    I remember hearing it mostly in the context of “this is completely guff” about something not really liked, game mechanics-wise.

    Not quite as memorable as “He faffs like a champ”, but I learned a lot of Britishisms during my time in Scotland =)

    Somehow, I don’t think that means what I think it means…

    I’ve always thought Rolemaster’s insane combat tables sounded like a great thing to base some kind of computer RPG on. As long as machine is doing all the die-rolling and table-consulting for the players, I figure you can get away with all the insane detail you want. But in an actual table-top game, it just sounds like cruel and unusual punishment.

    Oh, and thanks for introducing me to a new Britishism. I have definitely not heard of “faff” before.

    Actually, the online game Gemstone III is based on the Rolemaster system. 🙂

    In tabletop it’s not too bad as long as the players manage the table relavent to their weapons and really important skills. That eliminates a good bit of the overhead inherent in the tables.

    I really like the old classic Traveller, but that is more of a reflection on the campaigns I ran in back in the day then the actuall rules system itself.

    The beautifully concise Planet and Player profiles in hexadecimal were a triumph of brevity and functionality. I have a very soft spot in my heart for classic Traveller, despite its faults (i.e. trying to get a character to even survive the training backstory).

    The Grand Campaign for Rolemaster

    Just too busy with Ptolus now, which is just totally amazing. (Hijack thread warning – arrooga arrooga!) I have seen a lot of RPG stuff but this one just trumps the lot. It’s got to be the easiest to use campaign ever published. The cross-referencing alone is fantastic and that’s before even taking into account Monte’s warped imagination. For me this is the best thing since AD&D 2nd Edition Planescape broke the mould.

    My 2nd edition group will be playing 3rd next year to play in Ptolus. It is that good!

    It is a very thin book as they have pulled out all the setting and it is being released seperately.

    Which is crap as far as I’m concerned. Glorantha, even with the bloody Ducks, is it!

    *guff*

    Hey, Americans use that one. Unless maybe you’ve got a different meaning for it. For us, it basically means “bullshit”, and is almost exclusively used in the context of “Don’t give me any guff.”

    When I was at school it was polite usage for “fart”.
