And they were pretty good overall. I would have loved them to have done well enough for a second series including the ABC warriors and Nikolai Dante cast.

I do actually have a few of the figures (bought second hand) but they didn't come with instructions - and I have a feeling they should have had cards with them, like the current Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog miniatures games - so have no idea how to play with them.  Nice figures though.

Sheridan - the 2000 AD character were in the 'indieclicks' set - I bought a few of these and got myself one of the rulebooks as well. I'll see if I can find that and look at scans. The powers were fairly generic though, in order to let the 2000 AD characters interact with the other universe too.

The only clik I never manged to get was a Judge Dredd. Crazy, I know.

It's on my TODO list to find copies of these. I still have Slaaughter Margin but my copy of the actual RPG went for a walk during Sixth Form, I think I must simply have left it at a friend's house.

The RPG is fairly easily available at not-too-silly prices on popular eAuction sites - though I'm currently concentrating on WOiN-based RPGs...

The Games Workshop games:
  • Judge Dredd the Role-Playing Game (box set / rulebook depending on edition, based on WFRP)
  • The Judge Dredd Companion (supplement)
  • Judgement Day (scenario)
  • Citi-Block (JD/W40k supplement)
  • Slaughter-Margin (scenario)
At some point I should go through all my copies of White Dwarf and compile a list of the JD articles that were featured (at least some of which were later reprinted in the Companion, above).

(taken from this rpg.net thread)

Last night (or was it really early this morning) I got around to combing the 2000AD RPGs era of White Dwarf that I have and came up with the following.

2000ADopedia (as it was the easiest place I could think of to put all the info that I could easily edit at a later date).

A quick glance suggests three of the things that first appeared in White Dwarf were later repackaged for the Companion (upthread) - counting that epic adventure as 'one thing'.

I think only the Something Special article made it into the Companion for certain (a collection of largely useless Special Abilities) and maybe the Crazy Files (I don't have that WD so they could be a different selection of Crazy Files) - the epic adventure 'To Live and Die in Mega-City One' (which I've played, but never read) was completely different to 'Fear and Loathing in Mega-City One' (which I've read but never played, and consists of absolutely massive amounts of background material that the Players have no way of finding out without a massive infodump shoehorned in somewhere...)
The wages of sin are death, but the hours are good and the perks are fantastic.

Anybody here played any 2000AD RPG games, either in person (before lockdown, or after if you have willing housemates) or over t'internet?  I'm presuming play by mail is now play by email in all cases.
