Who wants an MHI Employee Handbook? (feedback for book/RPG)

I’m pleased to annouce that there is going to be a new, special, very different MHI book. I’ve made a deal with a role playing game company (can’t announce who yet) and we’re going to release an MHI RPG.

However, this isn’t going to just be a book for gamers. It is going to be a big, heavy duty, book filled with all sorts of MHI related goodness. Like bits of original fiction, character bios, history, PUFF tables, and a ton of original artwork.

I need to get an approximate headcount of who is interested. There will be more details to come later, but please post in the comments here if this is something that you would like to buy.

Guest

I’d be interested, as an avid RPG player I’d find it to be if nothing else a novel idea for an RPG.

Guest
Jay
3 years 1 month ago

Yes I would definitely by and MHI Employee handbook and the RPG (even though I’ve never played an rpg before)

Guest
Dillis
3 years 1 month ago

The issue isn’t whether I want one but how many. I need one and will get at least one for my MHI addict my brother-in-law.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I would definitely be interested.

Guest

Oh hell yeah.

Guest
draven

Sure, an RPG would be neat :D

Guest
Dillis
3 years 1 month ago

Too bad you can’t edit typos as the above should read “my brother-in-law and fellow MHI addict.” Ah, well.

Guest

Can we get an autographed copy if we pre order?

Guest
s2la

Yes, definitely

Guest
Gama

I would absolutely buy something like this. It certainly beats my previous plan of reworking the Hero system so that I can run an MHI campaign

Vidav

I would absolutely buy it.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I’d buy it. Then again, if you were writing part of it, I’d buy damp newspaper wrapped around used coffee grounds (grin)

Guest

Guest
John from MI
3 years 1 month ago

I would be in for one, so long as it’s not gold plated and astronomically priced. I know you think this writing thing is a license to print money.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I would be on this like white on white things.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

uhhh…hell to the yeah…count me in

Guest
NKR

Yes, please!

Guest
RetroGrouch
3 years 1 month ago

Yes, and I’m pretty sure my son will get one as well.

Guest
Jason Parr
3 years 1 month ago

I would be all over that!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I would without a doubt be interested in this. Sounds awesome.

Guest
Gary Holloman
3 years 1 month ago

Oh yeah!!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I’m in for two.

Guest
Karl Sandwell-Weiss

Guest
Thomas Roberts
3 years 1 month ago

I would be in for 2. (Double in for autographed) How/when/where do I give you money?

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

C’mon Larry! Do you even need to ask? :P Sign me up for 2.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Hell YES, want multiple copies, would give them out for gifts, to friends who share the mindset.

Very interested….

Guest

Pitt rolls for SAN — Ah, F*** it…

Guest

When I used to GM/DM I’d take all the player’s manuals away from them. With some of them it was like taping Helen Keller’s hands together…

Guest

Oh, okay… *g*

Just stay as far away from the D&D rules system as possible. Look at GURPS, or the old The Fantasy Trip or Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes, which were way more playable…

Guest
Brandi
3 years 1 month ago

I think if he went with the older D&D rules system (not 4.0) it would be fine. I’m hoping for something more like Pathfinder RPG. I would buy at least 1 just for the extra content and if the system was awesome, I’d make my gaming group convert and try it.

Guest
DMRGrimes
3 years 1 month ago

Given the background setting in the novels, I’d recommend one of the Call of Cthulthu variant game systems. And, oh yeah I’d buy it.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Oh heck yeah!!!
Then again, I’ve been working on one for HERO 5e/6e as of late…

Guest
Brooks
3 years 1 month ago

I’ll take at least one.

Guest
Peter Williams
3 years 1 month ago

I would certainly love some of that action. I’ve been trying to get into a good RPG but my wife refuses to touch D&D. She actually seemed interested in an MHI RPG. Count me in!

Guest
Peter Williams
3 years 1 month ago

Also just realized the RPG and Handbook might be different things, either way I’m game for both

Guest
Pete
3 years 1 month ago

Sign me up!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

That is complete awesomeness. I would be completely interested in this.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Ooo! Oooo! Me!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I am interested; I’ve played a variety of RPGs under various rule sets; I’ve also had to construct employee policies concerning HIPAA and computer security. I’d love to help you however I can.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I’m interested. I can think of 2 or 3 others that would be interested too.

Guest
Sebastian

OOOOO, I’m in.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Absolutely!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I’m there

Guest
Steve
3 years 1 month ago

Please use the D20 system and not the D6 or D8. It’s easier to teach to my 9 and 6 yr.olds.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I’d definitely be interested in this, too, and more for reading than playing (though you’ve got me wondering what system the book would be using . . . ).

