If you're a fan of Truth & Justice (or of the PDQ system in general) then this game has something for you. It's basically a sourcebook for T&J about super heroes who get their powers from mythological gods, heroes, or monsters (called Sources).
There is an extensive list of gods from the Greek, Norse, and Aztec/Maya pantheons. There are associated Powers, Qualities, and the like for each Source. This helps streamline character creation because your "powers" must fall within the Source's sphere of influence. So, in other words, if you want to talk to fish and breathe underwater, Thor is not a good choice for your Source. Choose Poseidon instead.
There is also a large write-up of the current state of the world. In the Legends Walk setting the year is 2020. This section may not be as useful to you if you plan on using Legends Walk to create mythological supers in a normal modern day setting. But it still filled with excellent ideas to mine and use as you see fit.
There is also a short section on how to use Legends Walk in other settings. Some are historical, some are futuristic, and some are modern earth. They are all inspiring.
If you're a fan of Marvel's Thor comic, the novel American Gods by Neil Gaiman (and you should be!), or want to add a mythological flavor to your T&J game - get this book now! You won't regret it.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: The content of this product is excellent for the price. I am very happy with what I got.
The art is good, if sparse, and most importantly, it didn?t distract me from reading the product.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: I would have liked to buy a PDF + Print version simultaneously but (as of right now) that option does not exist. Instead I have to go the company?s website to purchase the print version. It is my opinion that if I purchase a print version of a book, I should get the pdf version for a few bucks extra. It shouldn?t be two completely separate purchases.
I would have liked to see more pantheons detailed as Sources but I understand space constraints. There are two splat books which offer up four new pantheons, but these write-ups are for the original LODE system, not the PDQ system. Hopefully they will also be converted to PDQ sometime soon.
No Egyptian pantheon? To me, that is a pretty big oversight and one that sorely needs to be corrected (are you listening, Tim?). I would rather have had the Egyptian pantheon than the Aztec/Maya pantheon, but maybe that?s just me.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
