Mongoose my copy yesterday. First rpg thing (aside from the original gamebooks) I've ever bought, so I can't really comment on the rules too much. However, the book itself is excellent. It's worth the price even if you, like me, will probably never play the game (unless some sort of solo supplement thingy comes along).

My only gripe is with some of the artwork. Most of it simply is nowhere near Brian William's standards, and some of it, specifically anything with a Sommlending Knight, is pretty atrocious (disappointing when you consider the wealth of fairly historically plausable 13th century-esque iconography in the game books).

The content is top notch though. I can't wait for the supplements. :)
