Btw what games are people playing these days?

I stopped playing D&D a year or 2 after 2nd edition came out (around the time that magic got big). I wrote my own RPG and I have been playing that and cyberpunk 2020 (heavily modified) for the last few years. Recently when my co writer suggested we go d20 I walked into a game store for the first time in years. Everything looked like d20. It looked like world of darkness and rifts was still somewhat around. It was also nice to see some battletech books.

Anyway I would like to get a feel for what people are playing.

I'm a fan of d20, especially D&D 3.5, and the current incarnation of the World of Darkness.

It's been a while from when I last played any of the World of Darkness games.

I never found anyone who was able to really run a good Vampire game.

I'm playing in one 3rd ed game, and am working on putting together a one-shot 3rd ed reverse dungeon as well as a 3e Ravenloft game.

I will not buy the sourcebooks for 3.5

I've also recently played some Fading Suns, some Unknown Armies, and some Call of Cthulhu, all of which I've rather enjoyed.

Call of Cthulhu is still out there? Omg

if you dont mind me asking why will you not buy 3.5 books?

D20 DnD 3.0 or D20 Modern. I'd like to play some D20 games based off of video games but you need the right crew of people for that so it hasn't happened yet.

D&D 3.5 and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition.
Cyberpunk 2020 and other systems on the rare occasion (anymore) :)

The new World of Darkness sucks, we play the old version. (IMHO)

We play 3.5 D&D. I try to stay away from 3rd party d20 stuff a lot because I find it can be very unbalancing, especially with 10,000 prestige classes out there. :-/

I did not get the chance to look at the new world of darkness stuff when I went to the store. I was in awe at the new D&D stuff.

Before someone has me kicked off the board....(Im going to get it for this) What is a prestige class?

Oh, I might make mention, I also used to play, and am currently in the process of recollecting the books for, Iron Crown Enterprise's system known as Rolemaster. Nobody seems to know what the heck I'm talking about, but anyone who played MERP played the Rolemaster system. I find that to be another fascinating gaming system, but the only way you'll get the books for it anymore is through ebay/Internet means.

I'm running an Ars Magica game which runs every other week. The group play wizards in medieval Poland, trying to build up enough personal power to survive the Mongols, who will soon invade.

Last session one of the PCs got his leg crushed from the knee down by a massive stone block, and another one was incapacitated by a swarm of demonic bats. This isn't D&D now -- so the first wizard now has a peg-leg and the second is going to be recuperating for about 3 months.

Good game.

I'm running a D&D 3.5 game, using some rules from d20 Past to set the game in something resembling an 18th century South Atlantic, for a fantasy Pirates of the Caribbean game. I've also GMed d20 Modern in the past and I'm dying to get my hands on d20 Future, just so I can disguise a lot of stuff and drop it on my D&D players.

I've used 3.5 since it came out, though I only bought the PHB in January. The other books I received as gifts. I think the changes made to the Ranger and Bard are reason enough to warrant a switch, but my favorite is the update of Damage Reduction.

D&D3.5, every Thursday night. I also run an online (play-byu-post) game at Enworld.

D&D 3.5 and Conan

I run in one 3.5 game, play in another, and play in an Ars Magica game. If your world is a fairly typical fantasy world, then OGL is probably a good option. IIRC, you need to do something special to use the d20 mark, but its not hard (for print publications). For generic sword and sorcery fantasy, I can't think of any other big systems at the moment, except maybe the rerelease of the BRPS coming down the pipe.

I've been playing D&D 3.5 Eberron setting for some time now. I've also just started playing a S.L.A. Industries game, which is really fun. I hadn't looked at it in years and was really thrilled when my GM suggested it.

For about ten years I was only playing freeform RPGs with about thirty players and five GMs while occasionally tinkering with homebrew FRPG rules, but was invited into a 3.5 game (with rules that blew mine out of the water) the week it was released and have been playing the same character every week (or two) since (now 13th level).

I run D&D 3.5. It's all I've known and I'm not liable to stray from it; One set of rulebooks is time consuming enough for my liking and store of free time.
