Hmmm. Entire threads have been devoted to Palladium's issues. And as somebody that's had a lot of experience with that system, I wouldn't say it's unplayable. Difficult, yes. Relying on a lot of off-the-cuff calls and house ruling, yes. Painful and nonsensical at times? Absolutely.It's only my opinion, but in the 1980s a friend bought the Palladium fantasy RPG, and we wasted an entire Saturday trying to create characters. We gave up and since then Palladium has been anathema.
