Save For Half episode # 22: Aftermath! By FGU

ItÕs the Post-Apocalypse, and you are a lone survivor battling the radioactive wastes with a pistol, sneakers, and all the armor hit location #12 can hold! ThatÕs right, itÕs Aftermath by Fantasy Games Unlimited, and your Halflings delve into how the world ended in 1981!

Save For Half episode # 19: “Bullwinkle & Rocky RP Party Game by TSR"

It’s party time here in the Halfling Hideaway, and what's more of a party than a Party RPG? It says so, right on the box! Yes, it’s the Bullwinkle and Rocky Roleplaying Party game, from 1988. You demanded it (sorta), so we're here to bring it to you!

Can Boris really 'Kill Moose'? Does Sherman and his boy face weeping angels in the time vortex? Can Dudley Do-Right face off against Frost Giants? Ok, only one of those is correct; but you'll have to listen to find out which one!

No mooses were killed in the making of this episode, not even ones with rabbits coming out of his hat!

General Discussion / Prophets of White Dwarf?
« on: June 15, 2019, 12:29:39 PM »
The following is from the early 1981 issue of White Dwarf (#23).

Climbing out from underastack
of rulebooks, charts, tables,
scenarios, play-aids, dice and
figures led me to ponder the role
playing games of the future. How
long before role-playing game scenarios
are fed into home computers
with a visual display capable of
holographic effects?

Imagine, each of the players with a
hand controller watching their characters
walking down a dark corridor.
Around a bend and a party of vicious
goblins in glorious 3-D colour appear
on the screen. There would be no
arguments about who is standing
where or choice of opponent as the
computer urges its goblins with axes
swinging at the heads of your characters.
Players would be screaming
at each other, with sweat dripping
off their worried foreheads as fingers
dart over the hand controllers to
save their characters' lives.

We have the games, we will soon
have the technology, let's hope we
are around to have the chance. (White Dwarf #23, Feb/Mar 1981)

...sound familiar? Ok we dont' have 3D yet, but...?
