So, with the entirely subjective list of D&D influenced OSR games ordered by complexity of rules, I find myself trying define the parameters of the list.
I'm inclined NOT to include sci-fi games, but there are 2 outstanding choices that practically beg to be included: Stars Without Numbers and X-plorers. So maybe they should be included for completeness if nothing else.
I've decided that the rules must be available in English. If I can't read the rules, I'll be unable to evaluate how complex the rules are.
They don't have to be free (although most seem to have a free PDF version available). If something that isn't on my initial list is available at RPGNow, point that out to me. Or point me to where it can be found - my google-fu is decent but by no means perfect.
I'm figuring to use the following "Bands" to indicate complexity:
The labels may change, but those are the groupings I'm looking at.
