I write computer software for a living, mostly in Perl. I give away lots of it. Share and enjoy!

In my spare time, I tell my daughter stories about Batman, read books, watch movies, play video games, and try desperately to play D&D even though nobody I know wants to.

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!

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.

Yeah, the "see squat beyond that" is probably the only good thing I found in the 1E Dungeoneer's Survival Guide about the dark. Thanks for that and the rest!

comment How can I more effectively use darkness in a dungeon?
This has been a problem for me in many games and editions. I am happy for solutions for any kind of fantasy RPG. Specifically, atm, I am running a B/X D&D game (PCs are humans and elves), a 4E game (PCs have normal or low-light vision and one PC right now has darkvision), and Mazes & Minotaurs.
