A hybrid of hero quest and warhammer?

Sure it has board pieces that you can join together with doors and the miniatures are just warhammer classic so you can still add to them. There's a DM though so its still heavily based on RPG
Dont look at me, I'm irrelevant!

Just wondering, does anyone ever MUD/MUSH/MOO?

I used to MUD a bit back before UO launched, then I switched over to that. They were fun for their time period, though I'm not sure how strong they'd be in this day and age. I guess it depends on the people running it.

I played the Discworld MUD for years. So much so that after many failed attempts to learn how to type quickly using Maevis Beacon and Mario Teaches Typing, after playing the MUD for so long, I realized my typing had just naturally sped up.  Pretty geeky and cool. -leeman

I wouldn't say Warhammer is really roleplaying, having dabbled in it.

Warhammer isn't roleplaying, it's turn based strategy.

It's weird. My friends are all like "Teh omg dat's too oldz skool 4 me", but...they aren't really. I mean, there's a harry potter moo..with often WAY over 50 people on at once. I'm on an ender's game one though.

Except for that roleplaying game that GW released decades ago which was set in the Warhammer universe.

I still have really really old White Dwarfs which have scenarios for that, somewhere.

There's Warhammer Quest which is the warhammer fantasy RPG and there's a couple of squad based RPGs, one for 40k and one for fantasy but their names escape me.

They released a new version in 2005.

I wish they'd detailed the setting more.  It is what makes Warhammer, WARHAMMER in my opinion.

They're also planning a 40K RPG too.

That is awesome. (Damn you, now I'm considering getting it. No! No more money from my pocket will go to GW!)

I can see the Warhammer RPG, but the 40K? Yeah it could be good but still they would have to bend some of the fluff to make it right. Though that hasn't stopped GW before.

Yes, but these are the same people that likely write Harry Potter fan-fiction in their spare time, so playing a text-based game likely isn't much of a departure. And when I said that, I meant mostly for me; I don't think I could go back to a MUD in this day and age. I much prefer roleplaying to be in person with a group. With pizza.

'Cause a roleplaying session without pizza ain't a session.
