At a first glance this is very nicely presented, like other games from this company, with lots of art and excellent layout. If you actually want to print it out that's going to be a problem, it's going to eat printer ink/toner, but it looks pretty good on screen. Like many modern games the idea is to start out with a character concept then build the character around it. e.g. "Exile from faerie who wants to find a way to return home safely." Statistics are based mainly on skills, which is a reasonably good way to avoid ridiculously strong or weak characters.

I haven't had time to get into this in depth, but it looks like it's going to be fun to play and gives you quite a lot for your money. Well worth a look if you like the urban fantasy genre.
