Hunter x Hunter
I'm looking for a GM to run a solo or group (with the chance to split off on solo adventures, like the series) game based on the well known anime: Hunter x Hunter. There is some allure for me in the idea of growing stronger and facing greater challenges in the typical RPG format, but with the backstory and world of that setting as the backdrop.

A few things of note:
  •   I'd like to play a young character like Gon or Killua, but with my own twist, obviously.
  •   I think timeline wise, it'd be wise if we set our RP something like fifty years after the last episode. You can have someone like Killua show up, but he'd be the old man like Zeno instead of the boy, but as GM I'd leave it to you to decide how time has changed him.
  •   System or no system isn't so much important, but limits should be clearly established at the least. I can talk about that more with a prospective GM, if I get interest.
  •   I think the Chimera Ant arc had issues with power creep and world building to my tastes, and much preferred all of the seasons before it -- that being said, I'm okay with either keeping it or not as part of the canon. Since the ants are almost all gone, it's sort of a moot point, but I didn't like how powerful the ants were for no other reason than to make them a challenge. They were sort of a nonsensical enemy in my opinion.





Revision: I recently found a DM. As such, I'm even more adaptable on things, since I already got most of my wanted points of interest. Basically just looking for people with a similar interest in this setting for roleplay.

You could have it be 50 years after, but you could also have it be before too, and it'd get rid of the ants that way.

Systemwise, you need something that can handle all the absurd, off-the-wall powers, so something like GURPS if you want extra crunch, something like FATE if you want little to no crunch, or something meant to handle superheroes like M&M.

A flaw in HxH is that there are far too many arcs that just wouldn't be fun. The gaming continent would be a little too meta, the initiation too railroadey, the battle tower too much of a drag with too little RP... The game would do well to focus on the other things we're told hunters do instead of what we're shown most of the time.

Oddly, the ant arc is part of the kind of stuff you'd want doing, just without the stupidly overpowered ants or needing to have most of the overly powerful npcs drop by to save the day.

As the person advertising, I have no problem with any of the arcs for roleplay purposes, and could see all of them being worked creatively to create some interesting scenarios. In particular, even if it is railroady, the hunter trial would be an essential to any such game.

Any system works.

I'm interested in playing this if you can find a GM. I don't know the setting well enough to run it. In addition to the other suggestions, Marvel Superheroes (classic TSR) could handle the setting decently.
