I am the Law and you’d better believe it, punk!
Welcome to Mega-City One, a city of over four hundred million people and every one 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 - 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 the judges and set up their own criminal organisations.
