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.

  1. I would love one!

  2. Count me in!

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

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

  5. 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.

  6. I would definitely be interested.

  7. Oh hell yeah.

  8. Sure, an RPG would be neat :D

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

  10. I’m in.

    Can we get an autographed copy if we pre order?

  11. Yes, definitely

  12. 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

  13. I would

  14. I would absolutely buy it.

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

  16. I’m in.

  17. I would

  18. 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.

  19. I would be on this like white on white things.

  20. uhhh…hell to the yeah…count me in

  21. Yes, please!

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

  23. I would be all over that!

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

  25. Oh yeah!!

  26. I’m in for two.

  27. I’m in.

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

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

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

  31. I would

  32. Very interested….

  33. 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…

    • 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.

      • 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.

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

  35. I’ll take at least one.

  36. 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!

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

  37. Sign me up!

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

  39. Ooo! Oooo! Me!

  40. 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.

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

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

  43. I’ll take one. Will there be minis?

  44. OOOOO, I’m in.

  45. Absolutely!

  46. I’m there

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

  48. 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 . . . ).

  49. Interested? You betcha!!

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

  51. I say we book bomb Larry when it is released!

  52. YES!!!!!
    I’d be interested.

  53. Mark me down for one.

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

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

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

  57. Oh hells yes.

  58. 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.

    • 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.

  59. Oh HELL YES! I want one! Or two!

  60. Put me down for 1

    -Brian Gnad

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

  62. Please!

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

  64. 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”…

  65. Just tell me where to send the money.

  66. count me in

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

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

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

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

    • 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. =)

  71. Count me in Larry!

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

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

  74. fine fine. I’m still interested.

  75. I’d pick one up.

  76. 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?

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

  78. 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 ;)

  79. Dear Larry: Yes.

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

  81. 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.

  82. 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!

  83. I’d be interested.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  89. I would like one please, sir.

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

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

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

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

    -Scott

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

  95. I’m interested

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

  97. Count me in

  98. Oh yeah! I’m in!

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

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

  101. Definitely!

  102. I’m in.

  103. I would love to buy one or maybe two!

  104. Yeah, this could be a lot of fun.

  105. YES!!! And there was a standing ovation

  106. Hell Yea!

  107. Oh you had better count me in

  108. 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

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

  110. Add me to the List.

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

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

  113. Count me in.

  114. Yes.

  115. 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…

  116. Absolutely!

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

  118. 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.

  119. I’m in.

  120. 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.

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

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

  123. I’m down!

  124. I want one too!

  125. 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.

  126. 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.

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

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

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

  129. I’ll take one !!

  130. Oh hell yes!

  131. 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.

  132. What they said.

  133. 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.

  134. Yes! Oh so much yes.

  135. I would take 2 1for the house and 1 for deployments when i go overseas

  136. Yes. Yes, Yes. Might even be enough to get me playing an RPG instead of just reading the source books…

  137. I would definitely buy it!

  138. I’m in for a copy.

  139. Hell, yes!

    Not only do I want the employee handbook I want an employment application.

  140. I’d be interested.

  141. I would so dearly love to have this!!! I have the patch tattooed on my arm!!!

  142. Totally want one Big Guy!

  143. Oh hell yes

  144. I’d be interested!!

  145. Yep!

  146. I would definitely buy one! An electronic version would be cool too. :-)

  147. Interested!

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

  149. I would buy the crap outta that.

  150. 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!

  151. Yes!

  152. Oh yeah, count me in. I hope the cover art raises eyebrows the way my old AD&D Player’s Handbook did.

  153. 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.

  154. This project is relevant to my interests. Count me in.

  155. Oh, absolutely!

  156. Me! Me! Me!

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

  158. Can I give you money for it now?

    How about now?

    Now, maybe?

  159. Count me in!

  160. Yes, if I’m not to late to the party that is.

  161. I’m in :)

  162. I’ll buy 2 if you autograph them!!!!

  163. JUST take my money!!

  164. Ummm….. Yeah!

  165. I want 1! Shut up and take my money!!!

  166. Count me in… MHI handbook would look great on the office bookcase (next to the HR policy manual). I know which one I’d reach first for :)

  167. You had me at MHI RPG. That means count me in. This is something I’d love to buy and create a gamers night with my friends. ^_^

  168. I am DOUBLE interested. I’m crossing my fingers that this is going to be Savage Worlds!

  169. I’ll buy one it it gets that PUFF bounty off my head..
    I mean, yeah count me in!

  170. I want one!

  171. Hell yes! I’d buy one…maybe two….or three….plus any add-on packs :D

  172. Im in I want one!

  173. Count me in. I’d love to read it and love to help.

  174. I AM SOOOOO IN.

  175. Fanatic gamer gleeful yes!! Looking forward to that one!

  176. I’ll take one

  177. Count me and my group in for at least 2.

  178. 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.

