A basic pulp adventure RPG published by TSR in Dragon magazine issue 47.
The special 24 page pull-out section was entitled "Crimefighters: Role-playing rules for pulp heroes & The Case of the Editor's Envelope, a sample Crimefighters scenario."
Crimefighters is a game where players take the roles of heroes, agents, detectives, and adventurers attempting to stop nefarious criminal masterminds and destroy their rackets and plans. Such characters and situations are modeled after the famous personalities of the pulp novels and comics — Doc Savage, the Shadow, Agent X-9, and others. The times depicted range roughly from the late 1920’s through the 1940’s. However, the actual historical conditions of this period have been played down in favor of the atmosphere presented in the pulp novels.
