This game is worth purchasing for the social combat system alone. I've never seen a system for resolving social situations that is this imaginative, clearly explained, and fun to play. This is to say nothing of the rest of the book, which would be well worth the price of purchase even without the innovative social combat system. Clear writing, an interesting setting that honors its roots in old-school science fiction gaming, wonderful mechanics for player participation in world creation, and good structure and layout make this an all-around excellent book, despite a few puzzling typos and art that some might view as out-of-place.
Buy this book. You'll like it.
