I discuss the rulebook here:

Good review mate

Looks interesting. I like conceptually the old Quality Die mechanism glad to see it reappear here. I also like the use of playing cards in Old West settings.

Couple small complaints:
Some of the art doesn't deserve a to take up a whole page though. Not even useful for painting inspiration particularly.

The premise is kind of ridiculous. No matter how much the U.S. Senate is "dominated", you can't get to a President-for-Life from there. Better to have dispensed with Congress altogether in some fashion, and the Supreme Court too for that matter.

All that said, it won't stop me from buying it. Looks like a lot of atmospheric fun!

What about the Masonic Grand Lodges? They can't be standing still for this, can they?

Good review, except you left off the faction I'm playing, the Congregation! Voodoo hoodoo and runaway slaves dedicated to fighting the rise of the Undead South! And they look cool too…

Thanks everyone.

Flashman, perhaps sorcerous magic controls both the Senate and Congress. :-)

79thPA, maybe the masons are in league with the Templar-like guys.

Ticket, you're right… in my pleasure at the idea of Confederate necromancers, I forgot about the Congregation.

A promising and interesting game world all together.

The premise is kind of ridiculous.

I, too, find it fantastic, but also have to remind myself that it was a much younger country, with a tested but strained fabric.

Anyway, maybe the Court was 'turned' as well…

He certainly didn't have to SAY for life to make it eventually so.
