OP here. I will play any system as well.

And I think a 2-3 times per month schedule would be perfect. My only regular commitments are Monday and Tuesday nights CST so I could do it almost any other evening. Weekend evenings would certainly work for me as well.

I'll just say that I DM a 4th edition campaign every other week with 5 family members across the country. We use roll20.net. Works pretty well for us.

Only reason we're playing 4th ed. Is because I stumbled on 17 4th edition books for $50 at a goodwill. Couldn't resist.

I've used to play 3.5 and would recommend that although it has a slightly steeper learning curve.

Tonight, before bed, I'll try and dig out some of my links to that stuff. I have tons of PDFs archived, including some stuff that's free to distribute but no longer available via the author.

Sorry, crises with cat health issues derailed me. Nothing is easy when pets get sick.

So, here are some free RPG systems, some free as in beer, some free as in speech. I resisted free as in "liberated".

Sorry this is so long. There were at least as many I had bookmarks for I had to delete because they no longer exist on the interwebs, only in my documents folder. What kinda settings/environs are peeps interested in/is Flake interested in running?

Personally, my preference would be straight up DnD but I am ultimately flexible.

He is OK. We're barely hanging in there, though. Lack of sleep combined with election drama meets adulting is already so darned hard equals ugh..... I should be able to free up a couple hours a week, however, if we can ever get this going again and start simple with a system or play style that supports shorter play sessions OK.
