I have the next four days off, so I might look around some for more information. Or just play the new used video games I bought.
Hairy, yeah, I've only ever read the rules on one system that wasn't d20 based and that was for Little Fears, which uses dice pools. But I have been making a list of things to look into. Also found some interesting stuff when I googled "free table top games". Also, dumb question. In those percentile ones, do you just use the d% dice or is there some kind of special hundred sided die that actually rolls well that people use for those games? Cause my d100 rolled for crap and never stopped.
Beorning: a friend of a friend of mine had a Call of Cthulhu book and wanted to run it, but we were all tired and hung over that day. And the one who actually owned the book was super annoying so we didn't see him after like the day he was visiting.
Kylie, while I might be down to try something like this, I think with the current people I have in my gaming group, dice are necessary to hold attention a bit more and I feel like without more rules and crunch, they would get a bit out of hand, honestly. For the people I do my favorite hobby in the world with, they sure annoy the ever-loving hell out of me. And they would probably be "too cool" for it.
On another note, last night, I decided to try and take a stab at an idea I had to work out the mechanics of it. I didn't get that far, as I was really really tired, but it was a fun little exercise. Just hard to work it quite the way I wanted to. This first trial seems to be too numbers heavy.
