FAQ Rating: ** (9 reviews; 0 *, 8 **, 1 ***, 0 ****)
- I really hated this at first, because of the new rules, but it grew on me. The setting material is very helpful for a saga set in the western Rhine.
- A detailed if uninteresting look at a covenant in the Western Holy Empire. New XP advancement systems and some neat spells at the back.
- Much better than Mistridge.
- Good, if bland, for new players but with a twist of "My book will rock the campaign world" that left a sort of aniseed aftertaste.
- It offers a complete setting for those unfamiliar with a covenant or medieval history.
- Solidly presented sample covenant. Not especially useful unless you want to play there, or use as a rival, but sets a possible comparitive standard. Suffers from some modern-fantasy sheen.
- Not glaringly bad, but not very interesting.
