    So, do you play pen and paper roleplaying games (i.e. D&D, shadowrun, call of cthulu, etc.)?
    Robotech, Rifts, AD&D, Shadowrun, Warewolf.....yeah, I've played lots of them...good times.

    Looks like there's more than one.

    AfterWorlds has been held up by just about everything that could have gone wrong in RPG development-- lack of funding, missed deadlines, lost our editor, license troubles-- but we're still optimistic about a First or Second Quarter 2011 release. (Of course, our plan was GenCon 2008.) It's old-school post-apocalyptic gaming at its finest, with weird mutations and psychic powers in the lawless ruins of modern civilization.

    As far as actual playing goes, we're going to start playtesting for AfterWorlds as soon as we're more or less in agreement over how the system should work, and I'm currently running a HARP game set in a dark re-imagining of the Super Mario Bros universe.

    RIFTS

    *twitch, twitch*

    I had a former guy I used to game with....often time with great regret later...who was into Rifts for a short time and made me subsequently want to scream whenever I heard it mentioned.

    I prefer to play the Hero System since it's a toolkit. I can't stand anything related to d20.

    Its actually kind of funny...before D20 was D20 my two most commonly played games was 2nd ed D&D which still used the d20 a lot and Cyberpunk which had this weird D10 system. For a while there we were playing with these home brew rules that I meshed together for a generic somewhat free form game of modified D&D that did D20 + half your stat + a bonus for being proficient in a skill or any attack pluses when it came to attacking going up against a set number that you had to beat out. It was a really rough system but I enjoyed it...so when I saw 3e and the D20 system it instantly felt wonderful in my eyes because it was like someone went in my head and took the giant boulder rolling around in it and sculpted it into something wonderful.

    I definitely get its not everyones cup of T, but I've always enjoyed it and the mix of a stable ruleset mixed with a fair amount of flexibility.

    Haven't played pen and paper AD&D since my college days, but I miss it. I also played Traveller, Star Frontiers and Call of Cthulu. Still have my dice though. This should bring back some memories, at least for you ol' timers

    I played pretty much every system published up until 1995, so I have a wide variety of systems under my belt. Hero System just became my go to system because it just makes sense.

    I guess it wouldn't hurt to show everyone the logo and the cover preview of my book. The cover is drawn by Brett Barkley, so please leave any feedback you would like.
