Custom game system values
The list of available game systems is limited, and it would be good if there was a way to add custom/free text values, rather than be restricted to a list.
A list is still a good way to ensure consistency (e.g. "Dungons & Dragons" vs "D&D" vs "Dungeons and Dragons"), and for linked to organized play campaigns.
However there should also be the ability (a separate input field even) to put in a custom / free text value, because there are just so many games out there it would be impossible to include them all in a list, and new ones are always appearing.
For example a mini-con I am organising includes: Dread, Gamma World, Leverage RPG, Don't Rest Your Head, several storyteller variants (Vampire: the Masquerade, Changeling: the Lost), a new RPG still in design (Lords of New Morvennan), and a home brew system (Harry Potter Roleplaying game).
totally. it’s on the list and we should get to it pretty soon.

Customizable categories that allow GM's to input the name of the game system, to allow for any and all games ever written to function with Warhorn.
we do add game systems frequently when people ask for them. just open a ticket here with the names of the systems you need and we'll get it done for you asap.
as for D&D 5e, I've just renamed "D&D Next" to "Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition", abbreviated to "D&D 5e".

It would be good if this is addressed, because the list of systems is always changing. e.g. Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition is now out, but not in the list, so can't be picked, even though it is a fairly major system.
Alternatively, a responsive team adding new systems as needed would be okay, e.g. can you add D&D 5e ?
