Yo. So, my group has been playing the same couple D&D 3.5 campaigns for over a year now. When they started, they hailed my return to table top gaming after an age of absence. In my fervent, glory days, I was a gamer of many colors, indulging in anything that had a rulebook (and some without). I attended cons and found new games, always searching for something to stray from the tired old crap we'd gotten used to.
And now, we've been playing these 3.5 campaigns forever and I'm ready bring something new (or old, but new to the group) to the table. I'm dying to play some old West End d6 Star Wars (I have troves of books for that game), but I don't think I can sell anyone on playing it. It's not the best system in the world, but it holds a lot of nostalgia for me...and I can't quite bring myself to play d20 Star Wars (as if Lucas ruining the saga wasn't enough, we had to let WOTC dig their talons in). If anyone has played the WOTC version and thinks it rules, let me know. I'm willing to give it a chance with valid testimony. I've thought about bringing World of Darkness back, but again, it would be the older versions. I have far too many books and have kids now, so blowing money on the new stuff is out of the question.
Anyone have any other suggestions of games I could take? Anything that has PDF or online rules or supplements would be killer. Just looking for something new. Any genre works.
