    Hail TO ALL
    got not SUCH A new game to review for you dice apes!

    if you are into retro then take a look at Death stalkers 2 ed at overstock

    rpg!


    http://www.rpgoverstock.com/product_...ucts_id=31145&
    cost is 9.95 when I got my it was 7.50!



    "Discover a world of danger and peril where Demons stalk the shadows and

    the thunderous foot-falls of the Juggernauts echo in the distance. This

    Second Edition of Deathstalkers, the fantasy horror RPG, features a

    revolutionary new combat system, a huge buyer's guide, a complete magic

    encyclopedia containing over 250 spells, more than 17 playable character

    races, 26 different careers, and more!"


    now let not pretend for a minute this is one of the hiden greats!

    this game is retro more of what second edition DnD should have been game

    systems- or even palladium want to be! with that said it still don't make it

    a fun crunchy and munchy game!

    if you like old school stuff this game will hold some nice stuff for you!

    a world of battle and high magic with none of that girl y Romantic story

    telling stuff dripping from its seems.

    now I got my Book with the cover damaged but for 7.50 WAS NOT

    DISAPPOINTED I JUST GLUED IT BACK ON !

    this game got 30 classes and 20 races from half wolf,half cat, half dead to

    Dragons before the dragon born, it has Vampire hunters and Witch hunters

    and shape shifting Druids! 1999 thru 2002 now be careful these guys

    jumped on the OGL band wagon too so you well find DeathstalkerII out

    there too, and if that what you want fine.

    but this is for the retro fit guys and gals out there~!

    the abilities are knowledge,mental Tolerance,Leadership,Courage,

    STRENGTH,Endurance,Beauty,agility,speed,hitpoints.


    now I got to admit At first I was oh another one for the shelf but I actually

    find my self reading the thing in interest and wandering if this might be

    something my 16 YEAR OLD AND HIS FRIEND OR MY FRIENDs MIGHT WANT

    TO PLAY?

    its Classic levels and classes with tonnes of spells and a dark horror world

    that is or would have been different for me back in 1999 to 2002 <this is

    when they have their copyright> the game has some unique features such

    as aggression points that are used like move points. allowing the activation

    of racial abilities and spacial class skills.

    thier are tonnes of spells 250 of them to be matter of fact.

    now if you like hack master you well like this game.

    if you hate hack master you will not want to get this game.
    simple
    but for those few, who may have had been distracted or missed this game

    back in the early decade this is a nice rock and roll heavy metal type of

    game that well let you play Metallica in the background while you slay and

    die in this game!

    hey for those in the know Men at arms works better for this type of game!

    so this is a head up grab this little peace of retro want to be < much

    better then a clone any day> soon and you who hear the call of the

    pewter figs classing with monster pewter figs on a vinyle battle field know

    who this game is for and why, the rest of you plastic mini collects can go

    back to your normal programming!



    now for those of you still holding a pair <of dice> step up and ask your

    questions- I could gone into chapter by chapter detail but I well be

    honest, I am not that kind of reviewer!@ or writer!

    but if you post a question or two I well answer you the best I can - but

    please I can not answer or denie where I was on April the 19th 2009, nor

    do i fell you have the Fraggin right to ask me! oh wait that not happen yet...

    well Carrie on!

    Being an older edition fan, and the price being right, you can count me in on obtaining this edition. If for no other reason than curiosity.
