I know how you feel. It makes me want to start a thread about... back
in SR1, the rules were.. or back before SR, we had to write our own RPG
using T$R rules as the base.
There are RPG's that I played that no longer exist. (James Bond, Top
Secret) and many games that I haven't played in two (maybe three)
iterations (Traveller -> MegaTraveller ->?).
I feel so old...
Maybe we should start our own rest home.
