I saw a topic in the rifts forum for world books wanted by fans and was wondering what HU books anybody would want? Myself I would love about the early heroes. Like when they first appeared in this world and how the world initially took (or didn't) to the heroes.

I would like to see a book on how to set up a city. You know, kind of a suggestions for creating a setting more than something already built. They could call it Cities Unlimited and make it geared for supers in addition to normal folks. I never know how many people to put in a city or how to set up locales. Cities Unlimited could cover that as well as giving adventure ideas.

I still want "Magic Unlimited" with new magic category/classes that would work better in a Super Hero world and maybe different casting rules like PPE channeling.

I personally would love to see some of the comic artist out there put together a "Mechanization of Doom" Kind of book with story and new villains and heroes. That would vastly update the Heroes Unlimited books across the board. Right now I'm running a web cast http://strangecorpseposse.blogspot.ca/ trying to put a personal spin on the HU universe in a dynamic way. The heroes really might never make it back to HU earth but they are loving the adventure so far. Check it out for more inspiration.

This is the one I'd like to see. Partly because they might include the psi-builder power cat. I've submitted into it.

I say what the classes ARE even if the books mislabel them, so get over it.

Well I've written it before but one of my ideas was something like the Physical Adept from ShadowRun or the Natural type character from BtS where the person uses his magical powers to upgrade themselves and their ability at the cost of their PPE and/or spell casting. Maybe have it where they have bought base abilities like added strength and dexterity but then can either 'cast' or spend PPE to temporarily enhance themselves as well like if they need to make a super sniper shot or something like that which has a limited duration and will fade after they've used it and need more PPE or rest for them to use again.

Personally to make Psionics and Magic keep up in HU I've also dramatically increased ISP and PPE regeneration for my games where you still have you pool, but a mage or master psi who meditates for 8 hours can get back their full ISP/PPE pool. I found it REALLY helps with Psionic characters where one use of a Psi-Sword doesn't take you 5 hours of meditation to recoup from.

This was the proposed HU2/ATB2 book from a while back, with updated Mutant Animal creation rules, new animals (possibly reprints from all the old ATB1 books), an updated Bio-E system & (bum bum BUMMMMM) the return of Doc Feral & his corporation Bio-Spawn (that might have to be renamed, since the Nightspawn/Nightbane incident).
It was also supposed to detail the US government's own ultra-secret Mutant Animal testing facility, code-named "The Nursery", not only as a major foe for the Mutant Animal players but also as an origin point. My suggestion was for an updated look at.....The Terror Bears!
Think of it as "Mutants Unlimited".
