Wow our RPG histories sound remarkably similar: I also started with White Box D&D back in '77. Wandered around among AD&D, Metamorphosis Alpha, Original Traveller, EPT, miscellaneous FGU systems, TFT, GURPS, CoC, and RQ. I've always tended to gravitate back toward a BRP variant of some kind though.

So what part of the globe do you hail from?
