Day 24 – Most Complicated RPG Owned
I’m not one for ‘complicated’ RPGs as I prefer the systems to be more ‘in the background’, ‘free flowing’ and ‘unobtrusive’ leaving the focus on the story and the characters decisions and interactions.
I seriously considered selecting ‘Rolemaster’ in this category but ended up going for ‘Tribe 8’ by Dream Pod 9. It was a fantastic setting and background story but the mechanics that the game came with just didn’t encourage us to actually play the game. It’s a real shame as, at the time, we were really keen on it because the story and the artwork invoked loads of ideas and we soaked up the ‘background’ elements of the core rulebook and the supplements that they released for it. I still have an entire set of the books and would love to have another look at them at somepoint when I have enough time (and a group to play it with) to convert the game to a different system.
