Favourite SF RPG
Another no-big-surprise choice here, but I’ll say Burning Empires. It’s masterfully designed, captures its source material perfectly, and handles technology better than any other game I’ve experienced. Plus, gorgeous physical artifact. People need to get over how intimidating this game looks on paper and just play the damn thing.
Runner-up for this would be Diaspora. My feelings on Fate have become more and more mixed over the years, but Diaspora is just a solid little game — one of the few non-Evil-Hat Fate games that “gets’ Fate, IMO. Honestly, were I to point anyone to a Fate-based RPG, I would point them to this one.
