Damn I hate the typeface Papyrus.

Legends is very basic and definetly doesn't cover all the material in the same manner as the original rules they emulate but is very similar and does get the job done.
I prefer Heroes & Other Worlds myself, as it's a more complete game with (mostly) intelligent changes to the system. Of course it's not free, so the Dark City offerings may be a better choice for many.
which is why I included a link to HOW too.one could always check the basics of the system for free, and then expand their options if they so wanted.
Thanks. I think Dark City games was mentioned on another blog the other day and I've been totally into Legends on the Ancient World ever since. Looking to try their sci-fi version too.
I think I may have a copy of The Fantasy Trip in a box in the basement. It's worth something other than as a curiosity from my misspent youth?
Check out the prices on Amazon -- they usually represent a pretty good guess as to what the fair-market value is. You might do better or worse selling on E-bay and you would definitely do worse selling to someone like Noble Knight Games, but I suspect you'll be surprised at how much you can get for them if they're in reasonably good condition....
Finally a "clone" I might want.
