Tabletop/P&P RPG Recommendations?
« on: August 08, 2009, 07:13:16 PM »
So, I've been curious about RPGs for a while, but I'm not really sure where to start at. I know D&D is the original and the de facto standard, but I also know there are plenty of others (I alreay have an Arcana Unleashed reference book that I bought ages ago because I thought the spells in it were pwn), but I'm not really familiar with them or their comparative merits. Can anyone with experience shed some light for me?

I've played a little D&D 3.5, and I like it a lot. Though I've heard pathfinder is better and the sourcebooks are more organized (you don't have to hunt through 5 different manuals just to take your first level as a wizard, lol) Pathfinder is pretty much a rebalanced of D&D 3.5 (a rule set I find really fun), and I've heard by a few of my tabletop obsessed friends its better. So I recommend pathfinder.

Interesting, thanks. I checked their site and apparently it's very, very modern (the official release is this month), so I'll be sure to look in to it. ;)

Dark Heresy is Warhammer 40K's P&P RPG. Me and Aqua played it(for like...a couple weeks lol we never got far into it) and it was pretty fun. I played it again recently and it's still as good as it ever was.
