MONSTERHEARTS
I have recently heard about Monsterhearts, and gotten hold of the first edition. Never played it, but it looks easy to pick up and run with. If the second edition isn't too dissimilar I would be up for playing that as well. Given the nature of the subject matter I would expect to see an Mature or Adult rating on a game. I'm  over eighteen and good with that.

I am hoping for something from the mid 90's at the earliest up to present day-ish and set at a location (city, town, what have you) rather than traveling or based around an event that only certain people would be interested in. The setting should not be a "monster highschool", but rather one in which the players characters are monsters in a crowd of humanity.

The character idea I have in mind is a Queen with the "first born of the hivemind" origin and the Streaming move. That, or a Ghoul or Werewolf as second and third choices. It would also be nice to not have the Chosen skin in the game, as that seems like it would shift focus towards fighting monsters, rather than being monsters.

GODBOUND
This is another game I have recently come across and would like to play. The idea of playing new demigods in a fallen world with no authority above you is great. While the adventuring element of the game is neat, it is the rebuilding/shaping the world and developing your following that really appeals to me. I am fine with a Mature or Adult rating in this kind of game as well if a GM wants those.

For setting, I would like to try out the one that comes with the game. But I am not opposed to others as long as they have a similar dark age/broken world element where the Godbound are really needed. One where there are no elder gods or other kind of authority guiding, handing out missions, or holding the PCs back. I want that power fantasy and the ability to really change the game world in a sandbox environment.

The character concept I have in mind for a Godbound game is a farmer with some military experience who has bound to the Words of Fertility, Might, and Passion.



Generally I can post daily, and I would like to be in a game that for the most part has regular, consistent, posting rates. It does not need to be multiple times a day, or everyday, but too little story progress and I know that my interest will wane from lack of activity.

I am aware that some people equate horror or mystery to the clue hunting. I am not one of those people and find investigative games with detective work to be unappealing. So I would hope that a potential GM could minimize that sort of element.

Other than these things I do not have any special requests. Mostly I just want to create a character, find out who they are through play, and interact with the game world and other players to see what kind of stories come out of it.

Please only post here if you would like to GM a Monsterhearts game, or have such a game already running.

I know I am jonesing for some more MH since the last one fell apart.I also REALLY REALLY want to GM a Monsterhearts game that takes place on a roadtrip from California to the Woodstock Festival (and through the event itself). But one, I am already GMing a Dungeon World game and two, I don't know if I could do the era justice having not lived through it. If I get a bunch of people interested in this 'unique' Monsterhearts game idea I MIGHT be willing to give it the old college try.

That is a different idea Paradeaddiction. I was expecting/looking forward to something from the mid 90's at the earliest and set at a location (city, town, what have you) rather than traveling or based around an event that only certain people would be interested in.

I also would not want to overtax you. An overburdened GM trying to squeeze in posts is something that is rarely fun for GMs or players.

It is good that people are interested in the idea of a Monsterhearts game. However, this is not a thread looking for interested players. It is a thread looking for a GM. Please only post here if you would like to GM a Monsterhearts game, or have such a game already running.

EDIT:
I have edited this request into the first post, along with some other comments and requests directed towards potential GMs.

Monsterhearts [Mature or Adult]
I'd love to run a Monsterhearts game, but it's not clear to me that the forum rules here would permit it—underage characters are not allowed to have sex, even off-screen.

(EDIT: yes I know that's not what the rules say; it's what I've been told by moderators, however, more than once.)

Just googled this and it sounds very interesting. I briefly played apocalypse world a few years back and liked the system (though I didn't get very far into it). I see that this game uses the same rule base.

However, I'm unsure about the subject matter being teen-based, especially for an adult game. Now if we stay clear of the teen vibe and make the characters more mature adults then I'm in.

In past games I have played in, we just made the PCs college students. There was never any explicit sexual roleplay, either.

Rook Seidhr is not going to be able to GM a Monsterhearts game anytime in the near future. Which means I am still looking for a GM.

Also, this is not a checking for interest thread. It is a GM wanted thread. Only post here if you are a GM who would like to run a Monsterhearts game.
