Now. Click on those links and drag out your wallet. Or hit your library. Or borrow them from that friend who always buys books but never reads them, like Gatsby.
Regardless of your methods, I now assume you're familiar with the world described in those five (so far) books. I don't know about you, but I started thinking about playing in that world before I was fifty pages into the first book.
I thought, "You know, this reminds me so much of The Riddle of Steel."
Then I thought, "Maybe this is my excuse to finally run Burning Wheel."
Then I thought, "You know, GURPS 4e could probably handle everything this world can throw at it."
And then I thought, and thought, and thought some more, and now I'm all thought out. There are tons of options, and many of them are excellent. But I'm spoiled for choice - I can't decide and the arguments in my head have all started to repeat themselves.
So now I want to know - What system would you run a game in this setting with? In your answer, please explain:
- What system you would choose
- What about the system makes it fit the world
- Why you would choose that game over all others
