      Regardless of how I feel about the books, the game was popular with many and all involved deserve kudos for their hard work.

      I wanted to like it, but games like cortex + (I enjoyed cortex) and FATE seem to be beyond my grasp.
      I like games that have stats and powers done the old school way.

      I was a freelancer on a couple of the cosmic supplements (one of which is still unreleased). Very sad to see it canceled.

      And - my understanding from talking to MWP is that all products will be yanked off the market by months end.
