    Completed CYOA - Mysterious Caves

    It is windy and cold in early winter. You stand on top of a large boulder, in front of a mouth-like cavern entrance. The local guide who brought you here, from a nearby gathering place, was explaining the fame of these caves to you as you walked through snowy plains and the base of a hill.

  15. Why are Gun based RPGs so much more rare then the sword rpg's

    I don't think it is a huge leap of a conclusion to make when stating that there are more Fantasy sword RPGs then ones where guns are the main weapon of choice. Why is this? What makes gun based worlds so much less of a persuasive option when creating choice and roleplaying based worlds?
