I had the honor & good fortune to be invited by Steve Perrin as a playtester for the original Runequest development. I had known Steve as Sir Stephen de Lorraine in the SCA from back when there was but one Kingdom in the entire known world. Because of my dyslexia I sometimes reversed numbers when calculating the odds in skill vs skill contests & so I created created the Resistance Table & so was labeled by Steve as Mr Resistance Table for all these years.. I alas was out at sea during the final days before the release, but I still have an original (& possibly the lone surviving copy according to Steve) of the playtest rules & notes.
Since then I have had the good fortune to be involved in testing RQ up to the current incarnation as BRP. I have always enjoyed the straight forward structure of the game as well as the ability to adapt it to many different settings. It also has a mechanic that gives a close enough feeling to my real life experiences to satisfy me.
I'm presently working on some expansions of scenarios that I wrote over the past decades & translating them to BRP terms from RQ terms. Best of luck to all fellow fans of BRP.
