5.0 out of 5 stars Your chance to own the greatest RPG of all time, 10 Aug 2009
This review is from: Dragon Warriors: The Classic British Fantasy Roleplaying Game (Hardcover)
I suppose only role-players will be interested in this review, but this is an absolutely cracking game. In some ways the rules show their age, but my group have been playing Dragon Warriors again after all these years and actually they stand up very well.
The real advantage of Dragon Warriors, though, is the background. Dave Morris and Oliver Johnson are brilliant, creative writers and the background is truly evocative and very spooky. You won't get a better execution of a traditional fantasy RPG.

For those who have the originals, this is a well-presented, well-organised repackaging of all the rules (but not monsters or scenarios). There is a great new scenario by Frazer Payne - really in line with the spirit of DW - and my only complaint is that the one tiny rules tweak I could find (giving Elementalists an extra power) is totally broken. But you just need to recognise that and tone it down in your house rules - no big problem.
