This issue features a real mixed bag of divergent stuff. Conspiracies. NPCs. Subculture examinations. And competitive roleplaying. Plus a look at where RPGs really began in Once Upon A Time. If you can see what it all means, be sure to let us know. Merry Christmas, see you next year - and don't miss our new competition below! Ed.
