I had a quick look at it in the shop. It seemed quite dense text-wise, with plenty of historical research for the background. I wasn't impressed with the accuracy of the Celtic deities section, though I can't remember why. IIRC there is no real Robin Hood - the idea is that you go around having adventures which later form the basis for his legend. I may have seen a fairly standard 2d6 + abilities vs target system, but don't hold me to that.

Actually, it uses a roll-under-a-stat-on-a-d20 mechanic, with crits and the like similar to BRP. The armor/damage rules were a bit clunky for me.

Best pat is that for a game about Robin Hood, he doesnt actually exist.Instead the idea is that the legend of obin Hood is spawned by the actions of you PCs who play outlaws in Shewood Foest and Northen England.

If they ae viruous theives, stealing fom the rich and giving to the poo then the idea is that the bads and stoytellers just got their names wrong. But if they are complete bastados, then they had very good PR or paid people to make up those legends.

It reminded me about David Gemmels 'Morninsgstar' book where a vicious outlaw becomes popularised accidentally and when he tries to live up to his new reputation, finds redemption.

Thanks, SJE - I was fairly sure I remembered that.

I deduce that you have a problem with your R key. Unless you really are talking about "giving to the poo"? ;)

Reckon someone must have been spilling mocha on the keyboard.