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

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

  181. I’d absolutely buy one.

  182. yes Iwould LOVE IT

  183. Definitely count me in. Whether or not I ever get back into RPing is irrelevant; getting a more in depth view of the world will be excellent.

  184. Heck yes, I’ll take one.

  185. Heeeey-oh!

    And I’m off to get someone else to speak up too. Back in a jiff.

  186. Wow, Larry. Almost as many posts in 3 hours as your ‘HK suck and hate’ got in as many years

  187. My son and I are big fans. It is something the two of us would enjoy!

  188. absolutely, i’ll probably want 3 or 4, gotta supply my whole family!

  189. Yes please…come on savage worlds/pinnacle…….would be a great read if nothing else

  190. I am in!

  191. I want one!

  192. my friends have been using a modified World of Darkness setting, so this would be most welcome. so at least three sold here.

  193. Take my money! All of it! I’m so excited for this! I will be in line release day for this!

  194. I’m down for one. How much?

  195. Me !!! Especially if Franks is in there too.

  196. Yup and a how to on abomination ;) I love that gun!

  197. Of course I want one. Way cool idea. An option for getting a signed copy would be extra coolness piled on top.

  198. Yes, please. And include a section for team patches, know your competitor…

  199. Argh! I have to have it!!!

  200. We wants it, we *needs* it!

  201. I will buy this even if I don’t get to play it. If the system is good I’ll even push it on my friends who still work in the games industry to get it and push it.

    Can I buy it now? Where do I send my money?

  202. It’s one that I’d like to buy, but am unlikely to ever run (even though I’ll borrow bits and pieces of it for other stuff.).
    I tend to buy games like this in .pdf format.

    WW-type dice pools are a deal-breaker, they’re just a horrible, broken, no-good mechanic.
    Level/Class based systems aren’t a whole lot better, and don’t mirror the reality of the setting in any case.
    Something along the lines of the BRP, GURPS, Hero or Fuzion would be best. GURPS or Fuzion would probably the easiest of the mentioned quartet to adapt, just because of scaling issues. (Of course, I’m going to convert it to GURPS, anyway. I’m admittedly a fanboy.)

    • Now how did I manage to overlook Savage Worlds? That’s a darned good fit.
      Yeah, I’d have to go with Fuzion or Savage Worlds as the best options.
      Followed in declining order by:
      GURPS, which is obviously not going to happen (The company doesn’t license its mechanics to third parties, doesn’t have the resources to throw at another project right now, and already has a “GURPS: Monster Hunters” line.) It has firearm verisimilitude, more options than you can shake a stick at, great resources, defensive rolls, but mechanics that slow down gameplay if you have an inexperienced GM.
      BRP This one could happen. Great resources. A good system (although I don’t like the Sanity Mechanic). The problem I see is power scale. It doesn’t really do “larger than life” action movie stunts all that well.
      Hero. I don’t think there’s much chance of this happening. (But I could be surprised. Kenneth Hite’s “The Day After Ragnarok” set a precedent.) The 12-phase turn would be great for simulating how fricking *fast* some of the monsters in the book are. It’s extremely flexible. The downside is that it would take a large amount of work up-front , and it would overwhelm inexperienced GMs and players.

  203. Yeah, I would love to buy that. If you are taking suggestions, how about some optional rules for the shooting range? Want to know if your character can headshot that zombie? Don’t roll to find out, the player would have to make the shot themselves on the range.

  204. Oh yes, count me the heck in. I have been wanting this since I finished the first novel.

  205. I’m not an RPG guy, but I think it’d be a hoot – yep, I’d buy one.

  206. Count me in!

  207. Simply saying yes doesn’t seem enough. It will have to do. So YES.

  208. Add my “Yes, Please” to the chorus.

  209. Me!me!me!.*cough*

    I would be more then pleased to obtain such a literary endeavor ;-)

  210. Been a dungeons and dragons player for years, but ive absolutley got to play a mhi rpg, what a great idea Larry, i can play that in between book releases.

