Brought to you by Steve Jackson and John Kovalic, this set features four Classes -- including the Cultist -- and a lot of classic monsters from outside reality. And they all have Stuff you can take from their twitching bodies.

My first game convention was Origins '78! I have been to a couple cons in Flint since then. Maybe next year I would love to return.

Origins was my first gaming convention as well but it was the 1989 one that was held in Los Angeles.
