When President Ulysses S. Grant formed the Department of Justice in 1870, he made special provision for a bar of review regarding the new pass-time sweeping across the land: role-playing games. This bar was meant to establish a standard of quality to ensure that “neckbeards, dorks, geeks, quiet bookish girls, and Guys Who Are Way Into Anime, If You Know What I Mean” were not adversely affected by poorly drafted rule sets and incomprehensible lore dumps. In a nation still attempting to heal from the wounds of the Civil War, it was sadly necessary. Today, the RPG Review Board continues that proud tradition. Gamers can rely on the Board’s judgments, knowing that any game recommended by that august body has passed rigorous standards of fun-evaluation and only the most exacting tests for rules balance and accuracy.
