Rediscovered Book - The Complete Guide to Role-Playing Games by Rick Swan (published 1990)
It's amazing what a little emergency cleaning before the installation of Fios can dig up ;)
The Complete Guide to Role-Playing Games by Rick Swan was apparently an 88 cent pick up at Odd-Job (pretty sure that discount chain is defunct now).
Sweet cover art by Phil Foglio too.
Looking at some random reviews:
GURPS 4 stars (4 seems to be max)
Rolemaster 2 1/2 stars
Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes 3 1/2 stars
Role Aids 3 stars (wasn't this a line of supplements and modules for use with (A)D&D?
Tunnels & Trolls 3 stars
AD&D 4 stars
High Colonies 2 1/2 stars (never heard of it)
High Fantasy 1 1/2 stars (ouch - and never heard of it)
Supervillains 1 star (Bamn! Pow!)
Alright, I may have to alternate some pulls from this book with EGG's Role-playing Mastery for future postings...
