"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Shades of Heroes

From the web:

Originally Shades of Heroes was designed make money and to compete with 2nd edition D&D. D&D was produced at that time, by TSR which had just declared bankruptcy. We had a dream (I say "we" because there were many of us back then) that we could produce a game to fill the gap left by TSR. It was not a bad dream, but our lack of experience taught us a severe lesson. Two years later we were so deep in debt that bankruptcy was our only way out. With gaping wounds and smashed dreams; Argonaut Game Studios (yes the plural used to be reversed) and Shades of Heroes faded out of existence.
