Starting with the good: -This is a great looking book. The cover and inside art is creative and fun. Overall, a very inviting presentation. -The rules are LIGHT. Character creation is FAST. This system will best benefit players who are new to role playing and younger, first-time game masters.

The bad: -The “Microsettings” section is half the book and as a whole, isn’t all that useful. At best, I would call this collection “setting ideas.” While these scenarios could be considered inspiration, most are too short and have no useful structure for a new GM to follow. Also, I’d love to see some of them include a map. -I was excited to see all the dinosaurs in the monster section until I realized all of them are very similar mechanically. -The “Running Adventures” section for game masters just isn’t helpful. It’s 4 pages of very general advice. I want some actionable points, things a young GM can take and directly implement at their table. Example of play is absent and could prove very helpful. -There is no list of items or equipment. The book states that these are provided by the GM but I feel like this is a lost opportunity to introduce cool magical items.

Conclusion: While anyone can pick up and play this system easily, I think it would be best for young adults (8-10) who are interested in GMing for the first time. With that in mind, the GM section and Microsettings section should provide more focused, comprehensible advice for what a GM does on and off the table. There’s no talk of homebrewing rules, traits, or spells, no advice for creating magical items or weapons. I think these are important subjects for a rules-light system that is bound to attract first-time rpg players.
