The next RPG I plan to run is Tunnels & Trolls, but if I were to run one of the D&D clone / simulacrum that are available today, I'd probably opt for Swords & Wizardry (Complete). It seems to cover all the bases that I want in a clone, and at the same time is very easy to house rule without breaking anything.
Besides, the S&W Complete book is a beauty to behold. If I were to join a new group (via VTT or face to face), I'd be looking for a T&T or S&W game preferably.
Which reminds me, my next Castles & Crusades session is a week from Saturday. I'm sure the pricing of the CKG PDF will come up. Should be interesting.
Rift (the latest MMORPG) went live yesterday for pre-orders. With Teamspeak connecting us all, about the only thing missing from our old D&D sessions was the sound of the dice... oh, and a DM directing everything. Still, we had a blast, even with the ungodly queues to log in. I went and had dinner during my wait ;)
