At 33:23, two sentences: "...and Dungeon Fantasy, which is part of the GURPS roleplaying game from Steve Jackson Game [sic], which is an old but classic game. Haven't had a chance to break into it; this is some really, really complex stuff."

Nice to see DF pop up in this fellow's collection and gain get a mention (and maybe a future review?). But it's unfortunate to hear that "really, really complex" judgment from someone who hasn't even looked at the game yet.

Apparently roll low on 3d6 is much more complex than roll high on 1d20. ;)

To be fair, there are 392 pages of what looks like rules. Few boardgames have anything like that much.

Many RPGs have "complex" rules its just the players are more used to dealing with them.

That said the tendency is toward more "light" rules.

Which is why The Fantasy Trip is nearing 1,800 backers. Lighter rules + nostalgia is coming together to make this project grow quickly.

Yes! There is a lot of swedish Indie rpgs now, and many of them have extremely simple rules, where a monsteror foe is statted out using obly a handful of numbers. Like Phil is alluding to, the timing with TFT is good!

Maybe something between GURPS Light and ultra-light would be a good idea - GURPS mini?
