This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Since we've been discussing lately games which drove us away due to the great amount of mechanical prep, it seemed like a good time to discuss the games which we can prep stuff for easily.

My king right now is 4th-ED D&D. I'm running a successful game with players up around 4th level, and if I need to create something on-the-fly the DMG has a ton of tools to help out - from a random dungeon generator to room contents to "package" of monsters encountered (wolf pack, dragon's den, double line, etc.) or traps set, etc.

And with 4th, I'm finding it bleedingly easy to "reskin" monsters as often as necessary - a young green dragon became the "Great Old Pumpkin" monster around Hallowe'en, with special effects on its attacks changed as necessary.

So, what games do you find are easy to prep for? Ones you don't spend 45 hours running the numbers for?
