Back in the early 1990s, Joe Williams was writing paper and pencil roleplaying games for a small publisher called Marquee Press. In a Marquee Press game, the gamemaster almost never rolls dice. The players roll to resist or influence the game world, and the gamemaster interprets the results of their rolls. This puts the focus of the game on the players and their abilities, while freeing the gamemaster to concentrate on narrating what happens. One talented storyteller could entertain an entire group of casual players. Not everyone needed to be a gifted actor. The games fostered a friendly, playful mood at a time when many other games were striving to be dark and profound. Responding to frequent fan requests, Joe Williams is pleased to make these games available again in print. Or visit to download the PDFs for free!
