You don’t know Doctor Who?
Part One of TIME LORD contains a brief history of the world’s longest-running television science fiction series, and an abridged short story that demonstrates the unique appeal of Doctor Who.
You’ve never heard of role-playing games?
Part Two of TIME LORD introduces you to the concepts behind this fascinating and incresingly popular hobby, and contains a complete mini-adventure for one player that leads you effortlessly through the basic rules of the TIME LORD system.
Devised by two experts in both the Doctor Who television series and role-playing games, TIME LORD is built round just one basic rule and is therefore one of the easiest of role-playing games to learn. Complete beginners can start playing almost immediately. The open-ended nature of the game system, onthe other hand, and the richness of the Doctor Who heritage allow for the creation of fiendishly complicated and challenging games.
In addition to the introductory chapters and the rules of the game. TIME LORD contains an encyclopedia of Doctor Who information – details of the Doctors, their companions and opponents, Gallifreyan technology, and the TARDIS – as well as a complete ready-made adventure, advice about creating your own original adventures, and appendices covering advanced topics.
