View Full Version : Wow Pretty Dead Around Here

August 16th, 2013, 20:31
I'm an old CoH/V vet who was disappointed with Champions pretty much from the start. Since then I've been looking to get that magic back but DCUO was another disappointment and a MMO version of Marvel Ultimate Alliance strikes me as garbage. I realize that this system is flawed but since the HERO system seems to not be supported yet I'm definitely interested in giving this a shot if there is any real interest.

Hello and welcome!

Yes, the M&M boards are fairly dead, there doesn't seem to be a lot of M&M players around. I didn't purchase FGII until it was announced that they were putting out the M&M ruleset. Unfortunately, it didn't catch on well.

It is a shame too because the template is quite nice. Yes, there are some issues but all-in-all it isn't bad. If I had the time to really learn LUA and the game system ruleset formats I'd love to enhance the existing template since the original author seems to have lost interest.

How long have you played M&M, and what edition is your favorite?

I am and old CoH/V player as well, I started in beta and was there through to the end. I share your opinions of Champions, DCUO and the new Infinite Crisis. I've also played every edition of the Hero system since Champions 1st ed thru 5th ed Revised. I don't like the changes to 6th ed so I haven't played it yet.

I have been looking to try this system out, but I only have a limited availability that pretty much knocks me out of any sort of games that occur. I own the rule set and it does indeed look pretty. I just wish I had time..

I run in a group that's almost overstuffed every other weekend. I guess the FGII forums are an ideal place to look, but you can always try to hook people into trying FGII on say, rpg.net or even the M&M forums.

The system was pretty much DOA. It came out in a stealth like fashion with almost no support or follow through. It's a shame because it was a good starting point and could have done a lot better then it did. I'm still looking to play but I am not aware of a game that made it off the ground here. We had someone who was waiting for emerald city to come out but that is years late so I am not sure if the GM is still around or not.

I've been in one game here that only got in one game session in.

I've not played/seen the rules for this but would be interested in giveing it a go.

I played Champions many years ago and found it moved too slow.

I've played every version of Champions from 1st edition through 5th. I didn't like the changes the DOJ did for 6th edition. Although I have many of 6th Ed books I prefer to play 5th revised instead.

Well, if there is anyone around who wants to play a 70s era game. I'm interested in running one. Hit me up!

I'm generally always interested in an M&M game. What schedule you thinking about?

I'm thinking possibly Wed or Thur nights.

Hummmm. That could be tricky depending on our respective time zones. I'm in Arizona.

Sorry about creating this thread and disappearing but, a forum that doesn't get new threads is easy to over look. Blackfoot's HERO conversion might just about finish this off, or perhaps it won't, either way that won't happen till a while after 3.0 goes live. So that said, if there is a game being put together, you can count me in. Fair warning though, I have the sort of imagination that comes with being a social recluse with internet access and a bit of a Japanophile thing going own, so things could get messy. Then said comics have been messy for a long time, just point me to the line I can't cross and we should get along. Maybe........ possibly....... hopefully.......... WE WILL GET ALONG!!!!!!!!! Now lets play count the psychological issues!!!!! <(^_^)>

Oh and I should probably mention the Central time zone thing huh? Holy complex Batman!!! Time to hide!!!!!!
