Nephilim, Superworld - Does Anyone Still Play These RPGs?

My only gripe with BRP is lethality, such that I am tending to go freeform, and allow players a list of traits, etc that they can pick from to make them exceptional, kind of like in Pulp Cthulhu. I am not into games where players are ne'er do wells, I want them to be heroes and all the baggage that comes with that, no matter the setting.

I understand this opinion but I think it's more about how you set your power level. Granted, I began play with Elric! where characters are encouraged to have skills above 100%. When you pair them against the average town guardsmen, who would generally have 30-40% in skills, the PCs really shine. When they do get into a lethal situation it's usually because they worked themselves into it.

Yeah, people DO still play those games.  Superworld, in particular, gets the GRRM/GoT boost. But as you say -- keeping the PDFs for sale via the online storefront has minimal (essentially zero) c

I can't think of any game I've stopped playing because the publisher didn't have it on an edition treadmill. I've never had someone refuse to play a game because of that reason either... though I supp

M&M's DnD roots drive me crazy. I'm really not fond of that game, although M&M has some great parts to it (the wonky damage system notwithstanding). You're on the money regarding Hero. It

Never played Superworld. But here in France, Nephilim is some kind of a cult-game. I played a long long campaign several years ago, and had very great time! Even the longer character creation ever seen (and still great!).

Yep, alleged BRP lethality is mainly due to the fact most BRP games only allow PCs with rather low skills.

Things would also be different if characters had characteristics outside the 3-18 boundaries, especially CON and SIZ.
