Anybody who's interested can check out the intro packet here. It's a zipped .PDF file. Word of warning: for some reason, the PDF file tends to choke browsers, so you should save it to your hard disk and view it directly in Acrobat Reader.
I'd like to know what people think ... I realize it's not exactly packed with detail, but that's more to leave off spoilers than anything else. I'll be posting more details of the game as we actually start to play.
