Eclipse Phase is very new, and probably not getting as much attention.. but it is very cool. Also available from Catalyst Game Labs.

Very happy to see CthulthuTech as an option too. I'd buy that data set in a heartbeat.

I think what is needed for the Authoring Kit, (which is great btw), is for it to be a little more user friendly as well as the editing tools for the data sets. It seems if someone (like myself) has very little programming skills, it take a lot of time just learn how to make simple edits. I really wanted to make a dataset for McWoD in HL, but had to go back to an "older software" that is very limited, but easy to edit. I Love HL and want to use it, but it's just not user friendly when it comes to editing and/or house rules.

I definatly voted for d20 CoC and a d20 base mechanics. My whole idea behind getting Hero Lab was because I wanted to make a GOOD set of tools for CoC d20 version which you just can't find since its such a niche game. I assume the CoC listed in the poll is the most recent version by Chaosium and not d20 but Either would be good. And the d20 mechanics would be GREAT just because it would allow a great deal of flexibility for everyone trying to develope d20 based games that are similar but still sufficiently different from the 3.5 rules to be worth developing.

I missed out on the vote, but I would love to see support for Exalted in Hero Labs.

If you're doing Call of Cthulhu, why not also include BRP (Basic Roleplaying) as well?
