Ships to Only Canada. What it does have is a system that really works well. Rpgg core book is near completion, but many of our sourcebooks and adventures will require additional writing and design.

It had an alternate history, which is usually the kiss of death. Damage depends on the weapon used, and damage dice are “penetrative”, so that if you rolled maximum damage, you roll again and add. The perfect gift for a gamer that needs to explain an expensive Kickstarter! A very ingenious do-it-yourself wheel to keep track of the current aes in your games.
