Fan Review: 4 stars. “All in all I gave Eldritch a 4 rating as, despite
the absent monsters, the game is packed with all the information you need
to easily run story rich fantasy games. Everything from character creation
to slinging spells is covered in a slick easy to use game mechanic that
will have your players really enjoying the characters they create..”
"The game is fun and not at all complex to play... Overall, it is a good,
flexible system with a lot to like, open to many gaming styles."
Now fan review: 4 stars. "What you're basically getting with Eldritch
Roleplaying is a toolkit... ERP doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it does
give you a different wheel to play roll around. For a generic fantasy RPG,
it's pretty good."
Now fan review: 4 stars. "Don't let the minor editing glitches and
bland-ish layout put you off. Eldritch is a worthy system for anyone looking
for somethign different, open and flexible. It feels like the start of
something. A great idea that is slowly catching on."