Guest
DanH
3 years 1 month ago

Interested? You betcha!!

Guest
Greg White
3 years 1 month ago

As a gamer, shooter and fan, I would totally buy one. Possibly 2.

Guest

YES!!!!!
I’d be interested.

Guest
PapaSpanky

Id rather have MHI rules for a tabletop minis game, but this still sounds cool as hell!

Guest

Guest
breadmaNxVI
3 years 1 month ago

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Oh hells yes.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

You going to Kickstart it, like Howard Tayler’s game? Gauge interest, and offer perks like more art, color art, new stories, journals of past hunters, etc? You would get funding up front for your new “art department”. MHI miniatures. MHI dice. Work it.

Guest
Cameron
3 years 1 month ago

ditto’d below
I’m not sure how much time it’d take to create though, I bet Mr. Correia has plenty of obligations with his book contracts.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Oh HELL YES! I want one! Or two!

Please!

Guest
Pyrat
3 years 1 month ago

I would be very interested. Especially if you include bios on monsters and more history about the company.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Yeah, that could be an entertaining read. I can see quotes in the handbook from past hunters about “If you see the EOD tech running, try to keep up”…

Guest
Nick

Just tell me where to send the money.

Guest

Guest

Guest
BrokenFang
3 years 1 month ago

As long as there is a PUFF entry for Gnolls. Plus recipes for stewed chupacabra.

Guest
Kody
3 years 1 month ago

I would like one! I really want Grimnoir to be a RPG! Maybe I can adapt GURPS

Guest
Julaire
3 years 1 month ago

M&M (Mutants & Masterminds) 2nd or 3rd editions work well for making Grimnoir-themed characters. At least until Larry gets a Grimnoir RPG book released. =)

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Count me in Larry!

Guest
Michael Davis

Requests for a bulletproof, fireproof, and floating version!!

Guest
Daniel Lukas
3 years 1 month ago

Are you kidding me, hell yes I’m interested. As for the RPG part are you guys looking at a D20 system or maybe something like abberant?

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I would love one. Any chance they could be ready to play at GENCON?

Guest
Paul Morell
3 years 1 month ago

I know for sure I would get it, plus at least one more copy for the group I play with. Wish I knew what system though ;)

Guest
Charles

Guest
Bob Everson
3 years 1 month ago

Are you kidding?? Hell yeah I want in!!!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

HELL YEAH I WANTS ME A HANDBOOK.! ! ! ! Seriously, That would be awesome. Also, try to come up with some realistic damage tables for fire arms. just saying.

Guest
Peter Williams
3 years 1 month ago

Someone posted about a figures game. I used to play one named MageKnight, with a turnable base. I haven’t played any without the extra base but I’d be game for both!

Guest
Jake H.
3 years 1 month ago

I’d be interested.

Guest
Dave O
3 years 1 month ago

Guest
James C
3 years 1 month ago

Would love to get my hands on the Handbook / RPG.

Guest
Wesley
3 years 1 month ago

Heck yeah! I’m not an RPGer, but an MHI Handbook would be a fun read.

Guest
CJW
3 years 1 month ago

Oh, heck yeah, and I know a couple of other people who would almost certainly get one.

(When do the LARP rules come out? :-)

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I would love to contribute and assist in any way, Larry. Thank you.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I would like one please, sir.

Guest
Jeff Brown

Guest
Woodman

Guest

I count the above hitting 100

Guest

This would be awesome. Make it. Make it now!

Guest
Scott Deering
3 years 1 month ago

I’d buy one. Be nice if if came in an electronic format though (e.g. Kindle).

-Scott

Guest
Bethany

My head just exploded with joy, and I’m not even a gamer. : ) Count me in!

Guest
Jack
3 years 1 month ago

I’m interested

Guest
Jen
3 years 1 month ago

I can speak a solid “HELL YES!!” for three of us.

Guest
Rob
3 years 1 month ago

Count me in

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Oh yeah! I’m in!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Oh, this should be good! Count me for at least one (possibly another 2 or 3 if I can get my brothers interested. :)

Guest
Roger Taylor
3 years 1 month ago

I would absolutely be interested in 3 of these books one for myself and for two friends that also love your writings.

Guest
paulyosh@gmail.com
3 years 1 month ago

Definitely!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Yes. All the yes.

Guest
Chris Upchurch
3 years 1 month ago

I’m in.

