Buried somewhere under the copies of White Dwarf and signed AD&D Monster Manuals, past the cloth map of the Sword Coast and sketches of Zork dungeons lies Serpent in the Staglands [official site]. It's party-based RPGing in the mold of all your favourites, and I first came across it when one of you fine readers recommended it as a…
