I find it hard to articulate my thoughts on any piece of media, thus I don't write reviews,a simple like or don't like, aren't really helpful to other people.
I'm 29 now and had been waiting for this game since I was in my mid to late before it was called Equinox, when I first learned about the game it was referred to as the Eight World!
Back in my teens hanging out in Shadowrun centric corners of the Internet I learned of a planned sequel game to Shadowrun set in the far future, a science-fantasy space opera set in he Eight World.
Side Note: The fantasy prequel setting of EarthDawn is the Fourth World, the earth from 10,000 BC to 2010 AD was the Fifth World, Shadowrun is the Sixth World, and Space Opera setting was to be the Eigth World roughly 10,000 AD.
I was hooked, Shadowrun is one of my favorite settings space opera is my favorite genre so a space opera sequel is 100% my jam.
But...the game never came out, years went by I'd scour the net and found nothing new about the project, which lead me to believe that it had unfortunately folded.
Then I on a whim did one last search to see if there were any science fantasy settings, which lead me to Equinox and to my pleasant surprise it was "the Eight World" project under a different name and publisher.
So I bought the book, read it and the only thing aggravating or offensives about it, is the time that it took to finally be released; unfortunately Cooperate/Licensing shenanigans happen.
It's an excellent system antagonistic setting book, that tells Players and GMs everything that they need to run games in the world, adventure hooks included.
The only possible issue with book could be the art, while I like it just fine it's not modern game book art.
No Equinox use 90s black and white art that's very reminiscent of the art used in Shadowrun's older editions and that might not work for some people.
In conclusion I give the book two thumbs up and say congratulations on a job well done to Vagrant Workshop.
P.S. If you're not going to use Vagrant Work shops Match System, Savage Worlds is going to be the easiest and fastest game system to run Equinox.
