''The Fantasy Trip'' was Steve Jackson's first RolePlayingGame. Starting with ''Melee'' in 1977, later expanding with ''Wizard'' (which added magical combat), the rules started out as a simple yet tactical set of combat rules. When ''In the Labyrinth'' came out, the rules expanded to a full-on RPG one of the earliest [=RPGs=], along with ''DungeonsAndDragons'' and ''[[TabletopGame/TunnelsAndTrolls Tunnels & Trolls]]'', in 1980. For a while, ''The Fantasy Trip'' was the second-best selling RPG of all time.

Despite being out of print for almost three decades, ''The Fantasy Trip'' still has a cult following. Its rules are viewed by its fans as a more elegant version of ''{{GURPS}}'', as the rules were very simple and focused on fantasy. There have been conversions to other settings on the Internet.

* ArmorAndMagicDontMix: Co-UrExample alongside the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' Holmes Basic Set. Justified in that [[ColdIron ferrous metals disrupt magic]], and armor's weight interferes with spells' [[MagicalGesture somatic components]].

Unfortunately, Microgaming went out of business only a few years later. Steve Jackson tried to buy the rights to the game, but instead went on to his new company, Steve Jackson Games, and wrote a set of rules that was, more or less, ''The Fantasy Trip Advanced''.
