I have been playing rpgs since the debut of the revised 2nd edition of ad&d. I have seen them all and played almost as much.
Do you remember the excitement you felt the first time you ever read THAT players guide... well get ready to fall in love all over again.
On the technical side: professional layout, good to sublime interior art. Clear and clean rules with good examples. Enough content to create a vast array of different characters. Lots of spells (and ways to improvise on them). Great rule system in witch everything feel just right. Not to complicated are to simple.
Why you want this book: Its all about roleplaying. "REAL ROLEPLAYING". The rules let you do whatever you want without ever letting you done. With a clever system everything is possible and supported with an easy yet solid system of rules.
Get it, enjoy it, talk about it!!
P.S. I dont work for are know anyone from White Silver Publishing
