This role-playing game features the same size and basic format as a Fighting Fantasy book, but it's primarily designed as a multi-player RPG set in sixteenth-century Europe. It's obvious that a lot of historical research went into the game, the game system is basic and familiar (point-based character creation, percentile-based attribute checks for performing actions), the setting is effective, and a wide variety of possible character professions is available. The book includes a brief solitaire adventure to get players started.

The book was reissued as an eBook by Arion Games. Arion also released several new accessories (though no additional solo adventures as of this writing).
