does anyone know if there are rules for modern, or sci fi or WWII that uses the one roll engine?

Um … what is the one roll engine?

I'm only aware of Godlike that uses the ORE and that's WWII. There might be a modern hack for the game but I don't know about it.

I'm guessing you could use Unknown Armies for some modern stuff… non-military, crime, espionage… ditch all the horror and magic and secret societies… dump most of it.
I don't know of any 'straight' version of ORE.

So is the ORE pike Mornington Crescent?

The dice mechanic is cute n' fun but I find it a bit too 'gamey' for my tastes.
It was all the rage on RPGNet a few years back… the game that was the answer to every 'what system?' question… but they've since moved on to new fads and trends.

Godlike and Wild Talents… and Reign are interesting settings.
