Hybrid and Kitbash Rules


Tell me something. Have you ever wished you could sorta take bits and pieces from all your favorite game systems (assuming you have more than one) and smoosh them together?


I mean, I like Mutants and Masterminds and the Storyteller System (old and new), I like Last Unicorn Game's ruleset for its' abortive line of Star Trek games. I like the Warhammer RPG's rules, and so on.

Now mind you, you can't just mindlessly create a patois of this rule and that but I wonder if (through careful tinkering and a little of this and that)you could create some hybrids.

Have you guys ever done that? How did it turn out?
