First in a quarterly series of e-zines to support the upcoming Mhar fantasy roleplaying game, this is an admirable first effort. Even though it is a support publication for Mhar, it is sufficiently generic enough in its information to be usable for almost any fantasy game. It gives the reader a clear, concise way to handle the lower classes and their lives without going overboard on details. The system for constructing logical medieval villages is very well done and makes perfect sense.
Primarily human-centric, the other races are only briefly mentioned. I suspect that we'll get more detailed info in an upcoming Grimoire or the actual rulebook. All in all, a worthwhile purchase if your world is medieval in focus, the lower citizenry play a prominent role, and you don't feel like slogging through a several hundred page book to find the detail you're looking for.
