Fantasy Gaming: A Guide to Fantasy Role Play and Table-Top Battles
For the first time, renowned gaming expert Martin Hackett brings together fantasy role-playing and fantasy wargaming. The result is a complete gaming system, allowing experienced or novice players to explore a fictional world in character by taking part in adventures and going on to lead armies into battle, conquer territory and found empires. Fantasy role playing took off in the late 1970s with the rise of TSR's Dungeons and Dragons. Fantasy wargaming, by contrast, is the clash of two or more mythical armies, played out with miniatures and scenery on a tabletop battlefield.
