I loved the concept from the start, and I have not been disappointed by it as I read through the book. PCI did a great job here: very evocative setting with simple-yet-functional rules (and a bit of Story Gaming, too
, if that term means anything to you). I like to get games just cause, but I know that I won't get to play/run most of them; Witch Hunter is an exception, and I will be running a Play by Email game soon to start.
As much as Witch Hunter sounds intriguing, I have just way too many systems I play currently and I don't have the finances to support them all. I have not bought an LA book in ages because of having to divert cash flow between LG and Blackmoor ( plus the sporadic play in our area but that seems to be getting fixed soon...
Financially and in terms of time-wise, I lack both to be able to get into this new system. Real life such as family, work, bills, and health come first. I wish the system well however. I used to be an avid recreational player of Werewolf the Apocalypse and have had exposure to other White Wolf. If I were to ever play it, I doubt I would be able to do so with any sense of consistency. I know the kind of PC I would play too which is a shame.
Oh lottery where are you so I could retire early and have more free time?
Well, if it's any consolation, the great thing about WH right now is that it's just the core book, and frankly that's all you need (though I saw the GM's Screen at Gen Con and it was sweet - I should have picked it up then). Get the core book and you have lots of free adventures to use/get inspired by with Dark Providence. I know it's $40, but as someone who is exposed to a lot of games, let me tell you that in 2007, it would be one of the top 5 expenditures for a new game, hands down. There's also the PDF
, as a cheaper option.

Actually, Ramon, care to expand on this? I am quite interested in this aspect of the game, so I'd like to hear what you had to say.
