5.0 out of 5 stars Classic RPG!
This book, although I have the 2nd Edition as well, in places is easier to read, and the layout is plainer. One thing I would have suggested to them at the time this book was being produced was maybe a few insertions of colorized premier art.
Although, that is not to say I do not like the black & white art. I am actually a fan of B&W art and photography. The classic...

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic RPG!, June 21, 2014
This review is from: Palladium Role-Playing Game (Paperback)
This book, although I have the 2nd Edition as well, in places is easier to read, and the layout is plainer. One thing I would have suggested to them at the time this book was being produced was maybe a few insertions of colorized premier art.
Although, that is not to say I do not like the black & white art. I am actually a fan of B&W art and photography. The classic images
do more to enhance this book, and its successor, the 2nd Edition book.

Also, please bear in mind, that this is the "revised" Palladium Fantasy RPG, not the PFRPG 2nd Edition. The 2nd Edition is the cover with the Wizard peering into the Crystal Ball with a Dragon peaking over his shoulder, as if to sneak up on him.
This book also does a great job providing sections for the different types of Magic available in this game as O.C.C (Occupational Character Class) choices. Wizard, Witch, Warlock, Summoner, Ward, Diabolist.
I also like that the Knight and Palladin are two separate classes.

5.0 out of 5 stars best role playing game I ever used, less onerous than D&D, April 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Palladium Role-Playing Game (Paperback)
It could be the greatest RPG.

much simpler than AD&D 4e
has parry and dodge as part of combat
very very cool rpg
mind mage class
witch class with evil pact
warlock elementalist class
circle magic
summmoner class
runes
extravagant pencil art AWESOME
pantheons
clergy can curse and do all kinda awesome things clerics cant in D&D

missing: alchemist class, although I am not a fan of pathfinders
could use some work [as if d&D couldn't]: abilities being used to create levels aka your skills=your class
the magnitude of abilities: for example a gorilla is 3x as strong as man, lion 4x as fast
idea that armour reduces damage, and heavier armour hert agility

WHY NO VIDEO GAME or MMPORG???

tons of awesome monsters and a great dungeon adventure included

its feature of adding to rolls simplified combat in the extreme

its inclusion of summoner diabolist etc were really missing features in D&D or at the very least under developed

mind mage as well

lacks perhaps the lush demigod background and vast monster supply of D&D but you can import them easily enough, along with ideas liek armour reducing damage etc etc

also reccomend tunnels and trolls, adding in some cthulhu baddies, and having tons of fun

OUTSTANDING RPG

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacking Data, December 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Palladium Role-Playing Game (Paperback)
The book was a little more worn than indicated,but still in fair shape,no loose pages. There were some markings in it but most were in pencil so they were erasable,the ink ones were a pain though.

Overall a good find,if under described.
