Been talking to a few people and found some interested in the Luke Crane games Burning Wheel and/or Torchbearer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtUgtX3ncTk&t=2623 for a video explanation of some of its interesting points

http://drakesflames.blogspot.com/2010/12/rpg-review-burning-wheel.html is a okay written summary of the classless Burning Wheel system


When playing, beliefs, instincts, and traits of the characters tie strongly into the story, and you have a really good idea what will happen before every roll either way. Failure is as a rule going to be interesting but possibly harsh



 

Tocrchbearer is basically a hard mode old school era D&D dungeon explorer, but you're constantly beset by the realities of capacity, conditions, poverty, and the like



-


TB is harder to survive when playing, BW is a bit more technically difficult



Both systems are not simple. They both need you to read 100ish pages of rules and have a basic level of system mastery by the end of the first session


Let me know if you're interest in joining a shortish 3-4 session campaign in one and or both of the systems as a player or GM. Let me know as we'll if Skype or some online tool would work if we can't all physically get in the same place reliably
