2 out of three -- I don't remember Privateers and Gentleman. Rolemaster is
still in print, actually. Do I win anything? ;)

In a vain attempt to keep this discussion memetically oriented, I'll note
that it was games like Aftermath and Rolemaster that engendered my dislike
for mechanics-heavy RPGs. Are preferences memes? Are they an emergent
quality of a memesphere? Why do some memes ("Charts are cool and useful")
catch on with some people, and not with others?
