When I was doing the majority of gaming, one thing that allowed us to do
complex systems was the fact that more than one person in the group
owned a set of the rules, so CharGen was quicker, also the group did 10
hour sessions on Saturdays, so Rules Lawyering wasn't such a bind.
Now that the time has been reduced to a few hours on a weekday night,
and often there's only the ONE set of rules, then I find that simple
systems have won the day, hence why I end up running TFT now and again,
though buying talents and spells can take time.
