the running man


"I am now imagining the borderland villages and destitute nations of the Generic Fantasy Empire that are populated by all those characters whose stats did suck so mightily that none did wish to play them, and now nurse their wounded spirits in a kind of pissy limbo, hoping only that one day, a lone and unsuspecting Player Character will enter their realm, and the Discarded Ones shall play Pile On the Fancypants with the 16 Wisdom."
—John M. Ford, on the Pyramid boards