  211. I’m in. Wait, what have you written that I haven’t bought?

  212. Two over here. My son and I would both buy one.

  213. I would like to have one as well!

  214. It would get two so I had an extra just in case.

  215. I’m in for a copy.

  216. Count me in too. And I bet I can guess the company who you’re working with on this project. Palladium Books, the home of the Rifts RPG. Tons of amazing original artwork in thier RPG sourcebooks and rule books is one of their trademarks.

  217. To describe the state of my trousers on reading this would probably be overkill, but suffice to say there is a strong indicator I’m interested. I mean, if nothing else I need to know the local team’s special operating instructions.

  218. Count me in. Ive been dying to own this very concept/book since I read the first book!

  219. Wow, I had to call my husband at work so we could both geek-out about this :-) Can’t wait!

  220. i would buy 1 and 2 more for gifts the second they are available. count me in!

  221. You know the deHaan brothers are good for one each! (We don’t share well)

  222. I’ve been wanting to play in your world forever, count me in.

  223. Ditto on the strong interest.

  224. My only question is do I get a discount for buying multiple copies?

  225. Da!

  226. I’m in! I haven’t had time to rpg in years (yes, I work way too much) but for something like this I don’t care.

  227. I would love one!

  228. Yeah I’d be interested as long as its not one of those systems that glosses over details on firearms and such…

  229. I’m game (pun intended). Congrats on the deal, Larry…and thanks again for the autographed swag!

    Sincerely, one of the “Millersville Mechwarriors”.

  230. I am greatly interested sir.

  231. I would be interested assuming that it was affordable (e.g., around $20 or less). Really like the books!

  232. Yes please!!

  233. I’d be real interested.. and might be able to get the rest of my group into it too

  234. Yeh I would

  235. Great idea! I’d go for one. Have you spoken with any companies yet about making a line of MHI figures?

  236. I’m interested.

  237. Pardon my language, but Fuck Yes!

    I think I can get some of my RPG friends in for that… I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled.

  238. Count me in for two: one for me and one to give as a gift. I know someone who’d totally freak to find one in his stocking…

  239. Count me in. Hopefully Savage Worlds or Call of Cthulhu/BRP. (And please stay away from some D&D clone.)

    • And, yeah, I’ve been running Savage Worlds MHI scenarios pretty much since I first read MHI… it’s too good of a fit.

  240. Well, given that I already have a gaming library that could be used to make a book fort like unto few others….. Count me in.

  241. Yes. Look at the stuff done by Evil Hat for Jim Butcher.

  242. I’d buy it just for the MHI world info. I hope it’s D20 3.5 system…

  243. Yes

  244. Tag–yes, please!

  245. Dear sweet D20’s yes!

  246. OOOO RPG BOOKS!!!
    Hands over wallet.
    What system will it be using.

  247. If you get Chris Muir of DaybyDay to draw Julie and Holly, I’m in…oh heck, I’m in anyway…

  248. I have yet to play a tabletop game but this would DEFINITELY be a game I’d play! I would love to have a copy of that book!

  249. Yes please! I’ll even wait at the border for it! (Cross border shopping sucks)

  250. VERY INTERESTED. :D

  251. OMG an RPG!!!11!
    Of course I want such a book, what am I? Normal???

  252. Count me in

  253. One, please.

  254. Do want!

  255. Count me in!

  256. MeMeMeMe! Me! Me! oooo ooooo oooo Me me me!

    I want one!

  257. GURPS!! GURPS!!! GURPS!!! But we’ll be onboard for a set or two no matter what it is. :-) We would also love to see minis and/or other game related ,merchandise.

  258. Of course. We’ve been trying to convert the standard OGL to Monster Hunter stuff for games anyway. :)

  259. I want one so ship to UK

  260. Sign me up for one or two.

  261. Sounds interesting, I havent played RPG’s in years

  262. Count me in.

  263. Hell yeah!

  264. Oh. Hell. Yes.

  265. Absolutely! I am sure my husband has already responded but we will both be seriously looking forward to this! AWESOME!!!

  266. Yes, please. Also, play testers needed?

  267. Like you need to ask? Of course we want one!

  268. Hell Yeah! How quick can we get it?

  269. Oh hell yeah

  270. Sounds interesting.

  271. I would definitely interested!

  272. yes and it would be super sweet to do a version of Catan. “trade you 3 newbies for some bullets”

  273. Sign me up.

  274. I’m definitely interested.

  275. Definitely want one

  276. Sign me up!

  277. Certainly. Will fourth (fifth? ninety-eighth?) the Kickstarter suggestion, given the fan base…and also <3 the idea of some Day By Day art in there as well.

