There's a lot of interesting stuff in that post, much of which I agree with, but I'm curious about the idea of "mentors" that you started discussing in the middle.

I prefer what I call "action horror", since it's usually not about the same sort of stuff that Call of Cthulhu is about.

I quite dig horror films, surpisingly enough. I haven't seen very many the past couple of years that actually caught my interest, but I do keep half an eye out.

Ringu and Ju-on are my top 2 picks. ...

Yup. I've got 3 projects firmly in mind and occasionally noodle about with one or two other things half-heartedly.

Personally I think the game is less likely to make people want to roleplay, it's too complex and needs all those figures and cards and crap.

Woah there cowboy. That's quite a claim you're making. ...

In looking at the dice, I was strongly reminded of Monsterpocalypse.

I don't think that's a bad thing, just a thing. WHFRPG in general leaves me cold, but the _approach_ they're apparently taking i ...

Re: getting a handle on the ORE

Just reading Nemesis is probably the worst way to do this. The text is so minimal that I don't think you could run it very effectively from just that. I've used it a ...

Depending on exactly where your tastes go, there's always the clone of the old Marvel FASERIP system, called 4C. It's available for free (or buy a printed version), and you can find it here:

I enjoy D20 games but wish it had some game mechanic that directly influenced role playing or plot generation. I'm not a highly experienced player or GM, but in D&D (all editions), and others, the ...
