RPG a Day - Day 15: Which RPG do you enjoy adapting the most?

posted Aug 15, 2017, 3:28 AM by James Pearson
Back in the day it used to be GURPS.  However, these days I have two current favorites, Savage Words, QAGS and D6xD6.  We've been playing Savage Worlds for a while now, and with it's breadth of published settings, it's fairly easy to adapt something quickly to whatever setting you like.   One of my favorite adapatations was for my Thundarr the Barbarian game (which I'll be running again at GameHole Con in November).

However, my current favorite is Lester Smith's D6xD6.  As I'm all about rules-lite games right now, and this game is that!  However, it's system is flexible because of its simplicity.  So, a few minor tweaks and it's adaptable to just about anything, without a lot of work.   I'll be running "Tales from the Terror Tomb", my adaptation of horror anthology comics such as House of Mystery, Witching Hour, and of course Tales from the Crypt, at GameHole Con in November and GaryCon in March.  Oh, and also (for something a little more tongue-in-cheek), I'll also be running a silly scenario called Slashers vs. Killer Klowns, also a D6xD6 game.
