ROLF seems fairly good for the price (£0.95).

While most RPGs I've played make no bias on gender with attributes, this game does (surprisingly). The 3 attributes are Brawn, Body & Brains. Brawn & Body are the same for male & female, but Brains are 2D4 for males, and 2D6 for females! The character generation on page 2 states that females are more intelligent (gender cliche?); if so, then another gender cliche states that females are the 'weaker sex', and therefore (for balance), as all games should have SOME balance, the Brawn attribute for females should be for example, 1D20 + 1D8, instead of 2D20.

Practically most/all the artwork is from various D&D books (Elmore). The game is not to be taken seriously; it it rather tongue in cheek. It's good for short term, but not for long term (campaigns).

[3 of 5 Stars!]
