Monster Hunter International RPG On the Horizon?

As announced by Monster Hunter International author Larry Correia here and here. Details such as publisher and system are sparse thus far, but apparently the current plan is to release the book via Kickstarter. That should be a sight to see, as in my somewhat limited experience Kickstarts (?) that have a premade fanbase tend to be quite spectacular. I hope Larry's got some good ideas for stretch goals . . .

In any event, being a big fan of the MHI series I'm quite excited about this news. I's tough to speculate on the details, though the author is a fan of Legend of the Five Rings (not that that probably means much). I could see this working in any number of systems, though GURPS is probably out due to their very similarly named, already extant series.

7 AUGUST EDIT: The Monster Hunter  International Employee’s Handbook And Roleplaying Game  will be produced by HERO Games for their Champions system. A Kickstarter campaign is scheduled for October.

  1. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard's King Kull story The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune and HP Lovecraft's Under the Pyramids.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog (either a normal book review, or a review of its suitability as gaming inspiration).

    If so, please email me: Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from Smashwords:

    I'll also link to your review from my blog.
