Absolutely great universal and rules-light system. It deserve all the possible success. It's highly customizable thanks to the simple system of the Weapons Table and the Character Types give the possibility to start a modern campaing in few minutes. The rules on the vehicles are very simple but effective. QUERP is addictive. Highly advised ;) (sorry for my bad english)

Rather colourful, quite a lot of artwork. Each page has a green circuit board-type frame, which, with the artwork, at 75 pages can use up quite some ink.

The 'universal bullet' rule makes it easier when you have ammunition for 2 or more weapons. So pistols, SMGs, assault rifles all use the same ammunition, instead of using different calibre ammunition (5.56mm, 7.62mm & 9mm), as in most games using firearms.

Possibly an error on P16: Defence starts at 10 plus armour (+3 flak jacket), total=13. But P16 states in the example, that Sgt Joe Edwards (defence of 10+3 flak jacket) has a defence of 12?

Altogether, quite a cheap, simplistic RPG.

Not bad for £3.16.

I'm a big fan of the QUERP fantasy system so I was very happy when QUERP Modern was released. Those familiar with the QUERP mechanics will find that the rules are still very much Quick & Easy; only a few modifications have been made to accomodate modern weaponry and equipment. We have five new character classes for the modern setting, including a pychic with an interesting, but subtle range of powers. The Magic characteristic has been replaced by Psyche and Mana replaced by Chi. Ten new NPC types are also included to serve as opponents and contacts for the Modern PC, and an adventure set in Afghanistan rounds out the book. In all, a very seamless transition between the fantasy and modern systems.

While the back cover says we won't find orcs and goblins here, the crossover potential for modern horror or modern fantasy games certainly exists when one considers the wealth of easily converted information available in the QUERP Bestiary and the fantasy QUERP Player's Companion. I highly recommend QUERP Modern to anyone who enjoys fast-paced, rules-lite systems!

At first glance, the QUERP Modern book makes you scratch your head and say "Another modern setting?" But once you open it up and take a look you find yourself sort of excited by the prospect of using it's lite rules to create characters and run scenarios. I found myself as I read, considering one of my current favorite shows: Burn Notice and how this system could be applied to it. Within minutes I had my own version of Michael Weston put together and was ready to have him help clients along with a Fiona and Sam character that each of my friends put together.

All in all the system is fun, and much like the QUERP Fantasy rules it's exactly what it was promising to deliver: Quick & Easy Role Playing.

In giving it a modern feel, this book has allowed the QUERP rules to open a whole new world of possibilities, the modern spy movie, the psychic thriller, the crime scene investigations show, all of these are now possible using a great, fun, and simple set of rules for a nice night of relaxed role playing or intense action depending on how much you want to do.

I for one, look forward to seeing what other possibilities my friends and I can cook up using the QM rule book
