Climb the social ladder of Dresediel Lex
Help the needy, or laugh callously as the world burns
Drink with undead kings over the ruins of a destroyed civilization
Kill people you may later really wish you hadn't killed
Betray trusted friends and their entire society
Fight giant scorpions and renegade priestsor join forces with them
Look for love in extremely wrong places

I love these game.

Any first impressions?

It says 12+ so I want to know if it feels like adults will enjoy it or is it written for a younger audience?

Also, are there GC achievements?

Thanks!

I haven't played it yet, but Gladstone's one of about three writers in the SF/F world (where he uses the same setting) I'll buy anything by, and I expect the writing to be top-notch.
