Default Mongoose Behind the Claw

Interested to hear views from anyone who has picked this up as I am swithering. 27 quid is a lot to splash on a pdf. Especially as I already have the 1st Mongoose Ed Spinward Marches and Deneb books (as well as versions of the Marches in other editions). The blurb says there is loads of new stuff in this version but... really?

Oh, yeah - we added a lot

Deneb is completely re-written, the Marches completely re-edited, and we took absolutely every opportunity to add gaming info - so there are loads of new ships, creatures, playable alien races, and oodles more!

You mentioned new creatures...Are there any "official" write ups for "canon" creatures like the kian?

Well, they are all canon in this book - but if you are talking about things that have appeared in previous books, yes. Including the Kian
