>What system did you go onto after TFT and why?

Well, y'all KNOW what system *I* went to... :)

In truth, I didn't sit around waiting seven years for Greg Poehlein to 
finish PlainLabel. In there somewhere we found time to write (and have 
our professsional lives almost completely absorbed by) FASA's original 
Star Trek RPG. I also spent a LOT of time playing TSR's original Marvel 
Super Heroes. (Gee, most of the systems I spent most of my past gaming 
time with are gone, now...)

I did a little GURPS in the early days, but it went more into the 
"detailed and rigid description of reality" route and I wanted to go more 
into the "fast and fun and uncomplicated" vein. I still love GURPS for 
what it is, but I can't say I play it with any sort of regularity.

By the time both Star Trek and Marvel were pretty much gone, Greg and I 
were well into PlainLabel in various preliminary forms. I've played a LOT 
of systems, but that's where my "house campaigns" have been in recent 
years, for the most part.

And since PlainLabel was heavily influenced by TFT, that does seem to 
bring us around in a circle, so to speak...
