If you ever decide to try a role-play game, I’d recommend Savage Worlds as a starting point. 🙂
It’s really flexible in terms of setting and can be super simplified.
(They also have a free “Test Drive” version. I haven’t played this module specifically, so I can’t confirm or deny a recommendation for it, but it looks like it has the basic rules.)
The first RPG I played was a zombie game based on this system. I played a journalist who eventually befriended a giant zombie dog.
Anyway, I don’t play the Savage Worlds system quite as much anymore, but I love how it bases skills in the different sizes of dice. (And how it has “bennies,” which gives you a chance to strategically reroll a failed roll).
Have you been thinking about trying a role-play game? Is there one that stands out to you in particular?