  278. I know for sure we’d play this at family reunions. Count me in!

  279. My friends and I have been running an MHI campaign. We started using D20 Modern and then switched to Savage Worlds. Would definately be down for haveing an official MHI RPG to run.

  280. Shut up and take my money!

  281. We’re good for at least 2, more if you have it in an electronic format.

  282. i want one!!!!!!!!!

  285. Yes, please!

  286. I would love to have one! Countme in!

  287. Me, me, me, me, me!!! (jumps up and down frantically)

  288. Umm out me and my crew down for 12

  289. Me! Add one more to the yes column,

  290. I want one!

  291. I would like one, too.

  292. Short of it being ridiculously cost prohibitive, I’d defiantly buy one!

  293. Join my voice to the multitude, yes please!

  294. Hell yeah I would be interested.

  295. Yes Please!

  296. Yes!!!

  297. I’m in. I’ve already gotten my role-playing group hooked on the books, this is just the next step.

  298. If i could get one of these my life would be almost complete

  299. Ink me in for one, pencil me in for a second and an e-copy depending on price and my budget.

    • And there’s an RPG crew that meets at my neighborhood diner once a week… I’ll try to get them hooked on Larrycrack too.

    • Oh, BTW, this announcement… Best. Birthday present. EVER! :D

  300. OH HELL YES! 1

  301. Heck, I’d like one.

  302. Count me in.

  303. Yes Please

  304. Want, want bad.

  305. Under $25, count me in. Probably not in the cards for a large Hard cover book though. : (

  306. Like you even have to ask? I want one!

  307. I NEED IT!!!

  308. I’m game

  309. you betcha

  310. Yes.I would be interested. Curious to see who you went with. Nice bonus of original story and art.

  311. I’d love one! I’ll even pitch into the Kickstart!
    I vote Savage Worlds or Fuzion for the system – anything but D20, please!

  312. Ooh! I want one. In fact, put me down for 2.

  313. I would love a copy!!!!!!!!!!!

  314. I’d like a copy.

  315. Heck yeah. I can’t wait

  316. Sounds great. Good for you, LC!

    I would like a copy of this, maybe two!

  317. Best Idea since the Dresden Files rpg. I’d buy at least one.

  318. I would love that.

  319. I would be in for one

    Also you need to look into a mhi video game for any console hell I would buy that console just to play it if you got one made

  320. Helps yeah!

  321. Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes again.

  322. Sign me up!

  323. oh pick me, pick me

  324. I’m interested.

  325. I definitely want one!!!

  326. Oh, Hell yes!!
    Both for my gaming group and for my general nerdiness!

  327. You need a “long, wildly unaimed bursts” rule…

  328. Love to see it.

  329. Sounds great! At least one, might manage more :)

  330. I would buy it

  331. I’m in no matter what system it’s for, though I’m gonna go ahead and guess that it’s gonna be GURPS.

  332. I’m in, and probably good for several copies once I get my gaming group interested. Count varies from 4 to 20, depending on the game and the night, so possibly half that number in copies.

    I hope the system is playable, it sounds like you already have something in the works. Worst case, the background material could be `ported over to anything; that part will be GREAT Heck, I’ve already swiped pieces for two different systems.

  333. Put me down for TEO (2) copies.

  334. two – stoopid keybordz…

  335. So long as it has monster info…I’m in!

  336. I’m in for a copy…hell, I just finished putting a folding 8″ bayonet on my…8″ Saiga, so I need something to read now that THAT particular nightmare is sorted out…

    Alex

  337. I’m interested.

  338. Need one for my husband for Christmas :-).

  339. I would snatch up two in a heartbeat. I am a huge MHI fan, and have gotten my son hooked as well.

    As for the company, I have my fingers crossed for Green Ronin, though I am biased :)

  340. Yes Yes and more Yes!

  341. Count me for one.

  342. i would like to have one

  343. Of course I would buy one. I’d be stupid not to.

  344. stupid typer 1 for me please

  345. Oh yeah, I’m in!

  346. Me too

  347. I am in. Might add a few MHI related weapons advice… just a few nuggets of authentic lore.

  348. Yes

  349. Thou shalt kickstarter, and it shall be funded!

  350. I am not a RPG player but I would certainly buy this book.

  351. I would LOVE to purchase one.

  352. Oh yeah. As long as the RPG book comes with stats for an RPG in the weapons section.

  353. Abso-gorram-lutely!

  354. I’d like to buy two. Not even kidding; I have a munchkin in the house now and need one to hide away so it won’t get wiped out in a fit of projectile poopsplosion.

