      Gotta say, I like the soundtrack! I could definitely see playing some of these in the background during a game session.

      we have taken the feedback on the layout being hard to read to heart. We've got the layout folks working on fixing it now

      Guys, thanks for the new releases! It's great to see Stark City in it's more-or-less final form, and I'm really enjoying it. I finally had time to dig into it this weekend. However, I'm finding it difficult to read due to the saturation of the background. The blue color limits the contrast on the text, which is fatiguing, and the upper right corner in particular has so much distracting stuff going on that I can barely read it at all. That background is indeed nicely designed and it's the most gorgeous brick wall I've ever seen. But it's almost all I can see and definitely getting in the way of the content. I hope you can turn it down a little before print. I can't imagine trying to read it on paper like this. I'll post a fair review somewhere once I've had time to absorb the setting, but so far it's exactly what I was expecting...awesome! But I can only read a few pages at a time.
