Your Favorite non-GDW Scifi RPG, Part 1
OK, per Hans's suggestion, this is a new poll.

Mods, please delete the old one; voters, please vote again (sorry).

The poll comes in two parts, to expand your options. Part 1 lists Alternity through Space: 1889. Part 2 lists SpaceMaster through Universe.

Part 2 is here:

In further news, I'm switching to multiple votes. No one will like just one scifi RPG besides Traveller, and with multiple votes some interesting "consensual" games will likely emerge.

EDIT: The software didn't let me limit the number of multiple votes. Let's keep it to three (3) votes in Parts 1 & 2 combined.

polls suggestion too.....:)

So tough tough call but my buddy ran Shadowrun with a thing for detail... of course paranoia was excellent... but the computer will punish me for not choosing it.

He he - Alternity this time.

Wonder how many people have the Dune game so can vote for it?

(I have ;))

I do have it, but wouldn't vote for it. The base task system is badly flawed. (As was LUG-Trek, which uses the same system.)

Sorry to bring it up since this is a remade poll, but Battletech and Mechwarrior are the same thing.
Or rather, Mechwarrior is the RPG of the Battletech wargame. So that might slew things slightly.

On the upside, I'd play a Battletech rpg, just not using Mechwarrior so I guess this poll lets me add the distinction.

So that gives me Battletech, SpaceMaster and Star Wars SAGA.

Mongoose Starship Troopers would have gotten a vote as would 3:16.
I ran a couple of short Aliens campaigns that were a blast, but the system was so heavily modded from the L.E.G. version it would probably count as a home-brew.

As mentioned before, mainly GURPS Space, but also Expendables (not on
the list) and Thousand Suns - and Blue Planet, occasionally.

I've only tried two of the 20 games mentioned (although I have browsed a couple more), so that makes it easy to choose: Paranoia and Space:1889.


skyth February 22nd, 2009 11:30 AM

SpaceMaster all the way if I had to choose.

I do like battletech and Paranoia though :)

Supplement Four February 22nd, 2009 01:23 PM

Three from this list? I'll go with Blue Planet, Dune, and Fading Suns.

Gallowglacht February 22nd, 2009 01:45 PM

I think its meant to be three between the 2 lists, not 3 in each.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 09:49 AM.
