The Extraordinary Advetures of Baron Munchausen: A Role-Playing Game in a New Style
"Join the Baron as he journeys to the Moon and the Sun, rides cannon-balls, defeats the entire Turkish army with only a tame rabbit and a bottle of schnapps, meets gods, giants and heroes, and escapes from bandits on half a horse. The extraordinary stories of the legendary eighteenth-century nobleman come to life as players battle to outdo each other's fabulous feats and amazing accomplishments, stretching the bounds of truthfulness until they twang.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen contains a full set of rules, background, more than two hundred adventures ready to be played, a revolutionary system of mechanics that does away with dice or cards and uses money and fine wine instead, two combat systems ('duelling' and 'duelling for cowards'), quick-start rules and a great many insults against the inhabitants of various nations, but principally the French. This game can be learned in under five minutes, requires no GM or preparation, and takes about an hour to play. You will require pencil, paper, imagination, a manservant, money, a selection of fine wines, noble blood, a sense of flamboyance, and at least one attractive member of the opposite sex (optional).
How is all this possible? If Baron Munchausen's involved, anything is possible."

Barony Fantasy Role-Play
"Barony (Stock Number BG-FB / 1499) contains following three gaining pamphlets:
Conrad's Fantasy (Stock Number BG-FCF / 495) introduces concept of Free-Style Role-Play - building block system of game mechanics that allow Referee to create his own role-play game. Game will romanticize the players' prowess and allow them to rise from obscurity to lead the forces that control the "paper-worlds". Characters are easy to generate, but capable of complex interaction. Features Better Games' Quick and Dirty System for generating detailed combat against dragons.
Designing Fantasy Scenarios (Stock Number BG-FDS / 495) offers mission generation for adventures above surface and below in the underworlds. Endless missions can be quickly generated by flipping card-stock deck provided in the game. With Better Games' systems, Referee is never without an adventure. Referee can also detail sub-missions or motives specific players have for joining the group (when their characters seem out of place).
Encounters Fantasy Scenarios (Stock Number BG-FE / 595) offers two detailed settings for Travel Along Baronial Highways or Crossing the Dark Recesses of Underworlds, Not just one crypt, travel in Underworld becomes a world in scale as players cross series upon series of lairs and underground domains where creatures and cults thrive. Encounters flow by flipping card-stock deck provided in the game, so that the action never ends from one mission to the next. Referee is not left with the full burden of creating an adventure, both players and Referee can evolve the campaign through their gaming actions.
Dare we say it - Free-Style Role-Play by Better Games can take place with or without a Referee!"

"DragonRaid is an exciting experience in adventure Simulation. More than just a game, it offers hours of enjoyment while teaching participants to resist sin, counter deceptive arguments, memorize Scripture, and build moral and spiritual character.
The DragonRaid System encompasses many different adventures. On the mythical world of EdenAgain, players meet chal-lenges that parallel real life. The imagined dangers compel them to grapple with conflicting values, discover how faith in Christ can shape behavior, and reflect on what is really worth living and dying for.
DragonRaid differs significantly from many popular role-playing games, though it employs some of the same techniques. Created by NavPress author and Christian counselor Dick Wulf, its whole purpose is to give players deeper insight into spiritual truth and help them mature in their day-to-day relationships with non-Christians, with fellow believers, and with God Himself.
Join the fun and reap the rewards of this innovative discipleship tool! DragonRaid is ideally suited for men and women in their teen years, but will appeal to all ages 12 and up."

Hidden Kingdom: Classic Arthurian Roleplaying
... The game-world of HIDDEN KINGDOM is the world of King Arthur, ruler of Camelot and leader of the famous "Knights of the Round Table."
Unlike most fantasy-role-playing games, HIDDEN KINGDOM includes a list of over three hundred possible Character roles. It is not necessary for the player to have anything in common with the Character he or she plays. In fact, much of the excitement is generated by attempting to play Characters which are totally different from your own personality, beliefs and life situation etc.
Since the setting for HIDDEN KINGDOM is the world of King Arthur, all of the Characters have a basis in Classical Medieval Romance. As a player, you will be given some information about your Character. This information will serve as the broad limits for this Character. Your job will be to play the Character within these known limits, using your imagination to achieve an agreed-upon goal (or quest), and to provide missing aspects of your Character's personality. Your ultimate objectives in the game are dependent on the Character's "Alignment" ...
In HIDDEN KINGDOM, there are two general alignments: either Pagan (the world-view of the old order), or Christian (the new order). In addition to the two general alignments, each Character is further defined by a sub-alignment. If the Character is a Christian Character, he or she will be either a Renunciate or a Chivalrous Christian. If the Character is a Pagan Character, he or she will either be a Chivalrous or a Powerlord Pagan.
Set contains 337-page 3-ring binder; 2 color poster maps; Poster of relevant charts & tables; Character Sheets; errata sheet.

"Welcome to a world of grace and beauty, of breathtaking romance and dashing adventure. A fantasy world of swashbuckling, of dire magics and dazzling balls, where the royal court provides as much challenge to a player as the battlefields or the faerie forests.

Characters establish personalities, friendships and hatreds, fears and loves to make interpersonal relations a vital part of play. Rules for romance, repartee conflict, flirtation and fashion give players the unique opportunity to venture into courtly role play - a playing style where the ladies can truly come into their own. For the military minded, there are rules for massed battles and sea fights, deadly magic and duels."
