    "An Amazing Game" I've been playing RPGs for 25 years and in all that time there was no game that gave me the lattitude as a player and game master to explore the story as Reve. I started playing Reve 12 years ago (sans english rulebook - that college french suddenly came in awfully handy) and the world simply never stopped drawing me back. Finally in english, the rules are clean and clear - but there's a subtle complexity to the mix of Reve that gives players the ability to consider their actions by applying their strengths. That open approach to problems makes the characters far more real than any system I've ever played (and believe me, I've played far too many). As a result - worlds built in Reve tend to be far more richly detailed and far more 'alive'. Even RPG neophytes can pick this game up and enjoy the experience. Once one comprehends the skill vs stat lookup table - and adjusting difficulty based on the issue at hand, the game simply flows from there.

    "I love the game! :o)" You can find my review on As an update to that review, I'd like to point out here that "Dream Master" has since be replaced by "Dream Keeper." A very good change!

    "No doubt about it, it's a gem." I stumbled across Reve by accident, while mindlessly searching RPG.NOW. Something about this obscure (in the U.S) game caught my attention. I really don't know what it was. A quick search of RPG.NET lead me to a very "snarky" review (The reviewers name, I don't remember, and honestly it does not matter), complained that the book was just to hard to read, and that the average gamer would toss it aside, because the words were to big. I have to admit, I did chuckle at the review, but I became obsesed with the game. For a month I toyed with buying a copy, and then finally I did. First : I have no idea where the reviewer was coming from. The game is not that hard to read, and no, I didd not need a dictionary, despite your claims. Second: No regrets. I don't know what it is about this game. Maybe it's the "old school" charm, or maybe it's just the style of wrtting, but it's wonderful. It's really to bad it took it so long to... More > come to English speakers (readers?), because I have no doubt this is a classic.< Less

    "a game of all seasons" I have been reading and playing Reve for a few months now, and I believe that Reve is an outstanding system. I have been sharing the rules with my gaming group, and they have enjoyed what they have seen. I think that Reve is a wonderful blend of old school RPG's (like Chivalry & Sorcery) with a story and world view that is unique in the role playing community.

    "Fabulous Reve!" This game is fantastic! I discovered it in the original French version a few years ago and since then I stop playing anything else. The background is highly original and the rules are simple and powerful at the same time. This new English edition contains more material than the French one and updated rules. I strongly suggest this game to any RPG enthusiast.
