Today marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare.
Across sundry media, numerous incarnations of The Doctor have met - and worked with - The Bard of Avon at various times in his life.
If you were to use Shakespeare in your own games would be as a character or a source of plot (e.g. by modelling an adventure on, or around, one of his plays)?
Need some official Doctor Who RPG stats for William Shakespeare? Then look no further than page 124 of The Tenth Doctor Handbook (unsurprisingly in the entry for The Shakespeare Code).
Of course, as our language's greatest playwright, Bill The Quill has popped up in many fantastical narratives that would serve as inspiration for role-playing scenarios; the most recent I am aware of being the second season arc of The Librarians, where the fictional character of Prospero stepped out of the pages of The Tempest and sought to rework the world to his own designs.
