This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

"Chainmail" was a war game then "RPG Stuff" was tacked on because it was thought to be fun, spawning "D&D".
I think that for solo play 5P has enough RPG elements and as you can split the crew member to be run by players, role playing can be supported. Certainly there would be some handwaving but, no worse than people's "home brew" rules.

 No one played it as RPG? I did. That's split hair No1. Secondly, Dark Reign was a simple mistake by me. Split hair No2. Split hair No3 is to calm it down. If you want to lecture someone, well okay, but even then, you can't expect everyone to agree. In this case, I don't. Sorry. But I don't think it's a big deal. Nor should you.
