I first encountered this setting in the game Chains of Satinav by Daedalic Entertainment, and I mostly picked up the Corebook on a whim--and I'm so glad I did! This has quickly become one of my favorite RPGs. The learning curve is slightly steep, but I find the rules to be quite elegant. Character creation is unfortunately quite complex and comprises the biggest obstacle, but in play the rules are straightforward. I appreciate that this system has enough "crunch" to allow for a lot of character customization but is straightforward enough to not get in the way of the storytelling. I can see why this is the number one RPG in Germany; I'd call it far superior to DnD in both rules and setting.
