When I was a lad, we didn’t have 500+page RPG books

Those young uns with their 500+ pages of setting info and character options. Back in the 80s we had 100 + page rule books, with 23 pages of system, five pages of setting info scattered in high-light boxes throughout the text (WITH A TIMELINE!), ten monsters and WE MADE SHIT UP AND LOVED IT! 🤣

Warning! Contains RuneQuest 2 from the dawn of Role Playing and mention of Stranger Things Era Geekry.

RuneQuest 2 cover

Short concise rules, setting punchy and yet invocative, oh how we loved you RQ2
