Games I'd Like to Play

I run an awful lot of games. Unfortunately, most of my gaming time is spent being the GM, rather than being a player.

Inspired by this post by +Douglas Cole and this follow-up by +Peter V. Dell'Orto, here is a list of games I'd like to play if I got the chance.


I've run a good amount of GUMSHOE (Ashen Stars, Night's Black Agents, TimeWatch) but I've only ever played in a couple of +TimeWatch RPG games at conventions. I would love to play in a Night's Black Agents campaign, or even better, Mutant City Blues.

D&D Fifth Edition

This is the new hotness. I'm impressed with the material available so far, and I'm planning a game of my own. I would love to try it out as a player, though.


I actually play in a regular online game every other week, but I always want more GURPS. What I'd really love is a high-powered fantasy game, mixing Divine Favor, the Sorcery rules from Pyramid, and chi-based powers and Imbuements for martial characters. I'm actually tempted to run this game, but I'd rather be able to play in it.


Again, I run an awful lot of Fate but never get the chance to play. I am itching to try Atomic Robo, and I love the look of a lot of the things coming down the pipeline on the Evil Hat Patreon.

Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.

Discworld RPG Review

The Discworld Roleplaying Game is a standalone fantasy RPG written by Phil Masters with rules based on GURPS Fourth Edition by Steve Jackson Games. It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
