    AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! There isn't that much math involved during play. There is math involved during character creation. If you find a good template for the creator you can generate tables telling you what DCV you hit with each roll. There are also generic tables included with the game that remove all the math.

    Oh fair Mathematics, hear not these words most foul. The cretins deserve you not my love!!!!!!!

    1. Star Wars
    2. Saga Edition
    3. Hasn't started quite yet, haven't found players.

    I have been thinking about starting up a Game in the belleuve WA area. IT would be set during the years between episodes 3 and 4. Already got some adventures ideas.

    Hero doesn't scare me, I ran/played it for many years. Just takes quite a bit of prep time. Course, most of the game systems I've seen as far as sci-fi type games always cause me more prep time than any fantasy system I've ever looked at!

    I gotta check my settings for topic reply notification. Sorry for the delay.

    At this point in time, our game is set in 102PA and the group is traveling in the northern region of Ohio and into Michigan. The next area will be New Lazlo, then Lazlo, and then up to Old Bones......if they don't get distracted along the way.

    I'm setting up a Phase World campaign for a friend I game with - for his "kids" (younger teens).

    Could be interesting getting them out of the thought process of sci-fi = the normal franchises <star trek / star wars / babylon5 etc>

    I think I'm up to it though.

    I am currently running Star Wars. Let's be real, it's science fantasy. But it seems to work okay.

    I am using Star Wars d20 revised, with bits of d20 modern thrown in.

    If you can file the serial numbers off of it, you can run anything in Star Wars.

    It's a wonderfully flexible setting.

    Agreed. I never had any problem with d20 Star Wars, especially when mixing with other d20 like modern and future. Science fantasy works for me.

    I must admit though, I've been itching to try out Saga in a game.

    I can never say enough good things about Saga. I love it. Of course it has its weak area and possible flaws, but holy crap it is easy to play!

    Phase World is part of Palladium Rifts, just placed on the other side of the galaxy or even possibly another dimension.

    I'll soon be running a BattleTech/Starship Troopers campaign, using the FASA and GURPS rulesets. I'm considering even adding in many of the universe elements from Vor: The Maelstrom. It will be my first RP campaign (not adventure) and I'm going nuts with excitement

    Star Trek, online, one on one with no real system in mind. It has been running for years. I guess it's working out.
