RPG A Day, 2017

Prompt: Which ‘dead game’ would you like to see reborn?
That is not dead which can eternal lie…
So, again, way too many choices…
Arduin: In 2010, Emperor’s Choice finally published Arduin Eternal, a massive hardcover tome that contains what seems, from reading, to be a very comprehensive and playable system with tons of room for character customization and a crunchy but not insane combat system. Since then… very little. I think there was maybe a monster book? But it needed to be supported with a steady line of cool stuff, and it wasn’t, and trust me, the EmpCho guys won’t be OGLing it soon, which is a shame.
STAR ROVERS!!!! Nuff said.
Toon! The market is more likely to embrace an ultra-light, ultra-generic system for cartoon simulation now than it was when Toon was first published, and, at the time, Toon produced several big, fat supplements full of the lightest crunch imaginable. It was like… popcorn. Kind of crunchy, a little, but mostly light and fluffy, which worked for the genre.
