L5R 5E or FFG/Edge Star Wars... the different flavors of the FFG Narrative Dice SystemWhat's your favorite crunchy game?
Crunch that enables player contributions, crunch that makes prep less needed.What kind of crunch do you like?
Absolutely. The question for me is not "Is it crunchy?" so much as "Is the Crunch Useful to me?"Is it okay for a game to be crunchy in one area and not in others?
YZE has a fairly rules-lite approach overall, but adds some crunch for combat, and more for whatever's thematic to the adaptation. And it works,
Genesys/FFG SW pushes my limits on character crunch... but the useful task crunch works for me.
2d20 STA is right in that spot where the task process really is the majority of the game, and it is just inside my tolerances.
Only to a point. Burning Wheel, great as it is, is a toolkit, and that's part of why it's not listed above for me... In running BWR/BWG, I learned a lot... and came to realize there are places I like crunch and places I don't.Preferable?
I absolutely need a unified task system for new games... 2d20, YZE(d6), YZE(2dxy), many flavors of Traveller, Genesys/Star Wars, L5R 5E, L5R 1E/3E... Burning Wheel, too.
But I don't really need the BW/BE level of charachter advancement crunch.
