Stan Shinn of RPGHacker takes on a classic…
And a great photo, to boot. :)
The City State was the first installment of Judges Guild’s huge campaign world. It is presented in JG’s typical style, with many short descriptions that can serve as adventure hooks and plenty of room to drop other adventures into the mix. It was introduced in 1976, has been updated and republished for newer editions several times, and deserves to be explored again and again.

Me: I feel like evil regimes shouldn’t kill off people and generate all these orphans. Don’t they know orphans invariably grow up to overthrow dictatorships?
Cleric: I don’t think that’s quite how it works.
Me: Sure it is. Haven’t you played Final Fantasy?
Cleric: Haven’t you seen Haiti?
DM: *to Cleric* CHARACTER POINT
(Character points are rewards that can be used to alter die rolls.)
well played gentlemen
I busted my foot a couple weeks ago and have been out of work sense. The result is 17 pages of maps to a ‘dungeon’ I had in my head and one hell of a game set up. I really want to run this now.
I will be IMMORTAL!!!!
From Lamentations of the Flame Princess, one of the most interesting retro-clones out there.
We Had a second run of the Critical Hit. Vili Turned into a sock puppet (and is still a huge Rush fan) and we fought a troll (that is represented by a big hydralisk, as that is the only large scale mini we have)
