Has anyone tried to make or play a PnP version of Halo ? If so, how did it work out? I've been thinking about trying a small campaign using Spacemaster 2 just to see how it'd work. Though I have to admit Halo would make a better skirmish miniature game.

Doesn't look like it.. but I thought it could be fun. I may still try it if only for a pick up game.

Me and a friend of mine were going to try it. You can find some fun Emblem and Armor customizers that produce a gif image based on Halo 3's mulitplayer. As far as rules and all that we were going to use D20 (not the best decision I think.)

Anyway it never took off as P&P gamers and Shooter gamers don't seem to mix well for some reason...

I only know that this one is a Halo PBP because it resides right next to mine on the PBP list :) 3:16 Feet First Into Hell (http://penandpapergames.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=188)

Why didn't you just PM Marley then?

I am here!

Actually that was a Halo-ish game, and we just used 3:16 Carnage among the stars.

Not really the most realistic game, but at the time Halo :ODST had just come out and I was excited about it so I latched it onto my sci-fi game and accidentally turned it into a Halo game.

Of course...then player interest died out and blah. I would like to try and resurrect it, but I wouldn't make it halo...not by a long shot. The game system doesn't fit the halo genre.

Saved the day a little...

I have that same problem when I see a cool idea in movies and I try to implement it into a game...

Anyway Halo would be a fine idea for an RPG, but it looks like you'd be a pioneer into the subject. It's a good thing really, since now you can make everything the way you want too and it'll be perfectly original.


But here's that armor generator I found some years ago and played around with so players could imagine their character better...

Enjoy.

I was encouraging exploration on the site? I don't recall now. It may of simply been it was the faster way to connect the two for me.

Well I am here heh. If you needed to ask me anything. I am thinking though that the game could be transferred...but not if you wanted to play Spartans. That is unless you didn't mind having your characters head, shoulders, waist, everything above normal humans.

On the flip side...a normal marine is no match physically for a normal Elite. So I guess Spartans are about equal.

Sorry to resurrect a dead thread, but I'm working on a Pen and Paper Halo RPG. Hopefully it takes off for the enjoyment of all.