    …don’t ask.

  355. I’m in

  356. Sounds Awesome! I want one!

  357. I’d buy that one. Don’t know who I would play it with, but I would buy it. Also, Kickstarter?

  358. Larry, have you ever had a post go over 300 comments?

  359. Definately want one. Would buy an additional e-copy if it was available as well. It we are talking about wishes though, I would love a Hard Magic RPG even more than MHI I believe. Steampunk/Dieselpunk is exactly the genre I would love to play at the moment.

  360. All sorts of “YES”.

  361. Sweetness! I would absolutely love to see this come about.

    I personally would also love a Grimnoire RPG as well as an MHI RPG…

    Looking forward to seeing what sort of PUFF bounties I can wrack up, and I bet you would love to get scans of people’s custom character sheets for a ‘drive’ to get their character in a book (hint hint something fun you could do with it)…

    Just wondering though (and I’m sorry if someone already asked this) but will there be info in the book on making up a PUFF-exempt monster-class Character (IE: Harbinger, Franks, Heather, Stricken) or a not-PUFF-exempt illegal alien (MHI Orc) including a way to balance out their ‘Epic Skill’ (ie: Edward = Blademaster + Lousy Shot / Skippy = Helicoptor God + Bad Driver)? Will there be rules for drawing up a Fae (Doppleganger, Babayaga, etc), or an Old-One powered mage (Martin + Lucinda Hood, etc)?

    I know that this is the MHI Handbook, so I could understand it not coming with rules for MCB or STFU character creation (Books sold separately, like all the other D&D style games?) but would absolutely love it if they did though.

    I love all the books (Legion eARC was FANTASTIC!) and would definitely buy this in hard cover and in ebook form (ebook form so that we could print out character sheets, and we could pass around a netbook easier than the big book).

    Thank you again for your fantastic effort and wondrous skill at writing, and I hope Management will be seen in future books… He and Owen still have much to discuss after all.

  362. Add me to the list!

  363. I would like one, don’t play, but want one.

  364. I even have a properly MHI colored D20, yes I’m in.

  365. I will buy it when it becomes available. More MHI awesomeness is always to be cheered (and bought). Only hope that if you did sign with Wizards of the Coast, you’ll keep them straight, as they really managed to fuck-up with D&D 4th edition.

  366. I would take at least one copy. Great idea.

  367. Sign me up.

  368. Hells to the yeah!

  369. I’d take one for me, one as a gift.

    Autographs thru Hugo’s?

  370. Sounds fantastic. I would definatly want one.

  371. Hi, long term lurker here who has read everyone of your books (each one twice) and who has a signed MHL on pre-order. Yeah I want the handbook too.

  372. I’m in!

  373. Yep count me in.

  374. hell yeah!

  375. I’d buy it, and if we’re going to play the guess the company, I’ll go with it being a GURPS product from Steve Jackson Games

  376. I’d be interested in a Correia-approved weapons table of the kind that RPG books inevitably have, and which in almost all RPGs bear no resemblance whatsoever to reality.

  377. I would likely buy several.

  378. Yes please a hand book would be cool. Sign me up.

  379. I am a huge fan of MHI and would love to have a copy.

  380. And one for Miami

  381. Would love one :)

  382. I’d buy one.

  383. 400 Comments…Hmmm I think you can take that as a yes.

  384. Absolute YES.

  385. Yes, but from my local bookstore.

    Has anyone thought that such a book would be a concordance for fan-fiction in the Monster Realm, by which to keep assorted contributions more pr less consistent with each other?

  386. Yeah, I’d give up some ammo budget for a copy. ;)

  387. I’d like at least two: one for me, and one for my father.

  388. I’d love to have one as well.

    Seriously Larry, at the rate you put out stuff I want to buy it might be easier to set up a direct draft to you out of my bank account.

  389. YES please!!!!

    I’ve said MHI needs an RPG and comic series since I read the first book.

  390. I’ll buy two copys!!

  391. How many times can i say yes to make it work!? I have been wanting to run an MHI campaign since i started GMing three years ago. And was wondering how i was going to get it to work with the GURPS system.

