Started with DnD after playing NWN 1, I found it hard to learn and overcomplicated.
Went to White Wolf, which was too simple and random.
Went to Savage Worlds, which was easy to learn, fast, but hard to explain.
Started working on my own adaptation of TN systems using D10s, which had a stat based target number. it didn't work out too well in comparison to my CoC (Later) and Savage Worlds sessions.
Finally got Call of Cthulhu, and now have BRP's Hardcover Edition on order for myself (Though can't open the pages until Christmas because I am expecting a ton of RPG supplies then). Love the system and am already making settings for it with what little info I can glean until the book arrives in the mail.
Mostly Homebrew or CoC. Have a soft spot for gritty settings like Cyberpunk ones, or Spy Settings, Pulp as well. Horror is always nice. Love Historical Fiction/Fantasy.
