Hi guys!!

Im new here. My name is Ryan but everyone calls me Angel. I have been RPing for ever and a half and just wanted to drop in and say Hi =)

I have the following books: Heroes Unlimited (White cover), Villians Unlimited, Century Station, Mutant Underground, Aliens Unlimited, Beyond The Supernatural and HU GMs Guide, Galaxy Unlimited and Gramercy Island

Any idea what books I should get next? Im really big into White Wolf and the World Of darkness but Ive been thinking about possibly doing a HU game through Yahoogroups.

*waves*

Welcome to the boards!

I would recommend Powers Unlimited 1 & 2 for your next purchases.

Get PU 1 and 2 they rocketh with much gusto

also pick up mystic china, ninjas and super spys, Nightbane between the shadows,
and systems failure

the ninjas and super spy books give you a excellent marshal art feel and cool cybernetics

systems failure has great villans and sweet organatech armor that can be useds

nightbane between the shadows is a great psy book astral lords make the best villans.

Ditto that as well. Well, at least PU1 (I haven't purchased PU2). You already have VU, which is one I usually recommend even though it was originally designed for the old Revised version (blue cover).

On a related note, I'd recommend checking out the "On The Subject Of Revised To 2nd Ed Conversions" thread here in this forum. Cardiac's done a great job of updating the VU characters to 2nd ed versions.

Oh, and btw... welcome aboard dude! :ok:

Well then I will say it for you... Get Powers Unlimited One and Poweres Unlimited Two, both written by the person who posted above me, Carmen. :)

Should I mention again that the Casting gun is worth the purchase of PU2 or have I done that to death? :lol: :P :lol: :shock:

Get Powers Unlimited 1 and 2 - If you love Heroes Unlimited - you MUST buy them!!

And since you have VU which is 1st ed., check out my thread at viewtopic.php?t=16344 where I am giving the characters from that book the 2nd ed treatment.

Other Palladium books that can add to the experience (if you have the $$$ - however they are all purely optional "plug-ins"):

Ninjas and Superspies - lots of martial arts goodness to spice up any heroes game.

After the Bomb (Revised): Expands on the Mutant Animal rules in HU.

Rifts - Book of Magic: You will have to change the MDC to SDC, but it is a great resource for ANY spellcasting character in Heroes U.

The Compendium of Contemporary Weapons - not sure if Palladium still prints this but let me sum it up for you; LOTS of guns - a bit outdated though.

Nightbane - Through the Glass Darkly: Good rules on creating magic spells, as well as "living magic" and so forth.

Nightbane - Between the Shadows: Details the Astral Plane and the Dream Stream.

Scraypers - Sort of a "Dimension Book" for Rifts/HU. Sucks as a Rifts setting, but can be enjoyable for a HU setting.

Welcome to the Board Angel.

If you like alot of optional material that often gets left out of the core books I'd recommend the Rifter Series, they have soom good ideas and often expand upon some other areas. Particularly the issue with the Geiger Organization...#12 I believe. But they are all good.

I recommend Ninjas & Superspies, myself. It's got a lot of keen source material you have a hard time finding in other places; you have the option of introducing very advanced martial arts and highly complex and exciting hand-to-hand fights; and frankly, the Espionage Organization section is useful no matter what game you're playing, TMNT included. In fact, TMNT in particular, really, and HU, etc. etc. There's other reasons, too, but HU2 has a lot of really keen stuff anyway, so if you have that and N&SS, you can go a long way with few wants.

Seems like it is unanimous here that its a must need to have PU1 and PU2. I agree with them wholeheartedly.

Plus I agree with the comment about the casting gun. LOL

Comment: The Emolancer
..I would just like to say that yahoo sucks for gaming. The pop up ads are infuriating. Take your game to one of the great game oriented sites:

http://rpol.net/rpol/rpol-main.cgi

http://www.editors-wastebasket.org/

http://www.playbyweb.com/

..these are infinately better suited for play by post, and give the GM a great latitude of controls.
