I am a bit startled at how fun it is to read. I never read gaming books. To me they are for reference, but Uresia is pretty compelling, and quite well thought out. When game mechanics are discussed, I am a tad lost, but I do know BESM is a point-buy character game with reportedly simple mechanics, so things were not completely unusual.
Ross has apparently bought the rights to the game, originally published by Guardians of Order, then on to ArtHaus Games, and eventually White Wolf Games... When I looked at their website, White Wolf appears to have completely discontinued BESM. Ross is apparently working on a system-neutral world-book based on the original Uresia.

I am looking forward to the system-neutral book, and have already been thinking about trying to play a Uresian game, either in BESM or converted for some form of D&D. If you can get a hold of this, it is awfully interesting.