  392. So much yes… to go along with the couple hundred other people so far.

    Can we get an autographed copy from Uncle Hugos?

  393. Larry I need 5 coies. But this really should be a book that Tony publishes. What I want is The rule, and then what Owen tells the new recruits is the reason for the rule. You know, the anecdotes about the employee screw up that brought this rule into existence.

  394. Yes. A hundred times yes.

  395. I’m in for one without a doubt. As long as you include a part about why MHI doesn’t approve of H and K firearms.

  396. I want one!!!!!!

  397. hells ya

  398. Do want.

  399. Not a rpgeee-er but would do what i have done with everything else with your nsme on it: BUY IT

  400. Have really enjoyed your novels, especially MHI. Would definitely consider buying even though I am not participating in RPGs.

  401. Count me in for one

  402. I’d buy ten and give them to my friends.

  403. yup

  404. I would buy it in a heartbeat.

  405. I’d like one.

  406. How about an MHI MMORPG instead?

    Like World of Warcraft, with 12g. Kalashnikovs.

  407. I’m a big fan of both monster hunting and universe expansion. No idea if it would get much/any use as an RPG sourcebook, since my group tends to have plenty of game system inertia, but that hasn’t stopped me before when I like a setting anyway. Count me in!

  408. o/

  409. Haven’t had a chance to play any in-person RPGs in years, but would still love a copy of the book. Since you’re over 400 replies so far I’m hoping this means “response positive” ;-)

  410. Definitely looking forward to it!

  411. Given the group I’m gaming with, sign me up for 3.

  412. Hell YES! make that 2 for me

  413. Yup. I’ll take two.

  414. Stop supporting my habit!! (I want one, too, please)

  415. Awesome, I would love one!

  416. I am SO in. I love RPGs anyways, this will just be nerd awesomesauce.

  417. Hell Yes I want one.

  418. Yes please

  419. Yeah, I would buy one. Just tell me where to send the loot.

  420. I’ll take one or two.

  421. Dear Cthulu yes

  422. I would love one since i’m an avid table top pen-n-paper rpg’er…I would definitely try to get some people to play this…the supernatural and guns…lots of guns…who doesn’t love that?!

  423. I would love one.

  424. Awesome. I want two!

  425. YES!!!!!! please shut up and take my money! just use the debit card and take whatever you think is fair.

  426. I would love to have a MHI RPG. I’ve always liked Call of Cthulu RPG, but wished it was a bit more explodey. This should fit the bill nicely…

  427. Heck yes, I’d buy one.

  428. Tentatively very interested but I’d like to see the product first. I’ve bought too many spin-off RPGs from super-cool series only to realize the gaming system behind it isn’t playable or is laughably simple, a la a board game. Even the spin-offs that are adapted onto an existing system (as some have commented on above) often don’t work well because e.g. the “world” has firearms and the system doesn’t handle them right, etc. My other reservation is that the spin-off games usually are super expensive. I’d like to buy Glen Cook’s Black Company RPG, for example, but the one book is about fifty bucks and I ain’t got that much kicking around for yet another RPG.

    If you need any play-testing, I’ve got a group rarin’ to give it a whirl :)

    And for heck’s sake, why aren’t you a guest at Dragon*Con 2012?

  429. I’m down for one, most definitely.

  430. Heck yes I bought some of the WoD rpg handbooks just to read for fun even though I never played. An MHI one would be awesome.

  431. Definitely interested!

  432. This saves me from using Palladium/Rifts to try and make a MHI RPG kit-bash. I would buy this in a heartbeat.

  433. I’d be interested, depending on price point…(sadly, cost is a factor).

  434. There is a company by the name of Drive Thru RPG ( http://www.drivethrurpg.com ) who can not only offer PDF distribution, but also have a Print-on-Demand service as well so that you don’t have to worry about warehousing, or shipping either.
    White Wolf Game Studios has been using them exclusively (well, everything but Prestige books that they can’t bind) for their books, physical and PDFs these days. Plus, it means that each book that comes off the line is made for each order and from what I’ve seen the product is pretty good too. :) (Maximum full-color book is about 450 pages, but b/w can be up to 530 pages.)

    Will you be making an announcement at Gen Con? ;)

  435. Definitely if it were available in PDF. Possibly a hard copy, possibly not. What I’d really prefer is mobipocket or epub, but nobody does gaming books in non-PDF electronic format….

  436. I am interested!!

  437. I’m very interested in this. A couple of us have discussed using GURPS or another system to run an MHI campaign once our current game wraps up. Good to hear that we may not have to go home brew.

