Dallas the Television Role Playing Game

Dallas debuted on April 2, 1978, as a five-part miniseries on CBS. Producers initially had no plans for expansion; however, due to the show’s popularity, it was subsequently turned into a regular series and broadcast for 13 full seasons from September 23, 1978, to May 3, 1991. The show is known for its portrayal of wealth, sex, intrigue, conflict and power struggles. Throughout the series, the main premise is the longtime rivalry between the Ewing and Barnes families, which came to head when the Barnes daughter Pamela (Victoria Principal) eloped with youngest Ewing son Bobby (Patrick Duffy), in the first episode.
