  1. Does anyone have recommendations for the best forums to find/start a play by post, Hero System game? Considerations would be, a Hero System playing community, any special features like limited visibility posting (I miss this so much from Hero Central), access? Personally, I find games on real-time chat type sites like roll20 too time-consuming in a single block of time for me to commit.
  2. I want to do a play by post game on a forums. The thing is, one of the people who may most likely want to join is dirt poor. (In fact, it's a miracle that he's even able to use internet, even if his internet access's crappy - sattelite based {and thus, high latency} and a complete inability to visit certain sites.) Is there a way with showing my PDF copies with him that doesn't require low latencies like many internet apps nowadays and not allowing him to keep said PDFs? (I'm not keen on piracy. Besides, for obvious reasons, I wouldn't ask about him keeping said PDFs on the forums of the company that sells them.)
  3. I am preparing to run a Play by Post (PBP) campaign using 6th edition. I am looking to make combat run as smoothly as possible, and especially as quickly as possible; with respect to Speed. Factors to consider: 1) Most players check the site no more than once per day, thus if combat begins - and players have more than a speed of 1 - they will likely only manage to type-out/roll a single action (phase) at a time. 2) I don't want to get too ham-fisted about restrictions, although I am limiting speed to 4 - I don't want to get any tighter than that. 3) I intend for there to be between 4-6 PCs. 4) I am sure that there are others, I just went brain-dead.
  4. Support Your Local Geek Squad "Big Bang Theory meets Supernatural" Looking for interested players for a little different kind of Monster Hunter International game on www.herocentral.net http://www.herocentral.net/campaignInformation.htm?newCampaignId=1202992 Face to face role-playing gamers become involved in events way beyond their experience and competency level when they encounter real-life monsters and learn they can get paid for killing them, which is the only way for them to survive the encounters anyway! Low powered, Hero System 6th edition as described in the licensed, "Monster Hunter International" rule and setting book. NOTE: CHARACTERS MAY DIE! "Low Powered" means teamwork will be essential, and just getting unlucky could result in a "party wipe out", so please don't play if having a character die would traumatize you irreparably. Character Creation: Starting characters to be built on fifteen character(15) points, total. All fifteen character points (15) must be matched by Complications. I. Things not allowed (or not included) in the MHI rulebook: Combat Luck, Missile Deflection, etc. II. Things imposed as Campaign "House Rules": Characteristics are Base 8 and Max 13 with x2 cost per point over 13; CV's base 3 with x2 cost over 4; Speed base 2 with x2 cost over 2; PD & ED base 2 w x2 cost over 3; Talents and Perks and Skills x2 cost after first 3 points. Characters are unemployed and geeks (pick an area of specialization: board games (includes strategy games), card games (includes deck based, i.e. "Magic" ), comic books, computer games, movies (Action, Fantasy, Horror, SciFi, etc), Role Playing games, video games, etc). Player characters must be human with no magic spells or previous knowledge about the real world of monsters and magic Campaign disadvantages that all characters must take for no points: Wealth: poor Social Limitation: negative 3d6/-3 modifier to PRE-based rolls (special effect can vary from geek to geek) Distinctive Features: Geek Clique (Easily Concealed; Noticed and Recognizable) Hunted: Geek Clique character belongs to 11- (As Pow, NCI, Watching) Rivalry: Geek Clique character belongs to 11- (As Pow, NCI, Watching) Additionally, each character must have a Complication that keeps them from being on the actual, MHI team, something that either got them "washed out" of training or kept them from being invited at all, either Physical or Psychological or something else we collaborate on (it can be a "mystery complication" that the PC isn't aware of too). Each character needs to have an area of "Geek specialization" which represents a useless area of expertise. Examples: "Civil War Re-enactment", "Superheroes", "Star Wars", "Prime Numbers", etc. Characters will get six (6) free points of Knowledge Skills in this area of expertise, but they must be useless and impractical. If interested, please apply through the www.herocentral.net site.
