  1. True but I think those products need to follow the streamlined “introductory” rule-set I was talking about. I know I started the thread talking about a signifier setting but the more I think about it the more I believe we first need to get people willing to try the game and I think a basic rule set is the best way to go about it.
  2. So I’ve been kicking around the idea of putting together a “basic” or “introduction” booklet for a superhero setting. It would use the Hero toolkit but hide 90% of it by using pre-built powers, skill and talent/perk blocks and character creation that is greatly simplified. I’ve even got the framework of a setting in mind. If anyone is interested in collaborating on such a project drop me a PM and I’ll be happy to provide more detail.
  3. The problem with existing IP is the money it cost to license it. A secondary problem is spending time and money to develop product you can’t use one the license lapses.
  4. I’ve often thought that what Hero really needs is a great signature setting. For many gamers a significantly interesting setting is enough to get them to try a system they might otherwise avoid and Hero lacks such a setting. You only have to look at the success of Palladium Books to understand how a great setting can draw people in despite a rules system many of those people tolerate at best. So what would your choice be if you could pick one setting ( not based on an existing setting or IP) for Hero games to develop as its “signature setting”?
  5. Do Thursdays work for y’all
  6. The only issue ay be time zones; I’m Eastern and if I recall correctly I’ve gotten interest from CA and AZ. Thoughts?
  7. The other possibility is Play-by-Email. With people who can post everyday or even multiple times a day, it's workable. With only a couple of players it can move at a reasonable speed. Thoughts?
  8. The first request was for weekdays. So with only two requests so far that’s kind of tricky. Hmmm
  9. Still looking player for your fantasy game ?

  10. I’m comfortable with any day so whatever works best for everyone is fine. My plan is to use 6th edition although if everyone wanted to use 5th I wouldn’t have a problem with that.
  11. So, back to the topic at hand... I'd be willing to run a game. I prefer a chat based game and honestly I prefer text based rather than voice chat. There are a few reasons for this, one being that there is a record of the game sessions, two being that players with English as a second language are usually more comfortable with the written word and third it makes it a little easier for me as a GM to run the game. I'm available almost any night of the week between 7 and 11 pm Eastern time. I'd also have a provision for PBEM for downtime activities and so on. Games I'd be interested in running include: 1. Early medieval in a homebrew setting. Low-magic, rather gritty, characters would be adventuring in a setting that is just recovering from it's version of the collapse of the Roman Empire. Small scale stakes to start with. Human only PCs. 2. A game set in the BECMI setting of Mystara (also called The Known World). The game would be set in The Grand Duchy of Karameikos with a human majority party preferred. Equal mix of combat oriented adventuring and political intrigue. Slightly more optimistic than gritty. (Details on the setting for those not familiar can be found at http://pandius.com/ ) 3. I track down my old fourth edition Fantasy HERO and Companion books I and II and run a game set in the Western Shores setting. Not sure what I'd do with this one as the setting is kind of a mish-mash but I'm sure I'll think of something. 4. Open to suggestions. What do you think?
  12. Only if you admit that Ovechkin is a Better player than Crosby. 😁
  13. Three players and a GM is plenty. So who volunteers to GM?
  14. I’m up for some fantasy gaming.
