    I'm creating this topic so we can share the different systems!
    I really like collecting different core rules, some of my favorites being:
    Pathfinder/D&D 3.5 - one of my favorites, and the one that I have more material;
    Mage the ascension - one of the most interesting magic system that I've seen;
    Fragged Empire - a cool sci-fi Rpg, with a lot of different settings (even a fantasy one);
    Golden Sky Stories - an interesting system, where you control little animals that can transform into People, and the objective is to help People in a small rural town;
    Tenra Bansho Zero - Heaven and Earth Edition - this one is really cool, where the adventure plays like a kabuki play, and the classes are crazy.
    If you know other system and care to share, post below!

    Making my own board game called Great Trappist Race. Also already made a cardgame called Rebellion, which my readers see for the first time in Felicia's Second Life. Currently designing a TCG titled Fleet: A Space Opera.

    Unfortunately, Ai-chan can't share their systems as none of them are patented yet.

    Best system I've ever played with was G.U.R.P.S by Steve Jackson Games. You can play everything from cavemen to starships, superheroes to Call of Cthulhu and everything in between, and all at the same time.

    I've only ever played 3 RPGs really.
    Dark Heresy for 40k
    Call of Cthulhu
    Numenera

    Good fun, CoC was a blast simply because of how "down to earth" it was.

    I've tried lots of systems and played tons of campaigns in 20+ years, my three choices are:

    Anima Beyond Fantasy (medieval fantasy with a huge inspiration in manga/anime. You can create almost any kind of character with any power you can imagine. Plus it's spanish :p)

    7th Sea (Pirates and musketeers, nuff said. I was DM in a campaing that lasted years, needs a lot of house rules though. The new edition solves quite a lot but I'm not totally convinced)

    Shadowrun: The perfect mix of cyberpunk and fantasy. (Dunkelzahn for president!!! xD)

    I've played various D&D, Anima, World of Darkness, and Deadlands mostly. I want to play Shadowrun, and I remember really wanting to try a Wheel of Time RPG book my uncle had when I was young.

    D&D is probably the system I played the most. 3.5 with Tome of Battle and Magic of Incarnum was probably the height since I absolutely hated 4th for it’s betrayal of everything D&D. Although 5th is back to it’s roots I still haven’t got over the distaste. Been looking at Pathfinder and thinking about finding a game but it’s different and takes times to adjust to. Have to relearn rules which I took for granted from 3.5. Path of War looks interesting as does Akashic Mysteries but not sure about quality especially the summon veils (the summon celestial unicorn one in particular).

    GURPS is probably the most versatile and realistic system. It has excellent skill and armor system such that you don’t rely on massive hp like other system. Armor and training actually matter greatly in this system. It’s myriad of skills and defaults is also wonderful but takes a lot to apply properly. The downside is that there are not a lot prebuilt worlds so it requires a lot of GM work. Of course it’s ideal for crossword/cross genre games.

    Finally the 3rd major system I’ve spent loads of time on is RIFTS. It’s a great mashup of different genres with imaginative settings that inspire vast possibilities with magic, psionics and tech... crippled with a completely crap of a sustem that is next to impossible to balance for a diverse party. The abilities are kind of arbitrary and the skill system borders on useless. At times I wish someone would take the setting and reimplement it using another system. I have seen GURPS Rifts btw.

    Same. I sometimes feel a little envious of people who were able to play it growing up.

    Edit: I think it should be TTRPG, as TRPG is a Tactical rpg, which I have played before

    Genesys, a system using its own dice not d20's, with indicators for success, failure, advantage and threat on them. I've had fun times already and the campaign is only yet starting. It really encourages your imagination, encourages players taking the initiative. More work to prepare though, our GM says.

    I've only played a little but of TRPG's. My only other experience was with a watered down version of D&D, which wasn't as fun or stimulating/inventive as Genesys, and one other time Paranoia, which was fucking great. Less of an RPG, fixed setting, but hilarious.

    I've played mostly DnD 5e. I've played a bit of DnD 3.5 and Call of Cthulhu. My friend recommended that I use the Hero System to run a certain type of campaign I wanted to run.

    You could try finding a group online on like maybe roll20.

    I've played DnD, but I've watched campaigns in the Rifts system, Super science meets high fantasy. Awesomeness is the result with such events as having a window to an ocean in the bathroom of your spaceship can lead to stopping a lightning generator on a Dyson sphere. Also has the ridiculous and versatile ludicrous mage.

    Champions, because the GM becomes so fucking pissed the longer you play.

    "how many dice do you need to roll now?"
    "12"
    "God fucking damn it"
