufficient examples. A very difficult game system to get ones head around - not because of they system itself, but because of the presentation.
Thank you for your comments. Dog Town is written in street speak and flavor text which makes it in my opinion an interesting read. I agree however that the lack of succinct dryness in the text does make it more difficult to extract a quick explanation of the rules. To do this you might want to make use of the quick reference sheets at the back of the book which compact the information into an easier digestible form. Cold Blooded Games have also some free downloads on the website that speed up character generation and make it easier to create throwaway punks.
Also if there is anything I can do to clear up any ambiguities for you I will be happy to correspond with you via email. As if you enjoy the setting and idea it will be a shame for this issue to ruin the game for you.
