...in some old school gaming? AD&D 1st Edition or maybe AD&D 2E (sans all the additional optional rules).
What I mean by Old School is that back when we originally played D&D it was a roleplaying game...we roleplayed everything. There were no rules for non-combat conflicts aside from a very basic +/- modifier for reaction.
While we had dungeon crawls sometimes, that wasn't all there was. We played for years without a need for rules for everything under the sun.

What I'm proposing is playing in a campaign where we explore a setting, get in some sandbox adventuring and just have a good time with it.

Something pulpy and gritty would be nice.

Re: You might find this interesting...

My apologies - I wasn't taking a jab at you, at all. To be honest, I thought you might appreciate the link, as well, so I put it under your comment in the hope you would see it - and did not intend it as a criticism of what you were saying! (That'll teach me to be too cryptic.)

And you are right - older gamers and games don't have a corner on this market - younger gamers are doing this sort of thing, too, without having to be silverbacked grognards. And that's a good thing.
