I bought this supplement with the intention of running a Savage Worlds campaign set in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms period, since the game seems to match perfect for the setting. I just want to say that my opinions of it are framed more around the potential of the setting rather than the reality of the time period, with my main criticisms being that I wish more focus was placed on the former rather than the latter.

What I would have liked to see:

  • A new arcane background to represent the powers seemingly held by Taoist priests from the stories of the period.
  • More crunch for the interesting features that were described, like Chariots and duels between the officers mid-battle.
  • A guide to naming your characters, as well as more detail on social roleplaying (kowtowing, phrases etc).

What I liked:

  • The descriptions of strategy and historical events helps to draw you into the setting and think like a late-Han era officer.
  • The timeline is really useful for lining up your campaign with the historical context, especially for long-form campaigns.
  • The amount of detail into the military structure is really strong for people who want to play a Weird Wars-like campaign.
  • Interesting weapons and armours, such as paper armour that becomes stronger when wet, but has a chance of breaking.

For the price and for how rare finding RPG books for the Three Kingdoms actually is, I'd recommend Ultimate Iron Age Guide: Three Kingdoms China, it's got almost everything you need for running campaigns in the setting.
