#RPGaDay 18: Favorite Game System

This is another thing I waffle on a lot, but right now my favorite system is the one they use in the Doctor Who RPG, the Vortex System. It just seems like it always delivers a lot for even a little effort on my part. It has great character options, leaves plenty of room for creativity, is easy to prep, easy to run, easy to teach, and lots of fun to play with. 


  1. I am so fickle when it comes to RPG systems that it drives me crazy. I cycle through a few favorites, which include in no particular order [True20, Savage Worlds, D6, Ubiquity, Fate, and sometimes even GURPS!]. Lately I rediscovered how wonderful Vortex is. Curious if you're still into that system.

    1. I've been fickle for the past few years. The funny thing about your question is that, for a while, I had drifted a little away from this. I hadn't stopped using it, but I'm not sure I'd have called it my favorite. Just recently I came back to it, and I think I'm going to settle on Vortex for a while, for pretty much anything that's not 4-color superhero or D&D. Jumping around was making convention games more stressful than they ought to be. I guess I'm a little worn out with learning new systems, and Vortex feels really comfortable.