  438. MY MONEY. WHY AREN’T YOU TAKING IT. -shoves random change from his pocket at his laptop-

  439. Yes awesome!

  440. I’d definately be in for at least one, in whatever format.

  441. hell yeas!

    I’d buy the whole kit-n-kaboodle for the section on dealing with zombie outbreaks.

  442. Yes Please!

  443. Iam soooo excited about an actual MHI RPG!

  444. Definitely interested

  445. Count me in. Rpger for 20 years now, and if its like the books It’s something that can happen.

  446. Me me me me! And my wife. And children. And me!

  447. Hell Yes! That’d be awesome!

  448. wow. 480 replies so far… thats better than shadowrun print run these days.

    Id buy that, for the expanded universe info and fun factor more than the rpg though. You could probably market the exact same material without the rpg dice/rules/stories as a standalone as well for fans.

    Also, accounting for dummies, MHI addition ;)

  449. There are not enough expletives in the English language to explain my enthusiasm. I may literally die of joy.

  450. Awesome Id buy one for sure.

  451. Oh deat me yes. I’ll take multiple copies if you please.

  452. This is awesome. I’m so gettin one

  453. Don’t care about the game, but I’ll get the book!

  454. I would be on the preorder list for sure

  455. Hell yes!

  456. I’d get the book for sure. My friends and I are already running a MHI based role playing game and an official resource like this would be awesome.

  457. I will definitely be purchasing that the day it’s available.

  458. Count me in. I’m thinking about bragging about it on a couple RPG forums and Chatrooms.

  459. Another one for the count…

  460. Yes….for the love of God yes!!

  461. Greetings from Malaysia. Me and my buddies would love a MHI RPG. In fact, we kinda ran a campaign based on MHI (and the old Bureau 13 series) using Shadowrun 3rd Ed rules minus the cyberware (well, some of the cyberware).

  462. O dear god yes yes yes. I have a roleplay group and run a MHI RP, ( we use the d6 system from the dragon age roleplaying game, its brutal and fast pased, just like Monster Hunter should be.

  463. Add one more.

  464. Yes! Please, please, please!

  465. Whether it be an employee handbook, rpg, or both, they would all be welcome. Maybe throw in a little dead six.

  466. Yes, please!

  467. Yes, please! My group has already been talking about trying to make something up using the Hero System, but a real book would be full of awesome. Anything MHI would be full of awesome, really. :)

  468. I’ll definitely buy. Publish away

  469. Sweet lord I need this. My friends need this.

  470. Need to feed the habit, count me in.

  471. Just found the series not to long ago, I’m not even finished with the first book yet. But I am an avid table top gamer, and even though I’ve just started, I’ve love the series. I think it’d be awesome to have an MHI RPG

  472. I’d order one as well.

  473. If its about MHI , near MHI, or smells like MHI, I’d buy it.

  474. While I have great respect for you, and your work, if you do not produce this product, I will hunt you down at a convention, and whine/beg/plead/hump your leg until you do so.

    Conversely, if you do produce this game, I will politely ship you the beverage of your choice, and buy a -second- copy of everything you’ve written, within the limits of my budget, and, should we ever meet, do nothing but give you a polite nod and a smile, with perhaps a handshake if you so choose.

  475. I work for an HR outsourcing company, This would be awesome

  476. I. AM. INTERESTED.

  477. I am definitely interested and have a friend that owns a game store that may be interested in caring it as well.

  478. I’m in.

  479. Larry, you’re really killing my chances of paying off my mortgage early. I now have a dedicated “Correia” shelf in the home library….

    Count me in for 2 of these please. Let me know where to send the money

  480. YES!!!! DEFINATELY!!!!

  481. Yes, yes… a thousand times, yes!

    Well, at least one. :)

  482. sign me up… at least once

  483. Absolutely! And several copies for friends, too!

  484. Yes…

  485. Two, please!

  486. Count me in. I’m a big old gamer nerd… ;-)

  487. Excellent!!! (Mr. Burns style…)
    My gaming group will love this

  488. YES YES YES! Just don’t make me wait too long. I was actualy going to free form this as an RPG but this is even better. *shut up and take my money!”

  489. Oh hell yes.

  490. I think that an emphatic YES should suffice. I hope that the game company is Green Ronin, but that is simply personal preference for the gaming system. I would purchase it regardless of the system.

