Two weeks ago, we asked one of the big questions: what RPGs are you playing? Unsurprisingly, given our audience, the vote was overwhelmingly in favor of D&D 4e, with nearly 300 votes (72% of total votes) cast. Second place was the sum total of all systems not listed, with third place being older editions of D&D with 100 votes (or 24% of voters). Third place was any flavor of Star Wars. If you want to eliminate D&D and all d20 games from the equation, all the members of the World of Darkness come up next with Savage Worlds close behind.
Apologies to those of you who tried to vote but couldn’t- we had some bugs related to some new security features, but thanks to Eric, those should be ironed out now. (Do let us know if there’s anything else still not working for you!)
During the week in which that question was asked, we ran a week of homebrew rules, some advice, and even a mini-game. In case you missed it:
- Classless 4e by Matt James
- Beginner’s Guide to Homebrewing by Scott Wallace
- Monstrous Races in 4E D&D – Githyanki by Bartoneus
- Arena 4e by Dixon Trimline
- E11 – 4e Gritty Heroic Roleplay by The Game (me) and with assistance from The Main Event
I hope you enjoyed it- if you’d like to see more like that, or have any other ideas for theme weeks, let us know. And to close out the homebrew week, I ask the following question in relation:
