Tsimits & Tsuris is a role-playing game written by Sheldon Linker and published in The Lords of Chaos (Issue 10 - Jan 1980). It had a humorous "also known as" title of D&DQuest-44 with Warlock Inclusions.
The game essentially is an amalgam of various rules, combats, and processes (in today's verbiage, a "mashup") from Dungeons & Dragons (Original Edition), DragonQuest (1st Edition), Superhero 2044, and The Complete Warlock. The game system is derived from the author's personal 1970s campaign which featured an "everything rolled into one" approach. The main thrust of the game is to standardize character races, abilities, skills, classes, traits, equipment, and so forth, from all of the inputs. Additionally, a unique but somewhat derivative combat system is provided. Magic and Super-Powers both are supported, and even some high technology components are included.
It's a unique game with a "gonzo" feel, reminiscent of the better-known Arduin, with which it is contemporaneous.
