    Classic Fantasy RPG: 1e vs 2e?

    Rodney Leary's Classic Fantasy RPG looks pretty cool – taking the BRP system and melding it with D&D. The new edition uses Mythras as its foundation, while the first edition uses BRP. I know the differences between Mythras and BRP, but would like some feedback on other differences between...

    Can Call of Cthulhu be used to run a vampire game?

    Can Call of Cthulhu 7th edition be utilized to run a really good vampire game? Are there stats for vampires I can find anywhere for it and use to create characters that are also vampires?

    Who will be the standard-bearer for D100?

    Now that Chaosium is essentially the Runequest/Call of Cthulhu company, and now that a bunch of other companies are producing stellar work in the d100 game design field, which do you think will become the standard bearer over the next five years or so?

    Ultimate BRP Cyberpunk Mashup! (CoC 7e, River of Heaven, Infinity skirmish, Atomik CyberTek)

    I am trying to create the ultimate Cyberpunk game. Deep character customization, fast and exciting combat hacking that doesn't leave non-hackers out of the game, pages upon pages of cyberware, bioware and nanoware for players to mod up with, and no humanity loss, which I think was more...
