Description Edit | History

Cover art: A nearly indestructible GAMMA WORLD game Aquabot descends on the unsuspecting mutated inhabitants of the main city of the Radioactivists, by Roger Raupp. (from the contents page)

This issue featured The 384th Incarnation of Bigby's Tomb by Frank Mentzer - A "new" module created for the AD&D game tournament at the 1984 Winter Fantasy mini-convention.
