Description Edit | History

In this issue:

Welcome to a whole new year of PTGPTB, and our sixteenth issue. Sweet sixteen and never been linked on the Daily Illuminator. Such is life. Meanwhile, this is issue we have another stab at reviews - a chance for us to pay back all the nice people who send us stuff. Sarah leads off, investigating the shadowy world of Conspiracy X, and then Rotwang takes a swing at the new Star Wars. Batting clean-up is a look at setting design, and a question about the role of competition in RPGs. It's not always pretty, but it sure is entertaining. Check it out. Ed.
