Fair enough. I'm not familiar with those at all. I have a lot of D&D
source material (granted, it's all 1st or 2nd edition AD&D) though
and at least judging by that I am wholly unimpressed by its ability
to deal with group vs. group interaction, particularly competitive
group vs. group interaction.
