My Saturday Reading: Generic Systems

Here's a few freebies I'm reading (or rereading) and comparing today, as we enjoy a snowy Saturday in Indiana with no place to be:

-Mini Six

-x6 Core Edition

-Basic Roleplaying Quick Start

-EABA Lite

Can you tell I'm on the prowl for another generic system? This time around, I'm looking for something a little more traditional and fleshed out than my beloved PDQ or FATE (both of which are excellent systems, please don't get me wrong).

I thought about GURPS Lite again, but man, I just can't do it. I get the system, but we just can't connect--it just never clicks. Some systems are like that, I guess.

(Also,, a big blogosphere welcome to the blog of one of RPG Blog II's buddies and one of my favorite Palladium authors, Jason Richards. If you're so inclined, make sure to add Jason Richards Cannot Be Trusted [that's the name of his blog, not a reference to his trustworthiness as an individual] to your blog listings).

Have you given GURPS 4e Lite a go? It's pretty much my favorite system at this point. Whichever you decide, best of luck in your search!

Yeah, GURPS is weird for me. We never quite...click. Dunno. Recognize it's great for a lot of things, I just can't get into it.

Thank you!

Glad that you had something to read on a snowy Saturday in Indiana.

Phil and I work on Mini Six so that we have something to do on snowy Sundays in Indiana.

The fact, sir, that your fine creation was made by a Hoosier from the glorious sovereign state of Indiana is a huge point in its favor.

GAMERS, baby. Classic Traveller done generic!
