Our group tried out the East Texas University ruleset a while back.  It's mainly Savage Worlds, with a few tweaks.


Here's the link if you're interested:




In the Texas town of Pinebox, football is king and something with tentacles is lurking in the local swimming hole. In this Savage Worlds variant, you might battle chupacabras or zombies, but you still have to ace your geology final tomorrow.  East Texas University positions the players as students at the titular fictional school. Immersed in Texas culture and collegiate drama, they'll also face cultists, demons, ghosts, and the rest of the usual cast of supernatural baddies. It's Buffy meets Dresden meets Animal House.
ETU was written by Preston DuBose and Ed Wetterman of 12 to Midnight.  Savage Worlds was written by Shane Lacy Hensley and published by Pinnacle Entertainment Group. The game emphasizes speed of play and reduced preparation over realism or detail. The game received the 2003 Origin Gamers' Choice Award for best role-playing game. 
This limited series spans eleven episodes covering freshman year.
