Challenger: Roleplaying Game Core Rules
By
Price: Free! Words: 124,120. Language: English. Published: September 14, 2011. Category: Nonfiction » Entertainment » Games, puzzles and brain twisters
A new Challenger is here... This is a pen and paper tabletop roleplaying game, not a computer game. If you're looking for one of those, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere. I highly recommend the dungeon-crawling German rogue-like "Lost Labyrinth" which is free to download and a purely awesome game. If you're interested in the RPG, you've come to the right place.
