This 128-page rulebook contains all you need to start playing. (But to be honest, although characters can be created without it we do strongly recommend the Life Board). The rules a very simple and are designed for fast role play, not slow rule play. There is also extensive background information and examples of play — all in the form of a story progressing along with the book. When you got a handle of the easy rules and have generated some interesting characters you can start playing your first scenario; The Oldest Killer, which together with a sample Character Sheet concludes this cloth-binded hardcover book.
