Monster-Hunter based tabletop. Damn straight.
« on: August 26, 2010, 04:30:51 PM »
I was hoping to run a tabletop, probably in the GURPS system based on the Monster Hunter franchise. Nothing heavily roleplay intensive by design, but could be, depending on how you choose to interact with the world around you.

Interest?

interest piqued. i play and own both MHF2 and Freedom unite for the PSP, if that is the MH you are talking about? you will have to remmind me what the GURPS system is, for though it sound familiar, i can't recall from where.

I play a lot of Monster Hunter 3, myself, but taht is indeed what I am referencing.

GURPS is the General Universal Roleplay System developed by Steve Jackson Games.

As a General Universal Roleplay System, its hard to give an example. Its a system meant to be able to handle any kind of roleplay, from low fantasy up to high sci-fi.

Erm... its a tabletop system? Its a 3d6 roll-under system? Not sure what you're asking.

do you have any websites that you would suggest that either have some basic Gurps rules, or in pdf format?

Thank you for that, Vandren.

I'm sorry I hadn't answered earlier, Geradine.

NP.  I think I've still got a copy of GURPS Lite 3rd ed. floating around online, if you'd rather that than 4th ed.

Quite interested. Is this going to focus on hunting down monsters and making gear, or are we going to have a plot?

Also are we limited to Tri's weapons...cause I really miss gunlances.
