Which system do YOU prefer? D20, while fun, is a bit random an complicated once you have seen GURPS in action. I mean, Respect to the newly dead (Rest in Piece Mr. Gygax, we’ll miss you big guy.) but there’s more than just 1 system out there. So do you like the OG (original Gamer)D20 or the simpler, faster GURPS?

Let’s hear it!

IMHO there’s much room for debate here. Randomness FTL.

Gurps? Simpler? Faster?

You either hit your head, or isn’ using enough rulebooks.

Well, to be honest, I only just started playing, and it was a lot easier for me to get started with GURPS than D20.

GURPS could be made to be very complicated, or very simple, based on whos running it.

gurps is modular, and at its core much faster and simpler than d20.

of course the call of additional rulebooks is hard to resist, but it’s not like you need them for anything.

my self-made mixture of fate with ore, but out of those two? gurps. i’d rather masturbate to pictures of elizabeth II than play d20.

They are different pen and paper role playing systems. D20 is more commonly known as D&D

So, to those who play GURPS, what’s the setting? I’m in a 1st or 2nd age LOTR group.

How is gurps faster? 1d20+mods vs rolling three dice and comparing to a target number?

Needless to say, MAKING the characters in d20 is so, so much faster

“Bonegrinder the Merciless”

I was a D&D, AD&D & MSH first edition player, so I may be completely out of it, but I hated D4 / D6 / D8 / D10 / D16 / D20 stuff.

When it came down to DM / GMing, I just stated percentages to my players and just had them roll two D10, the hell with (most) of the rules, since all we cared about was the fun aspect, not a being rule whore. Plus it was hard not to lose all those damn dice Log in to see images!

I still have no idea how GURPS differs, and I’ve done my rudimentary google search Log in to see images! _Alex_ edited this message on 03/10/2008 2:57AM

I’ve always been a d20 fan. It adds a good element to gameplay and the depth of characters and complexity of games using the d20 system really sets you at a level that once you’ve learned, is very comfortable and with plenty of room to grow.

I usually play technological settings.

Which means having handy alotta stuff like Cyberpunk, Ultratech, Biotech… sometimes Supers, Magic / Gimoire and / or Psionics … and Robots / Vehicles / Mecha whenever a player wants to make a robot character or new hovercraft. Sometimes both.

Once we tried to make a game with the maximum amount of rulebooks possible, we piled around 13 books in the game. No, really.
