Unlike some other reviews I really liked the mystery pacing mechanism. Also, the mystery generator is really great for sparking ideas.
Also, I've never studied much Roman history, so the setting material was sufficient to give me enough flavor to go on without getting caught up in too much minutia. I found the whole setting very evocative - ideas were popping out all over for me.
High quality artwork, too.
