No FATE?
Everything is edible. Just that there are things only edible once per lifetime.
It's a god-eat-god world.

Procrastination is the thief of time; Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
And to the mercies of a moment leaves; The vast concerns of an eternal scene.

Never heard of Fate or OVA...  Is Fate like some conversion off of the anime?

White Wolf is not a system any more than WotC or Paizo is a system. The proper name for the d10 dicepool system is Storyteller or Storytelling.

Assuming M&M is Mutants and Masterminds, it's d20 and has nothing to do with Rifts or Palladium.

Lots of options are missing. FATE-based games, Cortex, Ars Magica, Runequest (the non-d20 versions, anyway), Legend of the Five Rings (non-d20 version), Tristat systems besides BESM.

Reaaaaally should have looked things up beforehand. A thread asking people to name different systems first, perhaps? :eh

lol why? I don't know everything.. but I do know that including every single RPG system ever made would take way to long haha. So I just included the ones I'm familiar with.. which are a pretty good chunk of the more known systems.




White Wolf is not a system any more than WotC or Paizo is a system. The proper name for the d10 dicepool system is Storyteller or Storytelling.

We all know what I mean when I say white wolf. Vampire, Mage, the list goes on. If I were to say to anyone I know, hey do you want to play a storytelling rpg system game? Would they know what that I meant a white wolf game??
When you think of WhiteWolf games what comes to mind? Vampire? Mage?.... Werewolf? The list is huge. Its all one system.. so I think that saying just Whitewolf was a fine label.





Assuming M&M is Mutants and Masterminds, it's d20 and has nothing to do with Rifts or Palladium.

I guess I was thinking of the Palladiums TMNT setting, and the heroes unlimited book. which was totally awesome. I always got those mixed up back in the day too :P

Well if you want to do a complete poll with every game ever made feel free. As I said to Raineh, these are just the systems I know
:D

Right.. I guess I failed to realize how many systems there actually is   :lol  I've never heard of any of these FATE-based games, Cortex, Ars Magica, Runequest , Legend of the Five Rings,


edit: after reading up on fate it does look interesting..

Open Versatile Anime. Kickstarter of Revised version, i'm already playing with the preview sent to the backers.

It is good, you can do what you want without relying to much on broken numbers or house rules that disbalances the game only by existing.

Why?

Why was there only one for other?

I had to put down Storyteller, which is about my 6th favorite, because you didn't have any of the others up there.

Then again, most of my preferred systems are stuff like Wushu Open, Cthulhu Dark, or Risus, where I'm not surprised they were left out.

Because hands up if you've ever heard of Magical Burst?

I like Whitewolf rpg's.

Not a big fan of Vampires (kinda tired of vampires), but Werewolves, Mages and Demons are very cool.
