I have it. There are some good ideas in it, and I find it is better written than the Manual of the Planes for d20 (which has a similar approach.) If you're looking to create an entire planar topography, combine it with GURPS Religion...

You can have mine if you want it. It's pretty neat but I'm too lazy to use it.

Thanks for the responses. From what I can recall about the book, it seemed very interesting. I paged through one over the weekend at the CON, but didn't really have time get a feel for it (and the price was way to high).

Oh, and incidentally - I met the co-auther Richard Balsley there, but only had a brief chance to talk about it.

Wow, this book is jammed packed with info - have only paged through it and I like what I see. Hope to get started reading this week.

[Thanks again, Dagger!]

That's awesome! I'm glad it found a home where it will be used. It was really neat, but I just didn't put in the effort to use it. There's nothing worse than RPG books collecting dust!

Wordages. Its a pretty esoteric book, but it's packed with good idea mining fodder.

While I think it's good I couldn't agree more with Breakdaddy.
