Elves & Espers: The Concept

Elves & Espers was inspired by some of Jeff Rients’ posts on Encounter Critical and other “faux retro” games, and is my take on “What if D&D had been an SF game instead of fantasy?”   There would be Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, and all that Tolkein stuff, but instead of going into dungeons armed with swords […]
