Jul 22, Chad rated it it was amazing Shelves: role-playing-games. I personally loved this book. I always have preferred playing more of the outcast type of character.
I have some very memorable characters I created with this book. Aug 09, Love of Hopeless Causes rated it really liked it. Humanoids are legion. They do not forget, but sometimes they forgive--when you are playing one!
