This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we crack the cover of Bruce Galloway’s Fantasy Wargaming (1981), one of several games of the period attempting to make a more realistic (and therefore more complicated) version of Dungeons & Dragons. We chat about the mysterious, never released Leigh Cliffs adventure scenario for Fantasy Wargaming and we puzzle over the provided statistics for Moses, the Virgin Mary and the big cheese, God Himself.

Mike Monaco is also fascinated by Fantasy Wargaming and wrote a book on it; “The Highest Level of All” in which he unearths the full story of Fantasy Wargaming and explores the personalities behind the game as well as its influence on playing historic fantasy.
