Peter & Sean, this is fantastic work. I bought. I raved. I badgered others to buy! There are old favorites and all new foes cementing the DF line as the system that needs to be the system dungeon role players use.

The illustrations are particularly good and just make me even more rabid to see this book, if not the whole DF line in hard back and full color.

It isn't strictly new is it? Or is there some difference from Powers?

I think it is the same as in Powers, actually, so only new to DF (which doesn't require Powers).

I finally got around to reading it, and it's a great item. The art rocks, and the written content is up to Mr. Punch's and Mr. Dell'Orto's usual and very high standards.

Thank you for the high praise.

And yes, the art pretty much rocks! I'm quite pleased with the look-and-layout of the book.

It's new as far as DF is concerned, not as far as GURPS in general goes. Please remember that lots of people who don't have much of a GURPS library do have DF. Items that only appear in Powers or Martial Arts don't exist for them until I put said items in a DF supplement.

Sure, I was just trying to determine if there is anything new for me in it. I've got a limited budget, and DFM1 is unfortunately lower priority than some other new releases. Really new new traits might change that.

Lots of new stuff in there, sir_pudding. The mobs are either new or good uptakes of standard dungeon fare. Sure, everyone has carnivorous apes, but gladiator apes? O.O

And the art really is good. I suppose that's not a draw for a lot of folks, but I like art.
