If you’re reading this review, I’m assuming that you both like the Clans and you like the Jihad storyline. I’m giving this product three stars because, while a good value, I’m not terribly interested in knowing where specific clusters are located and at what strength. If you are interested in those things, I can see you giving this product four or even five stars, especially considering the price.
The product opens with a four-page report to Devlin Stone from David Lear, which I found pretty interesting. This is followed by a brief status report for each of Clans in Inner Sphere space with the location, experience, loyalty and strength of their clusters. I found this a bit dry, but fans of these reports would probably appreciate them more than me. The book then ends with five pages of color maps showing the deployment of the units. Despite just saying that I didn’t care for this information, I actually found this map really cool and I’ll probably refer to this more than the actual status reports.
Overall, I think that this is a good product for the money. On a side note, I’m glad that Catalyst Game Labs has embraced PDFs because it’s letting them pump out niche products like this. If you absolutely have to know where Hell’s Horses’ 11th Mechanized Cavalry is, then here you are. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for pdf additions to Jihad Conspiracies: Interstellar Players 2.
