Quality work, guys! Just enough wit to keep the crunch interesting, and there's definitely a very-appreciated new emphasis on clarity (in, for example, the difference between spending and burning Edge, which I'm ashamed to admit I apparently had been misunderstanding for several years now). Lots of production values, too-- the art's good, and the aesthetic of the book is just glorious. Love the chart and sidebar borders.

Not sure I'm crazy about the new test notation, which seems kind of verbose... I'm probably going to end up shortening it to something like Mechanic + LOG [M, 18, 1h] instead of Mechanic + Logic [Mental] (18, 1 hour), but I can understand not wanting to scare off new players with a bunch of really complicated acronyms and notation.

Overall? If the rest of the book is half this good, I'm gonna be a happy GM.

(Also, found two typos you might want to fix: p 49, sidebar, last sentence: "primer runner" p 55, Contacts, third paragraph, last sentence: "BThe Loyalty rating ranges fro,")
