This and its' partner book, Center Space, have an interesting premise-humans find an artifact, and end up having everyone else in the galaxy dependent on them to survive, after an occupying force leaves power. Yet, humans are considered weak, ineffective, and downtrodden. Makes me wanna play a human in this game. The other races are far more accepted in this game universe. But, the technology is unique, sort of a biomechanical type.
You do have wizard and clerics, of a sort, in this world. You also have the sci-fi gaming archetypes-the aloof, mysterious aliens who try to guide the lesser races, the honorable warrior race, the sneaky race that grifts, scams, and scrounges its' way around the galaxy (in this case, humannity, now all psionic).
The backstory IS interesting reading, about the elevation, fall, and ongoing rebuilding of humanity. How they harness this new, leftover technology to rebuild their race, and keep the rest of the newly-freed races going (the galaxy is dependent on the energy source found on Earth for transport and essential survival, to the point that any other tech is considered mysterious).<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: Center Space is so packed with good stuff, they had to split it up into two books!<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: The website for the company that made this is gone, so the support material is also gone. That is where you find some of the best tidbits for a RPG!<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
