So do you play Non D20 /OSR Games?

Yep. I sure do.

I like AD&D 2e GURPS, Unisystem (Buff, Angel, All Flesh, Witchcraft and the most excellent Ghosts of Albion) and Risus.

Generally I don't use my other systems as these suit my needs just fine.

You won't see products for these though unless there is a 2e retro-clone.

GURPS stuff is done in house, Unisystem is basically impossible to license or use and Risus stuff is not really salable. And I do like money ...

However its not impossible I may slip a Unisystem Fan Article in sometime. You never know.

A few other games also tweak my interest and while haven't found a group that plays them (they all LARP around here) both worlds of Darkness any New World of Darkness save Promethean and Old Mage, Werewolf or Changeling (though I don't much like the system) would be fun. I'd also like to try Ubiquity Savage Worlds, Cortex or Traveller ....


  1. In the past 2 years I've played outside D&D and OSR land with Earthdawn, Call of Cthulhu, GURPS, WoD and BRP.

  2. Cool.

    Thinking about it when Mongoose RQ came out I also played a one shot at my then FLGS . Not a bad game except that there were too many players.

    Also played a 2e one shot with a very poor DM

    A few of the other things we tried seemed to fizzle for some reason, usually player base except in the case of Exalted by a GM who we knew simply didn't get the core concept of super powerful PC's (he wanted Dragonblods) and so we turned him down
