Thinking about starting a Starship Troopers game using the free web rules of Barbarians of the Void.

Would there be any interest in this?

In reply to Gamergirl (msg # 1):

So... what post rate are you looking at?  I'm interested, but won't be able to post more than once or twice a week.

Do you intend to follow the novel, the anime, or the movies more?

Is the focus of the game going to be "Just Kill Bugs" or more political/strategic?

Will the game have all characters as Mobile/Mechanized Infantry, or will Fleet characters be a possibility?

Not familiar with Barbarians of the Void - how heavy a system is it?  I have a copy of the Starship Troopers RPG from Mongoose that I've never played (my tabletop group just wasn't interested.) I wonder how they would compare?  (Oh, I know... duckduckgo is my friend.)

Is it this one?  https://drive.google.com/file/...cmNzaEtvV1NvbWM/edit

Thanks,
D

It would definitely be more mission/action based than political.

It would be most like the animated series which has elements from the movie included.

I would prefer that most characters be MI. I might be open to one fleet or 'special' character.

That is indeed the link to BotV.

Still interested, provided my posting limits are acceptable.

I am interested, though I only know the book and the movie, not the animation. I see the last post in this thread was some time ago. Has there been any progress?

I am also interested.

Are those rules found by Horus the ones that will used?

I am fine with a slow post game. As long as we figure out a good way to deal with that during epic combat scenes.

any who... count me in

The link I posted is the correct link to the rules used.  See message no. 3, please.

Glad to see others showing an interest.  Hopefully Gamergirl is still interested...

Later On,
