This is a great little game! Played in a fun campaign arc!

The only "flaw" is that some GMs interpret partial successes as a deep cost for light success result. e.g., There's only so often you gun can be kicked around the floor when you keep rolling but don't make a clear success.

As much as I once loved the world building of Hunter: The Vigil, it's hard for me to imagine saying, "yeah, I'd like to play a Storyteller game" when this exists. So much freedom to make so many types of characters and it's a finely tuned machine for these sorts of adventures.

And the progression clock for threats is a great design idea that works for D&D, too, for DMs looking for something other than site-based adventures.

My PC was a clockwork angel working for a BRPD organization. Ended up sacrificing myself to save the world by becoming a physical cage to imprison the endgame evil.
