I like it. In fact, I like it a lot. I thought the old Fantasy, 2nd
edition was pretty bland, but Banestorm has made Yrth much more
interesting, IMO. It's still fairly 'generic' fantasy, with a bit of
everything, but I think it's a very well done example of the type, and
some attempt has been made to make all the silly things fit together.

The book is also chock-full of things that say "this would be a really
cool adventure". So much so that the question is not "what can I do with
this setting?", but "what should I do first?"

I was slowly designing a new fantasy world for my next GURPS game, but
now I think I'll just use Banestorm.
