Heavy Gear returns to DP9

After having the license for two years and not really getting the chance to use it, Steve Jackson Games (makers of GURPS) have returned the license for Heavy Gear back to the setting’s creator: Dream Pod 9.

So we’ve done the logical thing, and handed the Heavy Gear RPG back to DP9. It’s too bad that we can’t be involved, but the setting deserves the attention that DP9 can give it. Sometimes you just have to let someone else play with those cool toys, and be satisfied with your own.

Has been the Dungeon Master for the group since the early nineties. It all started when a school friend’s mother ran U1: The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh for him and some friends. Enthralled by this new thing he'd discovered, he quickly assembled a group of his own and began running games. From that point forward, he was hooked and hasn’t looked back since. He’s run games that run the gamut from old school to indie, and is always looking to try new systems or tinker with existing ones.
