I have been running role playing games now for about 4 or 5 years, and my system of choice by far is Savage Worlds. I've played in and run games using a number of others, but none I have used so far clicks quite so well. I enjoy running games far more than I do playing in them, and my greatest experience so far has been a long running zombie apocalypse game that recently concluded.

I currently run several games - A Deadlands Reloaded campaign, a Hellfrost campaign, and I am just gearing up to start something using Unknown Armies, a completely new system to me.

comment What do I need to consider running an open table dungeon crawl at a multi-day convention?
I think that opens up a great deal of complexity from your perspective as GM, and would make it much harder to plan for and balance. Depending on the system you choose to use, I would just have a range of characters that have different levels of inherent complexity in their use, and try and get a sense from players as to how experienced they are when they come to the table and how much you think they will be able to take on. I personally wouldn't remove the XP lock because of the difficulties it would introduce, but if you do then there's some sound advice in some of the other answers.

comment Should a GM seek to share costs?
this depends on soooooo many factors, particularly around the way your group works, the backgrounds of individuals in the group, their financial situations, whether people are friends, etc etc etc, I'm afraid I'm voting to close as primarily opinion based. It might be rescuable with a lot more specifics about your individual situation and group though

comment What spell to use in conjunction with “Teleport, Greater” to get sufficient information for the teleportation to succeed?
Can you add a little more detail to your answer please? Answers that rely solely on links for their information are generally not considered that great, as the link might break/change.

comment Do organized play leagues allow playing modules without keeping track of a character?
@SevenSidedDie not sure I agree with the tag changed edit - the tags you've deleted are relevant to the question...

Then I would suggest you include that detail in the question itself

For a 'good' answer, do you need to be able to give details for all of the systems you have referenced?

comment Looking for a free, easy-to-learn D&D-like game that can be run with limited materials
No, but you should add that detail into the criteria to make it clear what you mean

comment How do I avoid placing useless battle grid features?
Great answer, particularly the bit where you get your NPCs to show how valuable using terrain can be. The best way of showing players important tactics they could but don't use is to use them against the group and show how effective they are

comment Should plot-recurring characters always be Wild Cards?
My answer for this question would essentially be exactly the same as for rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/46399/…

comment How can I deal with players that get bored waiting for their turns playing online?
Great idea, but just a note - if you're going to be continuing with Savage Worlds then you'll need to think very carefully about an appropriate bonus if it is going to come up regularly. +1 in Savage Worlds is a really, really big deal.

@DanceSC Comments are not meant to be permanent, and answers in comments are very likely to get deleted. What you've written would make a really good answer. I'd strongly encourage you to turn it into one

@Julia that comment is probably worth editing into your question, as it gives more detail as to what you've tried so far.

@Jason_c_o I don't think this one can be solved by the Same-Page tool, as it isn't to do with a clash of gaming styles. As such, although there are a number of related and useful questions, I wouldn't say it is a duplicate
