Through the great ideas of purchasing books as PDF files I am the proud owner of A|State full version rulebook. I’ve printed it out and am ready to have it thermally bound like many of my other downloaded RPG products. This is a great setting and the rules have a lot of similarity to my own devisings for RPG rules (Duration & Bootstrap systems).
In particular I like the disparity in technology, wealth and resources that all these people in “the city” are forced to be part of. The efforts for change, the efforts for increasing a person’s own resources, and the machinations between conflicting interests are very ripe ground for plots of intrigue and action. Added to this are the brushstrokes of something supernatural in “The Shifted” creatures.
Very happy with this.
