MAVERICK'S ROLE-PLAYING GAMES (RPG'S)

Role-Playing Games: The number one game responsible
for starting the RPG hobby was Dungeons and Dragons.
The simple concept expanded into a world-wide phenomenon.  
Although the first games concentrated on fantasy role-playing,
designers eventually expanded the field into almost any era 
and scenario imaginable.

This listing is comprised of mostly older or classic 
RPG materials.

Looking for games? I may have some of these for sale!
