What other games do you play?

Postby merias » Sat Mar 26, 2016 8:07 pm

What other games besides S&W do you all play? I'm in a rather eclectic group that likes to switch systems as the mood strikes whoever is reff'ing. Plus I'm in lots of play-by-post games, and have played with my family on occasion. Just in the past few years, apart from S&W I've played or ran (in no particular order) Labyrinth Lord, OD&D, Holmes Basic, Delving Deeper, Risus, Pits & Perils, Star Frontiers, White Star, Cryptworld, Starships & Spacemen (2e), X-plorers, Shotguns-n-Saddles, Mutant Future, Microlite '74, AD&D 1e, AS&SH, and Basic Fantasy. I _think_ that's it.

My "real life" group gets together only occasionally but when we do we play AD&D 1st edition (White Plume Mountain) and D&D B/X (Keep on the Borderlands). Online I play S&W Whitebox and S&W Complete.

Ancient thread, but not a bad question!

Currently I am playing in a Mythras Classic Fantasy game (essentially the RuneQuest version of D&D) as well as a Mongoose Traveller 2e game. I am working on a campaign for Crypts & Things as well as Mythras.

What I play most often are OSR games, especially BFRPG or OSRIC/1e clones/AD&D since I own so much material for both.

Oh so much 1E and OSRIC. :)
But I just finished a PbP that the DM ran Star Trek: Adventure Gaming in the Final Frontier over on Unseen Servant That's old school and it was tons of fun!
Be well,

Ron I perused that game in the completed forum, it looked like fun. I'd like to run Starships & Spacemen 1e sometime, which is similarly set in the ST ToS universe (with numbers filed off as it was never an officially licensed game afaik). That is one game I have in print but have never played.

That game was so much fun. It had a slow post rate, even for a PbP :D but it fit perfectly. And the GM was good, Starbeard, he likes out there game.
I think ST:AGitFF is just the one book (or PDF rather) and felt real OD&D to me, so I enjoyed it. While I'm a huge TOS fan, really huge, I've never really done a lot of Sci Fi RPGs. Dabbled in Star Frontiers when I was younger, played Metamorphosis Alpha at a Con once, and a buddy of mine who lives close ran a game - he took a bunch of different elements from some OSR games but I think it was a system based off of OD&D. White Star maybe?? Something like that.
