    So would someone be interested if I ran a Fate game?

    Alas, I am trying to get a Blade game of the ground, otherwise I would consider.

    Spelljammer. I really want to play Spelljammer.

    Also Palladium's Robotech. Not because of the system, but because I'd love to play Robotech!

    Pretty broad swath of non-RIFTS Palladium for me, especially TMNT&OS.

    I have played some Barbarians of Lemuria, but not nearly enough.

    I need to figure out... how to combine TMNT&OS with BoL. Or just wait until FERAL RPG launches.

    I'd really like to play a game of D&D starting in B and ending in I.

    Oooh, nice choice!

    1E Robotech and 1E Beyond the Supernatural. Got me interested in Palladium's stuff. I've never played, but I sure have mined it for ideas over the decades.

    I loved the Beyond the Supernatural book...it spawned several game ideas (in other systems) for me! In that sense similar to the Everlasting books I mentioned.

    So very, very much so. I cannot count the hours I spent reading the ruins and ley lines and history section.

    Fun fact: in 2005, my wife, myself, and a dozen friends started planning a trip to England. People wanted to see Stonehenge, but the number of tourists and security shot that idea down. I gleefully suggested Avesbury as an alternative. SOLD!

    Spent a half-day wandering around a village inna stone circle with a 1000 year-old church because of a gaming book I bought as a teenager.

    SCORE!

    Savage World's Rifts. I own the books. But I cannot convince my friends to play the game.

    Also Dark Heresy. Oh I've run the game. Great fun. But I've never played in it.

    Ever check out the fan-made Third Invid War stuff by Dave Deitrich? Pretty cool stuff there! It's no longer up, but you might be able to find it on the Wayback Machine. Which is currently undergoing maintenance...

    www.stealfalcon.com was an old friend before it was relegated to the Wayback Machine.

    I would choose to go a different route with my 1E Robotech RPG stuff, but it was a well designed setting, site, and materials.

    There are a few systems I'd like to try, mostly older ones that I didn't get to back in the day.

    Ones like Ars Magica, Paranoia and a few of the 2nd Ed D&D settings; Dark Sun, Spelljammer, Planescape.

    I've always wanted to try out Paranoia and Kult, but I never found a group to play with for those.

    Oh, and another campaign I'd like to be involved in ...
    Troupe style Battletech/mechwarrior (or maybe a different system). The party make up a platoon (or squad or troop or whatever) of tanks including PCs as the crew of each tank.
    For example, each tank has 4 crew - a commander, driver, engineer and gunner. Each of the 4 players creates one character of each type and has one character in each tank.
    Some adventures would be for one tank crew, some just for the engineers (or drivers etc) and some would be for an assortment - "Everyone choose a character to be in the bar when this happens..."

    Paranoia
    The original Gamma World (TSR, not WotC).
    Crimefighters! (Dragon Magazine— played once, wanted to play more. Great little system for pulp settings.)
    DC Heroes (Mayfair, IIRC)— wanted to experience how the system worked, though I wound up going with MSH FASERIP.
    Space 1889

    Honorable mentions as semi-RPGs:
    Heroquest
    Warhammer Quest (original)
    “New rule! DON’T PICK UP THE EVIL NECROSTICK!”— One of my teen players.
    So of course, one of the others immediately did.

    I remembered another system I wanted to play: Spellbound Kingdoms, a black powder fantasy game with a combat system featuring very different, dynamic fighting styles (the free combat primer gives a good idea of how it works. It also has things like inspirations that help in combat and that you can attack outside of combat in social situations so that your enemy becomes easier to defeat.

    I got super pumped to play queens cavaliers, a Victorian clock punk setting where the rules of fashion dictated how effective your magic clothing was. It had lots of things I was interested to try. Unfortunately the author was having a bad time and it never reached print. It might be available for free online now but, my gaming group broke up.

    It's actually not all that intimidating to GM (3e, at least). Unfortunately, I lost my cheat-sheet that I handed out to my players in the shuffle of moving (that was two computers ago...) The rough part was character creation - people loved the lifepath thing, but then hit the wall of "Spend points on things and create your own powers. Handholding? Examples? Those are for lesser games!". Once we got into the game itself, people got into the swing of things.

    I think Chuubo's has a better implementation of a lot of the rules concepts (advancement and character creation are much simpler, mundane intentions actually matter, etc), but I like Nobilis' setting more.

    Give it a go - the world needs more Nobilizers!

    Technoir actually runs really smoothly at the table. Like, silky smooth. I'd give it a shot (or, at least, try to generate some hype about it) - unless the issue is that you have a playgroup that doesn't like cyberpunk noir.

    ---

    Anyway, I'd really like to actually sit down and play Makeyuu Kingdom one of these days. Ooh, and Unknown Armies (most of the people I've gamed with aren't as interested in weird horror as I am ). And Legends of the Wulin. Other than that, I have a list of indie games a mile long (still want to play Dogs in the Vineyard and Don't Rest Your Head...)

    I also wish Dreaming Waters was finished (there's a draft floating around the internet - it's a really interesting urban fantasy/high fantasy game by the same person who wrote Nobilis. Too bad it doesn't really have character creation/advancement rules...)

    The main issue is that a lot of people I play with tend to be more "I do the biggest number and I need the numbers to go up" type of players. They take to dungeon crawls well enough, but some get bored when it's time for talking. Might end up giving it a go one day though. It's such a weird concept that I want to play around in.
