First thread and first post, sorry if this isnt quite the right section, while walking home past a sort of pawn shop I saw several roleplaying game books/sets for only 2-3 each and wondered if any were worth purchasing, heres a list of what i saw-

Advanced Runequest and Runequest Bestiary
Gurps Horror,Basic Set Supers and Wildcards
Marvel Universe,DC universe
The Terror of Ravenloft, 2nd edtion
Exalted, First edtion

Im not entirely sure of their respective editions or full names due to darkness so apoligies if thats an important issue :smalleek:, thanks.

I saw Etherscope before. It looks like a rather interesting Victoriapunk setting.

Definitley get GURPS Horror. As for the rest, take a look at them before buying (I'm unfammiliar with the other RPGs)

Do you like rolling dice? If so stay away from Marvel Universe: it is "resource allocation". Make your own marvel system if it comes to that.

As for the others, never played/seen them.

Thanks for the responses, I ended up getting GURPS basic set (3rd edition) and Horror and Ssupers, (second edition) for 4 and 3 each so im pretty happy. Looking through they seem to have been a good buy and a solid system. They also had a copy of exalted which I considered as it seems somewhat popular. The only dungeons and dragons product I found was a second edition copy of Ravenloft which looked quite interesting. There were also several books to strange mostly occult based RPGS and copies and Champions.

Occult based RPGs you say? Like what? :3

I really cant remember their names, they had generic names and taglines the only one I remember was called chill, some of them looked fantasticly complicated :smalleek:.

No more to do with deamons and spirits and such, I presume your thinking of the Whitewolf games.
