Welcome to Mega-City One, a city of over four hundred million people and everyone of them a potential criminal.Stretching the length of the 22nd century American eastern seaboard, Mega-City One is the most dangerous city on Earth, for it is calculated that one serious crime takes place every second of every day.So dangerous, it demands a special breed of law enforcer. Here, there are no police, no trials and no juries – only the judges. It takes fifteen years to train a judge for life on the streets of Mega-City One. Fifteen years of iron discipline, rigid self-control and concentrated aggression.Toughest of all judges is Joe Dredd, a man vested with the power of instant justice, a man whose court is the streets and whose word is the Law!The Judge Dredd role-playing game allows players to take the role of either judges patrolling the streets in a desperate attempt to maintain Law and order, or as perps, lawbreakers determined to buck the authority of thejudges and set up their own criminal organisations. By playing the Judge Dredd role-playing game, you can create a character who lives both in the sprawling megalopolis of Mega-City One as well as your own imagination and that of your friends.One player will take the role of the Games Master, controlling the people and robots who dwell within the city, whilst the other players will be either judges keeping the peace or perps attempting todestroy it.The Games Master sets Mega-City One before the other players, allowing them to explore its immense sky-scraping blocks, fast-paced Meg-Ways and deadly Undercity.
