Looking For Players
Have a game that could use more players?  While it won't substitute for the LFP thread on RPOL, you can post here where HERO fans will see for sure.

Re: Looking For Players
Imrunning a Champions game. The actual setting is a custom setting. Currently I have 14 players and I'm thinking of adding a co-GM. If interested PM or rMail me. I'm running a 6e game and this is my first go at actually running the system.

Re: Looking For Players
Already stated interest, dealing with some real life issues before sending the RTJ.
Can't very well do my best math if I'm exhausted now, can I?

Re: Looking For Players
Earth that was, got all used up.  Mankind left for the stars, trying to find a new solar system to populate.  They succeeded, finding a system with dozens of planets and hundreds of moons.  Many of these were terraformed to create hospitable environments for people to live.

The inner planets formed the core worlds and quickly became the most advanced.  Life on the outer planets is much rougher, where life and death come both quickly and cheaply.   Those core worlds quickly formed the Alliance, and wanted to bring the rest of the 'Verse under their care.  However, they did not expect the border worlds to wish Independence.

It has been 10 years since the war ended, who won is now irrelevant.  The Alliance now has jurisdiction over every inhabited planet, ideally policing the worlds and providing unimaginable comforts.  However, the reality is that not much has changed on the border, as the Alliance do not have the resources to hold them down.

Out on the rim, the laws are more felxible.  Many ships travel the darkness delivering cargo, whether it is on the right side of the law or not.



Welcome aboard the Nameless, being here obviously means you are interested in one of the currently Vacant positions on the Crew.  I am Lady Ileosa, owner of the Nameless.  Mainly my Captains are given free reign to transport and run the ship as they will, as long as I get my cut.

This is set in a Firefly-esque universe with a few changes that will be seen eventually.  It is also using the HERO 5th Edition Revised ruleset.

Re: Looking For Players
I am looking for one player for a Fallout HERO game.

In an attempt to preserve the vault society from rapidly diminishing resources and harware failures, Four shifts were created, three shifts would sleep in hibernation, one shift would be active.

ZAX computed the divison of Vault population based on a number of parameters, education, age, social standing, family structure.

Now you have been brought out of suspended animation to find the Vault in ditre need.

Told to find replacement T.H.O.R.N. chips, it appears you are to leave the Vault in order to save it.

This game uses the HERO system 6th ed. Characters start at 100 points., 70 base with 30 points of Complications.

Traits from the original Fallout will be available.

Re: Looking For Players
Hello people! Old and returning Hero player and GM. I have The Basic Hero (6th ed) rulebook, and pdfs of both full volumes of Hero 6th edition rules. Looking to play some Hero system games. I am planning to do a Hero system 6th edition Champions game on rpol if there is any interest... but it will be a while before I am ready to GM  and run a game ... just in the ideas/brainstorming stage now.

Re: Looking For Players
I only have the 5th edition, but I'd still be interested, depending on the setting and the nature of the campaign.

Re: Looking For Players
I look forward to there being a champions or other hero system game. So far I haven't had much luck in them lasting much beyond character creation

Re: Looking For Players
My last one got into the game, but I ran into problems with work and having too many players.

Re: Looking For Players
To many players can be much worse than not enough, I can remember game mastering a few sessions where I had 7 or 8 players. I prefer a smaller group of maybe 3 to 5 players, and I will maybe throw an npc into the player's group if they need help.

Re: Looking For Players
My typical stance is to only take 3-5 players, and never give them NPC help.  If they need that, then I should have an additional player to start with.  Usually, I just scale down to the group.

In that particular game there were at one point almost 15 players.  But I think if not for work I could have eventually managed all of them, being play-by-post.

However, with that being said, I think I'll open up a small 6e supers game.
