Besides D&D, what are you playing?

We all love D&D and in this beautiful time, I think most play some of its variants (including PF and PF2).
But there is a world beyond that, so besides D&D what are you playing? what do you want to play?

I'm personally testing Symbaroum and Ironsworn, two really good games.
Particularly from Ironsworn, I think it's the best game I've played in a long time, and its free!

I'm NOT running D&D. Haven't in a couple years now.

Current games are Sentinel Comics RPG and ALIEN. SC works so much better FTF than VOIP that I am likely to put it on hiatus during the quarantine. (I've run it VOIP before.)

Alien, we'll see how tonight goes for the local group - 1 player has opted out. (The guy who bought 3 full sets of dice in the KS...).

I'm looking to branch out, though at the moment I am doing Traveller (both Classic and Five); also messing about with Antimatter Catalyzed Fusion, plus doing a spacecraft deck plans and stats (it's a 5k ton Battle-Mother named the Wolf Spider that carries 5 400 ton combat vessels). So there is a lot of work looking at the possible tech: Orion's Arm page on the subject the spacecraft in my setting are fusion torch-ships, and stack their decks like a skyscraper, unless smaller interface capable.

GURPS 4e. Running an Infinite Worlds/Cabal campaign that's coming to its end after 8 years, playing in an occult WWII campaign, and a Monster Hunters in weird Florida campaign.

Other than my current D&D5e campaign I have two on-and-off campaigns going on:

• Coriolis the Third Horizon (Free League). The characters are free traders (smugglers) who answered a distress call from a stranded ship. They saved the crew survivors. The engineer character found a large stash of drugs on the ship while repairing the environmental system. They players decided to steal the drugs. It went down hill from there. They did make a profit but now they have many enemies in the underworld and the authorities are looking for them. It's been one long chase scene over 7 sessions. Great fun to GM.

• Modern AGE (Green Ronin) 1910 Pulp alternate history located in Montreal, Canada. Each character has an innate special power. They are part of the Charlemagne Institute who investigate supernatural and weird science events.

I want to do a Forbidden Lands one shot in 2020.

Travaller! The GM went mad and bought all the content for Pirates of Drinax. Also, while I am running a 3.5 homebrew hexcrawl on roll20, we will be transitioning to Alien. I am keeping myself from even cracking the Alien book until we are close to done in the hexcrawl. I don't wanna get too excited and end the hexcrawl early.
 
Playing in a Blades in the Dark PbP on discord that just got underway.

Will soon be starting an Alien mini-campaign once I figure the logistics of running it online.

I also like Ironsworn and would like to try that, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. Same with Over the Edge....recently grabbed a copy and it seems cool and different, but I don’t know when I’ll have time to play it.

Right now playing in a Mage The Awakening game.

I am part of a gaming club that plays various short form Powered By The Apocalypse World games (1-6 sessions). So far we have done Masks, Freebooters, City of Mist, The Sprawl, World Wide Wrestling, and Headspace this year. We'll probably get to Pasión de las Pasiones (telenovela game), Monster of the Week, and hopefully Monsterhearts soon. I'd like more Masks and Blades in the Dark in my life.

When everything levels off I will probably work on getting a Sorcerer game off the ground.

I'm not playing or running anything at the moment, but I'm currently arm-wrestling with my friend over running his Savage Worlds game versus my D&D clone-in-progress.

Pathfinder 2E. Haven't played D&D in ages!
Many would count PF as D&D... many count a wide range of OSR games as D&D as well.

Not claiming you're wrong, just pointing out that playing a game that shares 99% of the tropes and abut 50% of the mechanical elements as a D&D edition is like saying, "I'm not using an 586 computer" when you're using an AMD k5 cpu.

So, a lot of Sci Fi games going on, right?

I wonder how modern AGE will be for a cyberpunk one-shot .

On the "narrative side", someone is playing Fate?

@Campbell if you are into PbtA games, I really insist you to take a look of Ironsworn. It was the PbtA game that he finally bought me.

Theres a guy here in town that just started up a game looking for players and I was thinking of trying it. I love the franchise, havent heard much about the mechanics though.

Oh and other then my Hunter game I just bought a strategy game called age of wonder planetfall thats taking up my free time during the corona vacation.
