FAQ Rating: *** (13 reviews; 0 *, 4 **, 6 ***, 3 ****)
- Excellent sourcebook except for too many Mongols and grossly overpowered elder magi.
- All your Slavic needs. Greatly divides the Mythic from the mundane, but gives a good overview of Russia, the Novgorod Tribunal, new slavic hedge-magic, the Slavic Fae and the soon-to-be-arriving Mongol Hordes.
- Great Tribunal book, made me want to play in Novgorod.
- A great Tribunal Book, although I couldn't care less about another brand of hedge mages.
- Yet another book set in the distant wilderness, about being in the distant wilderness, but this time with a millennial theme.
- Thick and meaty, but only useful for sagas set in Russia and Poland. This is the only book whose narrative prose chapter beginnings are actual good reads.
- Seemingly very complete treatment of Russia and Slavic lands. I would like to see the Covenant sheet format used here made the standard presentation format. The Slavic magic and faerie power levels may be too high.
- Good background, interesting setting, of limited use in most games.
- Good, the shaman section is worth it, the other aspects need to looked at closely.
