Unearthed, But Best Forgotten? Castle Perilous from West Wind Simulations (1980)
My God! I rediscovered this earlier today. I remember the cover, but the contents I don't recall at all. Copyright 1980, this is one heck of a Fantasy Heartbreaker. At this point in my life, I don't think I could get myself to read it even if it was food for the blog.
15 of it's 70 pages are devoted to a short story, which means the rules fit into 55. But that's okay, as the author mentions they have books II to X awaiting printing and production. Somehow I don't think I'd be able to track those down even if I wanted to.
It just uses 3D6 for combat resolution. I can see some D&Disms in it as I flip around, but the system does seem fairly unique. It's just that I'm much less into charts at this stage in my life then when I came into this hobby 30 odd years ago.
