The writing and art style of this game coupled with the refreshing and fast paced take on theatrical LARP made this an excellent purchase. Very excited to see all the new Skiens and continue playing with my friends.

System is super easy, and, looking it over the depth of what can be done is elegant. I felt like I was reading GURPs for LARP. Looking at the Chronos FB group I saw that this is just one of two books for the system, with the second focusing on the ST side of things. I'm looking forward to seeing what materials are provided for organizing and running games. I used to play MET and remember how horrible the old combat system was. This looks so much faster and easier for conflict resolution. I ran a quick sit down game in a more table top style using the cards, and found it worked great for that.

Only downfall: This is a system, not a game itself. Don't expect to pick this up and be given the a world to run. You need to add the genre and game world to the mechanics for play. This is cool, because we ran a Cthulhu game using the cards, but it needs to be treated like a tool instead of a game world. I didn;t buy 'Cthulhu the LARP' with this, I bought the system and was able to run Cthulhu on it. But, as an ST, it was super easy for me to run a game and super fast. I was able to put together player decks (we used 2 decks for 4 players and probably could have done it with 1) and was playing within half an hour.

All in all, baller product. If is supported with additional stuff, like game worlds or even just like power packs or the like, I will definitely pick those up too.

The customization options are almost endless. You can make any type of character you can think of and this system allows you to play it. A very easy to pick up and learn system that will help people who have a hard time going through rule books understand quickly and play. I look forward to running Chronos based games in the near future!

Hi guys! Just bought your Book and both decks PDFs (also ordered physical versions) and I see the potential of your system but... I'm somewhat disappointed with the rulebook (I'm reading the PDF while waiting for the decks and book). Couldn't get how the player get their Aether (draw one card at the beginning of the session?), nor how they get XP. What about character development? Do the players get to spend XP to buy new cards? Considering the expensive price (and although the cards look GREAT), I was hoping for a more polished and comprehensive book. I just feel that I'll have to buy supplements to see characters growing up, I'd like to see a more polished version of the core book in the future. I shouldn't HAVE TO buy a Skein to enjoy the game. It should be an optional thing. Being modular isn't the same thing as being incomplete, right?

Hello. There are two rule books, one is a players guide and one is a game organizers guide. It looks like you only reviewed and downloaded the players guide. Items such as character development, purchasing of cards, drawing aether, gaining XP, and the like are all covered in the game organizers guide which is also provided for free in pdf format.
