Yes, I know, with a detailed title like that, how could you possibly resist?  Witty banter aside though, I have a few ideas brewing in my head, but only sufficient time to try running one right now. So who (if anyone) would be interested in the following:

1.  Exalted, using either the Gunstar Autochthonia or Heavenís reach setting from Shards of the Exalted Dream.  Spacefaring adventure!  Interstellar Yozis!  Occasional alien menaces that arenít Fair Folk with too much free time!  Whatís not to love?

2.  Rogue Trader. The bastard child of Star Trek and a Swedish death metal band!  Explore the grim dark future of the Imperium of Man, spreading the will of the Emperor...as interpreted by you. Or donít!  Itís rare for the Inquisition to look too hard at unclaimed space, so there may be no law but what you enforce on others...

3.  Star Wars, using the now old (dear lord, now I feel old!) Saga system.  Probably taking place in the now-defunct Legacy Era. Wars with the Sith!  Imperials who arenít inherently evil and racist!  Still scruffy smugglers operating on the Outer Rim, because thatís what the cool kids are doing!

Do any of these strike your fancy?  Pick one!  Or two!  Preferably not three, or Iíll never figure out what to run!

I would really love a SWSE game that didn't rely on combat to move forward.

I'm a big fan of Saga and the Legacy era, so I'm game for that one.

Interest expressed.  Preference for either Star Wars or something 40K-ish.

Have you had a chance to look over Wrath & Glory (the new 40K RPG) yet?

In reply to Finlos (msg # 5):

I have not. The price tagís a little higher than I want to invest in just yet, though I like the advertised versatility.

The PDF can be bought through the usual stores, if that's of interest to you.

I am a fan of the versatility between characters offered in the game.

At the risk of sidetracking my own thread, I may have to check that out.

I've been coveting Gunstar Autochthonia since Shards of the Exalted Dream came out. No interest in the other two, I'm afraid.

I'd play Gunstar Autochtonia or Heaven's Reach, to be honest. My group did a bit of tabletop Heaven's Reach and it was a lot of fun, but there's enough content there that it felt like we only dipped our toe in.

I could go for Starwars, particular in the Old Republic era, or testing out a new warhammer game if that proves to be a viable option, particularly with Chaos as PCs.

I would definitely enjoy an opportunity to use my Star Wars Saga Edition books...

Dark Heresy 2e rules, with a Rogue Trader ship?

Only changes to DH2e I'd suggest are;
Profit Factor is the average of everyone's Influence. (every PC contributes in some way, and some acquisitions are too large for a lone PC to attempt)
Ship Points are chosen by the GM. (warrant path is purely for story)
Aptitudes are chosen, rather than assigned. (8 total - General, plus 4 Characteristic & 3 Other)

Due to a not-so-minor case of burst pipes in the Landshark house, the Saga game is unfortunately off the table until iím Visited by the gaming budget fairy.  My apologies to those especially interested!
