Day 17: Favorite Fantasy RPG
You'd think this would be an easy one for me. (Bol, BoL, BoL!!!) But it's not. I love Barbarians of Lemuria. I've probably refered to it as my favorite game. But...I have an abiding love for Melee/Wizard/Heroes & Other Worlds. Early loves are hard to shake and Heroes & Other Worlds just increased that love. And it's not one I want to shake. And then there's my new love, Basic D&D of the Moldvay variety. I did not play it back then. I went from Holmes to AD&D. I wish I had played Moldvay back then. Simple and straightforward. As many others have said, we didn't play AD&D with all of the rules. Not even close. So when I finally did read Moldvay it was closer to what we were playing anyway.
So, a very hard decision that I don't feel like making now.
