Finding the right RPG

I stumbled across this flowchart in the ethernet, and found it amusing enough to share it here (even though it's missing Chaosium's BRP and Stormbringer; grrr...).

The flowchart originally was posted at Inkwell Ideas.

  1. My favorite part is the branch with "What do you think of Gygax"? And the "Who?" answer leads you straight to D&D4. Hah! Love it.

  2. I am still annoyed that it counts Alternity as a 3e derivative, when Altenity is a point based system that 3e/d20 borrowed heavily from. BRP should also be on it, I agree.

  3. I guess they figured Call of Cthulhu would count?

  5. Yeah I'm angry about Warhammer too. Otherwise it's neat.

  7. "It got warhammer completely wrong..."

    Given that one cannot even purchase WFRP at 'Warhammer shops', I would have to agree.

  8. "I guess they figured Call of Cthulhu would count?"

    Perhaps. But the chart included 'Champions', 'Fantasy Hero', and 'HERO', so it seems only sporting that they would include both 'BRP' and 'Call of Cthulhu'...

    Still a fun flowchart, though. :D
