I'd be lying if I said GURPS doesn't look like the final answer to all your RPG system needs. Point-based character creation and active defense are very appealing. Looks a lot easier to GM. Most importantly to me, it's setting-neutral so you can run a campaign anywhere, anytime (and game-design like a crazy person).

At this point in my research it's a contest between GURPS and the much simpler/faster Savage Worlds. Either way my interest in the D&D system is waning; I have deep respect for it and think it's actually a really great introduction to tabletop RPGs (at least it was for me) but I don't see myself playing it in 10 years.

From the get-go I've been looking for a system to play with my kids someday. I think GURPS is it.

GURPS looks good, but I much prefer what I have seen from Savage Worlds (I like the simplicity of it, and it keeps much of the point based character creation...)

Looking at the Guns of Megiddo setting for Savage Worlds and it looks pretty tempting ... if painfully short. I think I'd want to steal a lot of GURPS wild west stuff. I envision a campaign that starts extremely simple and allows the characters to get more involved/specific as the players learn the rules. Within a few weeks/months I'd want to see plenty of customization ie choosing what holster you use.

I was thinking of Guns of Megiddo not as the setting to run, but as a starting point. Something to use. You could rip off the edges, etc

Kill yourself.

I think I want the camp to start in the civil war right before it ends.

Been reading a lot of Savage Worlds vs GURPS reviews and I think GURPS is our best bet. SW is attractively simple and fast but I think we'd be frustrated by the lack of depth.

GURPS!

I am willing to GURPS. I would need to take a look at a rulebook that is more than the basic rules. And the old west scenario seemed to have a lot in the way of history and not much in the way of rules.

It does have a lot of history ... but it also has a staggeringly exhaustive list of everything you might want to buy from a general store, plus a lengthy armory. And while there's a ton of fluff, it also has rules for everything (even surviving getting scalped!)

For instance, study the fairly genius quick-draw rules. Love it!
