    What about Hell on Earth, Macho Women with Guns, Aftermath, Rifts, or After the Bomb? Only two of them had a d20 adaptation.

    Most 'realistic': Aftermath. Man you could get very depressed playing that game. Not D20, but worth a mention.

    Most gonzo/fantastic: Gamma World. Because nothing is better than battling Hoops mounted on giant mutant seagulls.

    Best 'toolkit': D20 Apocalypse, They squeezed a lot of great ideas into a very small package with that lil' book. A true gem. I still want to run a game with a rogue planet disrupting Earth or a post-Rapture Angels vs. demons scenario.

    Best overall d20 treatment: Darwin's World. I just loved those books, and even if you didn't want to use their 'world' you could get a lot of mileage out of the various stuff they put in.
    Playing pretend since 1979.

    I'm still waiting for GURPS Survivors.

    C'mon, SJ! 2012 is coming, it's a hot genre again!

    DW 2.0 is one of the better things to have come out of the d20 "boom". It still holds up well.

    If you aren't playing Apocalypse World right now to satisfy your cravings for roleplaying apocalypse goodness... you should be.

    It's not d20. It's just better.

    Download the character playbooks, and if you aren't intrigued, I'll take you out for a beer (or coke of you prefer) if you're ever in town (Louisville, KY).

    And they better get it into print soon or we won't have enough time until gaming is the least of our thoughts...

    I pulled out my copy and started reading. There's a lot of great stuff in there, even if I think the authors get a little long winded sometimes. I am toying with the idea of applying the Pathfinder elements/fixes to it/d20 Modern.

    Has anyone looked at Modern20 and it's associated PA book?

    You now officially owe me a beer. Let it be noted.

    Next time I head for the US of A, that is. . .

    Meh, when the first sentence I read has a curse word, then f-bombs are found through out elsewhere, I have been preemptively fired as a customer before even me buying in.

    Yeah, man! Just send me a note when you get here. I'll run the game for you too if you'd try it.

    Apologies! I should have warned you that this game is definitely "Rated R". There is sex, drugs, violence, and cursing. Definitely cursing. This the RPG that'd be on HBO, not ABC. It is the apocalypse - life is all scarcity and brutality, it makes for some harsh characters.

    I forgot to mention, Chatty DM has posted his thoughts on Apocalypse World recently if you're interested in taking a look from a d20 gamer's point of view.
