C. W. Richeson gave Grey ranks a thorough and very positive review over at rpg.net. But even the most positive review can’t be perfect:
“My only gripe is that the book has an awful lot of white space. While initially the extensive sidebars cover this up, later on there are times where only half of the page is being used. Despite that flaw, there’s still plenty of material here.”
And that’s a minor thing, really, but it’s funny how hard we tried to prevent that appearance. The 6×9 format, with marginalia, is a beast to work with. We thought about abandoning marginalia at one point, but decided against it. As a result there are pages that are emptier than others. The alternative would have been to interrupt the flow with call-out boxes or something, and we didn’t want that.
