I don' t know why I didn't read this message imediately (maybe because it
is waiting in the maibox with 268 more), but I thank you for the letter,
and I think I will try a major reshaping of some other RPG, like D&D (I had
altready made a steam engine era version of this one), or maybe GURPS.
I never read GURPS or Rifts rules so I would ask for comments from anyone.
I know this is not related to Epic, so if you think it isn' t relevant to
the list just send them to:
If you do this, please add (EPIC) to the subject, so it will be easier to
separate my messages from the other ones. (We subscribed three different
mailing lists...)
Thanks in advance