Guest
pyrojinx6644
3 years 1 month ago

I would love to buy one or maybe two!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Yeah, this could be a lot of fun.

Guest
Josh
3 years 1 month ago

YES!!! And there was a standing ovation

Guest
Gerry
3 years 1 month ago

Hell Yea!

Guest
pyrojinx6644
3 years 1 month ago

Oh you had better count me in

Guest
Cameron
3 years 1 month ago

Do I smell a kickstarter project? :D
Why go only halfway with a book- why not try for a full game set with figs n stuff?
It would certainly take a lot of effort though- and you may wish to keep it more open, for people to set up their own scenarios and such.
I’d probably be in, based on price.
Certainly for the book at a minimum

Guest

I’ve got my D20’s locked and loaded. Hell yeah!

Guest
Michael Richardson
3 years 1 month ago

Add me to the List.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

If it’s not incredibly expensive, comes with MHI die and ships internationally, I’m so fucking in!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

If it has your name on it ill buy it…..

Guest
Steve
3 years 1 month ago

Count me in.

Guest
peavybob
3 years 1 month ago

Yes.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

You know I want one.

Regarding an MHI RPG, I hope it’s a skill-driven game, not a class and level-driven game (think GURPS, not D&D). I mean, a good GM can make almost any system playable; but that doesn’t mean a lot of them don’t suck Schweddy Balls…

Guest
Eric Wayte
3 years 1 month ago

Absolutely!

Guest
B. Lahey
3 years 1 month ago

I would take an employee handbook, couldn’t care less about the RPG part, though.

Guest
Simon Strauss
3 years 1 month ago

Hell yeah, I’m sure I can get my group of gaming friends to playtest this as well so count me in for at least one, possibly as many as 7 or more.

Guest
Daniel Reimers
3 years 1 month ago

I’m in.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

As an avid RPGer, gun nut, award-winning RPG blogger, and GM who’s been running a monster hunter game for over a year, I’d absolutely love this.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Yes please Larry, I’d like to read and comment if I see anything amiss, which is probably unlikely.

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I would.

Guest
Geoffrey Kidd
3 years 1 month ago

I want two, please. One in paper, one eBook!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

I’m down!

Guest
Thomas
3 years 1 month ago

I want one too!

Guest
Ken
3 years 1 month ago

Heck yes, the bigger the better. The wife paid the $95 for the dictionary sized Warhammer codex, and she likes MHI way more than that.

Guest
james
3 years 1 month ago

I would be all over this. I’ve actually been running a RPG for that several months using the world of darkness system. You met my wife at BEA. Thank you for all the books and the poster. The guys were all really excited.

Guest
Julaire
3 years 1 month ago

*waves arms wildly in Kermit the frog style* YAAAAAAAYY!!!

(That means, yes, I’d buy one or more copies)

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

If you had a preorder up, I’d buy today.

Guest
David
3 years 1 month ago

I’ll take one !!

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Oh hell yes!

Guest

Are You talking about a pen and paper game or a computer game? Cause a PC game would be awesome. Imma itching to command a force of mercenaries since the days of Jagged Alliance 2. Silent Storms series is more about troops than mercenaries so it’s not the same.

Guest
sigboy40

What they said.

Guest
tuco
3 years 1 month ago

My group and I ran an MHI-style campaign a while back using the D20 Modern rules. One of the things I wished I had available was a PUFF chart since there’s not a whole lot of specifics in the books.

I’d love to see a ruleset that can be easily adapted back and forth between RPG and tabletop miniatures game. Similar to what Privateer is doing with their upcoming Iron Kingdoms RPG rules, where they’re two different games, but if you learn one, then moving to the other is easy as a lot of the terminology is the same. I really dig squad- or skirmish-sized minis games and I think the MHI canon would adapt well to that game size. I still await some company somewhere to take the concept behind Mordheim/Necromunda, where you have a squad of miniatures who progress in experience, power, and equipment from game to game, and really run with it. I’d love to see that here.

Also, the hope for an RPG with even vaguely realistic firearms rules has been a fleeting hope of mine for the better part of two decades for me. Don’t let them fuck up the guns, Larry.

Guest

Guest

Guest
3 years 1 month ago

Guest
Witt Sullivan
3 years 1 month ago

Heck, yeah. I would suggest making it compatible with multiple systems, like D&D 3.5, D&D 4.0, GURPS, and Savage Worlds, though it shouldn’t be too hard to plug in the monsters and equipment based on the source material that’s out there already.

Guest
James Conason

This would be an awesome thing to have. I would definately get it as fast as possible.

Guest
