The Monster Hunter International Employee Handbook and Roleplaying Game is finally available to the general public. If you missed the Kickstarter, now you can buy it.
The game is based on the series of novels by Larry Correia. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc. exist, but they are secret. The government pays a bounty for dead monsters. The players work for a private company that hunts monsters and collects the bounty. The books are action and combat heavy, and I expect the game will be, also.
My book arrived today, but I’ve been reading the PDF for the last several days. The game uses the HERO system, which I have not previously played, but it seems pretty good after a read through.
The book looks great, and is well put together. It’s 302 pages, hardcover, and full color. Tomorrow the group is going to try to get together and create characters and run through some exhibition combat, so that we can get a feel for it.
As readers of my blog know, I’ve been painting a bunch of 15mm monsters and hunters, etc for use with this game. I took some pics tonight of minis I’ve finished in various situations, just for fun.
I’ll write up a report after my first play session with my impressions of the game.
