Amber Diceless Roleplaying Game

Erick Wujcik . . . creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles roleplaying game and the Amber Diceless RPG, died June 7. (via  Steve Jackson Games, Palladium press release)

Of the games in my collection, Palladium holds the pride of the pack.  Two of my all time favourite series are Wujicik creations, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® RPG, and Ninjas & Superspies™.  The spiritual heart of my office at ANU has two drawers full of RPG manuals bought off eBay to replace the ones I lost, gave away or lent with no intent of retrieving.   When you open the drawer, the name Wujcik leaps up from the files, enticing you into a world of mutant animals, complex tables, and copious hours of scheming, plotting and dice rolling… and that’s just creating a character before you start playing.

Thank you Erick.
