I agree- I'd use BRPG for a lot of things, but not super heroes.

Yeah, its defiantly worth it. Its still pretty old school feeling, too.

It really can do most anything, and you can make the game pretty simple if you want ( As I am wont to do)

I think its well worth the price.

Heh, thats a good point...

I suppose I like it because its only as simple or as complicated as you like.

Anyone else pick this up? I'm reading it, and I like it quite a bit...

That certainly seems to be the general thrust of the rules I've seen. That idea is boring as hell from my point of view -- both from a DM and a player point-of-view. Why not just play some like Heroscape if that's what you want out of the game? It's less work and far less rules.

Seriously- even the traps and such seem completely toothless in 4E. I hate to sound bitter, but I really just don't understand where the fun is there.

I suppose I can see the motivation to make Dming easier, especially since its a rather tedious task in 3.5. Regardless, its also made the whole thing a lot less fun. A bigger problem with DMing in the new editions is that its practically impossible to fairly challenge players.

Considering what I've heard about 4th- the DM is actually just setting up bowling pins for the PC's to knock over.

Wow, someones response to that blog you posted really irked me.

He said that with rule zero gone, DMs "No longer have the right to cheat". Its amazing how the point of that rule has been missed- but it seems like that line of thinking is what led to 3rd edition and beyond.

My fears are substantiated, it seems.

Yeah, I want to know too...

All stuff I would have understood if I had read the first post more thoroughly. ^^;

Sorry about that, Randall!
12  Retro Game Systems / Retro Fantasy: TSR Dungeons & Dragons / Re: Original D&D: What Classes & Rules Would You Use? on: May 25, 2008, 12:31:38 am
I'd probably just go with the classes in the original 3 books. If I were to play OD&D, I'd want to go as simple as possible.

I may use Paladins from Greyhawk, just because its always been my favorite class. Though I'd probably give it to a particularly noble Fighting-Man if he had proven himself, or something like that.

I think you are in the clear then- lots of people seem to have stuff like that all over the internet.

Not sure how you would go about copyrighting that, though.
14  General / Roleplaying Games: The Meta-Discussions / Re: Creative Commons or OGL? on: May 23, 2008, 10:29:27 am
I wish I knew enough about copy right to really help. Maybe you could simply bill it as a  game less setting?
15  General / Roleplaying Games: The Meta-Discussions / Re: What's Wrong With Not Liking Current RPGs? on: May 10, 2008, 02:00:53 am
I got a lot of flack for not liking newer editions from some people- which is funny, because I never once said they were worse in anyway, just different from what I like.

I really don't get the need for everyone to like the same thing.
