I have read it. And understand it. I also understand that I have better choices. You like it, fine. I don't. It's not the worst out there either. It's nebulous rules wise, and ill defined. The mechanics, such as they are, have a clumsy feel. The way it's written and the unnecessary terminology are the deal breakers for me, though. Like everything else Gygax ever did. There is no particular malice on my part, indeed I know a lot of people like it. Just don't assume that I judged it without knowing what I am talking about.
