Of them all, I liked the ''end of the world'' synopsis.

I don't know The Hungry Samurai movie (sorry :p) but i liked the premise if it is set on Rifts Earth. but i don't think that would work very well if we had to keep our power levels down, a nearly impossible thing to do on Rifts.

So, for me, a Heroes Unlimited game seems the way to go. i really like end of the world scenarios like Crisis on Infinite eArthsd where the Heroes face almost impossible odds.

The famous movie I was referring to was Seven Samurai (and/or the Magnificent Seven, the anime Samurai Seven, and many other derivative works). Basically anything where helpless people hire warriors to keep them safe from bandits.

There's a scene in Seven Samurai where the villagers ask the wise old man how they can possibly hire samurai to defend them, when all they have to pay them with is rice. And the old man says "Find hungry samurai."

And by power level I mean, more or less, scope of power. No flying. No teleporting. No airships or convoys of tanks or summoning hordes of devils. It's easy enough to achieve. The only trouble with that scenario is that tactical planning in PbP is impossible. It takes forever and everyone gets bored.

So let's stick to The End of the World then. I'm dying for a chance to play Heroes Unlimited.

Okay. Let me see what I can get done.

You want 2nd Edition or Revised?

In reply to DiegoD89 (msg # 1):

I am currently running a Rifts campaign. The name of the game is "Dude, Do You Even Rift?" ( link to another game ) I'm a rather laid back GM who is open to most anything. You are welcome to take a look and send a RTJ if you like, and we can use this time to hammer out your character.

The PCs are currently in their second major story arc together, and they've gelled into an mostly-effective team. Because they are in the middle of a mission, it might be an awkward to jump into the action. They are currently hunting a specific vampire on the border between the Pecos Empire and the Vampire Kingdoms. It's a medium-power game with a Dragon Hatchling and a Sea Titan/Cyberknight being the strongest two characters.

Regarding the Nightbane request, I unfortunately just ended a Nightbane campaign a few weeks ago. I cannot help there.

Truemane, all of your scenarios look good to me also. Is your HU game to the public for slobs like me to apply?

Hi chupalob, thanks for replying.

I would have to take a look at the scenario and how many players you already has in your game. i usually prefer to start games from day 1 and with 4 to 5 players maximum. By my past experiences, the more players one has the more bogged down the game will be.

But in any case I'll take a look later today when I'm back home from work.

Re: Palladium Games (Megaverse)
A good choice and it's a game i would like to play, but i don't have the book yet. It's been on my radar fo quite some time but for some reason or another i always ended up choosing a different Palladium product, like Splicers that i just ordered this week.

What about Heroes Unlimited or Nightbane, for example?

Re: Palladium Games (Megaverse)
I would love a good Dead Reign game, Heroes Unlimited or Nightbane.  I would offer to run one, but right now all my books are in storage (just moved and still having trouble getting a place).

I actually thought about running a combo game, Heroes, N&SS, Nightbane, TMNT game mix, leading either to Rifts or possibly Dead Reign.

Re: Palladium Games (Megaverse)
Hey there,
I have run palladium games on here before but sometimes they simply never take off because it doesn't get past the character creation phase. I have run Palladium Fantasy and could possibly run that if we could get a couple more people.

On the Nightbane Front what are you looking to play ? Would you be interested in Beyond The Supernatural ?

Re: Palladium Games (Megaverse)
I hve no interest in BTS to be honest, Call of Cthullu seems a much better game for that. but Nightbane seems like a really cool conspiracy setting and i would love to play.

I'm also looking for a Splicers game, got the book last week and the setting really feels awesome with a Terminator feeling.

I would be very interested in a basic Palladium game tho I'd need a bit of help with character creation.I'm familiar with the overall rules but it has been over 20 years since I played Palladium and don't have that specific book

Just saw the Heroes Unlimited books for sale and planning on buying.  I would be new to the game system.  Consider me interested.
