RPG Systems I own

Thought I’d write up a short list of RPG systems I still own, in the order I find them on the shelves I’m looking at.

  • Dungeons and Dragons Basic (Red), Expert (Blue), Companion (Green), Master (Black) and Immortals (Gold) boxed sets
    Played and run, a lot.  The first few years of my roleplaying were dominated by D&D.
  • Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (1st Edition)
    Mostly messed about with this.  I don’t have the Players Handbook, not sure I ever did.  I seem to recall we hacked some adventures together by mixing this up with the D&D stuff we did.
  • Call of Cthulhu d20
    Don’t think I ever ran this in the end, I preferred the original rules.
  • Judge Dredd d20
    Never played it.
  • The Wheel of Time d20
    Played it very briefly, didn’t really get into it that much.
  • EverQuest Role Playing Game
    Never played it, was too busy being addicted to the MMORPG that spawned it.
  • Star Wars d20 Revised Core Rulebook
    Never played this incarnation.
  • Call of Cthulhu Edition 5.5 (Softback)
    Loved it, lived it.  Played it (with a few superb GM’s) and ran it a few times.
  • S.L.A. Industries
    Never played it.
  • Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
    Played it loads, loved it a great deal, and ran it a few times.
  • Paranoia 2nd Edition
    Ran it a couple of times, once successfully, once terribly.
  • Legend of the Five Rings 2nd Edition
    Played it quite a bit, never ran it.
  • Dragon Lords of Melnibone d20
    Never played it.
  • Ars Magica 4th Edition
    Ran a game for a short while, pretty heavy going.
  • Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 2nd Edition
    Played it more than anything else I’ve ever played.  Ran it more than anything else I’ve ever run.
  • Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 3rd Edition
    Played and ran it quite a lot recently.
  • Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 3.5
    Never used this incarnation.
  • Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition
    Playing it as we speak.
  • Shadowrun 2nd Edition
    Played and ran this version, liked it a lot as long as we ignored net runners.
  • Shadowrun 3rd Edition
    Never played this incarnation.
  • Middle Earth Roleplaying 2nd Edition
    Played it quite a bit, never ran it.
  • RUNE
    Never used.
  • Star Wars d20
    Played it a little bit.
  • Star Wars 2nd Edition (d6)
    Played more than the d20 version, and think it’s better.
  • Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia
    I needed to own this incarnation of D&D.
  • Advanced RuneQuest
    Got this cheap in a sale, never had RuneQuest, never played 🙂
  • Vampire the Masquerade
    Never played.
  • d20 Modern
    Played a little bit.
