I never did get my hands on the original version of Dreams of the First Age. They really need to mark this as 'Revised' to get the point across that this is not, in fact, said original.
Now that I've gotten that tidbit out of the way, I must admit with great delight that this purchase, combined with Return of the Scarlet Empress, made the end of my summer vacation worth all the wait for the releases. The folks freelancing for White Wolf outdid themselves in both the quality of the Charms in this revision, and for the original work done when Dreams first came out.
It is a must-have for anyone with any sort of interest in the First Age.
