I know, I know. Today was supposed to be an Actual Play report (GURPS Jade Regent). But it was cancelled, so you get this instead.
I’m re-reading my Dresden Files eBooks.
This one’s just fun. Harry is a supernatural character, a Wizard, who eschews the Secret disadvantage and posts up a placard.
I read something like twelve of thee books; I believe there’s at least one more out since I set the series down. Largely because at the time I was reading them, I’d reached the last one.
I simply adore monster hunting settings in the modern world. I have always been a Buffy/Angel fan. One of my better campaigns was GURPS: Black Ops. The Dresden Files fits right in there, and Jim Butcher has an engaging, casual, and evocative style (see what I did there?) that really makes me want to keep reading.
And it’s simply built for GURPS: Monster Hunters.
Or rather since Jason Levine, Monster Hunters’ author says this:
. . . the MH series is based just as much on Vampire$, Resident Evil, Monster Hunter International (and sequels), Underworld, Van Helsing (except the TL), Night Watch, Blade, Supernatural, The Prophecy, Princess of Wands, Constantine, Ghostbusters (kind of), aspects of Predator and Aliens, older GURPS books like Black Ops and Voodoo: The Shadow War, and some magical influence from series like The Hollows and Dresden Files.
it would be more accurate to say that Monster Hunters was built for The Dresden Files.
And a lot more.
But seriously: if you want to pry me away from what I should be doing on any given night, just drop me a line and invite me to play in a GURPS:Monster Hunters game.
