Posted By: Accounting for TasteYou know, d20 really is a great system, and I say that without any sarcasm or moral judgment. It didn't get to be popular by accident, and the people who like it are not uneducated fools who don't know better.I really don't know a whole lot about d20 systems beyond the very basics, and now that I think on it, I'm not sure that I've even played much of it beyond D&D and CoC many, many years ago. I've had some of the same experiences as others in that thread, trying to poke friends with the pointy stick of System Matters and whatnot, only to have them stick steadfastly to what they know, no matter what. So, I'm genuinely curious - what makes d20 a great system? Aside from "it's what we already know", why would someone choose to play a d20 game over something more focused, or some other "generic" RPG system?
