There were some great ideas in this, and I enjoyed the read. In the end though it just didn't tick off enough of the boxes to become my new "go to" system. It's been a while since I read this, but some things I really didn't care for were it's elegant systems. I understand how most of them are supposed to work, and appreciate the effort at streamlining fantasy gaming, I just didn't care for these particular systems.
SWADE eventually won, and I will be running it for a long time.
