44: Judge Dredd Role Playing Game


Matt Sharp makes a successful D20 roll to get into the book club and guide me through the intricacies of the Dredd role playing game. He describes the gaming system, and a variety of adventures he has taken part in and run as the games-master. He also talks about some great 2000AD stories which provided background information for his group of 2000AD newbies.
