Game-A-Week: Arcana Evolved

I've covered Dungeons and Dragons as well as Iron Heroes. So now we get to Arcana Evolved. Which in a way is the opposite of Iron Heroes in that where Iron Heroes makes magic rare, Arcana Evolved makes it more prominent.

Arcana Evolved (High Fantasy)- An enhanced “director's cut” of Dungeons and Dragons. This is Monte Cook's take on what he wanted to do to Dungeons and Dragons. High magic, quite the opposite of Iron Heroes.
Campaign: Players will become involved in a fight to save the day from hordes of enemies and their masters.

We've used parts of this game in past adventures. Picking up items and classes as part of our standard dungeons and dragons game. Of course the things from the book were rewards from me to the players for story reasons, rather than taking them for power gaming reasons.
Playing the game straight out of the book might be fun too. I know some parts of it are based off of one of my favorite books Lord Foul's Bane.
