Lessons learned
It is possible to streamline the d20 system!

Opinion
I only borrowed the book from a friend, and was primarily interested in the game system, and not the setting. I originally intended to give it back sooner since I bought the True20 PDF from RPGNow - and the setting didn't seem like my kind of thing. However, a truly horrible review over on RPGNet prompted me to read it all the way through, so that I could give it a review that was actually fair.

And indeed, while the setting still isn't what I normally prefer, it's not nowhere near as bad as that reviewer makes it out to be. And the system, despite a few bugs, seems to be a very good system to run Fading Suns with...
