Ok so I have my normal group of players that sometimes cause problems but are good players and fun to be around.
Now here is the problem we just finished a short D&D campaign for over the summer before everyone goes back to high-school and I go to college. Note my college is 30minutes away so I'm not going anywhere but I'm not sure what game to run.
It's not a matter of no ideas. I got ideas at least one for each rpg I own. That's the problem I have to many ideas and cannot think of one to go with. As such most of my players also have only played 4e D&D.

Not much of a problem. Now my players are fine either way staying with D&D and other fantasy settings or going in completely different directions Sci-Fi, Modern, Western etc.
They have no opinion on the matter so I'm stuck...
Then an idea hit me the playgrounders!
So quickly I put below the list of all the different rpgs I own. Most of my players are quick learners so a games difficulty curve will not be a problem.
I just need to limit the number of rpgs from there I can streamline the data.
Which means adding more to the story better plot because currently I have ideas but there bouncing around in there.

In no particular order

As most of your players have played 4E dnd, pathfinder could be a good option, most of the skills are the same, and it uses the combat and stat system of 3.5 dnd(with a few pathfinder only changes), the company that produces pathfinder also prints adventure paths, which could make coming up with a campaign easier, also 4E(as your players know it fairly well), or 3.5(which has a few adventures which again could make coming up with a campaign easier, just alter parts that donít make sense in your campaign world, expedition to castle raven loft, or any of the "expedition to" late 3.5 adventures are fairly well laid out(or at least raven loft is), and D20 modern could be interesting for a different sort of setting, and it uses the same system as 3.5 dnd which would make it fairly easy to learn

ALL OF THEM.

A gritty game of investigation set on the 18th century waterfront, with an emphasis on tense Western-style showdowns. The characters hail from secret societies of sword-fighting wizards and are accompanied by snarling waterbeast pets (though the question remains which of the character and the monster is subservient to the other). The wizards must cling to their tattered humanity as they serve incomprehensible masters whose shadowy motives are nigh impossible to discern.

Also, the wizards are also apparently anime furry space tycoons? Let's go with that.

This made me laugh thank you for that. I'd try that but I need to keep my sanity and I think that just might break it. :smallbiggrin:
Maybe later though that would be glorious especially considering those waterbeasts would be following preteens and teenagers because they can't bond with adults.

Go for Monsters and Other Childish Things. Its always a good break from the norm, and it is very well made, though both Nemesis and Reign used the ORE engine better.

When in doubt, Friend Computer says, "Run Paranoia, citizen."
