Thanks. :)

So... are you still bringing the casserole?

Overall, right now I have to say that WFRP (2nd ed.) is my fav.

Yes it has orcs, knights, and bastard swords in it.  But as a game, it's a seroius groin-kick to any 'powergamer'.

Disease, insanity, paranoia, nasty infected stomach wounds ... WFRP has it all.

(Having said that, I also like Angel, True20, C&C, and RC D&D a lot too!  I guess I'm only marginally porcine.)

Bah, ya buncha pansies!

:emot-sissies:

I play D20 DnD and I'm proud of it! My exceptionally masculine half-orc barbarian will wield his great axe in a violent orgy of backlash against the man-hating feminist forces seeking to deprive the male gender of his gods-given rightful place as ruler and owner of all existence. Our AoOs and lack of petty "social" rules (as well as overwhelming market-share) mean might will always be right and the iron fist of our male-dominated military regime will always rule.

Ottomsoh the Elderly:
I like to explore the angsty themes of finding a safe place in a harsh, violent, decadent, cosmopolite society where might makes right and religions are created to give moral authority to the patriarchs for their oppression of the defenseless folk. There's also some forays into the objectification of women -- more generally, of youth and feminity.

The game that explores these themes the best is, of course, D&D, as it is centered on them. Plus it's fun to bash and slash ghouls and gnolls and pretend it's actually intellectual wanking about the intolerance of the self-rightous vigilantes against the oppressed minorities of anthropophagic decaying walking dead (a metaphor for the goth subculture) and manged hyena-ish monsters (a metaphor for the furry subculture).
