I've been playing tabletop RPGs since the early '80s, mostly as a GM. Currently I'm playing D&D 5 and am running a Basic Roleplaying apocalypse-in-progress campaign.

I also run a site that helps people learn to play tabletop RPGs, and another that provides tabletop RPG news.

comment Which role-playing systems might be best suited for use over a road-trip?
Better late than never. Years ago a friend and I played a Shadowrun game over the course of three days of driving. For dice rolling we used a Tupperware box. I mention Shadowrun not because it was particularly well-suited to this style of play, but because it wound up working well anyway. The trick was that we both had been playing Shadowrun together for quite some time, so the rules didn't really matter. It also helps that we confined ourselves to the core rulebook; looking through a half dozen books for some obscure bit of information is no fun.

comment What are the changes between editions?
From the Kickstarter page for 7th edition: "It's important to note that the 7th Edition rules remain backwards compatible so that previously published scenarios and source books all remain playable with the revised rules."
