I have always been a sci-fi fan, thanks in part to Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Terminator and the like. My friends and I always were playing the parts of rebel freedom fighters or people surviving in the wilderness against all odds.
The beauty of this is the unlimited gaming potential. Miniatures, terrain and etc are at our disposal. The thing I have been in search of is a new gaming system.
Mission 1 ... Finding a Rule system.
Thanks to my friend Mik and Savage Tim (Both whom have blogs I follow) I have been looking and researching a couple of rule systems with flexible rules and designs. FATE is a free online rule system based off FUDGE. I have downloaded the PDF and am currently researching as we speak. The 2nd rule system is Savage Worlds. I have the Test Drive rules and plan to look them over as well.
Does anyone have experience in these rule systems ? Does anyone have good or bad things to say ?
Once I figure out a rule system to use, we will discuss the development of the world which it will be used.
Hope all is well .... Keep the paint flowing and the dice rolling ...
