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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

I remember the ads inside comic covers.  The game sounded stupid but I always wanted the parchment maps.  Of course I'm the guy who printed out his pdfs of Arms Law and Spell Law on parchment and four page character sheets and everything.  Must be a fetish.

Yes, MMM made a big deal out of claiming it was a "historical" RPG.

That was it's entire marketing pitch.

You could make a party with an Egyptian princess, a Roman legionnaire and a Jewish rabbi and plunder dungeons underneath the Gardens of Babylon.

You forgot the leprechauns.
