Greetings, my name is Carl. I started with BECMI back in the early 80's. I preferred it over AD&D 1e. Didn't get much into 2e. Just finished a 3.5 campaign earlier this year. Wasn't impressed with 4e and I haven't really sat down to play 5e yet.

I've also played FASA Star Trek RPG and loved it. Played some Decipher Star Trek. I haven't had a chance to try the Modipeus Star Trek Adventures. Loved playing D6 Star Wars from WEG. Did some short stints with GURPS, Marvel Superheroes, Spycraft 2.0, Twilight 2000, It Came from the Late Late Show and more. I'm a little intrigued by Dungeon Crawl Classics, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

Two years ago my brother asked me to introduce his kids to role playing games. I found Basic Fantasy and thought it would be a good introduction for them so I downloaded the game. It had the shine of BECMI that I started with and some additional options. Just yesterday I purchased the print book from Amazon.

Be well,
