Judge DreddDunkles SciFi-Setting in dem die Judges (engl. Richter) die ultimative Gerechtigkeit vertreten - sozusagen Polizei-Kampfmaschine und Schnellgericht in einem. War mal ein kurzer Versuch; ist aber über die Testphase nie hinausgekommen. Das System konnte die Chararktere nicht im Zaum halten. Zu viel Blutvergießen! Versuch halte ich allerdings für untertrieben. Die haben eine ganze Spielreihe dazu rausgegeben. (BlockMania gehört auch in das JD Universum). Muss man wohl als gescheitert betrachten. JD ist eins der GW-oop Spiele; die billig zu haben sind. Dank an Marco Mensen

Judge Dredd - The Role-Playing Game casts you in the role of a Judge of Mega-City One¸ as popularized in the pages of the 2000 AD comic. The players stalk its deadly streets¸ patrol the Meg-Ways and Underzooms on their Lawmaster bikes¸ on the lookout for dangerous perps to arrest.
This volume includes everything you need to create Player Character Judges¸ rigged out with all the necessary skills and equipment for patrolling the city and apprehending criminals¸ plus details on setting up and running adventures¸ together with rules for equipment¸ weapons¸ aliens¸ mutants and robots -- in short¸ everything you need to create hundreds of crime-fighting adventures in Mega-City One.
The Judge Dredd comics appeared in the 2000AD magazine and featured a post-nuclear world where civilization is packed together in Mega Cities. These cities cover several states and are populated by millions¸ 'every one of them a potential criminal'. For various 'historical' reasons the Judges¸ a police force with the combined authority of Cop¸ Prosecutor¸ Judge¸ and Jury (and sometimes Executioner)¸ handle the law in the Mega Cities. The toughest and fairest of them is Judge Dredd. If you know the comics¸ nothing more needs to be said. If you have seen the movie you get a pretty good idea of life in and around MC1 (although the movie takes some drastic liberties with the original comics). Once upon a time Games Workshop published Role-playing Games. Judge Dredd - The Role-Playing Game was one of them. It was published in 1985 and spawned two official scenarios - Judgement Day and Slaughter Margin - and a Companion volume. There were also regular articles and scenarios in White Dwarf. GW also produced an official line of Judge Dredd miniatures.
