drystan's Thoughts:

I really don't know how many RPGs I have played. From the most famed (D&D, the World of Darkness series, Warhammer Fantasy RPG, Cyberpunk...) to the more bizarre (like a trash-thing called All Flesh Must Be Eaten - that is, a zombie-oriented RPG). Then, thanks to Demian's Gamebook page, I managed to buy an old copy of the FF RPG, along with some expansions and adventures.

How nice! The rules are extremely simple, yet excellent ones which let you roleplay instead of throwing dice and/or consulting charts and tables (anybody who has ever played Rolemaster is aware of what I'm talking about).

This RPG is simply excellent! Its expansions and adventures are amusing and well-written. In my (weird?) opinion, FF RPG is the best RPG I have ever come to play.
