There's an old 1st edition beastmaster class from Dragon... I'll see if I can find it when I get home from work. Don't know if its any good, but it certainly looked cool back in '83 when I was twelve.

<t>I usually lean toward print for the rulebooks and PDFs for the modules. Rules in print seem 'official' to my crazy mind while not so official in PDF form.

An interesting game, kind of a combination between poker and dice.

I'm a little unsure of what constitutes a winning game when there are a mix of 'runes'. Is it like poker?
