Depsite the auction title, it's not D&D.



According the Darkshire.Net ( http://www.darkshire.net/~jhkim/rpg/ )



. . . Chosen

. . . 1st ed by Aaron Rosenberg (2001) Clockwork Games

. . . A science fantasy RPG about a far-flung future where the PC's are people imbued with the spiritual powers of the archetypal Beasts -- dragons, gryphons, manticores, etc. -- who fight evil conspiratorial Wizards.

The company's website ( http://www.clockworksgames.com/ ) doesn't seem to have anything but a sparse greeting page and one of those strange mouse-trail applets.

you're right... i found in wikipedia all the references to this product line...
prob i wrongly wrote the question: after reading all the descriptions about it, i still miss why is so appreciated... if you look to the publisher website you can still buy products of this rpg, for roughly 10 USD a piece! ...but from times to time on ebay i can see that the same (i suppose) items are sold for much more... that's the point!

Aia,

I have not played or ran Morrow Project for many years, but they have gone through a number of printings over the years, and like most game companies had their struggles to survive.

They have not released any new products of note for quite a while now but some of their first printings from the early 1980's are collectible.

A brief description of the setting would be post-holocaust. Morrow was the NPC who set up the project to freeze teams that were trained to rebuild society after the third world war. Something happened at Prime Base and the awake signal did not go out to the bunkers until many years after it was supposed to. The groups were awakened to a degenerated world with small enclaves of survivors practicing subsistence farming. Radioactive wastelands where cities once stood, bands of brigands and areas claimed by warlords.

The Morrow Project had three branches:
Combat teams (MARS)
Recon teams
Science teams

Depending on which type of team the module called for your characters would have different vehicle types and equipment.

For long campaigns (such as the one that I ran from about 1984 to 1986) the game master could control the setting to make it either a grim 'road warrior" style of game or a "Gamma World" style with mutants and special powers, etc. (mine was the grim style)  :twisted:

I would suggest that if you are interested in some of the items like this that you are not familiar with, that you use the eBay advanced search and look up the items under completed listings. It should give you a feel for what the going prices are for some of the items.

I didn't know the Morrow Project was still being published!  Whoa!



I once read that Fantasy Games Unlimited (FGU) was still selling its old stock of games, but that was a few years ago.
