Perfect game system for the setting,
By A Customer
This review is from: Wheel of Time Role Playing Game (Hardcover)If you've read the WOT books then this will certainly appeal to you. If you haven't read them then it may prompt you to read one of the greatest chronicles ever! It faithfully covers the books in all aspects (classes, skills, feats, One Power). The rules for the one power are excellant. They allow you to recreate weaves and talents found in the novels. The only problem is that some of the deadly talents are lost meaning that only the Forsaken, Rand Al Thor or Mazrim Taim know them. Hmmmmm... gonna be tricky trying to get Demandred or Moridin to show me skimming or Balefire!
As to the book itself! The artwork is excellant and the layout is brilliant.
What makes this setting perfect is the history behind it. The novels are so realistically and humanly complex and unlike any other setting, which will give great opportunity for adventures set in the wheel of time world. Hopefully this setting will last because it would be great to see more top quality supplemants for this world. Providing it survives the Last Battle that is!! Ahem!
