Powers & Perils - by Richard Snider - a review
Why am i putting this bad review about P&P on my website? I am not doing Powers & Perils a favour, doing that.
Because i want to highlight the quite different reactions that the game aroused since its publication.
Maybe more than any other fantasy rpg's, Powers & Perils has always aroused tremendous enthusiasm OR tremendous despise. I find this is fascinating, and tells something about the game having something unique buried in it.
When you read and learn P&P, you need to have patience. If you read anything else while studying P&P, you are doomed to fail.
If you ever decide to learn P&P, you must devote weeks dedicated entirely to it, reading nothing else.
Never skip a page, and again, be patient. If you are in a hurry, you won't understand it and you won't like it.
Start from book I and absolutely never open book II until you finish the first one.
Never skip a page until you have fully understood the page you are in.
This is the only way to get a glimpse of this game and to appreciate the beauty that is hidden in it.
