Bob, Lord of Evil
This is a supplement to a game called Murphy's World. Sometimes you buy a game for the cover, sometimes you buy it based on past experience, sometimes based on the reviews of others and then at times like when I bought Bob, Lord of Evil you buy it for the title and the premise of the game. I bought this knowing that I would never ever play it. I bought it simply to read it and to own it. I am not sure it is possible to be a better person for owning an object, I know for a fact it isn't but I am am a happier person having this in my collection and happier has to count for something doesn't it. I don't want to neglect mentioning the art which is so appropriate for the system it isn't funny...well actually it is. If you want to get an idea on why it is good to own this read the information on the publisher's site using the link below.

From the Back of the Book:
The Dark Lands, ruled by Bob, Lord of Evil, is a silly place where you can play light- hearted adventures with a techno-fantasy-horror theme. This book can be used with any existing system of rules - you're not required to generate a new Character to visit the Land of Bob, as Characters from other worlds can easily be brought to the Dark Lands via a crashed spaceship, magical backfire, or interdimensional teleportation gate. Characters could even suffer an individual or collective bout of unconsciousness and visit Tir Nan Bob in their dreams, er... nightmares!
