MEP is an independent RPG gaming advocate that
seeks to ensure the survival of the independent RPG scene and
the RPG community at large. MEP takes care of all your RPG needs.
Not only does MEP promote the RPG community, we also produce
pen and paper role-playing games by gamers, for gamers. Providing
unique expressions of many different genres, including new ones.
MEP's games are free.
We always put gamers first. MEP's ideas are
to ensure that someone in the industry is always listening to
the gamers, corresponding with them, and assisting them so they
may put their ideas to paper and share those ideas with others.
Making a product free won't neccessarily save a crippled art,
it will however give yet another medium for which gamers can
create ideas. Afterall, its all about the art, and that starts
us, the gamers. Art before profit. We are listening. Come, share
08/22/01: Some important things
to add. First, I've changed my legal name from Grant Graves
to Liam Wilson. MEP is releasing a new game, D20 Superheroes.
It is posted to the right under Newest MEP Material. I am also
working on a Net Compendium for BESM 2nd Edition, as well as,
the next issue RPGUG. Also, if you haven't seen it, you should
check out RPG Maker 2000, a great
way to make those old 16-bit SNES style RPGs.
07/04/01 #2: I've decided to open
a short story section (on the right-hand side) to help get the
creative juices flowing. I've released three short stories that
have gotten me a lot of praise. Feel free to distribute them
to others. Hope you enjoy them.
- The first is called 'Magebane'.
Its an experimental sub-genre I've been playing around with,
Magi-Punk. Its not based on the RPG, but rather about the rediscovery
of magic dubbed Flecting (Realmwalkers: Earth), only its been
served up to the masses via pop-culture media. Its a story about
rival high school gangs that use it against one another.
- The second is a TekHL short story
called 'Remi and the Tapper'. Its about a HLSNT on a mission
to track down a prototype corporate super-soldier. I haven't
met a person yet who hasn't demanded a sequel to this story.
- The third is 'The Black Vessel',
another TekHL story. This one is set to the tone of an urban
legend about "The Demon in the Shell", a serial killer
that escapes hell via the Soul Axis Network and possesses a
security agent to build him a body so to return to the mortal
07/04/01 # 1: MEP sponsors a new

RPG Underground released. A monthly e-zine loaded with RPG sources
from gaming systems such as d20, BESM 2nd, Palladium, MEP Light,
AD&D 2nd Edition, and many more. This issue is 1.24mb in
size covering 47 pages with images. I had to break it down into
three sections because tripod won't let me post anything over
a meg. At any rate, enjoy. We'll be looking forward to any submissions
for any gaming line.
RPG Underground #1-Part 1
RPG Underground #1-Part 2

04/28/01: Added the initial public release of MEP's Vampire:
the Masquerade-Redemption MOD, the Apoc Muse MOD v1.0. Look
on the right hand side for details and the patch. Also added
Hector Segovia's new game, Prisoner.
04/28/01: Added a gaming portal to the site, so now you may
play java games on-line through MEP. Also added two news sections,
cyberculture, and cool sites. Sorry guys, no RPG news section
available. If you know of one, e-mail me, I'll be sure to add
#3 04/27/01: MEP is taking some new directions with the page.
We are going to be adding some new things that branch off from
our regular line of things. Still things for gaming created
by MEP members, but things like Magic: The Database expansions
that we've created and Vampire: the Masquerade-Redemption Mods.
Make sure to check out the coming soon section on down the page.
#2 04/27/01: MEP has been awarded
the "Best Site Design" Award from PS2Empire.com.
04/27/01: We've added two new people to the MEP family. Chris
Magoun and Zionus. Magoun is the designer of Bostonia RPG. Zionus
of Dark Hunter. I really don't think I do these designers and
their games justice by placing them in the same entry, so go
check them out. They are really great games, and drop the designers
a line to let them know that their hard work is appreciated.
There is a link to their sites in the sponsored games section.
The designers are also listed in the MEP members section.
02/17/01: MEP would like to welcome
Hector Segovia to the fold. Hector joins MEP bringing with him
two titles; Assassins and Evolution: Gods at Play. Look in the
MEP Sponsored Games section to visit Hector's homepage, Nicodemus'
Haven, where you can download these two new FREE RPGs. MEP will
keep you up to date on new releases from the Haven.
02/03/01: MEP is back. It's been
a year since the site was last updated. I'm sure that many thought
that we were defunct. So did we. The other day I checked the
stats for the site. MEP is still getting over three hundred
hits a week, and as we promised to the gaming community, we'd
be there. It seems like everyone's listening for us, but we
haven't been talking. For that, I am sorry. I've busy with my
life, and a new baby boy. I have also been in the middle of
a short story anthology, so I've been incredibly busy. But now
it is time to get back to my roots, back to my first love, back
to RPGs. So here we are, MEP has returned. I'll post something
in the next few days, just let me write it (you hardcore fans
know how I am, able to throw out a couple thousand word sourcebook
from scratch). If you're still listening, so are we. Drop us
The New Free RPG Webring: a webring designed
to keep the free RPG scene together and in touch with one another.
It also allows gamers to access free RPG sites from a unified

be uploaded immediately.

- If you have
any interest in all in the card game Magic: The Gathering, then
you should get Magic: the Database. Its a free program (10mb)
listing the information in a nice card format of every card in
the game. Create new cards, change illustrations, create and save
decks, even play mock duels. Its a very nice program. MEP is currently
creating new expansions for the program, complete with card art.
We are doing the MEP expansion, TekHL, and many others. But our
first is for one of the greatest gaming series ever created that
would go wonderfully into the card game, Mega Man. We've been
collecting art, playing the games on emulators to get screenshots
and so on. Now its just a question of organizing everything. Look
for it soon.
- If you've
never played a multiplayer game of the computer game Vampire:
the Masquerade-Redemption then you have no idea what you are missing
out on, but I garauntee you, it is more than you can possibly
imagine. If any fans of this site have and play this game, please
get in contact with me so we can set up a game. Anyway, this game
begs to be modified, as you will see with MEP's Mod, the Apoc
Muse Mod v1.0.
Tired of carrying around a ton of books to a gaming
session when you only need the use three or four pages? Tired
of sacrificing sources or having to spend more money to replace
books when they are damaged? So were we... The Binder format allows
you to print games and supplements, place them in binder, thus
negating lugging around a ton of books to a gaming session. Instead,
all of your materials, characters, campaign information, games,
and supplements are arranged in one binder for easy access. If
material is ever damaged, you can always reprint the lost information.
By placing all of your games and supplements in one binder, you
create an ever-expanding compendium of gaming information.
