comment Fast-paced and brutal rpg system
Apparently, someone did that work. It resulted in a new game, Blade of the Iron Throne. I added this as a comment instead of editing the answer because I have not played BotIT yet.

comment How do you play a solo game of Steve Jackson Games' Car Wars?
I'm pretty firmly of the opinion that Car Wars is a tactical tabletop game in the same category as Warmachine, or even Warhammer, except designed around cardboard chits instead of volumetric miniatures. Migrate this to boardgames!

comment Occult modern world setting
Dear downvoter - if you would explain your vote, I would endeavor to improve my answer. Without a comment, I can't really address your issue. Please note that on this site, downvotes do not mean "I disagree", they mean "this answer is not useful" which is different from most social voting sites.

comment RPG sytem which is based on character's character not stats
Cortex Plus Drama is the system I came here to answer. The Cortex Plus Hacker's Guide is probably the best way to get going with a Cortex game that's not one of the official settings.

I'm not sure your link to the ACKS rules is supposed to be a public link. The PDF rules are for sale and that book is not on their download page.

comment Why is burying yourself not such a great plan?
It doesn't have to crush you. It just has to make breathing exhausting. Every time you exhale, the dirt above your abdomen will fall. Every time you inhale, you will have to LIFT that dirt. Constrictors don't crush you to death, they suffocate you in exactly this fashion.

comment What is a scene, when do i roll etc.?
Let me stop you right there and say, you are telling a story with your player - Fate is built on empowering player narration. I think, "when do the rules some into play?" Is a great question here!
