In short:

As a backer of this on Kickstarter, I'm disappointed in this. The premise had such potential, but in the end, it feels like nothing more than an OSR grab on the coattails of the Hellboy RPG Kickstarter with bad writing and desperate need of an editor.

As a fan of the genre, this brought nothing new to the table, and was an abbreviated Black Hack with minimal heroic flavoring. As someone who's growing increasingly burned out on (and burned by) OSR and the OSR/d20 approach to heroes, this didn't help. There isn't anything new here for the genre or style of play; the opportunity was there and it was dropped.

As an editor, I cringed every time I turned a page: inconsistent writing, missing or an overabundance of punctuation, and a poor background color choice make this an unpleasant to read title at best and impossible to read at worse.

If you're a die-hard OSR fan, you might find some enjoyment here. Otherwise, I cannot recommend this to anyone.

Anthony, Please contact me directly on the Kickstarter and i'll give you a full refund. Also - really wish you'd reached out with your concerns earlier. We did at least two revisions of the pdf incorporating feedback from KS backers. Are you sure you are looking at the latest pdf? If you missed our revisions, perhaps you didn't get the latest download with those changes. Might be worth a check. Also - just for the record - we never claimed to be do anything new with the Black Hack. We were very specific (it's said 3x on the main KS page) that we're using Hack the RPG by Eric Bloat. This is an OSR ruleset that is a hybrid combination of The Black Hack by David Black and The Blackest of Deaths Game System by Eric Bloat. I can understand your disappointment and your desire to see something new in the OSR space. But we never once anywhere on the KS page claimed we were doing that. We were very clear that we were using Hack the RPG and just adding 3 new classes. In any case, sorry you were disappointed. Please reach out and I'll give you a full refund.
