Lord of the Hidden Layer
I voted for Gamma World. But 5e isn't ready yet: it needs psionics (a.k.a. Mental Mutations) rules and future tech rules.
So it's going to be a while. -sigh-

re: multiple rules editions
Gamma World has become a background setting or concept, independent of any particular rules system.


Back in the day I played Boot Hill, Gamma World and Top Secret.

D&D always beat them out for time and creative investment.

I'd like to see both Top Secret and Gamma World again. Boot Hill I can do without...never had the itch to strap on my spurs and six guns (and I think Deadlands/Savage Worlds has that area covered pretty well now).

DragonQuest, though fondly remembered, was an SPI game. TSR acquired SPI, so it's not quite the same thing. Would Wizards publish multiple fantasy RPGs?

Skills. Essentially fixed hit points. Wonky colleges of magic. I would like to see it again.

Of course they wouldn't publish it. People have been trying it from them for years, but WotC prefers to their ****ish ways, sittings on beloved IP to reduce the competition in the marketplace (one of the reasons I feel our IP laws in the US need to be rewritten).

Seems like the thread should have properly been titled "What TSR-era TSR title should get a reboot."

I was going to say Traveller, but that wasn't on the list.
