    I want smaller, leaner core books.

    Hmmm... after reading through this thread I feel I must be the oddball. I don’t care how big the core book is - but I want the core of the rules to be fairly small and concise. The TinyD6 games are a good example of this. Tiny Dungeons is over 200 pages, but the “rules” are only around 80 pages...

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    What programs do you use when playing on-line?

    If I run Discord in a web browser (instead of the client app), I actually use a different browser than what Roll20 is running in. This way, if something goes pear-shaped in one I can close and reopen the browser and not lose both sessions.

    Best Way to Find New Players

    I’ve had the best luck with meetup.com (Which has usually involved starting up a new “Roleplaying Gamers In {your city here}” group, promoting it in groups for other nearby towns, and then waiting a few weeks.

    Besides D&D, what are you playing?

    No D&D here. Champions, Justice Inc (6th ed Hero System), and Savage Worlds. Thinking about starting up another game, and a D&D retro-clone is under consideration, or maybe Fate - depends on which the group chooses.

    I think my personal favorite might actually not be Gamma World, but Mutant Future, which is a Gamma World inspired Labyrinth Lord derivative.

    Worlds of Design: "Your Character Wouldn't Do That"

    I’m in a fuzzy grey area here. I don’t think I’ve ever used that actual phrase, but I’ll flip the question around. I will not accept “it’s what my character would do” as an excuse for being a jerk or deliberately disrupting a game.
