Introduced to rpgs through Fighting Fantasy gamebooks rpg back in 1984, and then to RuneQuest (2nd ed) in 1985. Updated to RuneQuest (3rd ed) in 1987, and never looked back. Played or GM'd RuneQuest, Call of Cthuhlu, and Stormbringer, before becoming a rpg system junkie - played or GM'd ICE (MERP, Rolemaster, Cyberspace,HARP), AD&D, White Wolf Storyteller (WoD series, Adventure, Aberent), Shadowrun, D&D 3E, GURPS, True20, and more recently Savage Worlds. Still waiting to try out Traveller after all these years, and currently interested in test driving Eclipse Phase and a FUDGE/FATE game such as Spirit Of The Century or The Kerebus Club.
However, I've come full circle and returned to BRP as my all-time favourite system to consistently game in. It's just so logical, simple, and smooth; easily one of the best gaming engines by a long shot. Its is essientially a low complexity simulatonist gaming engine which allows a lot of room for creativity, and can be easily played with a modern narrative emphasis. I have found it appeals to a wide scope of players, and is a pleasure to run at the gaming table.
Hard to know which is my 'go to' system these days, LEGEND/RQ6 or the BRP BGB/CoC 5E...
Currently running: BRP Glorantha 3rd Age Campaign (basically BRP/RQ3 with some elements of DM RQ6
rules thrown in for good measure). Alternating this with my own home brew BRP Pulp Cthulhu 1920s/1930s setting, its alot of fun. Not playing as much as I would like, about a session every 2nd month is all we can fit in these days; work, wife & kids have to get some time as well!
Also loves: BRP Settings - ROME, The Laundry, Chronicles of Future Earth, Call of Cthulhu & Cthulhu By Gaslight, Celestial Empire, Dragon Lines, Crusaders of the Amber Coast, Aces High, The Green, Merrie England, Mythic Iceland, Pendragon (ok, its not BRP, but it is a cousin...) MRQ2/LEGEND Settings - Glorantha 2nd Age, Vikings, Clockwork & Chivalry, Dues Vult, Age Of Treason, RuneQuest 6, MagicWorld. I would love to try RQ6 as written, but my troupe is reluctant to convert from my RQ3 homebrew.
