As many of you know, I’m a fan of roleplaying games in general but don’t have the time to run or play as many different systems as often as I’d like to. These days I seem to run a lot of 5th Edition D&D — which is great fun. Sometimes, though, I find myself thinking, “I really like this mechanic from this system and that mechanic from that system. I wish I was running those games instead!”
