Runewars. The downtime is minimal, even with 5 players, compared to M&M. Components are better in Runewars, too, and Runewars feels more epic, imho.

EDIT: Just to be clear, Runewars isn't the lightest game out there. I think your two candidates have about the same level of difficulty and complexity.

I haven't tried runewars. M&M is great but neither short nor easy.

I like Runewars better, it is longer than M&M but also gives more fun.

Both are pretty long btw.

I own merchants & marauders but have only played it twice and don't think you've got any choices which make any sense / is interesting (in the basic game play at least) to pick within so I wouldn't recommend it.

Rune wars I haven't played but due to that I'd pick RW over M&M.

I don't feel like I have to choice to act like a pirate or merchant. I pick either and then I play like that.

Yeah sure you can choose whatever to follow a rumor/mission to .. But that's kinda it.
