A perk of having bought into Fria Ligan’s Twilight 2000 project was a discount on other Fria Ligan games. Consequently, I picked up a number of their core rule sets1, of which Coriolis was one.
Coriolis is an SFRPG, apparently inspired by the Arabian Nights. The game mechanics are similar enough to FL’s Alien that having read one gives a huge boost to learning this version of the rules. It’s a game of comparatively low-powered, fragile people in a setting filled with intrigue and forgotten mysteries which if examined correctly will reduce one’s PC to pink mist.
As one would expect from FL, the rulebook is an impressive-looking tome. The illustrations are a giant step up from what was considered acceptable when I got into RPGs 40 years ago. My only gripe2would be that white print on a black background is hard for me to read.
