I put this one at a 2.5, as it didn't do a whole lot for me.
The plant-based cryptic alliance--I mean faction--is a schizophrenic hodge-podge of 3 disparate subgroups...and the animal one has 4. They don't gel that well internally, and they go for the kitchen sink approach.
The Legion (as in a post-apocalyptic French Foreign...) is a campaign in itself, and could be fun.
The Xenophobes are high-tech exterminators of all things "alien"...whatever that means at any given time.
No rules specifics are provided--initiation rites, secret symbols, membership breakdown by Race--and this may be the first time I've ever wanted more "crunch" over "fluff".
