I should have looked at your profile before I said that. I think it'd be a bit far for the Hind even with Skippy at the controls. The rotor spirits would drink all the fuel and get too thirsty. Lucinda Hood could get you there with a portal rope, but maybe it's a bad idea to ask her for favors.
I'm thinking about it--I want to see how MHI will work. With my luck, though, it'd end up scheduled opposite some other hero game, and the con is the only place I get to actually play hero. Or is there a way to avoid that?
No it doesn't have to be an all orc game.
It's just as well. Basing a game on an exceptionally stupid pun probably wasn't going to go well. Though...if it were scheduled in the 8-12 slot Sunday night when everyone is punch-drunk with fatigue, it might be just the ticket.
For a one-off I suppose I could use characters from the books, but I'm not sure I'm ready to see how con-goers would portray Tanya, Princess Of The Elves.
The dedicated White Wolf fanboys probably don't read the Hero subforum, so it's probably safe to mention a premise I mentioned to a friend who has played a lot of WW and become rather disillusioned. The standard MHI scenario, normal human hunters with nothing but courage and Moar Dakka on their side (unless you're Owen), is probably best. However, I have, um, *issues* with WW's general setting, premise, and themes, so I told him I was very, very tempted to hack the MHI background and nature of monsters slightly just so I could bring the following game to the con:
When you became a monster, your sire and the whole clan expected you to dress in ugly black clothes, reluctantly feed on the living, and spend most of your time brooding uselessly about your slow loss of humanity. But that *sucked*, so instead you killed the whole lot of sniveling, whining monsters. Guess they didn't expect you to shoot them a whole lot with large-caliber weapons before even getting close enough to tear each other apart, but the marines taught you that fighting fair meant you weren't trying hard enough--once a marine, *always* a marine. Then you set out looking for some good guys, and you found them. Good guys with many, many guns. There's a bounty on your head now, but you got used to that in Fallujah. Welcome to Team Nonesuch, MHI's top-secret answer to STFU. Because even monsters should have *Moar Dakka*.
Definitely would go against a fundamental premise or two of MHI, but it would be worth it just to put that on the program.
Gillsing: Interesting fact about a movie that put me to sleep the first two times I tried to watch it at RPG cons. The third time I managed to stay awake, and was disappointed. Everyone seemed to like it so much. But apparently it was not for me. Story of my life.
