1981 - GDW's Traveller
1982- TSR's Star Frontiers
1983- Flying Buffalo/Blade's Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes (MSPE)
1984- FASA Star Trek
The great system when I was a kid, though my friends played heavily TSR's Top Secret. We had a short lived Starfleet campaign, but I GMed all the way until 1991 a Merchant Campaign. Some of these were converted into Gurps later on.
|For the record, I created Stryker 3 years before the ST:NG's Will Riker (in 1984)|
We recorded all of our adventures in the Starfleet campaign through Captain's logs, which I discuss here.
Aah, but it was the merchant campaign, set in the Triangle, where the RPGing really took off for me.
1985- Victory Games' James Bond
1985- Steve Jackson Games's Gurps
Gurps was by far the best RPG system out there. From about 1987 to 1991 (sporadically from 1991 to 1993), that was the only system I played and converted many characters to it.
1987- West End Games' Star Wars
From 1999 to 2006, I GMed a PBEM (play by email) campaign with Jim for several years, as discussed here in part 2.
