Quote from: Steve DustinUnless that system did something different in gameplay (like Over the Edge) then why not D20?Take care,Steve Dustin
Quote from: ValamirTo what degree is the obsession (in some circles) with doing everying in d20 stiffling design in the sense that we're seeing fewer (if we are) truly original and unique systems designed for a specific setting vs. seeing as many settings as possible d20ed.Or, are we instead seeing settings that wouldn't otherwise get made (like Nyambe, and probably Slaine) get made simply because of the attention boost they'll get by being d20?
Quote from: Blake HutchinsDream Pod 9, frex, will evidently publish a d20 version of Silhouette with their Core Rules book in 2003.
Quote from: xiombargSpycraft is the opposite side of the this syndrome, but still bad. There's a lot of love, but the fact of the matter is that d20 is not a terribly good match for the spy genre. Sure, if you start out as higher-level characters it's better, but this feels like a kluge.
Quote from: contracycleTo say that a game, frex Nayambe, would not have been produced were it not for d20 begs the question: WAS it produced? I don;t know from whence Nyambe derives, but is the final product what the writer intended, or is that what was produced after it went through the brand-coherence grinder? Was Nyambe really produced, or was a pale d20 shadow of Nyambe produced? Could anyone see d20 Sorceror, or d20 Nobilis? I can't.
Quote from: b_bankheadWhere is this 'if it weren't for D20 it would happen" come from?
Quote from: ValamirIs it better to have a pale d20 shadow of Nyambe than no Nyambe at all.
Quote from: Steve DustinWhy would I need another system to do that?I think D20's a better route then re-inventing the wheel yet again. Unless that system did something different in gameplay (like Over the Edge) then why not D20?
