Ya know, this is a good review. But there is this one review on Amazon, top notch. Probably one of the best reviews ever written really 😛

Have you thought about creating a RPG or boardgame based on any of your worlds?

RPGs are basically just fantasy accounting systems, and you’ve got that down pat!

I may be getting picky and since I haven’t read the context there may be something that fixes it here. ““They were near the Roosevelt Memorial. The Washington Monument rose in the distance to their left. To the right was the Lincoln Memorial, and standing next to it was one big demon.”” This can’t mean the FDR memorial, since it wouldn’t be there yet, nor would there be a reason to at this point. So that would mean Teddy, who has an island and a bridge near the mall, but no monument that I know of. If they are on… Read more »

I just finished “Dead Six” and loved it. The way it was written was different, and quite intriguing. I especially enjoyed the way you and your co-author brought the disparate groups together at the end.
Well done. I’ve read all the MHI books. Now to get the others.

Turning MHI into a D20 system shouldn’t be that hard for a professional game designer who reads the books.

Do it with GURPS. Mix in a bit of magic, some nasties, and the basic “real world” rules and you can wing it, and isn’t that what good RPGing is about?

Or you could use Twilight 2000 and Cadillacs and Dinosaurs if you like your rules super crunchy. Not to mention all the D20 smashups you could come up with.

Or just skip to the chase and use Palladium, they can do anything!

So far I’ve run two MHI games for my usual group. The first was a couple of years back, and I used the Unisystem engine and All Flesh Must Be Eaten to run a scenario involving a zombie outbreak, an old, escaped Nazi scientist, and a radical enviro-apocalyptic activist cult. The game ran just fine, but the Unisystem is a little clunky for running mass combat. It tends to slow down a bit once you start adding a lot of zombies all at once. The second MHI game was one I ran a few months back using the Savage Worlds… Read more »

Excellent books, excellent time-frame and world you’ve created….love em all! Its good to see that there are book reviewers who don’t review based on a set of well-worn preconceived notions and “rules” and “requirements” that a “good book” must fall in to. Now…if there was a way to set my Amazon account to automatically charge me and ship any book written/co-written by Larry Correia, I would be a very happy camper!
