Can you use FtA! for serious sophisticated stories, with lots of politics, intrigue, romance or character development?
Well, sure, you can, but really why would you? FtA! is the game for when you are tired of all that junk, and just want to go back down into the Gnomish mines, travel through the dangerous wilderlands in search of ruins, steal from shops, try eating a wraith corpse, and maybe, if you're really lucky, find Mjolnir.
Get to it, boys and girls, adventure lies ahead.
