I am merely curious what folks might want to see.

Obviously, some of these are already revived elsewhere while others are licenses WotC no longer holds, but I included all the ones I could think of. I may have missed one or two so use Other in those cases.

For my part: Star Frontiers and Gamma World. I am okay with either built on the 5E engine, or something new, and I would sell family members to eb able to work on GW (I wrote and designed some for the GW d20 PHB and I am still proud of that work).

I would love to see a new wotc Star Wars project. I haven't been satisfied with any fan project I've seen, I don't like Fantasy Flight's RPG design work at all, and I have a hard time playing Saga Edition without wanting to dig into the system and edit a lot of it*.

I didn't vote for Alternity simply because it's already being done and it looks like a good update.

Star Frontiers I'm not even that familiar with, but I voted for it because I would just love to see more 5e in space.

Gamma World! I love the 4e Gamma World, so I'm happy with that, but I'd love to see a new take just for the heck of it!

*I'd reduce the hell out of talent and feat trees, folding many of the "this sucks but what you get later that requires this is really good" talents and feats into the thing they are a prereq for, for instance.
 


High Adventure Cliffhangers Buck Rogers Adventure Game, a Buck Rogers RPG based on the original comic strips. (Would never happen though due to the ownership of the propert)

Boot Hill (as a "Weird West" thing), Gamma World, Star Frontiers, Star Wars, and I'll throw in Wheel of Time and Urban Arcana, would be fantastic 5E Setting books done in the style of Ravnica/Eberron/Theros.

TSR did Star Wars????

WEG did Star Wars

WotC did D20 Star Wars (including Star Wars Saga Edition)...

don't recall a TSR Star Wars RPG...

PS: Voted for Star Frontiers, Gamma World, and Marvel Super Heroes.
 

I miss the alien races from d20 Future, but the racial traits were not enough interesting for me.

Hasbro would like a Marvel RPG but the d20 system isn't ready yet for current age technology, and worse the power balance with superheroes. A WotC superheroes isn't easy to be enough compatible with d20.

I was gonna vote for Alternity too until I realised it was being done as well by Sasquatch games. I look at the quick start briefly yesterday but the books were only available in pdf on Drivethru RPG, I couldnt find anything about hard cover books.

Alternity was great. We played a campaign where we just ran around our neighborhood causing havoc. D20 Modern was really fun too. Other than D&D and Star Wars those were the two we played the most.

Yeah, I don't know why I put Star Wars on the list either, especially considering I STILL run WEG d6 fairly regularly.

Hardcopy was available through the kickstarter.

This I found on Amazon...

I seem to be in a minority: I picked my favorite Star Wars rpg, Top Secret, Marvel, and Buck Rogers!

Top Secret. Definitely Top Secret.

Listen to me, Hillary. I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist, only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island, who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground.
 




Top Secret was fun, but it was also the kind of game that works best when you ignore 90% of the rules and just ad hoc everything. I distinctly remember doing 10 damage to a thug's head with a shotgun (this required rolling 0 for location and 0 for damage, both on a d10). Body parts normally only have 4 hit points in Top Secret....

Gamma World was all about the setting. I don't even remember the mechanics. Some throwaway D&D clone as I recall, but the setting was pretty great and focused on the bizarre and surreal.

Boot Hill, conversely and appropriately, was all about dying under a hail of gunfire. That's mostly what happened.

I never got in to Alternity, though I remember hearing good things. All I remember about Marvel was that it wasn't hard to be super overpowered. I only played WEG Star Wars. The rest I don't think I was aware of. Maybe Conan, but I never played it or saw it for sale.

Frankly, I'd rather run Savage Worlds than any of the above rules sets. Some of them have interesting settings, but I don't remember any of them having good rules. SW has great pulpy rules for these sorts of settings.
