Do I need this book? The information in this book is also found in its entirety in the N.E.W. roleplaying game core rulebook. If you have that book, you do not need to buy this one. If you have a different WOIN core rulebook and wish to add space elements to it, or if you are building your WOIN ruleset piecemeal, then this book will be useful.
