The game rules and campaign world come in a single 270+ page soft cover book. The masthead proclaims GateWar¸ 'Believable Fantasy Role-Playing in the World of Vinya'. Each of 8 character races receives a one page data spread and large picture. Elves and dwarves are replaced by Geffren and Bruff (direct parallels)¸ but the other races are more original. Half-Tron are the mysterious offspring of androgynous warrior aliens (Trons) and other PC races¸ having dual opposable thumbs and 2 spines. Kitzu are like pygmy warriors¸ African culture and all. Nequitar Warriors are Amazons and Zod Bowman their mates (a Robin Hood culture existing separate from the females). The Unspeakable provide comic relief as surfer dude nixies. Wellan are mark 1¸ mod 0 humans. Further¸ characters have a chance of additional racial bonuses by being: Potential Element Master (most powerful magic available)¸ Partial Drazzi (race of powerful magic users¸ 2nd to Element Masters)¸ Partial Golden Hero (ancient warrior heroes from Vinya's past). The bulk of the book is taken up by reference and background materials¸ everything is again available on a chart. The list of creatures is a unique blend of native flora/fauna and alien invaders. The alien races are some of the most bizarre¸ horrifying¸ unbalancing and out of place creatures ever detailed. Great amounts of text are dedicated to governments¸ communities¸ taverns and organizations. The rules also show their age and the amount of time spent on them. This game is everything role-playing was¸ detail to the max and randomized at every opportunity. GateWar is truly a master work of some dedicated players but it will always feel like someone else's world.
