A few comments about the games/systems

The Classic White Wolf is the simplest system (and also the one I would modify the most).

Rifts is BY FAR the most complicated system and the one I am least likely to modify.

Stars Without Number is in the middle and I would probably tweak as needed.


I have the clearest idea of how the whitewolf game would run (players would begin play as new recruits into a covert-super-secret men-in-black organization.

Rifts is in the middle here, I know the starting location (Near the St. Luis Arch Gateway) and basic motivations/politics of the group you will be a part of (medium sized travelling circus) and where you are headed (south toward mexico and the vampire kingdoms).

Stars Without Number is currently the least structured in my mind...I have a sector of the galaxy built out and a few factions and plot points, but players would have the most freedom in character creation here.
