A complete product in which characters are Justiciars, fighting against the supernatural enemies of the church (Catholic and/or Episcopalian, given the female priest on the cover). A simple system allows for combat, skills, and miracles in the name of the Lord. The skills allow for some nifty cinematic tricks, as do the miracles.

The presentation is good, with thematic Bible verses and prayers serving as flavor text throughout. The only strange thing I saw was that one round of combat damage does the same regardless of the weapon used. Makes for quick fights, but folks who like differentiation of weapons will be scratching their heads.

The game is simple enough to begin play nearly immediately, yet offers enough horizons for a longer campaign. Rules and advice for running horror games are included, as well as some characters and foes. Expect as much competent action as you do horror.
