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.

I’d pre-order it. Twice.

Guest
George Fischer

Count me in!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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 2 months 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 2 months 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 2 months ago

I would definitely be interested.

Guest
Joseph Capdepon II
3 years 2 months ago

Oh hell yeah.

Guest
draven
3 years 2 months ago

Sure, an RPG would be neat :D

Guest
Dillis
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Iron Spartan
3 years 2 months ago

I’m in.

Can we get an autographed copy if we pre order?

Guest
s2la
3 years 2 months ago

Yes, definitely

Guest
Gama
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
michael evans
3 years 2 months ago

I would

Guest
Vidav
3 years 2 months ago

I would absolutely buy it.

Guest
3 years 2 months 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
twistcut
3 years 2 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
Ryan
3 years 2 months ago

I would

Guest
John from MI
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

I would be on this like white on white things.

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

uhhh…hell to the yeah…count me in

Guest
NKR
3 years 2 months ago

Yes, please!

Guest
RetroGrouch
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Jason Parr
3 years 2 months ago

I would be all over that!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Gary Holloman
3 years 2 months ago

Oh yeah!!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I’m in for two.

Guest
Karl Sandwell-Weiss
3 years 2 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
Thomas Roberts
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Count me in

Guest

Guest
Huey148
3 years 2 months ago

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 2 months 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 2 months 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 2 months ago

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

Guest
Brooks
3 years 2 months ago

I’ll take at least one.

Guest
Peter Williams
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

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

Guest
Pete
3 years 2 months ago

Sign me up!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Ooo! Oooo! Me!

Guest
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

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

Guest
Sebastian
3 years 2 months ago

Not a gamer, but I’d absolutely buy it anyway :)

Guest
steve
3 years 2 months ago

The above makes 50 by my count

Guest
Chris
3 years 2 months ago

I’ll take one. Will there be minis?

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

OOOOO, I’m in.

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Absolutely!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I’m there

Guest
Steve
3 years 2 months 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 2 months 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 2 months ago

Interested? You betcha!!

Guest
Greg White
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I say we book bomb Larry when it is released!

Guest
AZMARK
3 years 2 months ago

YES!!!!!
I’d be interested.

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Mark me down for one.

Guest
PapaSpanky
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Brer Tiger
3 years 2 months ago

I have not counted my heads recently, but we are all interested,

Guest
breadmaNxVI
3 years 2 months ago

holy shit yes!!!!
deffo interested!
after all ive got an MHI tattoo!!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Oh hells yes.

Guest
3 years 2 months 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 2 months 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 2 months ago

Oh HELL YES! I want one! Or two!

Guest
Brian Gnad
3 years 2 months ago

Put me down for 1

-Brian Gnad

Guest
Jonathan

Man I’d love to own one of these babies!

Guest
Dave Glassman
3 years 2 months ago

Please!

Guest
Pyrat
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months 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
3 years 2 months ago

Just tell me where to send the money.

Guest
kirk
3 years 2 months ago

count me in

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Me. mememememememe. Me.And this is just me the person, not me-the-editor. :)

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I’m interested. Really depends on how much $ it will cost though.

Guest
BrokenFang
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Kody
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Julaire
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

Count me in Larry!

Guest
Michael Davis
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Marty Goodman
3 years 2 months ago

MHI + RPG = HELL YES!!!!!!! Just say when and where to send the cash.

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
Jaime Marlow
3 years 2 months ago

fine fine. I’m still interested.

Guest
Martini
3 years 2 months ago

I’d pick one up.

Guest
Daniel Lukas
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

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

Guest
Paul Morell
3 years 2 months 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
3 years 2 months ago

Dear Larry: Yes.

Guest
Bob Everson
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months 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 2 months 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 2 months ago

I’d be interested.

Guest
Dave O
3 years 2 months ago

Definitely would love a MHI RPG! Especially one modeled of Pathfinder rules….

Guest
James C
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Wesley
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
CJW
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I would like one please, sir.

Guest
Jeff Brown
3 years 2 months ago

I want it now! Today! But yesterday would be better.

Guest
Woodman
3 years 2 months ago

RPG yes. Tactical squad level combat simulator, also yes.

Guest
steve
3 years 2 months ago

I count the above hitting 100

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Scott Deering
3 years 2 months ago

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

-Scott

Guest
Bethany
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Jack
3 years 2 months ago

I’m interested

Guest
Jen
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Rob
3 years 2 months ago

Count me in

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Oh yeah! I’m in!

Guest
3 years 2 months 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 2 months 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 2 months ago

Definitely!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Yes. All the yes.

Guest
Chris Upchurch
3 years 2 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
pyrojinx6644
3 years 2 months ago

I would love to buy one or maybe two!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Yeah, this could be a lot of fun.

Guest
Josh
3 years 2 months ago

YES!!! And there was a standing ovation

Guest
Gerry
3 years 2 months ago

Hell Yea!

Guest
pyrojinx6644
3 years 2 months ago

Oh you had better count me in

Guest
Cameron
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

Add me to the List.

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Steve
3 years 2 months ago

Count me in.

Guest
peavybob
3 years 2 months ago

Yes.

Guest
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

Absolutely!

Guest
B. Lahey
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
Simon Strauss
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
3 years 2 months 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 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I would.

Guest
Geoffrey Kidd
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I’m down!

Guest
Thomas
3 years 2 months ago

I want one too!

Guest
Ken
3 years 2 months 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 2 months 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 2 months ago

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

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
David
3 years 2 months ago

I’ll take one !!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Oh hell yes!

Guest
laclongquan
3 years 2 months ago

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
3 years 2 months ago

What they said.

Guest
tuco
3 years 2 months 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
tuco
3 years 2 months ago

Almost forgot: shit yest I’m in for one at least.

Guest
jetaz

Guest
dustin

Guest
NTNR
3 years 2 months ago

Interested!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I want one for myself and another two to give away for the two other MHI readers in my P&P RPG group.

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I would buy the crap outta that.

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I would certainly be interested! Love RPG’s and of course love MHI! This is finals week for me and then its time to read Spellbound 2!

Guest
Chris Phillips
3 years 2 months ago

Yes!

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

I’m all in.

Guest
eugene wilkerson
3 years 2 months ago

Guest
Peter O
3 years 2 months ago

Count me and my group in for at least 2.

Guest
Witt Sullivan
3 years 2 months 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
3 years 2 months ago

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

Guest
3 years 2 months ago

YES! I will take a hard copy and a PDF too.