  491. Reblogged this on …Geoffrie, A Work In Progress and commented:
    I am a huge fan of this series, and the thought of it being in an RPG format, hopefully in a system that I already know, just makes the fanboy in me come out and squeal in delight.

  492. Does want. I does want right now!

  493. I’m in,

  494. I definitely want one

  495. This would be BEYOND COOOOL!!!! Count me and my 500
    closest friends in…

  496. Oh HELL yes! Sign me up!

  497. Im down like James Brown for that.

  498. I haven’t played an RPG in years…but I would buy this the minute it comes out.

  499. I would buy 4 copies. We are big monster hunter int fans. One copy for me my wife and son and one just to keep in our collection. We three all have read and talked about your books they are awesome.

  500. Gamer for life. Bookmark mine,

  501. I want one

  502. Interested.

  503. I would be interested, and I know my husband and his best friend would be, too. We are all avid readers of yours, and we love your work, and your world!

  504. YES!!!

  505. Definitely interested.

  506. May I suggest the Spycraft RPG by Crafty Games (www.crafty-games.com)? Mostly ’cause I feel those guys need some love. And ’cause I have the books for 2.0 already…

  507. I dont know about playing a game with it… However reading all the cool info about MHI would be money well spent. Anything to read before next MHI book.

  508. I’m in for an ebook version. Since moving to ebooks I find traditional books annoying the in the maintenance department (dusting, space requirements). Perhaps a PDF? Or even a CBR?

  509. Heck, yeah. I’d be interested.

  510. yes please!

  511. I’m in for an e-book version, because I reference my RPG books so much that I wear them out, but if there’s signed hardback version, I’ll buy one of those too and bequeath it to my grandchildren along with the family Bible and illustrated Hobbit plus Lord of the Rings plus Silmarillion set and the trust full of guns and NFA items.

  512. I would absolutely buy one.

  513. As Kenny McCormick said:
    MRMMMPM-MMM!
    [WOO-HOO!]

  514. In for one

  515. Shut up and take my money!

    Also when and who is publishing this?

  516. I know next to nothing about and have absolutely zero experience playing RPGs, but I would love to give an MHI RPG a try. Especially since I can think of several buddies who might enjoy it.

  517. Yes, please. Not a gamer, though.

  518. I thought MHI already had an RPG… 7. ;-)

    I’d definitely pick one up.

  519. Reblogged this on Matthew Mayner Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writer and commented:
    It looks like Larry Correia is coming out with a Monster Hunter International RPG! It’s going to be EPIC!

  520. i would buy one for sure

  521. Absolutely. I would love to get together with some friends, make our own MHI team and go kill evil monsters.

  522. Absolutely in for at least 1 and maybe 2 so we can loan a copy out to get others hooked.

  523. I will take 3! They are all spoken for! When would they hit the market?

  524. Yes.

  525. It’s been 10 years since I rolled the dice, but if there was an MHI game I’d geek out with the best of them! Consider mine already ordered!

  526. Yes. I’ve turned both my sons and my SIL on to your books so that’s 4 right there :D

  527. Count me in. Format as 81/2X11 three-ring binder complete with read and sign form? .PDF will do, too.

  528. So larry, i got a question… i my self have been Home brewing a monster hunter RPG ( any one who would like to take a look at the rules email me at g34r_b0x@yahoo.com ) would there be magic, you allways hint at black voodoo and how its illigal and what not, but what if some one that did practice magic became a hunter, … will we see something like that in this book or not … ps Im buy three copies of this game… and geting my local game store to order some the second this hits market >.< cant wait

  529. Do want. Now.

  530. I’d love an e-version. I’m not much of an RPG-kinda-gal (unless you’re talking rocket-propelled grenades, then I’m all in), but I’d love to read it.

  531. MHI RPG would be an instant hit! I would certainly buy it!

  532. Hell yeah I’d buy one!

  533. Yes yes yes yes yes OOOOOOHHHH YEAH

  534. :{D i would buy one!!!!! that sounds soooo cool

  535. I’d buy one, probably via pre-order

  536. I’d probably buy several… for gifts… for myself… >=)

  537. Probably 2 – one for me and my son, one for gift for friend who read MH1

  538. I’d buy one, dead tree or pdf!

  539. I would highly enjoy this, as a fan of the books and a RPG player.

  540. I know of at least 4 copies i could use

  541. I’ll buy 2

  542. Definitely in for one!

  543. Under $40, and I will DEFINITELY get one!
