Well howdy, this is another hit (with a raise) for Pinnacle Entertainment. I've been interested in this setting for about seven years, and have enjoyed everything I've read for it. Now I will have a home for some of the ideas that is excellent setting inspires. The document is well laid out, and the art works well with the mood of the material. The generators included, Organization names, Adventure, and Demonic traits, look like they will inspire countless stories set in and around Pinebox, the hometown for ETU (Go Ravens!!!). I have friends, and family that are, or have lived in eastern Texas, and now I can throw all the fun of a rampaging Big Foot, or Drunk Sorority girl at them...which sometimes could be one and the same...

The book includes the basic character creation information, and updates some of the Savage Worlds edges and hindrances, while adding a few that are tailored to the books setting. It's really an easy read, and incorporates some of the ideas from other Savage World books that seem to dovetail with the setting quite well. I am a huge Savage Worlds fan, but even if you wanted to use another system (but, really, why would you?) it would be simple enough to convert and the setting will hold up.

All and all, I think it's really good, I would have liked it to be longer, but I'm sure there will be lots more offerings that will flesh out the setting in the future.
