Hmmm! Looks interesting even though I don't own or play HeroQuest. But I guess with some work it could be converted to the system of choice.

It was originally written for OpenQuest, and we still have the stats which at some point in the next month I'll release as a freebie.

Also HQ 2nd edition is virtually statless, its more of a framework of play than endless streams of numbers. So you can take it and use it with your system of choice no problem.

The book is technically systemless. There are very few mechanics in there, and you can easily ignore the HeroQuest keywords. As Newt has said, there will be a free PDF release containing OpenQuest statistics, which can be easily converted over to BRP.

Empire Rising is a browser-based MMORTS ...

Sometimes a single letter makes a lot of difference, as for example the difference

between Empire Rising and Empires Rising. ;)

Empire Rising is a browser-based MMORTS which is set in 1435 AD, a dark chapter in history due to disturbing conflicts among Christian and Muslim cultures and unceasing bloody battles between rival nations like Britain and France.

Is this a very cunningly disguised spambot? =O
