You'd certainly have no objections from me if Fudge was the choice, but I realise that I may be in a minority.

My personal favorite is one of the Cortex incarnations.  I like step dice and dice pools.  But that was a hill too far for Richard, so I assumed it would be for the fan base.  And their IP keeps changing hands.

What about creating a simple, expandable system based on Duck Trooper? Take the core of it, the simplified attributes etc, drastically reduce and broaden the skill list and add in some colourful elements from full system like the Fast Kill chart.

Gross sales revenue should not exceed USD$2000 per annum. If you anticipate a higher sales revenue, you should apply for a full Commercial License.

That seems like a very low bar when it comes to sales of a rulebook. 

Writing an RPG system would be a major undertaking of course, and frankly with older RPG fans there seems to be a reluctance to learning yet another RPG system.  A simplified system might be okay though. 

Over on the BRP website, any posts by 'Newt' who is the owner of OpenQuest, might be worth looking at.

It appears 'Legend' is its own RPG system and OGL.  It is certainly familiar as a D100 BRP-type game system (I own a PDF of Legend) but with any BRP, RP, or CoC material scrubbed.

BJB  -- Thanks.  I hadn't even thought about Duck Trooper, was looking at the 1992/3  flagship products.  But I already de-rastorized BBBwB, which was essentially the same system, so I could use those files and not have to OCR or retype all the text.

Appreciate ALL the input.
