I wonder if MH will be useful for a GURPS Technomancer GHOST game where the monsters are a bit more out in the open in addition to the secret monsters type games.

I'm hoping it will have some advice to preserve suspension of disbelief in The Secret after something happens.

And/or advice on how to represent modern day society gradually becoming aware of supernatural happenings and setting up organisations to deal with them.

Hmm... author's perspective? To me, it seems perfectly suited, based on what we know from the DI and posts here.

FWIW, I was talking specifically about MH4 . . . it's a book designed to do A, but that also does B and C equally well, and yet B and C are not really subsets of A. But I named it after A because one can only have so long of a title before things start getting silly. :)

My own favorite is subliminal suggestion spells imbedded in news and reality shows by The Powers That Be. It wasn't a dragon fighting werewolves that caused that explosion downtown, it was just a fuel tanker that crashed, kinda thing. Some people can't take their mental reality map constantly being overwritten - a few cross over to know The Secret and join the ranks of those preserving it, others simply start conspiracy websites.

True. I suppose I should've said, "MH4 is a book designed to do S, but that also does J and C equally well, and yet J and C are not really subsets of S. But I named it after S." That'd be more accurate. ;)
