Yay! What's up? Have you voted on what your favorite House is? Do you have a character profile? ^_^

I have a horrible feeling that I know you.....

I have only played one House so far (Elk) and I enjoy it. To me, the way the game is set up House is damn near irrelevant. I can play the Snake who likes Beauty, or the Strong Wolf. Saying that, Elks are the best.

Hi guys,

I'm Bill from Australia. I haven't bought the pdf yet, but I will tomorrow!

I have to agree. It baffles me a bit that we have six different forums for the six different houses, when ven politics seems so much more than the houses.

Hiya.

I'm Nick the Nevermet, and I managed to read HotB in about 4 days, and it'll take me another 2 weeks to digest.

Hi. I'm Arnold. I'm just a gamer.

I came to HotB when a friend of mine shared his excitement for it's imminent release. I pre-ordered it for him, but then fell for it, and had to buy a copy for myself.

(Stupid me, now I don't have the special edition... oh well)

My favorite game of all time is The Mountain Witch, because the lines of communication between Player and GM are wide open. We experimented with Universalis. There's no GM in that one, and the flow of play is affected by bids and risks a lot like Houses. However, without a set direction (as there is NO setting provided in Universalis,) it's hard to get a consistent play experience.

I got to play Houses at Dragon*Con this year, which was pretty cool. I'm going to try to run it at MACE, and perhaps locally to see what come of it.

But if character creation is any indication, it should rock.

Hello, my name is Mauro. I`m from Argentina and I really don`t speak too much english, so sorry for my poor writing. I`m an artist, fan of classic oil painting, and now fan of HotB too. It's my second passion.

Well, I just want to tell you one thing John... you are a GENIOUS. Thank you very much for given me the tools what I need. Maybe some time I can give you a couple of my work of art pieces, with hope that inspire you in the same way that you game inpired to me. Congratulations for the quality of your work.
Drake.

Hi, I'm Charlie.
I played the demo on saturday at Dragonmeet. I'd already bought the book, but wanted to see how it played, especially with John himself running. I'd been an unaware Wick fanboy (huge L5R & 7th Sea fan without joining the design dots) until finding out about HotB and Play Dirty.
My players are already pumped about playing HotB and in a rather mean move I've decided to run it directly after a two-part D&D adventure someone else is running. The results should be fun.

Hi to one and all!

My name is Keith and I'm in Glasgow, Scotland. I missed the build-up of Houses (it happens), and just noticed it today.

The main reason for signing up here is that I've devoured the sampler and I'm really wanting a "real" copy - is it still in print or is a pdf the best I can get? I suppose I don't mind buying the pdf as a stop-gap if it helps fund a reprint or if there will be no other choice, but I always go for a printed/bound book if available. Also, any plans for a hardback printing?

Thanks for any help in my rapidly gained obsessive quest,

Keith.

The book is currently out-of-stock (a re-occurring problem), but www.indiepressrevolution.com is about to get a whole stack of new books.
