This has certainly been an interesting week. I am working on some Fantasy Adventures, and I wanted to get a feel for what roleplaying system you, my potential customers, would like to play besides whatever system I would make for them. The results so far have been surprising. We have a total of 30 votes so far, and would like to see more before this poll finishes on December 4th.
So far, the leading game system is FATE, by Evil Hat Productions. They have accumulated a total of 12 votes.
The second-highest is Goodman Games’ Dungeon Crawl Classics system with 7 and one-half votes. It wasn’t part of the original line-up, but became a serious write-in candidate when it took an early lead before FATE overtook it. There is a half vote because one of the voters also put down Swords & Wizardry White Box as one of their choices. What surprises me so much is that I have presented Dramatic Games as progressive in game design, and find that there is so much interested in retro-games.
The race isn’t over yet, so if you haven’t voted for your favorite Open Source Roleplaying System yet, please do so!
