This could have been a golden oldie,
This review is from: Relics and Rituals (D20 Generic System) (Hardcover)I really want to like this book but for some reason it doesn't really "do it for me".
This book is well done; the layout makes it easy to read the book. The book presents some stuff that (at the time when the book was written) was quite innovative; like some of the meta-magic feats and the rules for magical rituals.
Still, the book only gets a three-star rating. The reason for this is that it wants to do too much within too little space. You get a glimpse at a new setting (which later on got a more complete treatment in several other books), you get a glimpse at an improved magic system and you get a glimpse at new character classes (but with too little background). To me the book is all about glimpses at the cost of a true focus.
