I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

comment A fantasy system with similar dicerolling and levels of success as World of Darkness
@Dom Well, I'm sure others will answer this question as well with different suggestions. Perhaps one of them will be the right system for you and your group.

comment A fantasy system with similar dicerolling and levels of success as World of Darkness
@Dom It certainly has rules for medieval-style combat, swords, and armor. Because the focus of the game is on mages, it approaches the question of magical items from a creator standpoint — you can have a Wonder that's a sword, or a candle, or an enchanted steed, and it will explain how you'd create one in the system.

comment How do Geniuses and Hunters interact?
@Yamikuronue You're correct; there's nothing supernatural about a profession -- it's a way of giving depth to characters that would be otherwise mechanically ordinary. Having read both games, I believe that the intent is preserved by treating hunters without Endowments as "lacking a Template," despite using the templating system to build them as per The World of Darkness and H:tV.
