comment Is there a trick to learning the Pacesetter/Goblinoid Action Table?
Thanks very much for the answer! I should note that it's not just the one action table, which I could probably deal with. I'd print it and laminate it or something. It's also that every skill seems to explain on its own what LMHC mean. I suppose that if you can memorize the order or meaning of LMHC (large, medium, high, colossal) you can fake everything but combat, which is spelled out on the one page...

comment How do you plan Savage Worlds combats based on PC ability?
I am all for unbalanced encounters, but my intent was not to find out how to balance them. (Combat is war!) It was about how to plan. I can look at stats for many games and tell what a stand-up fight will be like. I can know "this area is safe for the PCs, so if they go adventuring here, they might live, so I need more data; this area is super deadly, if they go here, they will die." In SW, I could not predict this, which was an inconvenience for planning. This was a very mechanics-related question.

Did you mean to provide another answer, gbjbaanb? Your comment doesn't make sense as a comment.

comment What games exist with a focus on travelling between alternate universes?
I'm not sure if I buy calling Jumpers a minimalist storygame. :) The manual is 222 pages, with lots of crunch. Every page has +10% this or -2 LVL that. – Also, having reviewing that WHOLE HUGE list, I only came away with three prospects mentioned in this question already: Fringeworthy, Odyssey Prime, and Jumpers.

That list of restrictions includes "there should be a best answer." Other moderators, I welcome your opinion on whether I should delete this question. (It'd save me typing up my findings on RPGGeek, I guess!)

Thanks for the link to RPGGeek. I searched there, but must have done it wrong. I now have a HUGE list of potential games filtered from that list, and I will attempt to add an answer summarizing what I've learned there, soon. That was very helpful to me!

comment What games exist with a focus on travelling between alternate universes?
Thanks, I got that answer from some friends, too. Only two problems. :) (1) Planescape is really more a game about traveling to different, totally separate (not "parallel") worlds. (2) Planescape makes me crazy. – I can totally see why it seems like it could fit here, though.

Interestingly enough, I'd looked for RPGs based on his Roadmarks, and found nothing.
