    It never ceases to amaze me how attached people can be to "their" RPG system. d20/DnD is the biggest culprit by far, of course, but there's definitely someone out there trying to run a full medieval fantasy by tweaking VtM.

    I mean, the Dark Ages World of Darkness line is a thing.
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    The Storytelling System is also surprisingly flexible. While my system of choice to adapt to other settings was Star Wars D6, I've played in several games which used SS, and even made some adaptations myself.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    Basically, it's just more convenient for most players to work with one system they like rather than learn a new one that might not be as enjoyable or see as much use. It's not unlike Apple purists, or Microsoft fans, or what have you. Most people pick one they know and like and stick with, modified to fit their needs. Likewise, when you have a big player base for one system, it makes it easier to get a game together. And if it has a lot of official content and available homebrew?

    People love their games. Some are better at specific things than others, definitely. But most people don't give enough of a shit about what they're playing to go looking for the perfect experience for a given genre. They just want to have fun with friends in a game they all know, can play, and like.

    That's really what people are attached to; the experience. The system is just a symbol of it. New ones take more work and may not be as good an experience as the tried-and-true one they already know.

    I don't know who, if anyone, might be interested in this, but I would be remiss not to share it. Excellent work.

    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Maybe it's just me but high fantasy trappings aside GBF's world is one of the best sandboxes you could ever want for a campaign. Your players are always on the move, so there's always new opportunities to drop new plot hooks or pick up old ones. You can make quests of the week for as long as you can come up with new island names, or make a grand overarching plotline with world-shaking impact. You can throw in literally any theme, from gothic horror to raygun sci-fi just by changing locations and throwing the Astrals/Moondwellers/a Primal in. It's great.

    Also the guys who wrote this made Bardbarian into an actual character concept and if you don't love it we can't be friends

    Lots of repetition in those questions. Especially those 20-35 group which is the same questions worded differently 3 times in a row.

    That's intentional. All good surveys do that, to minimize the risk of leading questions changing the subjects' responses.
