Git is good but the benefits of moving to git-based VCS are over-egged.

For a project the size of PARPG, there is nothing between Mercurial and Git, and I'd suggest Mercurial is (despite the protestations of Git users) easier to get to grips with and has better tools on Windows (tortoisehg).

I would consider a hybrid system.  Let the coders use Mercurial and mix and match patches between each other, and then push official updates to the SVN repo.  Then artists can just worry about SVN, the project doesn't have to abandon it's current Trac/SVN setup (if it ain't broke!*) and everybody is happy.

* If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
