Re: Looking For Players
I'm looking for a total of 4 players for my game I'm reviving. I have 1 player right now.

In it you are members of the Texas Rangers in the fictional Division G with oversight ranging the state and covering superhuman activities.

Re: Looking For Players
I need someone to take over my role as GM on my 6E Champions game. I have a team ready to go, but things at home need my attention more. The game has a co-GM who is working on his own team; he plans on running things in a different city, occasionally having plots that put both teams together (or have a hero or two come to visit).

So, anyone up for running Team One?

Re: Looking For Players
Last HERO game I GM'd was 3rd edition. I daresay things have changed since then.

Re: Looking For Players
I was just getting that set up when this came up.

Someone has kindly taken over running that team for me, so now it's up to them.

Re: Looking For Players
Savage Heroes is accepting applicants.

If you enjoy the stories of Conan and want to write your own tales of glory and slaughter then this may be a game for you.

Opening up to fellow Herophiles before posting on Looking for Players.

Re: Looking For Players
Yep, that's correct

Low Fantasy, no magic to start with.  Closest is the Divination skill.

Re: Looking For Players
Looking for one player to join my Dar Champions, realistic, gritty, Intrigue based campaign which started 32 months ago.

It is a different kind of Low powered emerging super powered game, in which the origin of powers is unknown and is based in a Hudson City, published by HERO, that is just breathing a sigh of relief after Crime Inc. was smashed and taken done, leaders either captured or killed.

No use of Money, a lot of House rules for flavor, all listed in Campaign guidelines.

This is not a Four Colored game, and it is dark (many applications of that adjective.)

You will be starting at the campaign start for points, but a rapid rise based on posting rate and you will start in a Solo thread until such time as paths cross with other characters.

I will ask players to post here for anything they would like to add.

If you ask me how long I think the campaign will continue, we are 2 years and 8  months in, my current players have barely scratched the surface for what I have planned, so I would say at least another three years.

I am looking for a player who has a stable life, can post at least four times a week, if not one post a day and possibly more.

I post at least three times a day for each player, depending on their rate.

I am so conversant with HERO mechanics I barely even see them, it's all narrative with mechanics acting as levers to get character work done.

Ask me anything here or in PM.

Re: Looking For Players
Highly recommend lensman's campaign.  Been part of it almost from the start; one of the longest running, best opportunities for character development I've had.  Great writing, great challening plot.

I quite agree. Lots of story development, plenty of mystery.

Re: Looking For Players
Hey so I previously ran a Hero 6E game on the site for a while. For personal reasons, I ended up fading out of communication and then coming back and announcing I needed to delete the game. However, I'm in a better place now, I think, and after having recently rewatched some of the Marvel movies, I felt like giving a game of this a second try. I feel like there were a lot of failings last time that I'll try to improve on. One is that I kind of came up with some ideas and wanted to stick too closely to them at times, even if they weren't good or didn't fit the team... So, what I want to do is get a group of 4-6 players, and we can all discuss characters together. Once that's done, I'll make scenarios appropriate for them to run through. This does mean there will likely be a few weeks without much/any progress after characters are made as I do some writing. I hope that will be okay. I'm looking to hear from the players what kind of game they want to play, but kind of in the spirit of the Avengers, I was thinking maybe higher-powered heroes to start out with, that act as the world's apocalypse response team, as opposed to a fresh team that handles whatever issues occur in their area. But like I said, I'm looking to discuss this more with my players when everyone's on board.

In reply to Cody Reimers (msg # 64):

It seems there are few responses to be had during holiday breaks, but I'll bite. I'm still trying to keep my game (link to another game) going, and would always welcome new blood. In addition I'm always ready to try someone else's game. Toss me some guidelines and I'll jump right in.

Re: Looking For Players
If you're looking for fresh blood, I suppose I could look at joining your game, Soulsight. For my game, I'm looking to get one more player; then it will be up to popular vote what power level and genre we play. Though obviously if I feel I'm not up to something (e.g. Dark Champions) then I won't be doing that. So no guidelines as of yet. I'm waiting to get one more person then conversation will continue at my game.

Re: Looking For Players
I've taken the plunge and decided to try my hand at running a game here.  Let's see how long it takes for me to crash and burn.</sarcasm>

I'm looking to put together a group of 5 or 6 like-minded players, with collaborative character creation and world building to follow.

Wish me luck.

Re: Looking For Players
It's a hard road your starting down. Sometimes you just gotta accept the silence.
I should know.
Yep, I would say I'm familiar with the silence.

Re: Looking For Players
Yeah, some things you can only learn by doing.

My big question right now is how long to leave applications open, before I begin my winnowing process.  I want to give people a fair chance without dragging this out unnecessarily.  I'm planning until at least tomorrow afternoon, a nice 48 hours, but I wonder if I should wait through Monday morning.  If there is a weekday only crowd I should give a chance to.

I have seen your game post and while I eagerly look forward to another Hero based game
here, I think you need to give a little more 'meat' in your game listing.

Re: Looking For Players
I've already got at least a dozen bites.  I'm just not adding anyone until I have all my applications in.

As for the lack of meat, I don't want to commit to anything until I've gotten a sense of what the players want.  That said, there is a concentration of applicants who like like the DCAU and the MCU, in addition to a GM with similar leanings. ;)
