No worries. Another great source of second hand stuff is Subito.it. you can localise it to where you're going. Here is some DD stuff in Rome:

I wish you had written this a few weeks ago, I had a few issues knocking about in the garage but I left them recently at a book crossing. I think I might still have n. 143 entitled Apocalisse, I'll have a look when I can. I've lived in Italy for about 15 years and I bought them, like you, to practise reading the language.

If you like, there is a flea market in my town once a month where they sell lots of second hand copies, as well as a few second hand shops. Are there any particular issues you would like? I could get them for you directly. TBH, though, if you're coming here twice a year, it might not be worth your while me posting them to the UK. With the P&P it would be like you buying them new when you visit. Let me know what you think.

Have you tried other Italian titles like Martin Mystère and Nathan Never?

There's no way I can afford that plus shipping right now but thanks for highlighting the game because the artwork is right up my street. I've spent ages staring at the prints on sale in his online shop. I can't get enough of it. It's like Fighting Fantasy, White Zombie album art, old Spectrum game covers. Think I could stretch to a couple of posters taken from the game's quest books.

Sorry, second attempt at the link because I couldn't edit.

Saw this on The Quietus, thought I'd share it:

Who directed 2012's Dredd? Was it, as star Karl Urban recently suggested, really Alex Garland? What does it matter? And what do the differences with 1995's Judge Dredd tells us about the future of the comic adaptation?


Announcements / Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth card game

Surprised no-one's picked up on this here yet, unless I missed it. Looking forward to there being a JD game that is neither miniature-based nor RPG so I can play it with family members. The upcoming Block War card game looks like it will be a lot of fun but it's only for two players, whereas this is for more. Also, the artwork isn't pilfered from past publications, it's specially commissioned. Based on a game I've never heard of called The Lost Expedition.

Here's a couple of links:



There's lots of Dredd in the pipeline for tabletop gamers at the moment.

I really enjoyed Dead of Winter as it turned out I was a traitor whose objective was to secretly prevent the community from surviving while pretending all the while that I was collaborating. I'm useless at lying and always burst out in fits of giggles but the great enjoyment came from everyone angrily blaming another player for dumping petrol and medicine in the food supply, then exiling him when he was totally innocent. His protests just reinforced their accusations and they just thought I was giggling at that.

It's quite a bleak scenario, though, for an evening's entertainment but it doesn't drag on.

Thanks for that tidbit, which contains when it will be released: this winter. Not long, then.

I have it in my hands, it really is mini. I can't wait to plug it in tonight but first impressions are that it looks great, aesthetically.

P.S. I hate innuendo.

No news of how far along this is developed that I can find, but here is one of the developers talking about a recent meeting in April 2017 so there may be some time to wait yet.

We did but my character, a disturbed WWI veteran with alcoholism as a character disadvantage, ended up in the pub getting wasted after failed dice rolls testing my will.

No apologies needed, it just heightened the enthusiasm. Will any of you be getting the new 2000 AD RPG material or would be a case of learning yet another system?

I like the fact the first book will be self-contained.

I would never have imagined how much in-depth reference material was required for this. The only core books available where I live for the characters I'm interested in are based on Traveller. It might be worth waiting for the new 2000 AD RPGs to come out and see how they are received before committing the time to understand it well enough to play.

I would need to understand it in detail to convince the gaming group it was worth it. These are people who spent 10 mins in character bickering about whether it was better to visit the Land Registry or Civic Library first during Call of Cthulu.

Thanks, guys, for all this information. That's loads to be getting started with. A bit daunting, even, but don't take that as a complaint.

And thanks, Theblazeuk. Without having looked at it yet I was wondering whether all the open source material meant it wasn't strictly necessary to have any specific Dredd/SD source book since all the material/background for a scenario can be gleaned from the comics.

After reading your conversion tips I'm thinking the GURPS system that the GamesMaster already knows could be used to accommodate a Dredd scenario of my own making. Otherwise the players would have to learn another set of rules.

Seems like there's tons of ways to do it without having to fork out too much.
