The content of the book is excellent and a useful addition to Planescape. The print itself suffers from some of the same issues that other scans from Planescape have, as well as Dark Sun. The colour balance and scan leaves some of the non-black text looking quite faded. Still perfectly useable and considering the cost of print on demand books versus buying used out of print, at least I'm not getting stiffed on book condition.

Good book, but the scan is a bit light. Still readable, but you might have trouble on certain devices.

The Factol's Manifesto is a great book expanding upon the main factions of the basic setting. It includes information on the leaders and abilities of the factions (new abilities gained as you move up in a faction) as well as their base of operations and ways of roleplaying a member. Additionally, each faction has a rumours section which can be used as a jump start to further adventures and all in all, the information contained is excellent.

However, the scan does need to be redone. Although readable, it is somewhat pixelated in some places. Some of the pages scanned in show the edge of the page as it was torn out of the original book which can be a little distracting, since this is a scan though it is understandable that it was going to look perfect.

All in all, I would recommend this product if you want more information on the main factions and can see your way past the imperfections of the scan.

Basically, this is the splatbook for <I>Planescape</I> -- the only TSR setting really complicated enough to need them. It has chapters on each of the main factions, detailing their factols, explaining their philosophies, describing their headquarters and giving some adventure seeds. The writing is the usual for Planescape (cynical and sparkly, and it still sounds WEIRD hearing educated people like Factol Terrance speaking the stupid cant).<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: If you run factioneer PCs, you're going to need this book. The descriptions in the Player's Guide to the Planes are wholly inadequate, but the Manifesto explains what these philosophies are really ABOUT and why they're worthy of faction status. It's close to mandatory.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: As with all Planescape books, the constant inappropriate use of slang is ANNOYING. Also, while most other factions' philosophies are made to seem cogent, if not actually attractive, there's still not much to recommend Dustmen as PCs. There's also a bit much metaplot -- I'm sorely tempted to replace Pentar and Nilesia with new NPCs of my own creation to make it easier to take the story in new directions.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

An absolute must have for any DM running a campaign in Sigil. The factions are part of what makes the city of doors so interesting in the first place and the small overview of each faction in the main box set only had enough info to pique your interest. This book provides a backstory for each faction as well as rumors surrounding their activites which characters might hear about. It also provides information on each faction for the DM's eyes only. All in all, a great book that can't be beat for the price.
