    TBBT is a sitcom. Sitcoms are generally the same, just the characters change. There have been sitcoms featuring wartime medics, upper class toffs, pretty people in New York, and everything in between. The characters are always the butt of the joke. This time it was scientists. The fact that geeks finding scientists in the same mainstream sitcoms as everybody else gets them upset kinda...

    I'm going to do two systems here, because there's always the question of "Favorite system for what?". Anyway, let's start with generic fantasy/sci-fi. HARP 1. Mixed-races are not presented as full races, they're made either with exactly one or two blood talents or exactly one or two genetic adaptation racial/species talent swaps. 2. Sure, it's class/level based (Professions), but that's...

    BTRC's TimeLords 2E (1990) Conceptually, it's nice, does a fair explanation of paradox free time-travel (all time travel is by definition also probability travel so you don't end up in the same place when the Earth isn't in that place and so on). Playing as yourself with various tests to get your stats is interesting as well. The problem is that the RAW tries to model reality too well,...

    To add to Staffan's answer, there's a reason the system is called RuneQuest. For the default magic system, you need to have a rune for that spell. If you want to cast a more powerful version of that spell, you need more/higher powered runes of the same spell. This makes spells a progression. As a contrast, in older editions of D&D, a caster could learn Monster Summoning/Summon Nature's...

    I'm only going to address question #1. While I have not played Runequest, I currently have a few books and while character creation is a little interesting, I really can't get by the way the default magic system works. The version I have is the first edition that Mongoose Publishing put out.

    See Burst attacks on page 99. Area attacks use a single attack roll (in this case AGI (throwing) or similar) vs VITAL DEFENSE of all targets, and a single damage roll. Otherwise it is resolved just like any other attack roll.

    It's not like a car. It's much more subjective and much more of an art. You can directly and objectively measure a car's horsepower or weight, but you can't do that with an RPG. I don't think anything can substitute for actually trying the thing. All the graphs in the world won't give you a sense of how you feel when you play the game.
