Talk about vitriol. That is about the single nastiest thing I have read on this board. Yah, that's pretty rude, alright. Though it hasn't led to the closing of this thread or your banning. True. However, that's "merely" being rude. As M. Sprange mentioned previously, they're moderating topics based...

I'm not going to get into another argument over this, especially with someone who has expressed their complete and utter distaste for the game and given their grand exit speech. Pardon? You realize this is SteveMND, and not Atgxtg, right? :) I never stated that I had 'complete and utter distaste' f...

I'll tell you. And this is the first time I've spoken of this to anyone. What? No it isn't. It's different terminology, but it's still the basic message you've been saying since you got here -- the "Old Guard" are inventing problems where there aren't any, and are the cause for all the world's woes...

That's something of a jump and almost insulting, considering there are only two of us that post here. Only two may post here, but I am quite certain plenty more out there keep tabs on the forum. Regardless, I believe my comments were not a jump, nor insulting, and certainly not meant to be either. ...

Even if I have never done so, I am prety sure more than one person did, and look, you are still here and not banned. Yet, as Mr. Sprange himself said, the posts they are concerned over and deleting are not the ones where the people are saying things about other people, or about the company, etc. Ra...

So much for a "last hurrah and final shoutout", eh? I knew you'd be back. Heh, hardly. I did say I might stop in once in a while, and I have, about once a week. This time corresponded to a post I thought had some salient points embedded in it, which is why I was surprised when it was deleted. Since...

Note I'm not supporting extensive censorship, but this is Mongoose's house and we are given leave to post here by Mongoose. I won't deny they of course have the option of doing that. However, if this indeed is a case of them deleting a thread merely because it disagreed with their products, then it...

Another missing thread?

Okay, have I gone blind, or has another thread critical of the MRQ system -- the one named "Companion, No Thanks" IIRC -- been deleted? I've been following it fairly closely today (since it contained probably my first post here in two or three weeks), and it never seemed to get close to the sort of ...

Yeah, I thought so. I think the issue I've seen here tends to be the fact that it is much of the core rules of the game that are being houseruled, as opposed to merely houseruling things to make the game better fit your play style or campaign concept. In the past, I've almost never met a GM who did...

Left leg, always the left leg.
There's a reason why the most famous tavern in Pavis is called "Gimpy's," after all. Presumably, it was a case of the rules really being written to reflect the game world... :)

Thanks guys, but I'm afraid the Companion wouldn't be enough for me to stick around for. The core rules of the new system simply aren't for me, and so I don't see any reason why options and add-ons for those core rules would somehow make the base more palatable. :) As I've said before, I didn't real...

Last hurrah and a final shoutout

Well, for weeks now, i had been saying that I was going to wait until I finally saw the SRD before making my final decision on whether or not MRQ is the game I was hoping it would be. The other day, the public SRD was made available, and I spend much of the intervening time poring through it, gettin...

Sad eh? Not really; at least yours actually got to see the light of day. My Epic Campaign World has as yet never been used in an actual campaign, because I never feel I'm done with it yet (that anal-retentive perfectionist streak in me)... I'm begining to think at this point it's simply turned into...

Fair enough, but it looks like the Companion will be filled with more setting-neutral rules options, as opposed to anything specific. Stuff like divine magic, sorcery, etc. That still strikes me as material that would have been just as useful in comprehensive volume. Again, I realize it's all person...

A true geek would never be seen dead playing a game someone else had written, instead they would be continually playtesting and refining their own 10,000 page ruleset that they have been working on for the past eight years - the one stored in a set of thirty colour-coded ring binders with handwritt...

I also reckon it would hurt longer-term sales once the variant campaign worlds come out. I'm still curious -- whay would you say that? I'm thinking if the Companion had been rolled into the Players book at only a 50% jump in price, the variant rules and such presumably coming up in there would have...

the fact it if Mongoose had brought out a single book four times the size and three times the price there's a reasonable chance I wouldn't have bought it.
I'm curious actually -- what if had been twice the size and only 50% more expensive?

No RPG Ruleset will enhance one's street cred.
Absolutely. I think the question would be better posed as whether or not MRQ will enhance or hurt one's geek cred... :)

A shared world concept like this is always a lot of fun. For a time, I had a scifi setting operating in the same line, with an emphasis on hard scifi as opposed to soft. It was a lot of fun, although it sort of petered out after a year or so. I'd certainly be interested, if it wasn't for the fact th...
