Although I recognize the need for houserules I'd hope the group would generally follow the RAW for a given system while not going overboard on the power level.
I have a flexible schedule to a point but there are things I must do that can't be avoided. Although it is probably uncommon for gamers I'm a farmer who would have to play around work at times.
I've PLAYED some DnD 2e and WEG StarWars. I've had some passing familiarity with Shadowrun and VtM. I own DnD 4e but consider myself well versed in 3.5 which is my prefered DnD system. While I have the StarWars RCR I think the new SAGA system is possibly the best RPG I've seen.
