And the innocent bystanders duck beneath the furious blows of alphabet soup and journalistic flair.

Could we get back on subject, please? :-? What do people think of Witch Hunter? I'm tempted to pick up a copy and see what it's like. Will see if I swing by before the next extended trip for some light reading material.

Whitchhunter is fun to play; I just wish they had miniatures to go with it and a grid. This "imagine the play in your mind" stuff can get screwy at times. It is easy to learn, if you liked first edition DnD; you'll like the mechanics of playing Whitchhunter. You do it all in your head. If you don't mind that, you'll enjoy the game. It has a lot of white wolf stuff about it in its mechanics in play. Like DnD, it will take your character a long time to get powerful. I mean it'll take a lot of adventures. :D

Well I know they have two copies at the new store.. and so far no one that has picked it up has not liked it..

Best way to see if you like it is to come bye on saterday and play a game with a pregen character... if you like it.. get it.. if not.. no harm done

As much as Witch Hunter sounds intriguing, I have just way too many
systems I play currently and I don't have the finances to support them
all. I have not bought an LA book in ages because of having to divert
cash flow between LG and Blackmoor ( plus the sporadic play in our
area but that seems to be getting fixed soon... ;) )

Financially and in terms of time-wise, I lack both to be able to get into
this new system. Real life such as family, work, bills, and health come
first. I wish the system well however. I used to be an avid recreational
player of Werewolf the Apocalypse and have had exposure to
other White Wolf. If I were to ever play it, I doubt I would be able to
do so with any sense of consistency. I know the kind of PC I would
play too which is a shame.

Oh lottery where are you so I could retire early and have more free
time?

This is all fine and dandy but every time I play this game its don't bother briging out your miniatures. They're not used in the game even though these miniatures are real neat.

Some one asked for minis and I used my search-fu. They should be in line with the setting / theme. 1500s to early 1700s. Even has some Aztecs over at the Foundry (as well as Conquistadors!).

Folks,

Let's Talk About Witch Hunter

I tool various quotes from this thread and moved them there, so we can talk about the game aside from the argument going on here. Join me there, will you?

Peewee, The Stat Monkey God,, you're the man, thanks for starting the game day at the square. It was fun, nice to have a game of witchhunter and a game of Arcanis under the belt. I'm looking forward to next months game day.

It is a shame that no one else is around eleventh level in Arcanis. I only played two games last year with my eleventh level character. Anyway, I can't think of too many players out there around that level. It is a shame I am alone that that regard.

I stopped by the store yesterday and Peewee, The Stat Monkey God,, I think, was going on about cutting off someone's balls. I don't know what that was all about, but I got out of there pretty fast, as I didn't want to risk being next on the chopping block. ;)

I'm very protective of my balls. :P

And of course I was kidding. I wasn't actually concerned about meat cleavers being taken to the testicles of random players. :P Didn't see anything I wanted to buy, so I left. And considering how little sleep I'd gotten the night before, I decided not to stick around and wait for the next game to start (Good choice, as an hour or two later I ended up passing out).

Hello,

I'd like to thank everyone who decided to try out Witch Hunter for the first time as well as those who came back for more. From what Pete tells me it was a rousing success!!

I'd especially like to thank both the LA and WH GMs who made such fun times possible. Thanks to each of you!

Best,
Henry Lopez

First off let me offer my appreciation Henry for the amount of fun I had playing my first Witch Hunter game now that I understand the system, and the rules, much better than before.

I had the best time, I also was there with Greg Walker, and we loved the table, the setting and the way our character's got to interact with everyone.

Good job, looking forward to playing more of them.
