I buy the paper books because I’m old and detest electronics at a gaming table. I like paper, dice, and occasionally some minis on a play mat. Sure it emphasizes my Luddite tendencies but hey my table my rules!

Traveller is a system I really need to look into more seriously. Of course, if I do eventually pick up some of the rulebooks it'll be in paper format.

What I really want is a rules light sci-fi game system which is not Star Wars or Star Trek. I should look more seriously at White Star but its an OSR variant of OD&D set in a Star Wars setting. And the fact it's $40 for a paperback copy of the rules from Lulu. Pretty ridiculous actually.

Star frontiers was a pretty decent rules light game.

The alternity/Star•Drive series wasn't bad either.

There are a bunch of different Savage worlds space settings.

Bundle of Holding has a Delta Green RPG sale going on right now.   I'm running a campaign for my local group and we're having a blast.  I really like their take on modern day Cthulhu mythos.  The "history" of Delta Green from the 1920s until now as written in the Handler's book is excellent.  I never looked at the original version of Delta Green so I was unaware of the world they established.  TBH, the original seems like it's more interesting than the current version as it's got a lot more going on in terms of various sneaky agencies running around, engaging in conspiracies and fighting amongst one another than the current version but I understand that it had become stale for long time players and they wanted to put a new twist on things. 

Production values in the rulebooks and scenarios are great.  I do find some of the published scenarios are a little lacking though .  They're a little lacking in terms of establishing an effective mystery for the players to unravel.   They're either far too linear or much of the back story is so buried that the players will likely never learn or understand the reasons behind what they're investigating or up against.

These are based on a series of novels by Charlie Stross. Might be worth the read if you enjoy the setting.

Also - pre-dates his Laundry Files novels, but was probably an inspiration for the setting: http://www.infinityplus.co.uk/stories/colderwar.htm


I actually don't really like games.

I have the audiobook versions of The Book of Cthulhu Vols I and II.  The Colder War story is in volume 1.  It's that story which convinced me to pick up a copy of Delta Green in the first place.
