  1. I actually have the Avalon Hill boxed-set version of RuneQuest, though I haven't pulled it out in a really long time, and I have a copy of Stormbringer. I think overall though, especially based on some of the things that have been said in this thread, BRP is the most attractive option to me because not only can it do fantasy just fine, but if for some reason he wants to start playing in another genre then we can do that while still keeping the same set of rules. That's really interesting information about Ken Rolston. I had no idea the creator of The Elder Scrolls also worked on a BRP sys
  2. Improving skills through usage is a must, as that's one of the things he really likes about the Elder Scrolls system, so thank you both very much for the advice.
  3. When it comes to tabletop role-playing he tends to like fantasy. The thing that made me think of BRP is right now he's playing Oblivion, and he keeps mentioning how much he likes that character advancement is based on skill usage. That added to the fact that Oblivion uses stats in the 100s range reminded me of when I played some old RuneQuest and its skill advancement system, and I think he would probably really enjoy the BRP system.
  4. Hey guys, which form and version of BRP do you think would be best to use to introduce a new player to the BRP system?

    Yeah, the games that some businesses play. The defendant should have at least been reimbursed for costs. I'm guessing things work a little differently over there though.

    This is a good point. Even if official D&D had disappeared, someone could have made a D&D clone and everyone would have known that it was basically a D&D clone, and things would have continued from there. "Armor Class" is actually too short a phrase to copyright. It would have to be trademarked for TSR / Wizards to own the phrase, and I haven't seen any trademarking applied to it. However, your point is still a good one.

    I love the Baen Free Library. It's a good way to discover new authors, and thereby buy some of their other books.

    If I do turn this into a text-only epub, I'd be happy to share.

    This also isn't a bad idea for building my own epub so I can read it on my ereader.

    But isn't OpenQuest also fantasy? I meant BRP as in, a generic system that would work with any setting. Very true.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if someone took Legend and, because it's all open content, re-engineered it into basically something quite a bit like BRP.

    I agree I love epub and epub ereaders like the Kobo and Nook, but I still have a certain affinity for papery magazines .

    Speaking of the old days, one thing I really wish they would bring back are print gaming magazines, like Pyramid. Not in electronic form, but in print form. But that's way off topic.

    As tedopon alluded to, when doing business I'd rather do business with Amazon.com. The free shipping is nice too.

    The problem with that though is not everyone can read PDFs comfortably. For some people, such as myself, reading a long text on a backlit screen is very uncomfortable, and unfortunately PDFs don't work very well on ereaders yet.
