Thirty plus years ago I was a huge fan of The Fantasy Trip and associated adventures. I loved playing them as well being the GM. The other day I came across an iPad app called Hex Map Pro that would have supported TFT perfectly. This got me reminiscing. Talking to some folks at work, there seemed to be interest is starting an old school paper and pencil RPG gaming club. I don't think anyone has the time to invest in D&D anymore, so I recommended TFT. I have one set of booklets and they are still in pretty good shape, but I am not really willing to pass them around to get torn up. I did a google search to see if the rules were posted online or available for purchase and was surprised that others had the same passion as I did. This lead me to you all... So far your site is bringing back a whole lot of memories, well done!
Is anyone using Hex Map Pro to support there gaming experience? If so, I would be interested in any suggestions. This weekend I will download one of your samples and try it on my own. I will let you know how it turns out.

First, welcome to the boards! Hope you poke around a bit.
Second - there are a lot of guys (and a few gals) like us, with a passion for pencil and paper rpgs with the more simple rules. Glad you tracked us down. Hope you like the freebies on the main website. Whether you like them or not, please feel free to comment on them. Before or after, you might be interested in the comments of some people who have played them.
Our LAW is greatly simplified from TFT, but our adventures will work with TFT fine, with just a little bit of conversion/winging it.
Hex Map Pro - I haven't messed around with it. I don't have an Ipad, but it might be more widely available. Most of my LAW gaming is done with miniatures on Heroscape tiles - there are a few pix in the Miniatures forum. For our adventure Maps, I am pretty sure George is using Campaign Cartographer; but he may have changed that in the last year or so. I'll try to find out more about Hex Map Pro - thanks for the heads up!
