||One of the most intriguing settings and toolkits out there, curiously ahead of its time.
Second World sourcebook presents a parallel earth as a fantasy world, but is also flexible enough to use your favorite fantasy game world as a destination for modern characters. Being able to use Earth and plug in fantasy ideas is a very convenient setup.
The way that the warden powers shapes the world can be used to plug in a variety of different setting locales; I use Nyambe, Freeport, and Legends of the Samurai. It's also my world of choice when running published modules.
LIKED: The in-depth discussion of converting between d20 modern and D&D.
The idea of warden powers
The pact system (Marilith forensic surgeons and summoned bio weapons... how cool is that?)
DISLIKED: Some of the setting elements could use fleshed out a bit more. If there were room...
QUALITY: Very Good
VALUE: Very Satisfied
