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
George Fischer

Count me in!

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

I would definitely be interested.

Guest
Joseph Capdepon II

Oh hell yeah.

Guest
draven
2 years 11 months ago

Sure, an RPG would be neat :D

Guest
Dillis
2 years 11 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

I’m in.

Can we get an autographed copy if we pre order?

Guest
s2la
2 years 11 months ago

Yes, definitely

Guest
Gama
2 years 11 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

I would

Guest
Vidav
2 years 11 months ago

I would absolutely buy it.

Guest
2 years 11 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

I’m in.

Guest
Ryan

Guest
John from MI
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

I would be on this like white on white things.

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

uhhh…hell to the yeah…count me in

Guest
NKR
2 years 11 months ago

Yes, please!

Guest
RetroGrouch
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Jason Parr
2 years 11 months ago

I would be all over that!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Gary Holloman
2 years 11 months ago

Oh yeah!!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I’m in for two.

Guest
Karl Sandwell-Weiss
2 years 11 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
Thomas Roberts
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest

Guest
Huey148
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Brooks
2 years 11 months ago

I’ll take at least one.

Guest
Peter Williams
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Pete
2 years 11 months ago

Sign me up!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Ooo! Oooo! Me!

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Sebastian
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
steve
2 years 11 months ago

The above makes 50 by my count

Guest
Chris
2 years 11 months ago

I’ll take one. Will there be minis?

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

OOOOO, I’m in.

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Absolutely!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I’m there

Guest
Steve
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Interested? You betcha!!

Guest
Greg White
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I say we book bomb Larry when it is released!

Guest
AZMARK
2 years 11 months ago

YES!!!!!
I’d be interested.

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Mark me down for one.

Guest
PapaSpanky
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Brer Tiger
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
breadmaNxVI
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Oh hells yes.

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Oh HELL YES! I want one! Or two!

Guest
Brian Gnad
2 years 11 months ago

Guest
Dave Glassman

Please!

Guest
Pyrat
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Just tell me where to send the money.

Guest
kirk
2 years 11 months ago

count me in

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
BrokenFang
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Kody
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Julaire
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Count me in Larry!

Guest
Michael Davis
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Marty Goodman

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
Jaime Marlow
2 years 11 months ago

fine fine. I’m still interested.

Guest
Martini
2 years 11 months ago

I’d pick one up.

Guest
Daniel Lukas
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Paul Morell
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Dear Larry: Yes.

Guest
Bob Everson
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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.
2 years 11 months ago

I’d be interested.

Guest
Dave O
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
James C
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Wesley
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
CJW
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I would like one please, sir.

Guest
Jeff Brown
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Woodman
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
steve
2 years 11 months ago

I count the above hitting 100

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Scott Deering
2 years 11 months ago

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

-Scott

Guest
Bethany
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Jack
2 years 11 months ago

I’m interested

Guest
Jen
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Rob
2 years 11 months ago

Count me in

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Oh yeah! I’m in!

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Definitely!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Yes. All the yes.

Guest
Chris Upchurch
2 years 11 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
pyrojinx6644
2 years 11 months ago

I would love to buy one or maybe two!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Yeah, this could be a lot of fun.

Guest
Josh
2 years 11 months ago

YES!!! And there was a standing ovation

Guest
Gerry
2 years 11 months ago

Hell Yea!

Guest
pyrojinx6644
2 years 11 months ago

Oh you had better count me in

Guest
Cameron
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Add me to the List.

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Steve
2 years 11 months ago

Count me in.

Guest
peavybob
2 years 11 months ago

Yes.

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Absolutely!

Guest
B. Lahey
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
Simon Strauss
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

I’m in.

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I would.

Guest
Geoffrey Kidd
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I’m down!

Guest
Thomas
2 years 11 months ago

I want one too!

Guest
Ken
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
David
2 years 11 months ago

I’ll take one !!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Oh hell yes!

Guest
laclongquan
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

What they said.

Guest
tuco
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
jetaz

Guest
dustin
2 years 11 months ago

Guest
Logan
2 years 11 months ago

I would definitely buy it!

Guest

Guest
NTNR
2 years 11 months ago

Interested!

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

I would buy the crap outta that.

Guest
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

Yes!

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

I’m all in.

Guest
eugene wilkerson
2 years 11 months ago

You can put me down for a autographed copy and everyone in my gming group will want on to so thats 7 more. Also this is now my number 1 Christmas present.

I would absolutely love this, I would buy it as soon as I could.

Can I give you money for it now?

How about now?

Now, maybe?

Guest

I’ll buy one it it gets that PUFF bounty off my head..

Guest
Peter O
2 years 11 months ago

Count me and my group in for at least 2.

Guest
Witt Sullivan
2 years 11 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
2 years 11 months ago

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

Guest
2 years 11 months ago

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