This was my first purchase from Ryan Chaddock Games. It won't be the last.

Where do I start? This is an incredible bit of work! From advice about building player character involvement in matters political, to an entirely new application for the Cipher System that handles the ins and outs of dirty political tricks (courtly version), to a collection of noble houses and knightly orders as strange and weird and wonderfully diverse as the rest of the setting, there's just too much good stuff here.

As someone who likes a touch of the ol' Machiavelli in his plotlines, I am greatly pleased to say that the Great Houses in this book are structured to reflect the Ninth World in a way that makes even the 'tried and true' sort of political plotline stand out a little bit more.

An excellent product, in my humble opinion.

The chapter about the noble houses in itself is worth far more than five bucks, and i instantly adopted it in my campaign set in the city of Charmonde. The different factions works perfectly well in a big city, and the more military ones are perfect with the nearby war against the gaians.

If i have to regret something, it's that the author is not working with Monte Cook directly. His work is top notch quality and could be included in some of the core books of the numenera game line, IMHO.

A must have for any seasoned gamers who are looking for a campaign with more than raiding and fighting.

I have a big problem with this book; I wish that I had thought of it first. This book presents courtly intrigue in a way that is unique to the setting of Numenera. Courtly intrigue and politics are my favorite types of roleplaying themes and are sadly not well-represented in products being produced.

The book has exactly one metric buttload of new crunch options. There are some great new Foci, my favorite being Bends Light and Space (I like playing the invisible guy who gets to know everyone's secrets). At least one of them is hideously overpowered, though. I would not let a player take Carries Untold Treasures, as it's Tier Six Ability is simply too strong. I would have also liked to see a little more on actually attending court, such as a sample courtly session, and some encounter tables.

Those minor quibble aside, this is a great product. RCG have done a good job branding their work, and this gorgeous number continues their streak of great products.
