  1. Well done dirk and co, am intrigued by D&D 5e, and a lover of glorantha and RQ… A torn punter..

    1. If I was playing … I’d struggle to choose to be honest. I have a lot of affection for GANGBUSTERS because we played it so much back in the day. I’d like to play BOOT HILL because I love Westerns and have never played it … same goes for STAR WARS.
