comics by elimination

Someone on an old-school role-playing game tumblr has compiled a bunch of computer-screen illustrations from a 48-page RPG supplement written by John M. Ford in 1985 into a pretty succinct, accurately predictive comic.

(Amongst many other things, Ford also wrote two Star Trek novels in the ’80s. One, from 1984, was a serious worldbuilder about Klingons using RPGs to train children in battle strategising. The other, in 1987, was a musical comedy featuring Neil Gaiman as a singing alien sorcerer.)
