The artwork is awesome, the rules wonderfully streamlined, the plot point...not as good. This book is clearly a love-note to the howard fan. If you intend to play the campaign, I strongly urge you to stop reading this review.

My issue is the same as it is with rippers, wiggy is an awesome writer and he often offers wonderful glimpses of insight in the craft of storytelling I could never hope to glean on my own, however, this is not his best plot point. The characters wander around collecting relics and visiting locals from the various stories. While not as obnoxious as Babylon 5's introduction adventure (one of the episodes translated directly into an adventure) it's still not actually very original. Far too many of the adventures seem to give you the impression that Kane's own journey's ultimately meant nothing, and after the final battle there is very little mystery left in the Kane world. A shame, considering in most kane stories we may understand why something happened but how is never fully explained, this book struggles to elaborate on the why and how.

Overall, a good work, just not pleased with the plot point. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979245583, Hardcover)

A Landless Man. A Wanderer. A Puritan. Solomon Kane is many things, but above all, he is a hero. In a time of savagery and horror, he wanders the darkest corners of the Earth and battles the evil he finds hidden within. From the savage interior of Africa to the cold forests of Europe, the frigid mountains of Cathay, and the blood-soaked jungles of South America he battles merciless butchers, deathless queens, and even winged demons in his pursuit of righteous vengeance. Now your hero can follow the Path of Kane. Whether a Puritan wanderer, a misguided pirate, or a soldier of fortune, a time of legend has come and fate has chosen her champions. Kane began the fight against an ancient evil so great it could destroy humanity, but now others must carry the torch into the darkness. The Savage World of Solomon Kane is a roleplaying game based upon the incredible works of Robert E. Howard, author of Conan the Barbarian(R), Kull the Conqueror(R), and countless other great heroes and heroines. Inside this lavishly-illustrated 352 page book are the complete and award-winning Savage Worlds rules customized for Kane's world, as well as all-new setting and magic rules to capture the spirit of Robert E. Howard's dark tales. Game Masters will also find terrible creatures and merciless foes drawn from Kane's own travels and beyond as well as dozens of Savage Tales and a ready-to-run Plot PointTM Campaign. Strap on a brace of pistols, sharpen your blade, and steel your mind. You are about to walk the Path Solomon Kane!
