From Dresden Files too, Michael is probably the poster boy for Crusaders (and so would Sanya and Shiro, but Michael is better poster boy material). I guess that Thomas would be an Inhuman with Psychic Vampirism powers, Kinkaid an Inhuman/Comando, and the Archive a Sage with fnord points that moonlights as a witch.

Dresden Files can be a fun setting for Monster Hunters IMHO, as is the Hellboy universe (only HB himself is way too big, but hell, he is that huge)

Sorry, I didn't catch it. You're too cryptic! ;)

Really, I might not play Dresden Files with MH, but that's because I bought the DFRPG as soon as it was released, and I really want to try FATE. I'm going to use it to run my BPRD games, though.

The MIB exist and would be taken from GURPS Black Ops - greatly toned down and somewhat decimated in recent years, as well as from Conspiracy X (two sometimes competing organizations). Wolfram and Hart from Angel would be replaced by Arasaka as the main villian organization (the created a program called Soulkiller, they really need to be a demonic organization).

The White Council may exist, but it certainly wouldn't be at all limited to the depiction from the Dresden Files. It would more than likely be influenced by my own campaigns needs and sources I like such as Angel/Buffy and Charmed (I'm not a big follower of Charmed but I've caught a few episodes).
Okay, so Knight Rider, Robocop, Buffy/Angel, Blade, Supernatural, Dresden Files, Night Stalker, Charmed, Forever Knight. Care to add Gargoyles and Bubblegum Crisis? But seriously, Darren McGavin Night Stalker or the reboot, which I never really caught much of?

Don't forget Ms. Gard. What template best fits an honest-to-fnord fnord?

BPRD? or is this a different acronym I am not aware of?

RPK's hinted that there are more options than just the Templates we've seen. Otherwise she's probably a Crusader with some very specific Motivation lens. In the Dresden-verse honest-to-fnord-fnord's were apparently once mortal, if the conversation between Gard and Murphy at the end of "Aftermath" is any indication.

Original Night Stalker. I only saw one episode of the new version.
