Originally released for Apple IIgs and ported to numerous systems, The Immortal is a fiendishly difficult, but incredibly rewarding experience. Though short in length (it can […]
The POINT of Forging the Narrative is sort of like roleplaying; except you are both the Gamesmaters writing your own story. It is about having fun, and fun is something that hasn't been associated in social Warhammer play for years.
