Description: Only a few individuals really stand out in all of history. People who ruled the known world. People who changed the known world. People you would like to have known. People you'd pray to avoid. This book makes it easy to introduce dozens of these stand-outs into your campaign, providing descriptions and statistics for 52 of history's most intriguing people. It also provides a cornucopia of adventure seeds that are stranger than fiction. From the real Dread Pirate Roberts to a roistering aristocratic astronomer sporting a silver nose, from a doctor so brilliant that his foes ran him out of town to a king with 1,200 wives but no heir -- every writeup offers enough inspiration to launch its own campaign. Each one also offers alternative "What if?" scenarios for time-traveling or fantastic settings. Drawn from every continent and 3,500 years of history, this book offers something for every area of interest. Designed for the GURPS system, but contains plenty of information that can be adapted to many other role-playing games. Copyright 1999 Steve Jackson Games. First printing. 128 pages. OOP.
